Hi,
So, I’ll tell you all what’s going on with me ;):

I’ve been offered my dreamjob: being a teacher of Spanish as a foreign language in Poland, at the academy one of my dearest friends owns there. I know I won’t become rich, mainly because I don’t have any previous experience and all that and, well, no offense intended, but it’s Poland, and there salaries are not too high actually… But working for my friend will be a real pleasure, I will be able to add 4 more phrases in Polish to the 4 I already know :mrgreen:, I will have the chance to visit Germany properly 😀 and at least one of the other 6 countries Poland have boundaries with. Besides, I will get experience in order to achieve one of my other 10 dreamjobs (having loads of illusions gives you more possibilities of achieving at least one: pure statistics :P): being a teacher for the Instituto Cervantes :).

Problems: 1.)Bureaucracy (both Spain and Poland are members of the European Union, it should be easier to arrange everything!!!!)

2.)MY BL*$%&%$$DY THESIS! Actually it is finished, but I have to defend it and all that, and until the whole process it is over I won’t be able to call my life a life :dead:.

If I cannot solve the bureaucracy from Spain, I will go and try to sort things out “in situ”, and even if I can’t, at least I could do some tourism and visit some friends. I deserve some vacation (I guess :geeked:).

Anyway I’m prepared for disillusion, and what is more: I’m vaccinated. But I hope that statistics will make some of my illusions come true, just for mercy or something :violin:.

Well, that’s all so far. I’ll tell you more as soon as I know something more. There’s other stuff going on this summer too, but telling everything about my life would be pretty boring for everyone.

Hope you are all enjoying yourself a lot these days! (It’s raining here 🙁 but we’re used to it, just a bit fed up, but used to it).

Hasta pronto 😉

9 Comments on FOR WHAT IS WORTH

  1. Wow, Calítoe, that sounds like a great opportunity! Congratulations! I thought Germany was the only country governed by bureaucrats, sorry to hear about that hassle!

    At least you will be paid! Some weeks ago I searched for a job teaching German in Central America (and learning Spanish at the same time), but they wanted money instead of giving me some! 😉 Yeah, anyway, I think you will enjoy this task big time!!

    How long will you be staying abroad?

  2. Frauke, haven’t you heard about Spanish bureaucracy? :dead: We are famous for that since the Roman Empire! :tongue: I think the main problems with me staying there is that Polish had such a light bureaucracy that they wanted to become “fully European” just at once 😛 (just my impression). If I am finally staying it’ll be for the whole Academic year.
    And… Haven’t you tried to teach German to Spanish students there? I’m sure there are a lot in Germany, more than German students in Central America, I reckon. 💡

  3. Fantastico!!!! Sono felicissima per te e spero che tutto vada per il meglio!!! Peccato soltanto che la Polonia non sia molto vicina all’Italia 🙂 Comunque anche a Trieste c’è una sede dell’istituto Cervantes, giusto per informazione :mrgreen:
    La burocrazia…Non ne parliamo, l’Italia è la patria della burocrazia. 😀
    Bacioni e in bocca al lupo!!! (in Italiano si dice ‘in bocca al lupo’ perchè porta più fortuna che ‘buona fortuna’!!!! 😕 )

  4. Mmm, un’informazione interessante 😉 A proposito, Trieste sta molto vicina alla Slovenia, no? La mia “ingquilina” Ajda vive in Slovenia. Quando vada per la zona vi visiterò alle due, se voi volete, evidentemente :tongue:. E molte grazie per il ‘in bocca al lupo’ :D.
