Cliché as it sounds, there is only one word to sum up my experience in Spain and it’s a strong and proud Andalusian “oooooooooooooleeeee”.

Even the school I was teaching English at was different than anything I had experienced before. The students in primary hugged me in the hallways and shouted, “Miss Amanda, Miss Amanda!”. The bell schedule confused me (and honestly still does a little). At lunch I looked like a bobble head....

My new status as a tabula rasa in Spain has given me the chance to experience new things as if I were a Spanish new-born. So without further ado, until living in Spain, I had never: been a teacher, worn slippers, had a brother, ridden a horse, or eaten so much food in my entire life.

Aside from the tune Old McDonald being stuck in my head when I get home, there are many pros to this program: I live a few blocks from the beach where it doesn’t go below 50F all year; everything is very, very cheap. There are many Spanish holidays. After being here for less than two months I have already visited Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, and Granada along with attractions where I live in Málaga. I feel grateful that I have the opportunity to live in this laid back, paradise of a beach town I now call home… So I’ll clap my hands!

The first weeks teaching abroad and the unexpected effects: the language barrier, the celebrity status, the patriotism, the tiredness, and the pressure. What would you add?
