Bienvenidos! I participated in the North American Language Assistant Program from 2014-2017 in the regions of Galicia and Madrid, Spain. I taught students ages 3-12 and learned so much about teaching and living in Spain during that time frame.
Now I work as a freelancer in Madrid and I primarily focus on translating, writing, teaching, and consulting. In the coming months, I will be adding lots more content here about applying to the program, packing and preparing for your time here, applying for the student visa and later on, after you’ve landed: getting your temporary residency card, applying for an autorizacion de regreso if you want to travel home for Christmas break or over the summer without your current student TIE card, what it’s like to teach at a school, reapplying for another year in the program, how to enjoy your life here to the fullest and more!
Keep checking back to this page as I update it fairly often and add more posts related to auxiliar life and how to make the most of your time while participating in one of the programs.
