Oportunidad para estudiar en España

I am writing to you because Tia Tula Spanish School, in collaboration with the Government of Spain (Junta de Castilla y Leon), is offering partial scholarships of one week for Spanish teachers in the US at high school, college or university level, with Spanish teacher training/ refresher course, accommodation, cultural activities, and travel insurance included.

It is a great opportunity to meet other Spanish teachers, find new methodology and resources for class, and visit Spain and Europe during summer! Last summer scholarship programs were also a success and teachers had an amazing time in Salamanca.

We would like to know if you could share this information on your website and social networks, as well as by email to your members. Therefore, if teachers are interested, they can apply for it. http://www.tiatula.com/scholarships-for-teachers/usa-canada/

I can also send you an email with further information about our programs for high school and college students. Just let me know which email address I can write to.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We will be pleased to help you!

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Cristina Martin – Tia Tula Spanish School

Annual conference

Hola a todos, hemos decidido cancelar la conferencia de otoño en parte para no coincidir con ACTFL este año. Esperamos verlos en Boston.

The officers of AATSP García Lorca want to announce that there will be no fall 2016 conference this year. Attendance has been quite low the last few years and we felt like it would be better to take a break, regroup and try to understand how to revitalize the conference. In addition, we felt like we might be competing with ACTFL.

We encourage everyone to attend the AATSP meeting during the FLAME conference and weigh in.

We regret any inconvenience this might cause. We will offer a fall conference again in 2017.
