Interviews with our exchange students:
Ximena Hernandez - Mexico
What´s the best thing about La Salle University?
You become part of a big family, your classmates become your brothers and sisters because that is what defines our educational ambient. You learn how to live with the charisma of De La Salle and spread it to the world.
Why would you recommend other students to go on exchange, and to La Salle?
Because it would change how you see the world. By going on exchange, we become change agents. The main idea is that La Salle teaches us to be committed persons who help better the community. It is like we are a big family, I really like La Salle University.
Astrid Moons – Belgium
What´s the best thing about La Salle?
The school hours were really good, we could go to school and do our tasks and then visit some things in Madrid. The teachers were really nice and helpful if you had any questions.
The school has great hours to go to school and that you also can visit some other things afterwards. The practice is also really nice, and everyone is very friendly.
Thomas Donvil - Belgium
I like the people at La Salle. I like the teachers and the students. Everyone is so nice to you. In Brussels, where I study, everyone is a bit distant. I don't have any contact with my classmates unless in class itself. After school everyone goes home and does their own thing but in La Salle it's different. Most of the times we get a coffee after school or go to the park, do something nice. I like that. Also, the teachers are closer to you. In Brussels it's like they are 'untouchable'. They seem to be a level higher than the students. In La Salle you get the feeling that everyone is equal. Teachers give you a kiss for example. That would be unacceptable in Belgium! In La Salle you really get the feeling you're one of them. It's easy to fit in this way. In Belgium I don't like going to class because everyone is a bit selfish.
No one will help you take notes or anything but, in La Salle, it seems that everyone is always ready to help you!
Wow, where should I start. To begin with: if you go on exchange without friends or classmates, in the beginning you will feel a bit lonely, a bit lost. When you arrive at La Salle and you meet Maria (The international coordinator) for the first time, you will feel at home immediately! Throughout your exchange she's also always there for you, whatever your problem is. All the teachers are very nice and always willing to help you. I also liked the subjects we got. I learnt something more about sustainable development or ergonomics for example, things I didn't know anything about before. In general, La Salle is a small but very nice school. (Also, the food is really cheap and really good in the cafeteria 😉)
To go on exchange was probably the best decision I've ever made in my life. In the beginning I was a little homesick but the closer I'm getting to the end of my exchange, the more I want to stay in Madrid. It's fun to get to know other people and make friends from other countries. And one of the best parts of exchange for me is to get to know yourself in and out. You live differently here than at home. It's like growing up and becoming independent in a couple of months. I learnt to do the laundry, to iron, to cook… Things I wouldn't do at home because my mom would do it for me. So for everyone doubting to go on exchange: it's the best experience of your life!
