Why did you choose to do an EVS?/ ¿Por qué decidiste hacer un SVE?The idea of doing an EVS came during my last year of Master. I was not totally ready to get into the active life and, being fond of cultural adventures, being a volunteer in another country for ten months seemed to be the perfect choice.
Why did you choose Spain/ ¿Por qué elegiste España?
Spain was chosen in order to improve my Spanish and be able to speak fluently.
You are a volunteer in…/ Tú eres voluntari@ en…:
About my association, called Asociacion Cultural of San Pablo, they participate to the well-being of the children and families of the neighborhood. As a volunteer, I support the educators during the academic support and the free time but also during the different trips organized by the association.
… and you choose this association/… y por qué elegiste esta asociación?
It was the association that corresponded the best to what I was expecting to do and learn during my EVS.
Your first impression of Madrid/ Tu primera impresión de Madrid:
“Que calor!” “Que barato es!” That sums up my first impression of Madrid as someone coming from Paris. I really had a good impression of Madrid, the transports, the locals, the typical Spanish food…. I was not disappointed.
Tell me something about your country I may not know/ Dime algo sobre tu país que puedo no saber:
In France, when you greet a friend, you can give him from 1 to 5 kisses on the cheek depending in which region you are.
Your plans and goals after the project/ Tus planes y objetivos después del proyecto…
If I have the opportunity to find a job in Madrid, I will probably stay and if not, I will comeback to France and to my fabulous cheeses! 😊
