On Location Spanish – 8 May 2013

Queridos lectores, it is with this ¡Hola! that I welcome you to what will be Grace’s final installment of On Location Spanish. With my days numbered here in sunny Valencia, time has certainly flown and it has been a lot of fun. The experience has afforded me the invaluable opportunity to develop my everyday jerga (“slang”) and what’s more is

On Location Spanish – 12 Mar 2013

¡Buenas a todo el mundo! and welcome to Grace’s On Location Spanish Update. So it appears we find ourselves in March and wondering where the time has gone, ¿verdad? (“am I right?”) As I embark on the homestretch of my busy year here in Valencia, me queda un montón por aprender (“I still have a lot to learn”) and with

On Location Spanish – 12 Feb 2013

Bienvenido a todo el mundo to Grace’s first On Location Spanish update of 2013! I hope the New Year has gotten off to a great start for you all, and without further ado I’d like to tell you about my first months back in Valencia. For the majority of the Brit Pack, we had returned to Valencia with only two

On Location Spanish – 18 Dec 2012

Hola a todos and welcome to another of Grace’s On Location Spanish updates. With November’s rain a thing of the past, as promised, my trusty umbrella has simply been gathering dust. Now, in the middle of December,  the sun still shines brightly through clear blue skies but I can confirm that, with low temperatures of 17°C, I have joined the

On Location Spanish – 4 Dec 2012

Bienvenido a todos to Grace’s On Location Spanish Update. Here in Valencia our beachwear is slowly giving way to wooly jumpers and sensible shoes as we find ourselves in the rainy season. Although I am assured by my friend John that as we move on through December we will see the return of the dry weather. Nevertheless, I’ve been to

On Location Spanish – 20 Nov 2012

Buenas a todos and welcome to Grace’s On Location Spanish update. Being that I am somewhat of a fair-skinned Scot, I am pleased to report that this week in Valencia we’ve had some wind and, would you believe it, some rain. Perhaps in an ideal world none of us would ever have to change out of our summer wardrobe, but

On Location Spanish – 30 Oct 2012

Hola a todo el mundo and welcome to this week’s On Location Spanish update from Grace. In addition to exploiting all of the beach time that I can during what has been an uncharacteristically long summer here in Valencia, I’m pleased to report that I have been studying hard and making some headway with my Spanish! Between learning whom I

On Location Spanish – 2nd Oct 2012

Buenas tardes a todos and welcome to this week’s On Location Spanish update. I’m Grace and I’ll be keeping you posted throughout my Erasmus year in the fast-paced city of Valencia, on Spain’s eastern coast. At the end of my first week here, I’m definitely still feeling like a bit of a novata (a “novice” or a “newbie”). But thankfully
