PARTICIPANTS’ OPINIONS

Marcelina Flak

I appreciate the internship in Spain very well, I had the opportunity to work with very nice people. I learned a lot of interesting information about Malaga and curiosities related to the Spanish language. I also assess the accommodation positively, there was a variety of food and very nice people at the reception, who willingly gave a lot of useful information. Excursions organized by Euromind were very interesting. I will remember my stay in Spain very nice, I am glad that I decided to come here.

I really enjoyed the two-week internship in Malaga. People here are friendly and helpful. The work had a nice atmosphere and I could learn both office work and Spanish. Thanks to this trip I gained a lot of experience and would happily go back here again.

A stay in Malaga was a great experience for me. A trip to the centre and to Seville was a mega adventure, I met a lot of nice, friendly, helpful people. It is hard for me to part with this place, even though I was only two weeks, there were many nice moments that I will remember. The internship at the hotel was a lesson of life for me, despite the fact that I spent only 6 hours a day I became very familiar with the people who worked there. When I said goodbye, I was touched that it passed so quickly. I hope that I will have the opportunity to come again to Spain. Coordinator Kuba super, Ania an amazing person.
