Positions desired / Seeking Job Opportunity in Salamanca, Spain
« Last post by abecerra on August 11, 2016, 04:47:06 AM »
Hello,

My name is Amy Becerra and I graduated from Lamar University in May 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in Spanish. Since graduation, I have had the opportunity to work as a Spanish teacher at Memorial High School and as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Madrid, Spain. As a Spanish teacher at Memorial High School, I taught students from diverse backgrounds. I was also able to serve as a mentor to my students and see first-hand what their needs are. 

As a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant abroad, I utilized my knowledge and skills to improve communication and relationships between people from the United States and Spain to foster collaboration in community development. I also played the leading role in preparing 3rd ESO students for the Global Classrooms: Model United Nations (UN) Program and provided assistance to permanent teaching staff in various subjects and grade levels. Outside of the classroom, I collaborated with teachers and students to improve the school’s community garden and incorporated gardening with the classroom curriculum. I also created an international pen pal system with students in Spain and in Texas to increase mutual understanding and encouraged cultural and language exchange.

Once my Fulbright grant period ended, I returned to the U.S. where I am currently staying until the third week of September 2016. Upon my return to Spain, I have plans to live in Salamanca. Therefore, I am currently looking for job opportunities in the area.

I have included my CV detailing my experience and education. If there should me any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me via email at amy.m.becerra@gmail.com

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Yours sincerely,

Amy Becerra

I did it.   The spanish embassy doesnt physically ask you to give up your citizenship per se.   In fact, US and Spain do NOT have reciprocal relationships, and thus this would be very difficult to prove either way.  The spansh embassy lady said it was just a verbal formality in that you then COULD NOT USE YOUR US PASSPORT in SPain if something came up since signed that you had 'given up your US rights if on Spanish soil"

Also, you cannot renounce your US citizenship unless you are physically on US ground.  That is, a US embassy or US soil, so even if you said you did, it wouldnt be recognized by US authorities

Anyone that has been here please chime in.

I have received my placement for BADAJOZ. I am also taking my wife & newborn. Is there a reasonable chance I will be able to get plenty of work teaching private English lessons to supplement the income?

Also any info you know about the place you have experienced would be welcome, I have watched the promotional video & read about the place but first hand experience is more valuable to me.

We are also taking our child. I also would like some clarification from anyone who's successfully got a visa for their spouse or child.

According the the student visa info & what others have said, every person coming with me needs their own visa & visa appointment.

So my question is this: Since they are getting their visas because of mine (student visa), do they need to have separate insurance to cover them. And do I need to show financial means to provide for their entire stay?

Expatriates in Spain / Costa del Sol - good places for senior expats to live?

Hola a todos!

Can anybody recommend urbanisations or places to live which would be good for an elderly British couple?
My parents are looking for a place in the Marbella/Estepona area and are hoping to find somewhere with similar aged people for socialising.

Thanks in advance!

Finding work in Spain / Part-time TEFL courses
« Last post by samasher on May 26, 2016, 05:51:57 PM »
Hello,

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the difference between part-time and full-time TEFL courses? My current work schedule won't allow me to study full-time for a month but I did find this course: https://www.tefl-iberia.com/courses/part-time-tefl-course-barcelona/

Does anyone know if part-time courses are as well recognised / respected as the regular full-time courses?

Thanks

Visas & Immigration / Insurance and the Auxiliar program
« Last post by Lotus123 on May 17, 2016, 04:05:49 PM »
Hey there,
For those on the Auxiliar program....
It's confusing, do you get insurance after you get in to Spain?  Because it seems you need it to get the visa. 
If we do have to get our own health insurance,
Anyone from US get a cheap easy option for staying in Spain? 
Many thanks!

Speaking of DELE, if you fail the exam first time time around, can you retake it?
