BridgeAbroad is pleased to announce the addition of a new teach abroad internship in Barcelona, Spain. The Teach English in Spain program allows participants the unique opportunity to spend the summer in Barcelona, while also gaining important professional experience in the field of education. Program participants will complete an online TEFL certification prior to arrival in Barcelona on May 13, 2013. Students may choose to participate in the program for 4, 6, 8, or 10 weeks. No prior teaching experience is required.

During the program, students will spend a minimum of 10 hours per week working in one or more positions, in a wide variety of English-language learning environments.
