Hello everyone,
I am a recent college graduate with a BA in Spanish.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what their experience has been like as a grad student studying Spanish. I'm not sure if I really want to study Spanish literature; I was thinking more along the lines of Spanish linguistics. Could anyone please tell me about their experiences? What is your program of study like?
Also I have thought about teaching Spanish-- how much will a MA degree in Spanish bennifit me if I decide to teach? (I want to teach K-12 not at the college level).
I'm sorry if this is too vague.
Any advice/experience will greatly be appreciated! :)

If you're interested in teaching k-12 languages, you should probably go for a masters in teaching. After that, I think the requirements vary from each district/city as to teaching a foreign language. I know in my district in Portland, Oregon k-12 teachers just needed to get "certified" to teach the foreign language.
