A Week in My Spanish Life

Well I’m nearing the end of my second month in the program and BOY how fast time flies. It feels like just yesterday that I was spending hours on google maps trying to understand where I would be moving to in a few months. Still can’t believe it sometimes that I’m actually living in a Spanish paradise.

Now let’s take a look at a week in my life, shall we? 

Monday: While working in hospitality and retail before Monday’s really didn’t give me the blues because many times, they were my Friday! Well here in Spain, my Monday’s are the LONGEST day of the week…

9:50 am- First class of the day, with primary kids in the 6th grade

BREAK- 10:45-12:15

12:15 pm- Second class of the day, with primary kids in the 1st grade

1-3 pm- LUNCHTIME: This school is a little different than some others in Palma, since it is a private school the day finishes at 5 but kids get a 2 hour lunch break giving them time to go home and eat or eat at the school and play.

3 pm- Third class of the day, with primary kids in the 3rd grade

4 pm- Last class of today, with primary kids in the 5th grade

5- 6:30 pm- Private Lesson with a girl and her brother

8 pm- Spanish class (which I have yet to attend but I will be this week)

Monday is my absolute least favorite day because I spend 7 hours at the school while only working 4, the classes itself though are pretty fun.

Tuesday: On Tuesday and Wednesday I spend my time in the beautiful town of Pollenca, it is about an hour bus ride from Palma which isn’t so bad considering all the wonderful views!

7:30 am- Bus departs for Pollenca

8:30 am– First class, with primary kids in the 1st grade

9:30 am- Second class, with primary kids in the 2nd grade

10:45 am- Third class, with primary kids in the 3rd grade

1:10 pm- Bus departs back towards Palma

Friday, Saturday and Sunday are my days off every week which is pretty weird to have weekends off! The weather has been extremely nice for November so far with most days getting a bit about 65 which allows for outdoor activities! The nights can still get cold though, especially with the humidity!
