You'll work at a public primary or secondary school as an English Language and Culture Assistant, a role that is part of a nationwide initiative. As a native English speaker, you will be assisting classes or small groups of students in order to develop their listening and conversational skills. Many teachers are placed in bilingual schools where you may facilitate English conversational activities in subjects such as science, art, physical education, and history.
Exact responsibilities of Language and Culture Assistants vary according to each individual school. However, you won’t be left alone with an entire class of students, nor will you be responsible for grading, discipline, or the independent supervision of students.
Assistants in Murcia typically have 14-16 classroom hours per week.
Language and Culture Assistants in Murcia receive a monthly stipend of 800-915 Euros. For most participants, this is adequate to afford a comfortable lifestyle. If you’re careful with spending, you’ll have some money for fun and to explore Spain and other European countries. Your income will go further outside of city centers where the cost of shared accommodations, food, transportation, entertainment, etc., are lower.
Most participants also teach private English classes, either through their school or independently.
Participants have paid holidays around Christmas and Easter. Exact dates will be confirmed when the school calendars are approved in September. There is usually a two-week break around Christmas. Participants also have Holy Week off, which is the week before Easter. Official provincial calendars are available in September.
Teachers are placed at schools participating in an ongoing bilingual initiative led by the Spanish government, including primary and secondary schools.
You will lead conversational activities in English and give cultural presentations. You may also participate in other activities, such as music, theater, sporting events, English language clubs, and more. In addition to your classroom hours, you may be required to spend a few hours attending planning or professional development sessions each week.
There are a few simple requirements. These, plus a sense of adventure and a desire to cross cultural boundaries and engage with people eager to learn English, will make you a great candidate.
