Ben Ispanya´nin güneyinde „Girnata“ adiylada bilinen Granada şehrindeki „Escuela Montalbán“ dil okulunda 3 aylik bir staj yaptim. Hem şehrin kendisine, hemde ordaki yaşam tarzina hayran kaldim.
Endülüs tarzindaki hoş bir avluya sahip olan okulda, bilgili ve neşeli öğretmenler sayesinde, stajim çok eğlenceli ve rahat geçti. Bu okul yaklaşik 20 senedir yabanci öğrencilere ispanyolca kurslari vermekte. Buradaki kurslarda, ispanyolcayi daha çabuk ve verimli bir şekilde öğreniyorsunuz. Ayrica farkli ülkelerden gelen öğrenciler sayesindede ingilizcenizi bile geliştirme ve yeni arkadaşlar edinme şansiniz var. Kursda öğrenmiş olduğunuz ispanyolcayi, burdaki günlük hayat´da kullanabilmek, çok faydali oluyor.
Granada şehri çok farkli bir karaktere sahip. Bu şehir en parlak çağını, Müslümanların yönetiminde olduğu 13-15 asırlar arasında yaşamış ve günümüzde caddelerde, arka sokaklarda, binalarda ve anitlarda bu izler hala görülmekte. Hiristiyanlarin görkemli katedralleri ve kiliseleride görmeye değer. Elhamra sarayinin eşsiz bahçeleri, havuzlari ve zarafetide bugünkü zamana adeta meydan okumakta.
Ayrica dünyaca ünlü yazar Federico García Lorca ve Flamenko sanatçisi Enrique Morente gibi bir çok Flamenko şarki ve danscilari bu şehirde doğup büyümüşler. Genelde akşamlari, muhteşem bir atmosferde büyüleyici Flamenko ve müzik şovlarini muhakkak izlemelisiniz . Granada´nin farkli semtlerinde değişik etkinlikler sunulmakta olduğundan, burdaki zamaniniz çok renkli ve macerali geçecektir.
Granada´da her zevke göre bir şeyler bulmak mümkün: kültür, tarih, sanat, eğitim, eğlence, yemek, müzik vs.
Bu staj benim için unutulmaz bir tecrübe idi ver herkese buraya gelip bu güzelikleri yaşamanizi tavsiye ediyorum!!!

Mam na imię Sylwia i w ciągu miesiąca uczestniczyłam w kursie języka hiszpańskiego w szkole Montalbán. Moja podróż językowa okazała się być świetnym doświadczeniem i bez wahania mogę polecić tą szkołę :)
Co więcej, Granada jest miastem naprawdę różnorodnym i z pewnością przyciągnie tych, których ciekawi historia muzułmańskiej epoki miasta i jego piękno! To właśnie ten aspekt sprawia, ze Andaluzja aż kipi mieszanką kultur i ma swój wyjątkowy urok!!
Mimo, że zajęcia z języka hiszpańskiego były prowadzone na wysokim poziomie i nieraz trzeba było przyłożyć się do nauki, to zawsze pozostawało trochę czasu wolnego na rozrywki :) Szkoła oferuje wiele ciekawych programów, ja postanowiłam wybrać się na spektakl Flamenco w ogrodach Generalife, zwiedzić Alhambrę, Sewillę i zarzyć kąpieli w arabskich łazniach, które mogę serdecznie polecić! Pobyt w Granadzie zdecydowanie podniósł mój poziom języka hiszpańskiego, ale był również czasem zawarcia międzynarodowych przyjazni, które mam nadzieję przetrwają lata! W szkole Montalbán miałam okazję poznać wspaniałych ludzi z całego świata, razem uczyliśmy się języka, zwiedzaliśmy Andaluzję i bawiliśmy do białego rana w weekendy!!!
Pozdrawiam wszystkich, których miałam okazję poznać podczas moich wakacji w Hiszpanii i nie Adios, ale Hasta Luego Compañeros!!!!!
Saludos de Polonia!

Studying at the Escuela Montalban has for me been a great experience from both a cultural and linguistic point of view. The classes, always organised in small numbers, are interesting and dynamic, and the teachers always make sure to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere so that it becomes a pleasure to learn Spanish! You also study in a truly international atmosphere with students representing cultures from all over the world, which you discover in addition to the Spanish lifestyle. What I enjoyed most about this school was the staff and the students’ friendliness and openess, which definitely helps to make you feel at home in a foreign country. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who is looking to improve their Spanish in a friendly environment and keep great memories of Andalusia!
