dc.description.abstractMy student teaching experience was in an American school located in Quito, Ecuador. This turned out to be a double experience, not only student teaching but living and learning in a foreign country and culture. The school is bilingual with over 3,000 students, grades K-12. The high school, in which I taught, is divided into two sections, the national and international section. The national section has classes mainly given in Spanish, with only their English and possibly one other class in English. The international section's classes are taught completely in English. All of the students in both sections are supposed to be bilingual, but I found many students had difficulty with English. However, I worked in the national section, where the students hear and use less English than the international students, so this may be a reason for their difficulty. I taught in English instead of Spanish to give them more practice with the language. The administrators are almost all bilingual. There is a general director, a consultant, a secondary principal, two vice principals, coordinators of departments and teachers.en_US
