Gente Dime – Our Spanish students in Barcelona – Sue

Dime is more than a Spanish Academy. It is a community of people who chose Barcelona as their home and Dime as their School. Our students are different and creative and they all have amazing stories to tell. In this section of Dime Barcelona Blog we are going to discover who they are and how they ended up being part of our Dime community.

GENTE DIME: Sue
Sue is from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina – EEUU) and she arrived to Barcelona 5 months ago. Sue and her husband moved here for retirement. This is not their first time in the city. They lived in the city for one year and a half about 8 years ago because of her husband’s work. They enjoyed so much the experience that they decided to come back as soon as they could.

Sue is the president of the International Women’s Club Barcelona. The IWCB is an English-speaking association for dynamic international women who would like to make new friends and discover the vibrancy of life in Catalonia. Each month they organise a wide variety of events such as weekly coffee mornings, monthly walks, line dancing and a lot more. Women from different nationalities participate to the events and collaborate voluntarily with the association.

She is now living in Gracia and she really loves the neighborhood, especially its squares. “Las plazas de Gracia” are the heart of the quarter and the place where people meet and chat.

Sue is studying Spanish to communicate and to be social. She is now attending an extensive morning course and she is finishing A2 level. What she likes the most about the school is that Dime is a friendly and familiar school, with reduced size class that allow you to learn quickly in a nice environment.

He thinks that the teachers of the school really encourage you to study and to improve your knowledge of the language.

GENTE DIME: Charlie 
Charlie @charlielemmer is from London (UK) and she arrived to Barcelona 2 and a half years ago.
She always had many friends in Barcelona and had a nice connection with the city. Also Brexit influenced her decision to move here.
She has an interiorist and property company and she is also a health coach and nutritionist. Her favourite working places in Barcelona are @margothousebarcelona and @cococoffice.

She loves walking down Rambla Cataluña in the afternoon and have a drink in one of its terraces.
She is learning Spanish because she thinks it is important to do so if you live in Barcelona. She is now taking private lessons in Dime and what she likes the most about the school is the personal attention we give to all our students.

Raval field trip. Free Spanish activity in Barcelona

The calendar of free Spanish activities for our students in Autumn is full of many interesting ideas. One of the most popular activity is the field trip to the Raval neighborhood. It is without any doubt one of the most interesting areas of Barcelona nowadays.

Jorge, the coordinator of our Spanish School, guided our students through its streets. He explained a bit of history and curiosities about buildings and monuments. We discovered secret corners and we had a nice time together.  Students with different level of Spanish and from different courses took part to the excursion.  Some of them came with theirs children and relatives. We were a really international group!

If you want to see more pictures of the event you can check our facebookpage or our instagram profile.

Next activity will be a cultural lesson about “Finding job in Spanish” next Thursday 29th of November. Our teacher Anna will explain us how to use Spanish language while you are looking for a job. It will be a really interesting and useful class.

Let’s join us!

Dime Barcelona’s video 2018. Shooting set.


This week we had two intense and funny days of video shooting. We are preparing a video for our new website which will be ready for 2019. It has been an amazing experience. This nice project has given us the opportunity to better know our students and to create fruitful connections in our Dime Community. We talked about learning Spanish in Barcelona, about languages in general and about life experiences. We discovered awesome stories and we had a great time together.

..

First of all we would like to thank you our student and videomaker @billycraigan. He is the one who came to us with this wonderful idea. And also we want to thank you @charlielemmer, @benjamin_eric, @ttfotosportraits, @elgregman, @bellahuddart and all our students who took part in the shooting and shared their time with us. They are making our Gente Dime Community bigger and more interesting day by day.

You can see more pictures in our facebook page or in our Instagram.
