IMPORTANT NOTICE: During the campaign for the Language Assistants Program 2015-2016, we discovered fraudulent online application forms that forge the corporate identity of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport for unlawful purposes. These false application forms send you to a website containing a form that asks for bank information for you to make payment for registration in the program, flights, etc.

The Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport reminds candidates that registration in the program is FREE and WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR OR REQUIRE ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION ABOUT BANK CARDS AND/OR ACCESS CODES NOR WILL WE DEMAND ANY PAYMENT through electronic mail or any other means.



Participants in our programs are eligible to receive discounted airfare through Iberia. If you are interested, please use this link to buy your tickets.
