GETTING TO KNOW PEOPLE FROM ...
INTERVIEWED: Emil Suokas NATIONALITY: Finnish INTERVIEWERS: Alba Ramírez.
Emil, did you choose Valencia to spend an “academic course” or just for living here? “I chose Valencia only because its warm and I had heard that Valencia is pretty nice. I'm here because I want
to learn Spanish. I don't have to study or pass the exams.” -So this is a kind of gap year. Isn't it? And how did you end up in Misericordia 26? "Yes, that's right! Well, at first, I wanted to go to another school that is next to Safranar, but I couldn't do it
because I had to go in the afternoon and evening, and I wanted to play basket then, so I had to change my plans and come to Misericordia." -Is this your first time in Spain? “No. This is my third time here. I've also been in Bilbao and Barcelona to see final basket competitions.” -How long will you be here? “I will be here until the 24th of June” -Who are you living with? What are they like? “I'm living with a Spanish family who took me in but I didn't know them before. They are very nice, but when I came here, I didn't speak Spanish and they only speak Spanish, so it was hard
at first, but now everything is going fine.”
