I’m studying as an exchange student in Barcelona, in Universitat Pompeu Fabra and I’m studying audiovisual communication. The university is huge and there are many campuses all over the city. I have courses on different campuses. When I first arrived here took some courses on the local, Catalonian, culture and I think it was very useful. Also I chose language courses and courses of my own field. I think language is a good way to learn about the culture. When I came here I didn’t speak the language but it’s getting easier. My audiovisual narrative course is in Catalan, which I didn´t speak at first so that is a challenge for me! But I believe, I will be able to pass the course. I´m a bit scared though.
On my free time I’ve been exploring Barcelona. I’ve been hanging out with friends, had some good food and really good mojitos in Rosa Negra. I’ve seen the beautiful architecture of Gaudi and the sunny beach. The atmosphere of the city is very laid back. There are so many beautiful things to see in Barcelona. Sagrada Familia is very beautiful I loved the Montserrat mountain and not very far away from Barcelona there is the museum of Salvador Dali which is very interesting.
I’ve met very good friends in here and I just love how international everything is. I have met people from all over the world. It’s nice to have classes with people from the other side of the planet, you learn so much!
I love Barcelona!
