Spanish Education – In and Out of the Classroom

Interact with people from Spanish-speaking cultures and backgrounds. Explore Spanish art and literature as you master the language. And, most importantly, teach others to do the same.

Prepare for a career in Spanish Education. K-12 Spanish teacher and tutor, of course. But also, intercultural ministry worker or missionary. Even work as a translator for international corporations and government agencies (like the FBI or CIA).


Experience Learning Immersed In Spanish Culture

Study Abroad

Language is about more than linguistics, phonetics, grammar, and composition. It’s about art, history, culture, and connection. Travel to either Spain or South America. Live with a Spanish-speaking host family. Maximize your learning experience as you immerse yourself in the Spanish language and culture. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Practice What You Teach

Observe real-world teachers and students. Participate in actual classroom studies and discussions. Teach lessons in local public schools. Receive critical feedback from expert mentors. It’s student teaching, elevated at NGU. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cross-Cultural Ministry

Attend local Hispanic-speaking churches. Serve and worship with fellow Christians in a language, culture, and community outside your own. Witness the beauty of God’s diverse kingdom as you fine-tune your Spanish-speaking skills.
