Studying Spanish with the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics not only presented me with an unforgettable opportunity to live and work abroad but also a knowledge and understanding of the many languages, cultures and traditions that form part of the Hispanic world. The modules relating to Hispanic art, film and literature are particular highlights of my time in the school and memories of which I share with my colleagues today. Since graduating I have made the short journey from the Newman building to the Applied Language Centre in UCD where I now work as part of our Pathways Programme – developing an entry way into UCD for international students. This is thanks to the experience which studying Spanish with SLCL has awarded me.
