Join a Professional Development Seminar This Summer
Every summer, Spanish Studies Abroad offers a course in Seville, Spain called Culture in the Classroom for teachers, or soon-to-be-teachers, of Spanish. This course is specifically designed to develop instructional curriculum in the field of Spanish language pedagogy.
For both veteran teachers of Spanish as a second language, and university students preparing to work as an educator, this course offers a unique professional development experience focused on deepening intercultural knowledge and experiences.

Experiential Learning: Reflective Practice
Culture in the Classroom is a dynamic seminar presenting practical strategies for integrating grammar, reading, writing, speaking and listening into cultural activities. It provides opportunities to observe Spanish language and culture classes being taught at our Seville Center, a historic mansion downtown, and to discuss methodology and strategies with professors in round-table discussions.
Participants keep a journal to record and reflect on a wide array of strategies and tools for integrating cultural themes into their lesson plans. By the end of the course, they will have a portfolio of materials to incorporate into activities and exercises in the classroom.
Cultural Immersion: Host Families
| Through living with a host family, participants integrate experience with pedagogy.
Everyday learning is brought into the classroom to expand cultural perception and improve Spanish language instruction.
