Ice Skating in Majadahonda.

20121115-150240.jpg

I went on a field trip with my 1st and 2nd ESO students to the ice rink in Majadahonda. The kids were awesome at helping me skate around the rink and were constantly arguing over whose turn it was to hold my hand 🙂
See if you’re able to spot me among my kiddies in the picture! Hint: I’m wearing a green jacket.

The BEDA Application Period Has Begun!

Hello lovely readers!!

I just wanted to make a quick post to inform you that BEDA opened their application process at the beginning of November. The link where you can read more about the program and get the application/instructions is HERE.

So if you would like to be a language assistant here in Spain like me, get your application in! The closing date for applying is January 31, 2013.

The ministry program won’t be opening their application process until December, so now is the perfect time to apply to BEDA if you’re thinking of applying to both programs so that you aren’t filling out the applications for the two programs at the same time.

As always, if you have any questions please ask me 🙂 I know how daunting the application process can be.

Paris! Sorry That This Post is So Long (I Think It’s the First Time I’ve Used the “Read More” Option).

People who know me well are aware that I am obsessed with 3 cities: Madrid, London, and Paris. I am currently living in one of my dream cities and I was lucky enough to visit another last week during the long weekend. Paris was everything I dreamed it would be and then some.

I’d heard from so many people that have been to Paris that I would be disappointed when I saw the Eiffel Tower in person. Well, they were wrong. I was a like a giddy school girl the entire time I was at the Eiffel Tower. I could not stop smiling. People probably thought I was a little crazy. I can’t even fathom someone being unimpressed by the tower. The Iron Lady is beautiful and awe-inspiring! I managed to ask an Italian girl that was sight-seeing with her mother to take a picture of me:

After my stop at the Eiffel Tower, I meandered over to the MusĂ©e d’Orsay. I can definitely say that the MusĂ©e d’Orsay is my favorite museum. I LOVED it. I know so many people love the Louvre, but the MusĂ©e d’Orsay has such charm! Plus the exhibition they had while I was there was impressionist paintings, which I love!!  More

Sorry for the lack of blogging lately!!
