BA in SPA Spencer Chowning to teach English in Spain in Fall 2018

Spencer Chowning in Spain

Spencer Chowning, EKU Honors student in History and Spanish, will be teaching English in Spain this fall through the Council On International Education Exchange Teach Abroad program (  The CIEE program sends Language and Culture Assistants support local teachers by facilitating conversational activities and cultural exchange in English. Language and Culture Assistants work for an academic year at a Spanish public school. Assistants teach 12-16 hours per week and usually have three-day weekends with plenty of time to explore Spain, and other countries in Europe.

Graduating Summa Cum Laude this Spring, Mr. Chowning has traveled to Spain before:

"I will be living near Madrid and staying at least a year. This will be my second time traveling to Spain, the first being with EKU Study Abroad and SOL Education. However, neither would have been possible without my experience in the Spanish Program.  In addition to strengthening my language skills, I’ve learned a good work ethic, cultural competency, and a drive to visit and learn about other cultures."

Congratulations to Spencer on this fantastic opportunity!
