Language Learning, Uncategorized
All my life I have always liked discovering new cultures and learning new languages, but I had never studied Spanish.
When I arrived in Barcelona, I had the habit of joining Italian and foreigners groups, as to live again my Erasmus time, which I clearly remember as one of the best periods of my life.
About my Spanish, I was aware I had to learn to speak it and write it properly if I wanted to stay and live in Barcelona. But, at that moment, fear and shame led me to hide behind other languages ​​I was fluent in.
Some months later, once I left the magic bubble of the University, I faced the world of work and I realized that my level of Spanish was bad, because I could understand well, but I did not have the right vocabulary to successfully pass an interview.
That’s how my adventure started at The Friday Language Exchange, where I had the chance to practice my Spanish ​​in a fun way and while making new friends, in a big city like Barcelona, ​​where that’s not so easy.
I saw my Spanish was evolving and I felt more confident talking with more ease and learning a lot through the new people I had met at the language exchange, thanks to its friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
As time goes by, I have tried to integrate more and, learning Spanish and Catalan, has opened the doors to a new and more successful life at a professional and personal level.

Barcelona tips
Off the metro line 4 and up the hill are the historic Bunkers del Carmel, a great place to check out a full view of Barcelona-without the tourist crowds. On the weekends there are still quite a lot of people but it is definitely off the beaten path!
Go there during the day for a picnic, during the evening to watch the sunset or at night for the views (with a few drinks in tow!)
How to get there: There are a couple of ways to get to the bunkers.
If you take the bus, take the N17 from the Jaume 1 metro station. It takes longer to get there, but the walk is shorter (total time is about 50 minutes from Jaume 1 metro station).
The other option is the metro (and the only option if you stay later than the buses run). Take the Line 4 metro (yellow line) to the stop Alfons X. From there, it is a bit of a walk up the hill (about 1.6 km!), so be prepared (total time about 45 minutes from Jaume 1 metro station).
Of course, you can drive there if you have a car!
Bring your camera/phone and your friends and enjoy the view!
