Agentina mi pais

Translated:
My experience in Cordoba has taught me many things, the first was learning to deceive myself and discover another culture and another country. Then I learned another language that I like a lot.
Regarding my project with the children of the jadin I really like to work with the dreams and the children learned the patience and the real work because there are many things to do that I did not do in France and I saw the difference between France and Argentina that need some implication and difficulties to make the spots I felt very useful for this, learn a lot in the value of things. The people that they bring here are very nice and very invested for the children. My accompaniment helped me a lot because before I do not speak a word of Spanish, it is necessary to learn a little bit of the language. There is a free school to understand the necessary to communicate. My tutoring was very nice and I took care of myself during all the time of my project.
An experience that I do not forget for all my life ..

Mi experiencia en Cordoba me ha ensenado muchas cosas , la primera fue aprender a engañarme sola y descubrir una orta cultura y otro pais . Entonces apreder una otra idioma que me gusta mucho .
Referente mi proyecto con los ninos del jadin me gusta mucho de trabajar con las suenos y los ninos aprendido la paciencia y el verdadero trabajo por que hay muchas cosas a hacer que no haciia en francia y vi la diferenciaentre francia y agentina que necesitomas implicacións y dificultades para hacer las manchas me sentí muy útil por esto, aprende mucho en el valor de las cosas. La gente que trajan aqui son muy simpatico y muy investido para los ninos. Mi acompanamiento me servio mucho por que antes no hablouna palabra de espanol necessito des apreder un poquito la idioma hay Escuela gratis para entender el necesario para comunicar . Mi tutoria fue muy simpatica y se oscupar de yo durante todo el tiempo de mi proyecto . Encontro mucho gente que tiene un lugarmuy importante en mi corazon en particular mi familia de Cordoba Analia y Julio me encanta de vivir con ellos son muy adorable y me extreno much todo el tiempo , volviste para le ver y presentarlos a mi mama .
Una experiencia que no olvido para toda mi vida ..

My great experience in Cordoba

I was in Cordoba for four Month. It was my first time being out of Europe and traveling to South America. I visited a Language school and volunteered in a Football-club. Everybody welcomed me openhearded and friendly. The organasation was very reliable and could always count on them. It was one of the best ways to get my first experiences in another continent and in a different culture. I got to know a lot of lovely people to whom I still am in contact. During my time in the Football-club I had the chance to train children. It was a really amazing experience and I could learn Spanish very well in talking to natives.

I would always travel with this organisation again.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
It was very surprising to experience the lifestyle of the South Americans in their daily routine.
