My opinion on the Spanish as a Foreign Language Course for teachers
When I began to look for information about courses for Spanish teachers for foreigners I surprisingly found that there was not a single face-to-face course offered in my city.This really attracted my attention, since I live in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, where there is a huge immigrant population from other countries, with so many different nationalities and with quite an important volume of tourists, It seemed to me that the logical thing was to have one.
