Spain 2015

In a continued attempt to improve fluency and understanding of the content I teach I applied for the ILEP scholarship to study in Salamanca for two weeks in July 2015 and was awarded this in March.  Under the program teachers pay for their airfare and are hosted for two weeks of intensive language study at the university of Salamanca.  Airfares cost over $3000 at this time of year, so together with the $10,000 spent in Mexico and the $10,000 cost of my Masters degree, it is an expensive business. However, with limited opportunities to retain fluency and continue learning here, the Salamanca scholarship is an excellent professional development opportunity.
