Hi I'm Aine! I am a 19 year old student at the University of Limerick and I am currently on work placement in Barcelona in a school called Escola Túrbula as an English Language Assistant. I will be working here for six months and so far I am really enjoying it!
Before I began my placement, I was really looking forward to teaching children and my overall stay here in Barcelona. Of course I was unsure of what to expect and quite nervous as I have never lived so far away from home before for this long. However, I was very excited at the same time as this would be a new experience for me. Three girls from my college are also working here so its very fun exploring Barcelona together. I have a big interest in learning new languages and cultures and staying here has definitely developed my understanding of the Catalonian culture. I have settled in now and everything is going well so far.
