-What was your best experience in Spain?
-Well, I think that the most impresive thing I've seen are the "fallas" in Valencia. All the fireworks and the party in general were very impresive.
-But, are very different the cultures of Britain and Spain?
-I think that here, in Spain, the people are more relaxed: there are more parties and there are allowed a lot of thinks that in Britain aren't permitted. The "fallas" for example.
-Would you miss Spain? Would you return?
-Yes, I will return if I can. I like the weather, the food and the feast days (the "fallas" like I said before), but first I have to work a little bit to gain money and then I will think of turning back.
-Have you met many friends?
-Oh yes! I've met a lot of different cultures here.
-Did you ever feel homesick?
-Well, not really. I talked to my family and my friends by Skype and so many of my friends of England came here to visit me.
-Do you think you have improved your Spanish oral skills?
-Yes, in general yes.
-Do you like the food?
-Yes, of course. But there were big dishes and to different of England because in England the meat and these tipe of food are accompained by some vegetables or salad and here isn't.
-Yes, here the dishes of vegetables are served separated of the other dishes generally.
-Yhea! And that is so extrange to me. I think I have gained 1 stone! (aproximatly 6 kilos)
-I don't really think you have gained 6 kilos. The next question: which places of Spain have you visited?
-Oh well, I think I have traveled all around Spain: I've been in Toledo, Valencia, Sevilla, Merida, Cadiz, Salamanca...
