      WORK PLACEMENT
    "As a student of the University of Limerick in Ireland, a period of cooperative education/work placement forms an integral part of my degree. Being also a student of Spanish I intend to spend this coming semester, commencing in February/ March 2001, teaching English in Spain. Although, I can opt to have my University arrange a placement for me, this option restricts the level of personal choice allowed. I have recently completed a short introductory course in TEFL, which was hosted by my home University, however I can't help wondering if this will be enough to secure a reasonably good position should I choose to find my own. Even though I am open to suggestions, of all destinations in Spain, Seville springs to mind. If you could point me in the right direction at all it would be greatly appreciated. My degree is that of BA European Studies, namely law, history, Spanish, and German, and I am also taking Japanese as part of the Business degree."
