So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Season

This is an interview I received last October. Eek. As you can see, I’m a bit behind on my interviews. It seems they’re never ending, but I love it. Personally, I feel a learn a bit from every person I have the privilege to interview. That said, here’s Season!

American dating Spaniard

Hi! My name is Season, and I’m 30 years old. I came to Spain for the first time in August 2004 to study abroad in San Sebastian. Coming back to the States a year later, I was completely changed and knew that my time in Spain wasn’t finished. After completing my degree at the University of Nevada Reno, I found out about the Auxiliares de Conversación program, applied, and got accepted! I spent two years teaching at La Escuela Oficial de Idiomas in Irún, went back to Nevada for almost a year, and then came back to Irún to begin teaching English at a private academy. During this time I met my husband and knew that Spain was the place for me!

So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Katrina

Hello! Long time no blog, eh? While I get around to fighting my writer’s block, let’s have another interview with an American dating a Spaniard!

Trina Killian 1

Let’s see… My name is Katrina and I’m 21 years old currently studying to become a speech-language pathologist in Pennsylvania. I’m not living in Spain currently, but hope to teach English there for a few years after I graduate/before graduate school. It’s sort of ironic, as I chose not to study Spanish in high school due to its popularity (I did German) and am now thinking of teaching in Spain.

How did you meet your significant other?

I was at a party, looked across the room and saw this beautiful creature before me. My eyes instantly locked on his blue eyes and… just kidding, our meeting wasn’t conventional at all. We both were members of a pen pal website, InterPals, and happened to be online at the same time. He sent me a message and we started talking and it eventually became more frequent correspondences. After months of talking we managed to find the time to meet each other and it’s been steady for almost 2 years now!

So You’re Dating an American—Jorge

Wait, what? I thought this thing was the other way around? … You are right, my dear reader, you are right. But when one of my former interviewees, Kate, contacted me about doing a reverse interview, I thought, “Why not?” So I sent her boyfriend, Jorge, an interview, and he graciously filled it out for me. Kate blogs at Kate in Spain.

Now, I conducted the interview with Jorge in Spanish, because I believe writing/speaking in one’s native tongue allows one to be more forthright and expressive. So, I’ll be including his answers in Spanish and translating them as best I can.
