In June, Marta Rodríguez-Sañudo (4th year of design) taught Spanish to three Malaysian siblings.
As Marta Rodríguez-Sañudo says, "summer is the perfect time to do things that you don't have time for during the school year or that you can't dedicate as much time to as you would like". Marta is a student in the 4th year of design and during the month of June she was teaching Spanish to three siblings from Malaysia. "I was going to spend a month in Pamplona finishing my TFG, but I didn't want my time to be limited to just that. So I got on contact with Tantaka and, in a few days, we had the classroom booked and a date to start," she explains.
Marta met with Hafisha, Nusayba y Usayd6, 8 and 12 year olds, twice a week in the high school Larraona. During the reinforcement classes she worked with them on vocabulary, practiced conversations and taught them some expressions that could be useful in their daily lives. "I was impressed by their eagerness and enthusiasm to learn and integrate into a new culture. That motivated me to prepare the classes as well as possible," she says. "In just one month they evolved a lot. Seeing that progress and how they enjoyed learning delighted me," she concludes.
