Students get sufficient Spanish courses with our Spanish teacher, we emphasize practice, so during lessons students play a lot, because we think the game is the best teacher. Spanish classes can be described in two words: dynamic and practical. That is why, after intensive and hard learning, the students had written an exam. All the participants passed with very good results!
The internship was one of the most interesting trips I was on. During the internship, I had learned a lot of new things which can be useful in the future. Weekend trips were amazing because I had a chance to see beautiful cities and learn some of their histories. The residence was located near the city center so in our free time we could explore the city on our own.
I like the internships very much, I gain skills that will be useful to me at school and in my future work. The hotel is comfortable, the food is good and the plan is arranged so that there is time for everything. I like trips because I am curious about new cultures and tasting new food
Torremolinos is a really beautiful city with awesome buildings and a climate. People are kind here because they are always open to conversation, also most often can find time to help you. For sure, Spain is a very beautiful country, and it is hard to be bored here. The only disadvantage to this place is the high temperature and monotonous weather. In short, I am happy to have spent my time here.
