Hello, my name is Maja and I really enjoyed my trip to Spain. I learned many new things here such as culture, food, and a different lifestyle. I went here for practice to make photo albums. The people I worked with were very nice and helped me. There were other things to do besides work. I liked the trip to the ocean the most. It was the first time I had been there and it was really beautiful. I also had Spanish lessons This trip made me more confident and I had a great time with my friends.
Hi, my name is Jakub and in this short article I would like to decribe my trip to Spain. When we got to the place to stay, we were all suprised, he feel at home here. In the first week of our stay we visited a lot and I really like these tours. On August 17th I went to work for the first time for presentacions. When everything was signed, I was glad that I had the opportunity to do an internship in Spain. In the second week of our stay we started a Spanish lanhuage course, we have taught by a nice lady who even spoke Polish well. We took en exam en August 30. August 26 we went to the cathedral it was a beautiful sight, in my opinion the best trip ever. The third week we are practicing with employers, unfortunetly but this is the last week in Spain. I do not want to go back Poland, it is terribly cold there. Best regards
I find the trip organized by Erasmus+ very intersting becouse of the posibility to getting to know other lanhuages, culture and getting to know what working abroad looks like. As for the trips, they were intresting and the number of their organizations was quite large. I consider my intership in Seville to be very good becouse I had the opportunity to work in an autorized service center and alongside very lively and witty people who made my work better. The hotel in which I started was a bit different from the information card, but I did not mind, the meals were very good and tasty, the hotel staff was always smiling and kind. Personaly, I recomend such a trip abroad becouse you can get to know a different way of life, work and more, If there was such an oportunity, I would repeat such a trip abroad.
