Jenna’s Answer

No one knows how difficult your journey to your goal will be, but there is definitely a need for teachers in foreign languages. Whether it is teaching abroad, teaching in a school system, private lessons or instructions in a corporate setting, there are a lot of opportunities, but it is competitive. Concentrate on really speaking and applying the language and all of those grammar rules and vocabulary you are learning now, then spend some time immersed in the language with native speakers to make sure you own it. Volunteering to tutor or teach lower-level learners will also help you refine your teaching style and reinforce what you know. Buena suerte!

While it can sometimes be difficult to secure a job at your top choice of school, there is always a huge need for foreign language teachers. If you cannot gain employment at the school of your choice, try working for a couple of years someplace else to get experience and then transferring.

Matthew’s Answer

Hi Brenda!

I previously was a high school Spanish teacher and I found there to be quite a high demand for foreign language teachers, not just Spanish. The overall understanding that learning a foreign language is not only beneficial professionally but also to increase one's cultural awareness will only increase the demand in my opinion. I agree with Jenna, really understand the nuances of the language and grammatical structure. Learn the intricacies of different dialects and regions. This will make your Spanish more rounded and informed, and will help with those random questions you will inevitably get, and more often then you would think. I hope this helps!
