Anna, her Spanish teacher, interviews Asia at the end of her 4 week CSS Valencia TY programme in Les Carolines school in Picassent, Valencia:
Asia: Yo fui a Andorra a esquiar con Laia y su familia y fue muy divertido. Fuimos a ir a las compras o a comer. Nos quedamos en un piso. Después del las clases, voy a el patio con Laia y sus amigas Raquel, Carla y Alicia. Van a ir a Dublín. Cuando el colegio finaliza, voy con Laia al gimnasio o en el centro a Valencia a ir de compras.
Las clases no han sido muy difíciles. Hice un pequeño proyecto sobre la gente famosa y personajes históricos, como Leonardo da Vinci y Ché Guevara.
