I have lived one of the best years of my life
“I have lived one of the best years of my life“
Isabel Serrano, 4º ESO
Colegio Liceo Sorolla
I have been one year living in Ireland. It wasn’t any easy.
At the beginning, I had to make new friends and I tried to
change my habits to the ones my family had, but it was
difficult. I used to think that I wasn´t going to make any friend
or even understand what the teachers were going to tell
me. But little by little, I started to get the pronuntiation and
also I started to talk to people and to my family.
Now, that I think about those hard first days, I just say thank you
for this great opportunity. Because even those bad moments in
which you think about your friends or about Spain aren´t as bad
now, and I can tell this because I have been living one of the
best years of my life and I will never forget about
everyone that helped me there.
What did I learn
studying in
Ireland?
Most people think that
when you go to another
country you just improve
the foreign lenguage.
Well, is not only that. I
learnt…
•
How to live with complete strangers, how to study in English and
how to make new friends. Because I didn´t only learn things in class
about history or maths, I also learnt how to work or even how to
react to some problems about live.
•
How to try new experiences
How is the education in Ireland?
We used to get more homework, but the exams
weren´t as hard and long as in Spain and I feel I
learnt more.
In Ireland there are two levels for every subject: Higher and
Ordinary. I think this is very helpfull because some people are
better in subjects that others aren´t, so this clasification can
help them to pass.
We had to move to different rooms to go to
class, so we weren´t all day sitting in the same
chair with the same people. Because of
changing classes, I made more friends.
We had options, that are three classes that you can choose.
Some are Home Economics, French, German, Bussines,
Metal Work, Wood Work, Music or Art. I loved the ones I
chose because I met people with common interests as
mines.
We had one class a week of meditation. I really
loved it. We just lyed down and relax, we had to
think about some poems the teacher used to
read.
