Oh, the things we do for love!
Once Cupid’s arrow hits there is no telling what can happen. Thankfully, in my case, what happened was a swift move to Spain! I met my love, a Spaniard of course, 9 months ago in my home country Canada. Our meeting was reminiscent of a fairy tale and like all tales of love there was a serious glitch. He was moving back to Spain in 3 months. It was apparent we were destined for one another and that soon led to me being destined for Spain! Not wanting to be apart for long, I wrapped up my life in Canada quickly and arrived in Spain with 2 suitcases, my cat and not a word of Spanish under my belt. Needless to say, one of my first priorities was to enrol in school and start learning Spanish!
From the moment I walked through the door of IH Valladolid I knew this was the place for me. The wonderful woman at reception was warm and welcoming, answering all my questions and quelling my concerns. This comfort extended to my first day (I literally had to start with the alphabet) as my teacher was/is amazing. Educated and patient with a great sense of humor, Raquel helped me from the basics to the every day conversation ‘know how’ that has been invaluable in my relationship with my wonderful Spanish man, and in my new life here in Spain.
It’s been 3 months and I’m still going strong! The courses are intensive and I work hard, but given my improvement in Spanish, the friends I have made and the love of the new country I call home, this is and has been, an amazing experience. A lot of which was possible through IH Valladolid. It is more than just a school for me; it has been a guide and a helping hand to me during my transition to Spain and starting my new life with my True Love.
