This week is my last week as an intern for my work & study program at Spark. In the six weeks I have been here, I wrote blogpost about the Spanish cultural events that my fellow Spark staff members and I organized for the students. This week we had our third Spanish cooking class since my arrival at Spark. It is a fantastic cultural activity dedicated to the delicious cuisine of Andalusia and Spain. So, in the meantime I can cook like a Spaniard! Moreover, these cooking activities are good to practice your Spanish vocabulary. The students will choose or write a Spanish recipy and secondly they need to buy the food in the Spanish supermarket. During the cooking and eating we try to speak as much Spanish as possible!
On Saturday we went with a group of Spark students on a daytrip to the wonderful city Cádiz. Spark organizes cultural events for students to experience the Spanish lifestyle here in the Cádiz region, which give Spark students a total package of learning Spanish. Since Cádiz is not only the capital of the province Cádiz but also the oldest city of Europe, it is a must-to-see during your stay in El Puerto de Santa Maria.
This week I organized two food related cultural activities in El Puerto de Santa Maria as an intern at Spark for my workexperience program. A pretty good job, right?
It is October but it still pretty hot in El Puerto de Santa Maria, so we started with an refreshing welcome drink on tuesday and ate some delicious tapas for lunch at tapasbar Molinete.
This afternoon I took my fellow students to Playa de las Redes, a beautiful beach in El Puerto de Santa Maria, which is a 10 minutes’ drive from the bus stop near Spark. Last week I went there by myself, to see if the place would be suitable for a first Spanish activity. The weather was perfect and as a result the beach was even more beautiful! We went to a typical Spanish beach bar (Chiringuito Salvador) for a drink, while enjoying the view and the refreshing southern Spanish sea breeze.
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; Spanish culture.
