Teaching Assistant in the Basque Country Program (TABC)

Qualified students participating in this program will have the opportunity to get full immersion into the local school environment, meet local people, and have firsthand exposure to the local community. Even if you aren’t interested in teaching as a career, this is an excellent opportunity to add experience to your resume, to give back to local children, and to earn a little money while living in Bilbao. Teaching assignments will depend on availability and scheduling restraints, and range from 2 to 5 hours a week. You will assist English teachers in class, helping them out, creating real-life situations for students to practice, and motivating local kids to practice their speaking skills. If you participate in this program you are required to take the mandatory one-credit course TABC: Seminar in Developing Effective Teaching Skills.

The TABC program is offered during the semester programs only.
