Eugenio: Hello.
Adrián: Hello.
E: Ok, first of all, could you introduce yourself?
A: Yes, of course. I'm Adrián. I'm English teacher. I live here in Alcoy.
Well, not here now, but in Alcoy. What do you want to know about
E: Where are we now?
A: We are in Muro de Alcoy. It's a small city of Alicante. And... we are
here because we are trying to becoming actors or something like that.
And just for hobby too. So, we are here to practice, to train our action.
And... here we are
E: Ok. And... well, you said that we are going to practice some play,
well, a specific play. Can you describe a little bit the play that we are
about to rehearse?
A: Yeah, of course. It's about a crime that it's being... it took place in...
I don't remember the place exactly, but it took place in...
E: is it in United States? I think.
A: I don't know. I don't know.
E: Well, the names are in English.
A: Ok, yes. [they] are English, but I don't know the specific name of
the place that took place. Well, it's a crime in... of a rich men, that is
called... Oh my god... I don't remember the names neither
E: The dead guy.
A: Yes, the dead guy. Yes, absolutely, that's a good name.
E: But, does he have a name?
A: Yeah, Elvin...
E: Elvin.
A: Elvin...
E: Elvin Galton!
A: Like the squirrel.
E: The squirrel? Why do you say the squirrel?
A: Because Elvin and the squirrels.
E: Ah, it's based on that cartoon TV show?
A: No, of course not. Well, I don't think so. I'm not sure, but I don't
think so. It's a proper name for a... that's the relation between the
name of the squirrel and the... plate. So, I don't know. So, what else?
Yes. The death of this guy and the detectives and his partner, they
are trained to solve the crime, the murder, and... that's all. So out that.
That's the plot of the story.
(Someone appears with his car)
E: So, who is he?
A: He is Adam. He's the main actor.
E: The leading actor.
A: Yeah, the leading actor. And Yolanda as well. She's an actress
from the theatre.

E: Ok, my friend, let's continue. Can you tell me a little bit about what
you did... last weekend?
A: Last weekend? I'm... I went to. Well, I usually go to... a place when
I... When I was... where with... when I'm with children doing some
activities, like Juniors or scouts, you may know...
E: During the weekend?
A: Yes... no! During the weekend, no. Last weekend.
E: Last weekend.
A: Yes.
E: Because you said that you usually do this...
A: Yes, all the weekends. So, that's why I said that. During the
weekend, I'm... I was walking all days, because I'm teacher... in a
academy, so I was spending all the time doing exercises, exams and
that kind of things. And in the afternoon... in the morning I was in the
canteen feeding children and playing with them and...
E: You were not working, were you?
A: Yes, I was. Yes.
E: You were working?
A: Yes.
E: On Saturday morning?
A: Saturday? You're talking about Saturday?
E: Well, the weekend.
A: Only the weekend? Not the week? Ok. At the weekends, I spend
time with children too because I'm in Juniors, so I'm... a educator. So,
I spent time a lot of time with time all... days. All days no, all
weekends. And we plan games and dynamics, different dynamics.
So, it’s... we do it a lot this kind of activities, and... of course, we learn
a lot of things from them. It's a good experience.
E: Talking about your experience, as a teacher. Well, as a...
A: Educator.
E: Educator. Yeah, but how would you say your work in the academy
as a teacher... but it's not a normal teacher, not the kind of teacher
that teaches a subject, some knowledge. It's about what?
A: Yeah, it's different, yes. Because I used to try to help them to
improve the subjects that they have failed, or something. But I think
[it] is more or less the same because I... I have the experience to be
a normal teacher, a general teacher, and a private teacher, so It's
more or less the same finally, but... Of course, I have studied to be a
teacher, a normal teacher, and meanwhile we can practise, me and
my partners, we can practise how to improve our experience, and how
to get some learning from children, other teachers in some other
places, so It's...
E: But do you think that the current work that you're doing now is
different from the public one?
A: Absolutely, it's different. Because they are following laws and we
are not following laws. We have the freedom to adapt every child
and... that makes the things easier.
E: Yes, but you are talking about the curriculum, the contents. I was
talking about the style, the techniques that you're applying to the... I
mean, do you think that you would act differently if you were...?
A: No, no. Well, it's different in some aspects. The main aspect that
is different is that, of course, we have less students that if we are in a
school, so you act different and you explain the things more individual,
child per child, and it's different from... That's the only difference, but
the rest is more or less the same, the style, the technique, you have
to adapt every child, but in a school, you have to confront all the 25
students and [it] is different from an academy because you are
focusing in one child... well, six is the total per class. So, [it] is easier.
E: Do you tell them to do homework or not?
A: Mmmh, not, not in the academy. They have to do the homework
that they have been order[ed] from the school or if I... if I say to do
some homework is just to improve or to continue the working that the
things that we have talked before, so... but not usually.
E: I guess that you have already finished the degree, your degree...
A: Yeah, I'm teacher, Primary teacher.
E: The name would be primary education. I guess that you've done
also the traineeship, so you've worked for the Administration
A: Yeah, I'm familiar with...
E: What differences have you seen between the private education
and the public education? I mean, the main differences.
A: The main differences...
