My Fall Semester in Spain

Madi When my plane landed in Madrid on September 4th, I knew one other person in the program, was obsessed with speaking perfect Spanish, and wanted to travel to as many countries as possible. At the end of my time here, I can say that I made a lot of lovely friends from Tufts, Skidmore, […]

My daily 2 pieces of toast with blackberry jam and cup of coffee 3. My host brothers playing fortnight truly todo el rato 4. Making […]

My Last Post is About Program Classes

500 words. 500 words are all that separate me from the end of my tenure as a student blogger. 500 words, as it so happens, is 150 words longer than the longest paper that any student on the Tufts-Skidmore Spain program ever needs to write in the mandatory grammar class.

Esto significa […]

Madrid Gets Ready for the Holiday Season

As the semester is ending and finals season is (very much) upon us, I have really enjoyed seeing Madrid and my homestay get all dressed up for Christmas. Walking on the Gran Vía or through Plaza Mayor or Sol was beautiful before, but now it’s even more festive. There are also Christmas and artisanal markets […]

Mis clases del programa

Wonderful stuff happens within the walls of the program’s classrooms With finals season in full swing, the plague has hit me like clockwork. Lack of sleep and lots of work are always a deadly combo, but add living in a city as exciting as Madrid, and a whole new level appears. I can honestly say […]

IFG leaders Lucy, Eli and Génesis

IFG!

IFG leaders Lucy, Eli and Génesis They say the best things in life are free, and I think they’re referring to things like love, sunshine, and Fridays. Generally, I agree with “them,” whoever they are with the power to write timeless maxims, but I would propose that they add one more item to the list: […]
