Do I speak Spanish? No unfortunately not yet.
But I am totally excited since today I have booked my flight to Santiago de Chile. I am leaving the UK in one of the most horrible months. My flight is leaving on Saturday the 3rd of November. I will come back on Sunday December 2nd 🙂
5 years ago my friends Heiko and Juliane told me all about their experience of blearing Spanish in Valencia it was my dream to do something similar. I never did. Everytime I changed jobs I committed to start right away and usually it is hard to get 4 weeks in a row…..
Two years ago I met a beautiful young lady who told me about her experience in Chile… I did not think I would ever do it and was actually planning to go to Barcelona this August to do the course… But it happened Accommodation was too expensive in Barcelona and so I was searching the web and finally I booked the Chile experience yeah :):):):):):):)
Details? The flight is with Iberia – there are no direct flights to Chile and I went for price. Business class? No no – I fly “cow class” as my friend calls it 😉 20 hours per direction with a stop in Madrid.
The language course is offered by Latin Immersion so far they have been very nice and helpful. They will provide the accommodation (shared housing) and will provide the language training (20 hours per week). I will be reporting about the course and about the country once I am there.
The following information is for the UK tax people: “The company I work for wants me to learn Spanish so there is someone who can look after the Spanish speaking markets… I will of course try to get a tax credit for this. Anyone living in the UK who has experience with tax credits for something similar ?
