Being a language teaching assistant abroad

As the end of this school year approaches and some students will be graduating soon, here is something that might be of interest to those of you who are already thinking about what to do after graduation:

As you will see, the application period starts in March annually, which means that, should you be interested, there is still plenty of time to gather all the necessary documents and get your TOEFL scores. Although the website states that the program is aimed mostly at students of Philology or Education, I know several Translation and Interpreting students who got accepted. What really matters is that you show a good command of both English and Spanish. Moreover, being a student at the University of Vic might be a plus, as Fulbright usually sends teaching assistants to American universities in small towns and they are more interested in applicants who have experienced and adapted to living and studying in a small town.

There is also another interesting scholarship to work as a teaching assistant in France, Germany, the UK, Canada, Ireland, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

The application period for this one starts in December.

I will be glad to provide you with more information if you are interested!

Have a good summer!
