Col·legi Dr. Masmitjà, an Infant and Primary school located in Girona, has been in the Programa Auxiliars de Conversa for five years. This year they are hosting Rebecca, a Conversation Assitant from California.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Rebecca!



  IMG_4150 (Small)IMG_0965 (Small)From the first day when I met my host family and tutor I knew I was going to have an amazing experience.  I felt very at home from the beginning with my host family and have really enjoyed spending time with them experiencing what their life in Girona is like.  I have spent some time at soccer and basketball games and at extended family’s homes for delicious meals as well. Whether I am teaching the children English, playing games with them, or talking with my host parents everything is funny and enjoyable.  My positive feelings about living in Spain extend to my teaching experience as well.  Everyone at the school has been very welcoming.  All of the teachers have made an effort to make me feel very comfortable and supported and they were successful from day one. I love that I am able to work with everyone at the school, ranging from ages 3 to 11.  All of my classes from P3 to 6th are delightful.  I spend the most time with the students in 6th.  IMG_4161 (Small)I have also been lucky enough to be able to participate in activities outside of teaching English in the classroom. These include field trips and working on extra English projects, such as a song competition.  I also teach English outside of the school, hang out with friends whenever possible, and am trying not to miss an opportunity to travel while here in Europe.  I am busy as can be and am enjoying every minute of it.  Experiencing the culture and getting to know people I have met while here has been a wonderful experience so far and I know it is only going to get better.
