Jenny, I love Zaragoza

Hello!

My name is Jenny, and I am from Liverpool. I left the UK on January 1st, after graduating from Lancaster University in the summer, in search of a change in lifestyle, and definitely a change in climate. When I arrived in Zaragoza I was greeted by the most vicious wind that I have ever experienced, but persevered, and began working at Number 16 School with three other new teachers, including my best friend Zaffi.

Working at the school has allowed me to meet so many new people every single day. The classes are great fun and allow students to improve quickly. I have found that I have learnt so much from the students themselves, facts about Spain and the culture (usually food related) mean that I am able to teach yet am also learning new things every day.

I am trying (desperately) to improve my Spanish from its extremely basic level, and enjoy studying the difficult and sometimes impossible language in my spare time. I am hoping that by the end of my time here in Zaragoza, I will be greeted by Spanish bar staff with a look of comprehension and understanding, instead of the current look of confusion and at times, bewilderment.

I have grown to love Zaragoza, and now that the weather is improving, I am looking forward to taking many a siesta in the midday heat, and improving my very English tan. When I have the opportunity, I enjoy visiting other cities, and am a big fan of Madrid. This summer I am hoping to go further  South of the country, and am excited to see what else Spain has to offer.
