Anyone from North America aspiring to a career in education, or simply wanting to spend a year in Spain should take advantage of the great opportunities on offer from the Spanish Ministry of Education. Applications for the Ministry’s Language and Culture Assistants Program will be open from November 7th to March 31st, providing 2000 placements from September 2012 to May 2013 across the whole of Spain. To be eligible you have to be a junior or senior college student or a recent graduate and hold U.S or Canadian citizenship.
