Un nuevo idioma

Translated by Go Overseas:

The month I spent in Valencia was fantastic. It allowed me to learn the magnificent language that is Spanish, to meet many people from all over the world and to utter from the city of Valencia to the fullest. In a month you can do many things in a city, visit everything, go to the beach and party, without being stressed to do the maximum in a short time. But the one I liked the most was the kitchen, which is very good. Who goes there has to try the most traditional food: Paella, Fideuá, Orxhata and Fartones.
Also, I think that who is going to do this experience has to be alone, because it is better to learn a new language and meet new people. On the other hand, a person who goes in a city to learn a language alone is freer to do what he wants.

Original Review:

El mes que pasé en Valencia fue fantástico. Me permitió de aprender el idioma magnifico que es el español, de conocer mucha gente de todo el mundo y de profitar de la ciudad de Valencia al maximo. En un mes se puede hacer muchas cosas en una ciudad, visitar todo, ir a la playa y hacer fiesta, sin estar estresado para hacer el maximo en poco tiempo. Pero el que más me gustó fue la cocina, que es muy buena. Quien va allí tiene que probar la comida más tradicional: Paella, Fideuá, Orxhata y Fartones.
Además, creo que quien va a hacer esta experiencia tiene que ser solo, porque es mejor para aprender una nuova lengua y conoce más nueva gente. Por otra parte, una persona que va en una ciudad para aprender un idioma sola es más libre de hacer lo que quiere.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?

Great Trip, Great people

I had a great time here in Euroace. They have good support and are very friendly. My teacher Alvaro was very patient and he made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease in class. They had a lot of different options for classes in terms of times and how many you want to attend and they are flexible. They also offer an open shared working space and use of their wifi in a quiet, air conditioned area for as long as you need.
They organised different weekly activities which many people go to and its a good way to meet others. The host family arranged by Euroace for me was in a perfect location and fitted exactly into what i had asked for in the form. I met a lot of people through the language exchange in St.Patrick's and through other arranged activities.
Thanks everyone! :)

What would you improve about this program?
A few more activities mid week maybe to meet people and go to new places.

Spanish Intensive Course in Valencia

I really enjoyed the course. I learned Spanish mostly by myself before coming to EUROACE, so I was missing structure and basic grammar rules. I enjoyed the teaching style in the school a lot, the teachers presented the lessons in a fun and engaging way, presenting key grammar structures but also introducing lots of conversations, making us involved and willing to share lots of personal stories, to make us speak and get to know each other. I made many friends in my class that I would keep in touch with after the end of the course. The teachers were always very enthusiastic in class and their enthusiasm helped me a lot to motivate me to study. We could also customize the content of the classes, so I could ask about grammar rules and other gaps that I had with the language that were outside the study plan. I really enjoyed the support of the EUROACE team, they were very reliable and and friendly, I felt I very secure, being in a foreign country, I felt I could really rely on them to help me for any kind of orientation and support related to my everyday life.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
My advice to future travelers is to use every chance to interact with the Spanish culture, to take part in the excursions and evening activities organised by EUROACE and to interact with the locals in different events like language exchanges as well as where you live to experience the lifestyle of Spanish people, make friends with the locals as well as use every chance to speak Spanish, also with your schoolmates, even though you may share a common native language.

Don't hesitate - go to Spain!

My study abroad experience was by far the best 5 weeks of my life. Immersing yourself in another culture is a challenging, yet highly rewarding process and Euroace is definitely the most friendly and accommodating group to guide you on your trip! If you're worried about communicating, they are fluent in English but encourage you to speak Spanish-only and grow in your language abilities. When I went abroad, I had already completed a Spanish minor and the amount of progress I made by speaking Spanish full time for 5 weeks was truly unimaginable - I began to have dreams in my second language and I was so moved by my experience that I decided to change my degree plan and major in Spanish!

The Euroace group is so personable - Isa & Jose get to know participants on an individual level through instruction and group outings, so you are able to have a personal connection with native Spaniards just through this program, not to mention all the others you will meet and connect with through your daily ventures, conversation exchanges and weekend excursions. I learned so much about the culture and language in only 5 weeks in Spain through the Euroace program!

My only regret is that I didn't spend more time abroad before I graduated and entered the work force. If you're hesitating at all, my advice is to go abroad with Euroace! Stay for a month, a semester, a year - the longer the better and the more you will grow in your language abilities!

What would you improve about this program?
I don't think anything necessarily about the program needs to be improved - I just wish I had stayed in Spain for a longer period of time.

Valencia 2012

I enjoyed the program so much that I have since returned to Valencia to visit the city as well as the program staff (Isa and Jose). The first time I was there, I studied with a group from my university and we had a terrific time. We were able to explore Valencia on our own and really experience the Valencian/Spanish culture first hand. Of course Isa and Jose helped out if we had any questions about what to see or do. They also set up weekly excursions for us that ranged from cultural museums to kayaking in the mountains and sailing in the Mediterranean.

From and academic stand point I learned more than I thought I ever could in only 5 weeks. The teachers did a great job of integrating our daily experiences into the class curriculum. For example, when we took a trip to the central market, we were able to experience something completely new (no markets like that in the USA) and were able to learn many new vocabulary words. After a weekend trip to Madrid and Toledo, sponsored by the program, we learned the different verb tenses to use in discussing the trip we just took. The classroom setting was inviting and fun, and we were able to learn from the teacher as well as each other.

What would you improve about this program?
I would have liked to learn a little more about the subjunctive tense. After being in Spain, I realized that the subjunctive is used very frequently. Our class focused a lot on the finer details of the language such as gender and number, as well as prepositions, commands, etc. This is not a bad thing because I certainly needed to review those parts of the language too.

I really have nothing to strongly suggest for improvement. I would not have returned to visit if I didn't enjoy myself the first time.

An Unforgettable Experience

Euroace are the reason why I have fallen in love with Spain and the Spanish culture. Their outstanding teaching methods, vibrant language exchanges, diverse range of cultural activities, but above all their warmth and generosity, have made every ounce of this experience worthwhile. Living in a foreign country and having to adapt to a new language can be a daunting task for many first-timers. With Euroace, you undoubtedly skip this step. They make the transition into your new lifestyle so easy that you're bound to be calling Spain 'Home' in no time.

What would you improve about this program?
If I had to change one aspect of this program, I would encourage Euroace to expand its office to other European countries such as the UK. I have been very fortunate to have taken part in this program and to have made so many wonderful memories. I now wish to spread the word to the next generation of Erasmus students embarking upon this incredible adventure so that they too can live through this special journey.
