Blog Entry: Day 1

Diary Number: 1

Date: 12/11/18

Daily Summary

Today was my first day at my work placement. It was a great day over all, we had a quick induction with the principal of the school and we were taken into the infant room where we will be spending the next two weeks. When we finished work we were taken on a tour of the city and got to see a lot of old building and monuments, they were beautiful. After the tour we got free time to relax and do a spot of shopping.

Learning & Positive Aspects of the Day

Today I learnt a lot about Granada, and it was really interesting to observe how the schools run in comparison to back home in Ireland.

Challenges Encountered

I had a few challenges to day, the main one being the language barrier, especially with the children and another challenge is trying not to get lost.


I was very tired and overwhelmed today, but I’m hoping tomorrow will be a better day.


We got to see a lot of Spanish culture today from different foods to old buildings and monuments, and a small bit of history about each building.
