Katie Wright case study

My work experience week lasted from 16th - 23rd February and the destination was Santander. Having completed A2 Spanish a year earlier in Year 12, I decided to undertake work experience in Spain in order to keep up my level of Spanish, and I'm so glad I did!

I worked in a nursery from 9:30 - 1:30 in the week, and an added bonus was that I got meals there as well, and the staff were brilliant and helpful! I didn't even feel the need to speak in English as although they spoke relatively quickly, the natives were still easy to understand.

In addition, I made a great group of new friends from the week abroad who I'm sure I will keep in touch with in years to come. Seriously, I'd recommend work experience abroad to anyone; it's an invaluable experience and looks great on your CV and personal statement.
