I have been at Spark for six weeks and I am now at the end of my work & study program. In these weeks I have organized cultural events at Spark and wrote blogposts about these cultural activities and Spanish culture and lifestyle here in El Puerto and the Cádiz region. This fantastic progam at Spark provided me with valuable work experience abroad, while learning Spanish and experiencing the Spanish/Andalusian culture and history.
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!
Why study Spanish in El Puerto de Santa Maria? El Puerto is ideally located in the Cádiz province and you can visit beautiful cities in its surroundings, such as Cádiz, Sevilla, Jerez, Granada, Ronda, Córdoba, Málaga, Gibraltar or smaller cities such as the famous Pueblos Blancos or beautiful towns at the coastline. But El Puerto itself has a lot to offer too! So, this week we focus on our beloved and beautiful El Puerto de Santa Maria in our cultural events programme! The cultural events enable our students to discover the best of Spain: ‘Descubre España’!
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.
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.
