Spanish internship Madrid

My experience abroad in Madrid

My name is Judith, I am 22 years and I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I do the course of Executive Secretary / Management Assistant. For my last internship, I decided to take things bigger than I did before. I wanted to do an internship abroad. While I was searching the internet, I saw a Spanish company based in Liverpool. I have always wanted to go to the UK and this company got me from the first moment. I applied for an internship position as a secretary and I got an answer within two days. During the mailing, I was even more enthusiastic than I was before. Because it is not that busy during Christmas, they gave me the opportunity to join the headquarters office in Madrid for nine weeks. They offered me free English classes and a lot of experience. I decided to take this internship.

Home is where your heart is

How to deal with homesickness?

Feeling lonely in a big world

Let me tell you something about homesickness. I think that almost everyone knows what I am talking about. Homesickness is something that follows you everywhere. But is it true that it is the same with everyone? No, every single person has to deal with homesickness in his or her own way. You don’t have to do what everyone says, but you can listen to their advice. It is up to you to do something about it. Is quitting an option? Sure, but you will probably regret that for the rest of your life.

Dijkpoorter in Hattem, Netherlands

Hattem, Hanseatic city in The Netherlands

I would like to tell you more about Hattem, my hometown in The Netherlands. But first of all, I would like to introduce myself again. My name is Judith, I am 22 years old and I live with my parents, one older brother, and two younger sisters. I do the course of Executive Secretary / Management Assistant at Deltion College in Zwolle. I work as an intern by the company Hola People, which is based in Liverpool.

History

I live in Hattem. A gorgeous Hanseatic city in the eastern Netherlands located on river The IJssel. This 800-year-old city has a rich history. I would definitely recommend you to visit Hattem. It is very touristic and everything is in walking distance. The history is not there without town-gate the Dijkpoorter, the windmill, the church, the city wall, the history from the very first beginning and of course the story and monuments behind World War 2.

Let your life dance

Everybody loves to dance, yet we feel that not everyone is  good in performing. Our body automatically responses to rhythm as well to music. All our senses are being tuned in the minute we listen to music, we can feel the way emotions are being expressed. The way the tones are uplifting or down to earth. Bringing in the connection with our emotional body and memories. I know as a kid I was always being struck deep in my heart when the marching bands passed down our streets. At a concert by a band with only a rhythm section, the first song they played opened my heart so wide open, tears started to flow.

Social Language Learning improves confidence

Fear of socialising?

Can you talk with a person you just met? Are there awkward silences? Do you not know what to say? We are people and we all have fears and many times the fears can be present when we are in front of people that we have just met. There are people who open up less and some who open up more, but why does this happen?
