About This Project

In July, a group of students from Bulgaria took part in the internship program. They are learners of various vocational classes at school, so each of them chose a suitable host company, according to the specialization. They worked in various places, mainly in the gastronomy and hospitality industry, such as typical Spanish tapas bars, traditional restaurants, nice cafeterias and charming hotels.

 

Students had various positions in their workplaces, for example as a cook, waiter, hotel employee… They have learned many new things in the areas of their future professions.

 

In addition, they had the opportunity to participate in a Spanish language course and many interesting activities, such as barbecue in the rhythm of flamenco, tapas night and more. Students could enjoy trips to famous and important places in Andalucía. It is worth mentioning that they visited Seville, Cordoba and Granada.
