A group of 15 students from the Czech Republic came to Málaga in October for a two-week internship in the architecture sector; more specifically, they were involved in designing bioclimatic houses.
They spent their time improving their skills doing many tasks such as measuring and customising coordinates, calculating room surfaces and creating libraries of blocks for installations. It certainly gave them a better perspective on how many factors contribute to the end result of such an engaging project. And, more importantly, it enabled them to learn the importance of teamwork and communication between team members.
The students gained the chance not only to acquire new knowledge of their profession, but also gained new linguistic skills by diligently attending a Spanish language course. This made it easier for them to communicate during the project, in some students instilling a desire to continue learning the language of Cervantes….
In their free time, the group went on an excursion to Marbella, and the beautiful Puerto Banus. What’s more, they also went to Granada where, in addition to exploring the city, they also visited the Alhambra, the last bastion of Moorish power in Andalusia.
We are sure that the students spent a wonderful two weeks in Spain, learning, discovering and enjoying the whole experience!
I wanted to go to Spain for a long time. I’ve already been there but it was a long time ago and it was only a vacation. This internship showed me a different side of this country. I got to see the city life and different architecture. I really like the weather and the beach. We went on many tours and trips and we went to many museums. It was really exciting. We’ve even had a Spanish course! I really liked my internship, I learned a lot. I’m really grateful for this opportunity.
I wanted to visit Spain because I like Spanish culture and language. This trip was a great experience. Practices were sometimes a little challenging, but I learned to work in Autocad and learned more about bioclimatic houses. The Spanish classes we’ve had were really interesting. I want to continue learning Spanish and visit Málaga again in the future because it’s a beautiful city. I loved the time I spent in there!
