The Practicum in Education offers students with an interest in teaching and Spanish the chance to gain valuable professional experience over the course of a summer in Seville, Spain. Students enrolled in the Practicum work as Teacher’s Assistants in our Center’s “Playschool” program for Spanish children aged four to twelve.

Playschool is a 5-week language immersion program in an urban summer camp setting. Playschool students attend an hour of English class each day, but the goal is for Playschool students to learn through context-rich activities and routines that happen throughout the day. These include theater, cooking, science experiments, field trips, and more. In fact, much of the learning happens outside of the class, as students naturally acquire the language from the English immersion setting.

Practicum students who will work with these children will participate in all the activities the teachers do:

  • Prepare small activities during class time (such as ones that reinforce a grammar point or vocabulary set)
  • Aid with classroom management
  • Assist with crafts and manual activities
  • Help with preparation and clean up
Keep in mind that this is not a “theory only” practicum: it is an opportunity to get real life experience working with children both in and out of the classroom setting. It gives you the chance to see various learning methods applied within an immersive setting, from project based learning to context rich class time.

Practicum Contact Hours

The contact hours are divided in the following way:

Structured Field Experience: 125 hours in the classroom
Second Language Acquisition Study: 25 hours of individual study

  • 15 hours focused on the issues in first and second-language acquisition that are most relevant to children
  • 10 hours dedicated to the planning and preparation of learning and creative activities in coordination with Playschool staff.

Practicum Options

You may apply to just the 5-week practicum, however, many students choose to combine the Practicum with the Summer Term 1 and/or May Term. In addition to the academic benefits, the additional time allows students time to settle into Seville before taking on the Practicum responsibilities and interacting with Spanish students, making them more qualified teachers. Also, Spanish Studies Abroad provides a special tuition waiver and an extra week of room and board, free of charge, for students who enroll in both summer terms, making this unique internship a financially viable option for study abroad.

Practicum in Education (5 weeks, 4 credits)

The practicum dates align with Summer Term 2. Students work in the Playschool for 180 internship hours to earn four credits.

Practicum + Summer Term 1 (8 weeks, 8 credits)

Students that wish to boost their Spanish or earn more credit over the summer may opt to enroll in the Summer Term 1 prior to beginning the Practicum. Students will take a Spanish language or culture course for four credits. The course The Psychology of Learning a Second Language is recommended for students who will enroll in the Practicum.

Practicum + Summer Term 1 + May Term (10.5 weeks, 11 credits)

Students may combine the Summer Term 1 and the Practicum with an additional three credits of intensive language study during the 2.5-week May term. This combination provides students with the opportunity to a minimum of 11 credits over the summer and will better prepare them for their work in the playschool classroom.

Note: Students may also enroll in optional “Living the Culture” courses, each bearing one credit. Click here for details.
