Finally finished this semester! woooo!
This week seemed like it would never end-as least school work wise. I know it’s still Wednesday, but tomorrow is going to be super busy, ad then Friday morning I’ll be en route to the UK!
Overall I loved this semester. School wise, I loved my classes. And for anyone looking for classes to pick at NYU Madrid in the future: I took a class on the Prado museum in spanish with prof Carmen Ana, who is literally the sweetest woman, and is super passionate about art. I also really loved my Techniques of Translations class, with Prof Perez, she was a totally cool teacher who taught us so much spanish slang and everyday things that made the class super interesting, along with translating super fun scripts like “American Beauty” and “Shrek” I also took Critical Approaches, which is about spanish literature, and it got me really interested in literature in general, and in learning about Spanish speaking countries and their cultures. And can’t forget about my Cultures & Contexts class, I learned a lot in this class, and the prof was someone I’ll never forget, you can tell that he’s super passionate about what he teaches and knows a ton.
In terms of the people I was with this semester, I can honestly say that there was a strong sense of community here, and I can’t wait to see everyone in NY. I’m gonna miss everyone!
