Auxiliares de Conversación

I've been working on this page for a while, trying to compile posts I've written that deal with the government program and life in Spain.  It's definitely a work in progress as I keep preparing for the start of the program and the official move to Spain.  I will try to update it throughout the year as I experience the program first-hand and share what I learn about life in Madrid.

Hopefully some of these posts have been, and will be helpful, for those interested in the program or in the process like I am.  Here's to a great first year to all of us on this new adventure!
