As a French and Polynesian girl, I have always enjoyed discovering different cultures and traditions, including learning a foreign language.
Thanks to the warm welcome from the Spark team, an adventure is opening up for me. I discovered the beautiful Spain and the authenticity of its inhabitants but also a competent and motivated professional team and a perfect organization.Read More
En El Puerto de Santa María me acogió una de las familias más cariñosas para mis prácticas de dos semanas. Aprendí de ellos a ser siempre abierta y a no tener miedo de hablar español. Me convertí en parte de su familia y admiré su naturaleza positiva en muchos aspectos. Disfruté mucho de la estancia y me recordó lo que realmente importa en la vida.Read More
Ahora mis dos semanas en España y, por lo tanto, también aquí en Spark han terminado. Durante este tiempo hice un programa de work y study y viví en una gran familia anfitriona que me dio una calurosa bienvenida. También aquí en Spark siempre me he sentido cómodo y bienvenido.Read More
This is my last blog post about language with a little video about to summarise all my posts and underline the main message I wanted to tell :).
Hey,it’s me again 🙂
Today I will talk about my personal experiences with different languages, countries and cultures, especially the experiences I have made so far here in Spain. First of all this is not my first time in an other country, I already traveled much in my life and did two student exchanges, one in France last year and one a few week ago in Slowakia. There is a big difference between staying in a hotel in summer break or actually live in a spanish or french family and go to school or having work experiences.Read More
My name is Gisele I’m 16 years old and I’m from Germany.
This is my blog and I will write about my experiences here in Spain and what I learned, especially the language. Because this is exactly what I want to clar up about: our language is something that connects the world. Language is an instrument that gives us the opportunity to communicate with people around the globe. This was the main reason for me to decide to do my work experience in Spark, language schools are the key to this connections.Read More
After completing the internship and the Spanish programme, I would like to have developed the qualities of independence and self-motivation as much as possible. In my opinion, these are two of the most important building blocks for realizing my own potential to the best of my ability.Read More
After having finished my work experience and spanish program here in Spark, I will have learnt how to deal with new situations and new people, such as how to connect and integrate myself into those new things. I will have achieved this by working on my social skills. Being able to deal with new situation is really important in life and it will help me to learn to step out of my comfort zone.Read More

Mi experiencia en España
En las dos Semanas en El Puerto de Santa María he hecho muchas cosas en Spark y con mi familia anfitriona. En Spark tenía la posibilidad de trabajar independientemente. He pintado dos cuadros. Un toro y el Castillo de San Marcos. He hablado mucho Español con la familia y por eso yo aprendí el idioma.Read More
For the next 2 weeks, I will be doing a work experience at Sparks Spanish. I went to Spain to further work on my Spanish besides the 4 years of Spanish classes I got at home. To also improve on a personal level I set four goals to achieve.Read More
Just graduated and ready for a next adventure I started to look at jobs outside of the Netherlands. Soon enough I found Spark and as the name says the connection was there. Spark was not completely new to me since my sister also did an internship here about six years ago. It was nice to hear that besides some small changes Spark remained the nice and safe space for students to come and learn English.
I started this adventure with four goals I will achieve in the next six months working at Spark.
