Studying abroad is not only about learning, it is mainly about living. Studying abroad is enrolling in a fascinating university of Life, because when you live abroad you learn a different philosophy of life. Reading a novel or watching a film allows you to feel what it is like to live in someone else’s shoes, but only for a few hours. Life in a foreign country allows you to immerse yourself in a different world. Not only can you learn a new language, eat exotic-for-you-foods, experience local smells, see iconic landscapes or touch different textures; it offers you a unique understanding and perspective on how other people live life.
Culture comes from the medieval Latin cultus, which means both growing and cultivation. When you live abroad you can grow as a person because you “stretch” both your mind and your soul. And with “stretching” comes wisdom. You become more cultivated, more sympathetic, more flexible, and more humble. You will recognise that your way of living is only one of the infinite possible ones, and probably not the best. There are places where people live with passion. Spain is one of them, and our passion is contagious.
We, Spaniards, are so passionate about life that we don’t want to die!! Spanish women live longer than any others in the world. And that is not only because of how we honor and respect the fruits of our land. Mediterranean cuisine helps us to be healthier, but it is the human contact that sets us apart. The research is conclusive: the more friends you have, the longer you live. And we love making friends!!
We are people’s people!! And when you are going to live abroad you want to make sure that you feel welcomed. When you are learning a new language you need people who want to talk to you. When you want to learn how to live, you want to be among the best. Spain is the Kingdom of Good Living, but if you want to live in the “Palace” then you need to go to Valencia.
Valencia was chosen as the best city to live in the entire world by expatriates and its historical city center is Europe’s largest. Valencia is ranked among the safest cities in Europe, with a very low crime rate. Valencia is affordable -a flat is half the price than in Madrid or Barcelona. Valencia has the perfect size, you have it all at your grasp. It has 19 kilometers (12 miles) of beautiful sandy beaches and the perfect weather -more than 300 sunny days a year. Valencia is FUN!! It is home to the most popular fiestas in Spain -las Fallas-, a festivity that combines tradition, satire and art. Although, Valencians believe that every weekend brings an opportunity to celebrate life.
And in this city of Good Living, a school of life was born, Canvee Life School!!
