Conversation Assistants 2016-17
We would like to introduce Aiden Myer and Erika Wilson, the Conversation Assistants for this school year. Their task is a very important one, and a great experience for themselves as well as for students and host families. They can explain it really well:
“My experience as a conversation assistant has been truly amazing so far. This is my third week in Barcelona and I am enjoying every moment. My host family is lovely and kind. They have made me feel at home. It is such an authentic experience living within a Spanish family.
The school is amazing and filled with colours. The teachers are welcoming and always there if I need any help.
Working with children is the highlight of my week. They are always so excited to learn English and it is making this experience incredible. “
“My name is Aidan Myer and I am a 22 year-old American from Columbia, South Carolina. I arrived in Barcelona almost 2 months ago and from the moment I landed down in El Prat practically everything has gone perfectly. The teachers and staff at SIL have been extremely kind and friendly, the students have been remarkably polite and engaging, my host parents and brother have made me feel like a part of their family and CAPS as an organization has been helpful with any question I have had without being overbearing. As an added bonus, Barcelona is an incredible city with beautiful architecture, impressive nightlife, delicious food and an eclectic culture that is accommodating to all. “
