      Ben at Apunto 
As a helper for A Punto culinary school you will be present at 1-2 of their masterclasses a week. You will arrive early to help set up the ingredients and supplies, during the class you will help clean the workstations as well as assist the students with their tasks if necessary, and you will stay after to help clean and reset the kitchen. You will have the opportunity to try the food at the end of the class and often times bring leftovers home; as well as the opportunity to meet and talk to renowned chefs from around the world. Highly recommended for food lovers! Benjamin Markowitz, Tufts. Fall 2023

My time at A Punto has been a challenge to learn a lot about the Spanish language, the local culture, and the food. I have met a lot of interesting people and eaten a lot of delicious dishes. I have learned to overcome being overwhelmed by the high demand and busy atmosphere, keep going, and ask for help. I have also been able to adapt to the Spanish values of work and school, which should not engulf the rest of my life and impede my ability to enjoy and take advantage of the world around me. Aviva Kardener, Tufts.

I am doing a lot of cleaning and organizing, but also learning a lot more Spanish vocabulary because I have to prepare ingredients for cooking classes. I am meeting a lot of interesting people, and I think this experience will give me a great thing to talk about in the future and have lasting impacts on my knowledge of food and Spanish in general. Emily Calobrisi, Tufts. Spring 2016
At A Punto, I was offered one of the most fun, effective and engaging ways to not only improve my Spanish but learn about Spanish culture through one of m y favorite things. Spain! Whether it was talking over a staff lunch to my bosses about their favorite Spanish ingredients, translating a classic recipe or assisting one of the chefs in a cooking class, I was never bored at A Punto and I was constantly pushed to speak and learn more and more!
