This year we have two new Language Assistants, Victor and Silvia. They are both attending Primary and Batxillerat classes, helping our students to improve their comprehension abilities, so that they can practise speaking and listening with them. Here is Victor's presentation.
"My full name is Victor Hugo Solano Ortega, I am 22 years old, I was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico but I was raised in Los Angeles, California.My hobbies include reading, attending concerts or music festivals, sight seeing, and going to new and exotic restaurants around town.
I am currently finishing off my undergraduate education at the University of California, Santa Cruz where I study linguistics with an emphasis in Spanish. I am also enrolled at the Autonomous University of Barcelona for one semester where I am currently taking a class in Catalan with the hope to learn a third language and also taking two other classes that focus on interpretation, translation, and intercultural communication that I know can enrich my study abroad experience here in Barcelona.
The reason why I decided to do an internship here at Colegio San Josep Teresianas in Gràcia, was to gain some experience working at a school by teaching, being an English tutor, and to be able to learn more about the education system in Catalunya in comparison to the education system in the United States; as I hope to become a teacher myself someday."
