Why did I decide to come to Gran Canaria in the first place? And how did I get here? I will answer these two questions in the following paragraphs.😃
NikaTeacher in Las Palmas
A traineeship at NikaTeacher language school💚 is the number one reason that I’m currently staying in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, although I’ve wanted to visit the Canary Islands for a very long time so two of my wishes came true.😊 NikaTeacher is a language school that offers an Erasmus traineeship in different areas, such as language teaching, social media administration and content creation. If you are a student and finishing your studies or you are searching for work experience 📝, I invite you to send an application to NikaTeacher language school and maybe you can get the chance to gain valuable work experience here. 👍 Additionally, if you are just coming here for a vacation you can come to NikaTeacher school and start learning or improving your English or Spanish. 🇬🇧 🇪🇸
Airlines that fly to Gran Canaria
How to get to Gran Canaria? By far the fastest way is flying here and probably the cheapest airline that flies to LPA Gran Canaria Airport is Ryanair.✈ There is a direct flight from Venice Treviso to Gran Canaria, so if you are an Erasmus student from Slovenia 🇸🇮 (like me) coming on an exchange or traineeship this is the best option. Ryanair will also be your best bet if you are coming from Italy or the UK for example.🙂 Beside Ryanair, airline company AirEuropa also operates a lot of connections towards Canary Island destinations, so this is another good option if you can find a nearby location from where you can fly. But if you are unsure, it’s always an option to check out all the possible combinations of flights on the web page skyscanner.net. Skyscanner is a web page that calculates the best possible flight option either by the time of travel 📅 or by the price💰, considering all the airlines that fly from different airports. So, if you are not sure whether you have a connection between a nearby city and Gran Canaria the easiest way to check it out is through Skyscanner.
Accommodation in Las Palmas
What surprised me very much was that unlike other Spanish cities, it is a lot easier to find accommodation🏠 in Las Palmas. Since this island is very touristic you have a lot of Airbnb options if your stay is going to be only for a few months.😊 You can also find accommodation through the web page Idealista, but I’m more of a fan of Airbnb because you have a bigger guarantee, as all your money is transferred thought the Airbnb platform. But the point is that you don’t have to worry about accommodation because you will certainly find it.👍 Here’s another blog post from an Erasmus exchange student that was here at NikaTeacher in 2017. This one can also help you with the accommodation problems.
Now we would like to hear from you: if you had to pick 1 reason to invite your foreign friend to Gran Canaria, what would it be?🙃 If you have AMIGOS 👩🧒 who are soon coming to Gran Canaria, please share this post with them: I’m sure they will find it extremely helpful.
Good luck and until next time!✋
