The days goes really fast in Tenerife but at the same time I feel like I have been here a really long time. The week was a bit intense with the Spanish course (which I passed and got my diploma yesterday) 🙂 It was a good experience and I think I actually have learned a lot more then expected in only one week considering that I had class from 09.00 – 11.15 only. It was kind of nice going there everyday and talking Spanish only and talking to new people, having coffee in the cafeteria and then having the afternoon free so I would definitely recommend it. I think I just needed this course to “get back” to my Spanish and I really feel like I did 🙂
So this morning I had my first Spanish class and I woke up really early getting ready for “school” starting with a cappuccino 🙂 First we had an introduction, then a welcome breakfast for all new students, and the class was pretty intense since we are only two people in my class, so I had to talk a lot all the time which is exactly what I need to improve. My level was C advanced and I really felt that I will learn a lot even though it’s only 5 days. After the class I went to visit the botanic garden since I had an hour to spend before his mum picked me up for lunch and it was really relaxing and beautiful full of sounds and exotic plants.

So I am back again in Tenerife for a little holiday (or maybe not so little with 10 days) to enjoy the summer again a bit and also to do a Spanish intensive course which I am really excited about that starts on Monday. As I have been living in Barcelona a while now, I do understand everything and I do speak Spanish when I want or need to, but, my issue is since I’ve never learned Spanish in a school I have doubts when I speak it if it’s good/bad or if I say the grammatic correct, so I really need to improve it to be able to speak it with confidence therefore a intensive course will probably help me a lot.
I arrived yesterday morning and it was so so windy when we were landing so the plane went from one side to the other (never experienced a more horrific landing) and the plane went down so fast so when we finally landed everyone was like so happy and started clapping a lot😅. It was 33 degrees when his mum picked me up and it really felt like being back in the summer again 🙂 We had some nice seafood paella for lunch and then we drowe to the south of Tenerife to spend the weekend at the beach. So yesterday I spent the afternoon at the beach and it was full of people and the sea was really calm and the weather was almost too hot 🙂
