After 5 months it is time for me to say goodbye to AMAUTA-Elebaires. I came to Buenos Aires in February and I have worked here at the Spanish School until July. During my internship, I have done many communication and marketing tasks and in case you are wondering what my week looked like, then keep reading.
Every week I wrote one blog about a personal experience I had in Buenos Aires. For example about the 3 best lunch places close to the school or the top 10 best bars in Buenos Aires. Furthermore, each week I wrote a news item about recent news and happenings in the city. Every day I updated the social media; I posted tweets on Twitter and photos on Instagram. Moreover, every Monday and Wednesday, I organized activities for the Spanish students here. We have organized many different activities; from visiting the football stadium in La Boca to riding bikes in the city. It was fun to organize and while participating in the activity we took photos of the students.
I was the coordinator of the internships in Buenos Aires and I made sure that the students that came to the school to learn Spanish and to do an internship were satisfied. I accompanied them on their first working day, for example, to the hospital. Furthermore, I visited home stays to see if they could be added to our portfolio. I would meet with the host parents, talk to them to get to know them and they would show me the house and the room which was available for the student. After that, we would decide if the host family was suitable and if they could be added to the school´s portfolio.
My internship has been a good experience, not only have I learned a lot during working hours, also outside of the office I have learned a lot about the Argentinean culture, the country while traveling and about the Spanish language.
Thanks AMAUTA-Elebaires for this opportunity!
