Spanish Erasmus student and his time in Gdansk
Who are you? Briefly describe yourself (where do you come from, what do you study, etc.)
I'm Sergio Tárrego M., an Erasmus student in the UG, studying geography. I'm from Castellón, Spain. I was born in 1991
What has surprised you in Poland?
That, although usually is raining or snowing, the people do the daily life as a sunny day, having always ready a coat equipped with the necessary for that.
How did you come up with the idea of studying in Poland?
Some friends that stayed in Kraków told me that the life is cheaper than in Spain. The people are friendly and to the people you have to use English, not French or German as in other countries.
Do you remember the first days of studying in Poland? Describe the struggles you went through:
We knew that the lessons were in Polish, not in English on other degrees and it wasn't some good news, and also the classes are not regular and one week, there were lessons, but not on the next one.
Tell us about the differences between studies in Poland and studies in Spain:
I think Spanish universities are harder and more difficult than here, though the English level in the students are better here.
What do you like about studying in Poland?
I think the lessons would have to be more participative for the Erasmus: We want to meet new people and to go to party, but also to learn.
Do you know any famous people from Poland?
Robert Lewandowski, Roman Polanski, Boniek, Lech Walesa.
Describe the places in Poland, that have a positive influence on you:
Molo, the centre of Kraków, Castle of Malbork and the salt mines.
Tell us about the country you've always wanted to visit, but still haven't:
New Zealand. Is one of the most beatiful country in the earth, but it's too far.
Are you a member of any student's club or organization? Tell us something about it:
I have the card of ESN Poland, but still now it hasn't been very useful
Have you made any permanent relations with polish students? What you like the most in them?
Yes. At first is hard to speak with them, because they don't speak a lot, but after that, they are very friendly and kind.
Would you like to come back to Poland in the future? Why?
Yes, because the way to live is similar in Spain, and also, because i love the snow and the cold is not a very big problem.
