My girlfriend and I we wanted to go on a trip to do something interesting and useful. As we love the Spanish language and adventure, we went to Mexico for six months. My girlfriend was almost a beginner and, as for me, I had good basis acquired at the university. We followed the first three months of classes together each in a different class. As I am interested in everything related to social and education matters, I followed the internship program for the following three months as a volunteer in a school for disadvantaged children. This experience gave me the opportunity to immerse myself in the life of the country with a level of professional and human implication that I could never have imagined. My girlfriend kept on studying Spanish and after six months she can now speak quite well… and cook too, thanks to the Mexican cooking option offered by the school. Six unforgettable months!
