Our formers language assistants give their point of wiev about how is working in Santa Teresa.

Mr. Connor Lang. USA. Year 2019-2020:

«I was an auxiliar de conversación in Santa Teresa during the 2019-2020 school year. My time at Santa Teresa and in Jaén was one of the best experiences of my life. I was immediately welcomed by both students and staff on my first day. Walking through the halls of the school is the closest I’ll ever be to feeling like a celebrity. Years later I still maintain contact with some of the teachers and I hope to return to see the school in the near future. I was very impressed with how bright and engaged the students were and I connected with them on a deep level.

Jaén itself was beautiful and I think it was a perfect place for a guiri like me to live. I learned more about olive oil than I thought was possible, and now back in the United States I exclusively buy olive oil from Spain (and from Jaén when I can find it). I had such a culturally immersive experience, from trying migas at 4 Esquinas to running the San Antón to dancing in the tents at Féria, my time in Jaén could not have been better.

Although I didn’t arrive to Jaén crying, I sure did leave the city crying. Thanks, Santa Teresa!»
