My experience studying abroad in Spain:

The internship portion of the year experience abroad in Spain is a great opportunity. My minor at St. Lawrence is Education, so I was interested in doing anything related to that field. I was very lucky and I was able to be a teacher’s assistant at an Institute known as Salvador Dali in Madrid. I worked with four teachers from the English Department and along with assisting them in class I also prepared classroom activities and helped them with grading assignments. My intense five weeks at the Institute, as well as being able to work throughout the spring semester with the teachers, and students ranging from the ages of 12 to 20, has been a very valuable experience.
