  • 5. Jeanette from Germany <ul><li>!Buenas! </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>My name is Jeanette and I am from Germany. For a duration of 5 months I studied at the University of </li></ul><ul><li>Cantabria as an Erasmus-student wanting to get to know Spain and its people. And of course I aimed to improve </li></ul><ul><li>my language skills. </li></ul><ul><li>My circle of friends consisted of people from all over the world but not many Spaniards, which is why the </li></ul><ul><li>opportunity to work as an auxiliary partner at the UIMP, getting to know the youth of the country, was a great </li></ul><ul><li>addition to my stay in Santander. Over lunch, dinner or just a coffee I enjoyed many chats about tradition, </li></ul><ul><li>culture, history, the education system, globalisation and the things that the youth of the world have in common. </li></ul><ul><li>This way I gathered inside knowledge from the perspective of people from my guest-country, especially about </li></ul><ul><li>linguistic differences which would have been kept from me if I didn´t work for the UIMP. </li></ul><ul><li>The food was very tasty, I got to see the inside of the Magdalena Palace and in general I had good fun; thanks </li></ul><ul><li>to Ana and thanks to the UIMP. </li></ul><ul><li>! Hasta pronto! </li></ul><ul><li>Jeanette </li></ul>

  • 9. <ul><li>My name is Bobby, and I live near Washington, D.C. in the United </li></ul><ul><li>States. </li></ul><ul><li>From January to March 2009 I participated in the English Language </li></ul><ul><li>Immersion program as a conversation assistant during lunch, dinner </li></ul><ul><li>and student activities. </li></ul><ul><li>Being a conversation assistant was a great opportunity for me because </li></ul><ul><li>I was in Santander to study Spanish and Spanish culture, and over the </li></ul><ul><li>course of three months, I met people from every region of the country. </li></ul><ul><li>Although we spoke English during the meals, I definitely learned a lot about Spain from all the friends I made. </li></ul><ul><li>Not only did the students tell me about where they’re from and what their hometowns are like, but I also learned </li></ul><ul><li>about Spanish life directly when we would go out together at night. I would show them the fun places to go in </li></ul><ul><li>Santander at night, and they would show me what Spanish people do when they go out. They taught me about Spain, </li></ul><ul><li>but I also taught them about the United States and the English language. Teaching them words and phrases in </li></ul><ul><li>English that they wanted to know and helping them improve their English in general was probably my favorite part </li></ul><ul><li>about being a conversation assistant. </li></ul><ul><li>I highly recommend coming to Santander to do an intensive week of immersion in the English language. The </li></ul><ul><li>conversation assistants and the program directors are fantastic, the city is beautiful, the residences are great, </li></ul><ul><li>and most importantly, it’s a lot of fun. I have participated for nine or ten weeks, and I think it has made my </li></ul><ul><li>time in Spain all the better. </li></ul>Bobby from USA
