We would like to explain the situation we are in right now in Spain and in many other countries and how we organize classes during these days in Escuela Mediterráneo Tandem Barcelona.
Firstly, the government has announced the Alarm State to deal with the spread of the virus. What does this mean? Well, in the next few days, all stores and services will be closed, except pharmacies and grocery stores. It is requested not to leave the house unless it is necessary, to avoid groups of many people 🏠.
These measures are important so that the virus does not spread any further, to protect everyone and not to collapse hospitals.
If you feel bad, have a fever or cough … it is best to stay home and rest. Only in very severe cases is it recommended to go to a hospital. You can contact your health insurance or embassy to give you more recommendations or to have a professional come to your home.
It is also important not to go to the supermarkets in groups to buy groceries. Food is NOT GOING TO END, it will continue to be available, so we can buy what we need every three or four days, washing our hands well when we go out and when we come back and keeping a distance with other people …
Above all, it is important to remain calm🙏. Many of you are far from your friends and family, but think that this situation will end, and remember: YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Although we all need to stay at home, it is important that we take care of each other through WhatsApp, video calls, etc.
And now, we would like to explain how we are going to organize the SPANISH CLASSES: People who have already enrolled have received an email from their teacher explaining how we are going to use HANGOUTS MEET and DRIVE. And you have already done your first classes like this successfully.
People who want to enroll and study online at school: write to email@example.com, take the level test on our website, send us the pre-registration and we will explain how to enroll and start classes.
We can take advantage of this time at home to slow down, take care of ourselves, do things that we like, cook, read, watch movies, do yoga and above all … TO LEARN SPANISH!
