On Location Spanish – 14 May 2013

¡Hola y bienvenidos a mi blog! Once again, it’s Iain here in Salamanca with an update on my year abroad learning Spanish. Salamanca has gone fiesta crazy since my last update, with the celebrations of Semana Santa (“Holy Week”, culminating in Easter Sunday) followed closely by the local festival of Lunes de Aguas (literally “Waters Monday”, however I’ll explain more

On Location Spanish – 26 Mar 2013

¡Hola y bienvenidos! Welcome to another installment of On Location Spanish, once again coming to you from Iain in the University town of Salamanca. Salamanca has recently been doing its finest impression of the Scottish climate – over the past week, we have been experiencing all four seasons in one day, with a fair amount of rain and snow for

On Location Spanish – 26 Feb 2013

¡Bienvenidos a On Location Spanish! It’s Iain here with another update from my Erasmus at the Universidad de Salamanca. As February marches on, you’ll be glad to hear that: estamos en clase de nuevo (“we’re in class again”), grappling with that most unique of challenges of matching my expected credits required by my home University with the number of credits actually

On Location Spanish – 29 Jan 2013

¡Hola a todos! It’s Iain here from Salamanca, and it gives me great pleasure to welcome you back to On Location Spanish to follow my second term here on Erasmus exchange in Spain.

On Location Spanish – 27 Nov 2012

¡Hola a todos! It’s Iain here in Salamanca and I’m back with another On Location Spanish blog post. The Gran Vía is one of Salamanca’s main roads, and it is surrounded on all sides by bars, cafés and student flats, so it’s a common meeting point for the intercambios de lengua (“language exchanges”) that my flatmates and I do to improve

On Location Spanish – 6 Nov 2012

Buenos días and a very warm welcome to another On Location Spanish post from studious Salamanca. It’s Iain here, and much like Grace I’ve been slowly getting to grips with a brand new culture, a brand new University and, clearly, a brand new language. A few weeks have passed since my stumbling introduction to my life in Spain, and much

On Location Spanish – 16th Oct 2012

Upon my arrival in Salamanca, I decided to bite the bullet and get some last-minute Spanish tuition. My reasoning was two-fold: primarily, I’d be able to brush up on my Spanish before diving headlong into class; and secondly, I’d meet other Erasmus students grappling with this wonderful, popular language. Hola. Me gustaría matricularme en los cursos intensivos de español para los
