I made a huge step in my own development. It started with going outside the country, spending 3 weeks in a wonderful place, out of my comfort zone. Ireland. A very familiar atmosphere took place as my first impression. We made many plans, which were new for me, and they teach me many things, such as, to use a fridge with a water dispenser. There was a French girl with the same age, who became very close to me and never would I expected. In Ireland, people are very friendly, and they have a united spirit. (Team work). I realized how Ireland has many unique places. One of the best things about Ireland was the sunset. - Incredible-. The weather was colder than in Spain, that is obvious, but there had been some warm days. I had the chance to see traditional sports, shops, food, places... The aim of this project was to learn English, and I think that in those 3 weeks I learned many things. The important thing was the experience, which anyone can't take. This experience opened my mind and gave me the chance to get out of my comfort zone.
