¡Hola! Me llamo Suzanne. I am a student and intern at Spark for the next six weeks, to improve my Spanish language skills and to gain valuable work experience in Spain. What I like most, is that I can combine my study programme with a work experience programme. Moreover, I will work in an area I am really passionate about – Spanish language and culture.
What I am going to do the next weeks? The Spanish language classes run from 10.00 -14.00 and after the classes I will work at Spark 3 to 4 hours per day. Every week I will organize an activity, a Spanish cultural event in El Puerto de Santa Maria or a city nearby. The other students can join these activities to experience Spanish life and the surroundings of El Puerto de Santa Maria. Besides, I will write about these activities in blogposts. I hope that more people will get to know Spark and I hope it will inspire more people to come here and learn Spanish at Spark while enjoying the culture of Andalusia.
On Monday I had my first cultural activity as a student, we went out for a local lunch nearby Spark and we had some delicious tapas and a refreshing drink. On Wednesday we went to Arcos de la Frontera, a beautiful village in the mountains that is known for its cute white houses. It is one of the many white villages, which are called Los Pueblos Blancos and I reconmend everyone to take a look there!
Already interested? The first activity I will organize as an intern at Spark, will be a drink at Playa de las Redes, one of the beautiful beaches at El Puerto de Santa Maria. But more about that in my next blogpost! Hasta luego!
