Students also were lucky to get a chance to go to Cordoba – the city in Andalucía, southern Spain. The city was conquered by Muslim armies in the eighth century and became the capital of the Islamic Emirate and then Caliphate of Córdoba, including most of the Iberian Peninsula. In the 10th century, Córdobawas considered the most populous city in the world and also the center of education as it had many libraries, medical schools, and universities.
Also, students visited Nerja, located on the eastern end of the Costa del Sol, which has all of the elements needed to charm any visitor. Its annual average temperature of around twenty degrees Celsius, its beautiful mountain landscape of La Axarquía region, as well as its rugged coastline of beaches and cliffs, are just some of its attractions. Nerja has more than its fair share of fabulous beaches, Burriana and Torrecilla being the main ones, which boast 16 kilometers of powdery sand and sparkling clear water, and a splattering of small coves to explore.
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 boss and the staff are very positive, they treat me like family. The atmosphere is very pleasant when I am with them. We communicate through a translator and I learn a lot of new things that I didn’t see in Poland.
The internship here showed me that the work does not have to be exhausting, it can be both teaching and fun. The people here are very positive and welcome you very warmly. I am very satisfied with this internship.
The practice is conducted in a nice atmosphere. The employers are very friendly, I have no trouble communicating. I like the office and I am satisfied.
