Having just worked in Spain for a year in a Secondary School, I learnt a lot about how to deliver effective and engaging lessons to my pupils. Both the students and me loved playing games to make the lessons more interesting (even though language learning is of course very fun anyway!) and we developed a fantastic working relationship.
It's important to establish a students level of Spanish, and to, from there, develop lessons accordingly. As I took my GCSE's 5 years ago, and my A Level's only 3 years ago, I am very much aware of the pressure of exams and also of exactly what the examiners are looking for!
IES de Astorga, Language Assistant: October 2016- May 2017 I have just completed my compulsory year abroad in Spain, where I worked as a Language Assistant (Auxiliar de Conversaciόn) in a secondary school in a northern town in Spain. There, I worked 12 hours a week teaching English as a foreign language to students ranging from the ages of 12-17. Each week, I prepared my own lessons, marked work, and helped other teachers in their lessons. The varied ages of the students meant I had to adjust my lessons and teaching styles accordingly, as did the varied skill levels in English, meaning that some of my lessons were taught mostly in Spanish.
As I am a sociable, friendly and determined person, I enjoyed the challenge of often having to come up with ideas on the spot if lessons weren't working, as well as socialising with not just the pupils, but the teachers as well. I was able to build a strong relationship with the members of staff and students, all of which I did in my second language. This has helped to increase my confidence levels and abilities to relate and socialise with a range of different people.
As I am reliable and happy to work on short notice, I did not mind that I often had to step in to take lessons if one of the teachers was absent.

QUALIFICATIONS AND SKILLS:
A LEVEL RESULTS, SUMMER 2014
English (native speaker)
Spanish (current undergraduate student of Spanish and a level of C2)
French (GCSE and conversation level)
I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Sheffield where I study History and Spanish. I am a hardworking individual who loves learning new skills. I have an excellent attitude towards work which I hope is reflected in my academic achievements. I am a patient and friendly person who likes dealing with and helping other people and I understand the importance of politeness.
My studies of Spanish mean that I have just returned from my year abroad, where I lived and worked in Spain. There, I met a wide range of different people from different cultures and countries, and was able to make friendships all across the globe. In my spare time I love staying active and playing sports, especially football, which I have played for over ten years. I spent my first two years of university playing for the football team, and love the feeling of working together in a team. I hope to return to playing when I return to university in September.
Work Experience- St Benedict's Catholic Primary School Garforth 2010
McDonalds, Crew Member: August 2015- April 2016. This casual part-time job I undertook during my second year of university, and there I learnt many invaluable skills; the fast paced job helped me learn to work well and effectively under pressure, as well as the valour of working to help your co-workers.
My main role was to work on the till, but I also often worked on the drive thru and, if necessary, in the kitchen simultaneously. A key part of this job was the willingness to step into any role at a moment's notice and to effectively carry out the job to the highest quality. As it was a 24 hour restaurant, the varied working hours meant that I was able to use my friendly nature in many different situations, and I learnt that not every customer is the same, and to treat all fairly and attentively.
