El reto de hacer una práctica en Madrid. 2019-20_Capítulo IV: More about Education

Si te gusta el mundo de la educación, hay muchas más alternativas a un colegio en el programa de prácticas de Tufts-Skidmore Spain.

Os dejamos con algunas de las reflexiones que han hecho estudiantes en estos fantásticos lugares durante este curso y algunas fotos. Hablan de lo que hacían y sus recomendaciones:

Puedes hacer prácticas en una de las mayores y más prestigiosas becas a nivel mundial, Comisión Fulbright. También puedes incorporarte a trabajar en una radio en una consultoría o a ayudar con los más pequeños, de 0 a 3 años, en una escuela infantil. Si vienes a España porque te apasiona el deporte más popular de aquí y por el que somos muy conocidos, el fútbol, puedes entrenar a niños en el cuarto equipo más antiguo de Madrid. Por último, una de las experiencias más bonitas que se puede tener es colaborar con una de las librerías con mejor ambiente de la capital.

Club de Fútbol Moscardó

“I am an assistant coach to several youth soccer (fútbol) teams at C.D.C. Moscardó. I assist with practices while speaking to the players in English (most of the time). I am having a phenomenal time and would absolutely recommend it to anyone who likes soccer and working with kids”.  Alex Schnur, Tufts, Fall 2019

Al fin jugamos todos

“I was about to start making my podcast before we had to leave Madrid, and I also did a little bit of translating. Lino (CEO of organization) is awesome and very nice. I would definitely recommend this internship to anyone who is interested in making their own podcast and/or in educational media.” Ethan Iseman, Tufts. Spring 2020

“I am learning about the radio world. I am specifically learning how to create content for a radio show in terms of what to say and how to say it.” Isabel Gomez, Smith College. Spring 2020

Comisión Fulbright

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at Fulbright and would definitely recommend this internship! I learned a lot about the process of awarding scholarships to US students as well as Education USA’s work to help Spanish students apply to US colleges. It is definitely a lot of office work which I do by myself on the computer, so if you like working with a team this internship probably is not the best.” Ryan Albanesi, Tufts. Fall 2019

“Fulbright is divided into various departments, all of which I got a chance to work with. Their employees also include Spaniards and Americans, all with different professional, personal, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds. Begin an international organization, English and Spanish are sometimes used interchangeably around the office. The work to be done varies depending on the time of year, but there is always some form of outreach, data upkeep, or odd jobs to be done. Overall, this is a genuine intercultural space. It may not provide complete immersion, but it is a welcoming space for all levels of language and there is always something to be learned. The work, as well as building relationships with the people, is very rewarding, and I would highly recommend this internship, especially for people interested in international affairs or education”. Dylan Grant, Tufts. Spring 2020
