Amazing experience in my favourite country!

Once I stepped foot in Spain, all bets were off, I was too excited not to succeed.

I started to realize all the reasons why I decided to come on this adventure were starting to play out, and I became enthralled on the experiences that I was gaining. I ended up getting a teaching job working Mondays Tuesdays and Wednesdays, then teaching private lessons on Thursdays and Fridays. It was a nice way to mix up the schedule. I moved to Spain with everything organized, job, accommodation, airport transfer and some weeks of Spanish courses to be inmersed in the new culture and language; but the School more than adequately helped me prepare properly and I built a successful life in no time. All in all my trip was amazing and was loaded with great experiences. Upon returning home to California, both sad to leave and happy to reunite with my friends and family, I found myself to be far more resourceful than ever before. I also found myself reassured with confidence, fulfilled with experience, and ready for whatever challenges lay ahead of me

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Like barnacles, baby eels are another expensive delicacy. Though they look like spaghetti, they’re actually skinned baby eels. We fry them with garlic, salt, and chili, and them eat them while they’re still hot. If you can’t afford the real angulas, go for gulas, a cheaper fake version (made out of surimi). It’s delicious as well!

The best summer in my life

The application process was a breeze as everything on behalf of Instituto Hemingway was handled extremely efficiently and Alfredo Orive and Jose Lopez were exceptionally helpful and was delightful in general in helping me to get to the perfect summer internship in Northern Spain.

The Internship was exactly how I imagined it to be, if not better. The tasks were the same as mentioned beforehand and there were no nasty surprises; I can only recommend working as an English teacher as it is an ideal experience for someone in the early/mid 20's.

Students were very pleasant and also my Spanish improved.

All of the staff were like a small family and I am extremely grateful for how they welcomed me and gave me the best experience.

It was probably the best summer of my life to live in Spain and work as an English teacher for 2 months.

What would you improve about this program?
I would have liked to get even more time interacting with the kids and their families but overall it was a fantastic experience. I just loved their willing to learn English and spend time with teachers.

I loved teaching English in Spain

The internship had fulfilled all my expectations, the tasks were as explained in the contract. I was surprised by the willingness of the managers and co-workers explaining me stuff I wanted to know and even more. My students were fantastic and loved my accent! I learned so much from as they from me.

The conditions were good, the manager have tried to always check with us how we feel, and we were free to communicate with him if we feel uncomfortable about anything and if it was within his competences, he did what was the best. I found my colleagues little bit hard to make friends with, but we have end up having very good relationship and interesting talks. It is very important to feel support from your co-workers and I can confess I felt part of a team.

I feel like this type of work is kind of easy for me, I was aiming for the higher position and I feel ready to accept more responsibility and load of tasks. I have been capable and responsible worker and it was noticed and appreciated by my workers and managers. I can summarise the internship as successful and enriching.

What would you improve about this program?
I wish I could have signed for longer than 3 months. It was a really rewarding program. It helped me to discover my real vocation. If I had to say something to be improved I would have said perhaps longer training to go to class with much more confidence.
