Preparation:

This course is aimed at teachers of Spanish as a Foreign Languages and provides the acquisition of new language and learning skills they can apply in their own classrooms. To this end, the course will provide expertise on the latest methodological currents in the teaching of Spanish as a Foreign Language and the participants will learn about all the skills needed by the Spanish teacher, his/her resources and strategies.
The design of the course aims to develop the practical aspects of interactive teaching of the language, paying particular attention to the use of different materials (audiovisual, Internet, games, written materials, etc..), types of lessons, student evaluation, solutions to potential problems that arise in class, etc.

* Participants will receive a needs analysis questionnaire prior to the start of the course in order to determine their priorities where they can also rate the different possible content options in order of preference. It should be completed and send to us a month before the start of the course. The tutors will adapt the contents to the interests of the participants.

Objectives:

Methodology:

The course design deals with theoretical and practical aspects of teaching language in general and in particular Spanish, paying special attention to the interdisciplinary relationship of different sciences and their confluence in the profession of teaching, through the use of diverse didactic materials , in both digital and in more traditional formats.

This course is based on group learning and the stimulation of the classroom so that the participants experience the same procedures that they can then transfer to their students. In CEI, you will not only be able to catch up on the use and mastery of the most current methodological tendencies in the teaching of Spanish and the different skills that the Spanish teacher needs, but you will also equip yourself with the needed resources and strategies. You will be able to get to know yourself better and exchange ideas with other participants to improve your level of knowledge of both the language and its methodology.

Follow up

We will stay in touch with course participants through the Internet and email, resolving any doubts that may arise, advising on various aspects of the teaching of Spanish, evaluating materials and sharing experiences.

"Among several language centers I have chosen the Cervantes School International because first I saw on their website a course intended for teachers and second I have always had clear and accurate information whatever I asked for, just from the first moment I put me in contact with the administration of the school. The staff is very attentive and willing to help you whenever. There are organized many activities that help you to deepen your knowledge about the history and the culture of Spain. The course that was offered to me covered the topics I had indicated in the previous questionnaire. The apartment corresponds in everything that was agreed before. The course taught by Patricia was interesting. She puts a special focus on linguistic and grammatical issues. And so it was interesting the course taught by Manuel who explains the use of audiovisual materials and pictures in the lessons. I would recommend this training course for teachers who are interested in further training in their profession."

"The course has been really interesting. I learned a lot of things regarding the use of Internet in class. In class I learned many things by playing game in Spanish, which has proved to be a very good way of learning a new language.
Furthermore, we went through the grammar again, which was particularly good for me as I learned more about some specific issues that were difficult for me in Spanish.

"I liked that the teachers were really prepared to work new techniques with teachers. The activities were exactly what I expected.

It was a really good course, from the point of view of the time dedicated to make exercises and also to the theory content.
I loved the interactive methods of teaching that for sure I will use in my Spanish lesson in Rumania."

"Malaga is a wonderful city located in the south of Andalusia that is really interesting. Cervantes Escuela Internacional makes possible attend to the lessons and at the same time enjoy the sun, the sea and the beach because is located really close to the beach. Also you can take lunch and enjoy the sea views because the beach is located few minutes from the school. The school offers many courses and levels and the teachers have a huge experience teaching Spanish to students of all around the world. It is also possible find other ELE teachers and because of this I chose a course for teachers and  learn more about how to teach this language.
The school also offers activities during the evenings and you can visit places outside Malaga that make more interesting your time in Málaga.
To those who are interested in learn Spanish I fully recommend Cervantes Escuela Internacional."

"Soy Francis Atemo de nacionalidad keniana. Trabajo en la escuela Internacional de Kenya como profesor de español y cada verano me gusta ir a España para hacer cursos de formación de profesores de español como lengua extranjera. Este verano fui a la escuela Cervantes para formarme y tuve una buena experiencia. La escuela está bien ubicada y te ofrece la oportunidad de conocer a otros profesores de español tanto nativos como extranjeros. Intercambian ideas entre ellos y nos enseñan nuevos cambios y metodologías actualizadas en la enseñanza de español, tomando mucho en cuenta las necesidades de los profesores que hacen el curso en sus centros de enseñanza. Me ha sido de gran ayuda y con toda seguridad recomiendo la Escuela Cervantes a todos!!!".
