About This Project

For three weeks in May/June 2017, these 16 trainees from Kielce, Poland spent their time in Seville for their internships. Working as waiters, tour guides, housekeepers, touristic informants and business administrators at various local host companies, the trainees carried out tasks such as:

 

  • Assisting in welcoming the customers to the structure
  • Responding customer’s questions or curiosities
  • Cleaning bathrooms and supplying fresh towels and toiletries
  • Checking and restocking tea, coffee, sugar, milk and mini bar supplies
  • Updating payments, schedules, class shifts, recoveries of the classes
  • Balancing the cash register of the school

 

Next to that, the trainees had the opportunity to go on trips to Tavira and Cadiz, to learn Spanish during their language classes, to visit the city during their city tour and on their own and to enjoy plenty of free time! We wish the trainees all the best in their future endeavours and were very pleased with their stay.

Eliza Brzezińska:

‘The place I worked at, for me, was an opportunity to gain experience in my profession. The atmosphere at my workplace was friendly, everyone was nice. I also got to improve my English and Spanish. I am happy I worked with my friends. The mobility in Spain gave me the opportunity to get to know new cultures from other countries. This place is amazing and really inspiring. I am really happy because the weather is nice and because of the trips I have been on. The time I spent in Spain will always be on my mind.’

Oliwia Kuranda:

‘My work was an interesting experience. Despite the fact that most of the people working and visiting the club do not speak English, I learned to speak Spanish with them. I met many nice people there. I am very happy that I could be in Spain. Seville is a very charming and beautiful city with many beautiful historic monuments. All the people are very nice and friendly. I have gained the experience I will remember for a long time. I hope to come there again.’
