After 5 weeks doing a Spanish course and an intership in TLCdénia, Moritz shares his testimonial:

The Erasmus Internship programme
In August 2015 I learned about the possibility to get a sponsorship on behalf of the ERASMUS Program of the European Union. The sponsorship supports an internship in a foreign country, which I decided to do in Spain.
How I got the internship
First I needed to find a company to take me for an – at least 4-weeks – internship. I found TLCdénia and applied. Mari Carmen, the director of the language school answered my application mail instantly and invited me for a Skype-interview in order to get to know each other and to sort out how an internship could be realized.
The interview went great but in order to take full advantage of the time, Mari Carmen recommended that I stay at least 8 weeks. Although I would have loved to, I could only negotiate 6 weeks with my company in Germany.
The internship was fixed to begin at 21st of March and so I waited for the time to come. In this period I studied a little bit of Spanish, so I wouldn’t arrive completely unprepared. I also had time to prepare all the documents for the sponsorship of the Erasmus Program and the necessary insurances.
My first day
The first day of the internship was at hand. I grabbed my uncles bike and arrived at the school at 9:30am as agreed. As soon as I arrived I came to know that I was able to join the morning course Spanish A2. Of course I accepted this offer and got to know the first teacher – and colleague of mine – Antonia. She was able to break down any barrier a student might have and taught the language in a very humorous way which helped to create a relaxed but focused atmosphere.
