School’s Out

Last Friday marked the end of our training course! My teacher brought in tapas and cava to celebrate:) In summary, the course was informational, challenging, practical, and equipping. One of my favorite parts about it was that it required a lot of actual teaching practice. For the first two lessons that we taught, we were given the lesson plan. But after that, we were required to create our own lesson plans and then were observed while we taught groups of adult students, varying in level from beginner to intermediate. Our teachers would give us feedback after the class on things we did well and things we could’ve done differently. I don’t have my final grade yet, but I did well. We also won’t receive our certificates for a couple of weeks yet, but we can start looking/applying for jobs right away.

This past weekend, I went to Andorra with Noelia to go skiing. She had never gone before and was really excited to try it. We had so much fun, and it was sooo beautiful! They had been getting a lot of snow, so the conditions were really good. They had a cable car that ran between the different ski lodges in the mountains. The view was amazing and the weather was perfect!


In other news, I will be moving to a new apartment soon! The place I’m moving into is a studio apartment for €250 per month, which is much cheaper than where I am at now. It also works out perfectly because Shelly will be able to stay there with me when she comes to visit at the end of February. I’m excited to move in over the weekend!
