Zuleka - 2018

I decided to attend the Intensive Spanish and Culture in Granada, Spain program because I study Spanish at the University of Queensland and I wanted to improve my Spanish communication skills. You can learn a lot at UQ about grammar, vocab etc. but it is very hard to progress from a level of knowing how to communicate to being actually able to communicate. The program was not as effective as I anticipated in improving my speaking skills; however, my listening skills have greatly improved and I hope this will be beneficial both at uni for the remainder of my degree and also in the future when I graduate.