E: I mean, those things that were really shocking for you.
A: Yes, I would say that the main difference is the religion because in
public education you have the option, but you are not focusing your
system or your project in religion and in a private school, of course,
they have to follow rules and they have to follow the Jesus' style of
life. And that's why is different. The main difference is that.
E: You said, where did you do your traineeship?
A: In Arnauda. It's a private school.
E: Okay.
A: But I know how it was in public education.
E: The relation and the obligation to interact with the Administration,
it would be the same...
A: I know exactly the difference in that aspect, but...
E: Tell me a little bit about your future
A: My future.
E: Because now you're working in an academy. What have you
planned for the next course?
A: I definitely will be doing less than this year because I think...
E: Less? Less what? Less work?
A: Less work. Because I feel like a bit... with plenty of things, a very
stressful life I think I have, so I have to decide if it's better to choose
one thing, or two or three because I can't live properly or in a
comfortable way just doing what I am doing all the days. Besides
spending a lot of time doing homework, studying… because with
children, and I have a bit…
E: Because you are working and studying at the same time.
A: Yeah. Studying, working in different places with different bosses
and it's a bit...
E: Stressful.
A: Yeah, stressful. You have to adapt to a lot of places and you have
to change one place to another place. You have to have lunch and so
quickly because if not, you are not on time in the academy. It’s a bit
stressful for me, so I will change, I’m going to change the… my life
next September and I...
E: Your whole life?
A: No, not my whole life. I will continue with some... with some things
that I have actually, but...
E: Such as?
A: Such as… academy I will continue definitely and... I’m not, I don’t
know about junior because it’s a hobby, but it implies that you have to
be there all the weekends and it’s a bit... tough. So, I don’t know. I
have to think about it. I’m not sure about my future and I don't know
what I want to do.
E: What would you like to do?
A: I would like to do... I would like to be in the Caribbean Ocean or
something. Just spending hours...
E: Because you love traveling
A: Yeah, absolutely. I love travel.
E: What is your next destination?
A: I don't have enough time to go abroad or... to travel all that I want,
but the next travel...
E: The next destination?
A: the next destination would be probably... well, my next destination
is actually in Disney Land, in Paris.
E: ah, when?
A: The 29th of April.
E: In two months? Well, more than two months.
A: Yeah, so that’s my next destination.
E: You must be eager to start with that adventure.
A: Yeah, but I'm feeling calm[ed] because I am getting used to travel
a lot, so I'm not nervous or excited. It’s just another travel.
E: You've travelled a lot these last weeks... Well, not last weeks, the
last months because I know that you’ve been in Budapest, in...
A: In Norway, no. In Sweden, in Stockholm and...
E: How many places have you visited?
A: Wow, that’s a good question. I don’t know. Well, I was in
E: Belgium.
A: Belgium, yes, sorry.
E: Because Belgique is...
E: Belgique is in french, I know.
A: I was in Stockholm, in Sweden, in Portugal, in Italy, in France, in...
of course I… I visited all... not all, but most of the main cities of Spain.
And… maybe Holland... Holland, no, the Netherlands.
E: Holland is...
A: Holland is in the north. They explained that it belongs to the north.
E: I don’t know if you know this fact but Norwegian...
A: The company.
E: Yeah, they’re offering tickets to go to New York for 140-160, not in
summer, not on holidays, but...
A: It will be bad days.
E: March, that’s the problem, the days. But if you can find a week you
can go to New York for 300-360. Not the same as...
A: It's a very good price. I have to check that. Maybe. I don’t know.
The date. I don’t have plenty of time.
E: How many... because now, right now... I want to ask you this. Right
now you’re studying and working at the same. You’re working in the
academy. How many hours do you spend there?
A: It depends of the day, but the more...
E: In a week?
A: In a week, 20 hours, more or less. 20 hours in the academy and in
the canteen... 'till... No. We start at 11 o'clock and we finish... we finish
at 3 pm.
E: That during the mornings, and then in the afternoon, you go to the
A: But if you count the...
E: And when do you study?
A: The mornings, the Wednesday I have... I have classes, so
Wednesdays I used to... I usually study. Wednesdays only... and
E: Because, what are you studying?
A: I’m studying to get my advance[d] level in English and of course
I'm studying… the DECA. Do you know what is the DECA? It’s the
religion subject. well it’s the… it’s like... the permission to have… to
teach religion in a private school, so it’s… you need a title. For
everything is a title. Because I would like to be part of a school... a
private school, that’s Arnauda, and teach religion as I’m junior and
everything. Are you…?

E: So we were saying... are you a religious person?
A: Mmmh, yes.
E: Are you a religious person? a catholic person? How do you
consider yourself?
A: I am catholic because I'm... I always go to... On Saturdays, I have...
I go to… How to say in English... Ecuaristía… I don't know...
Ecuaristic time could be… I don’t know… Well, I go to the church and
I go there with the children and I feel that it’s important to teach them
that… Well, I’m not a strict religious person, but I feel like we have to
transmit some values to children. And I think, through Juniors and that
kind of association, [it] is easier to transmit them all and... because
we don’t have, in our daily routine, to stop and to think about our
feelings or emotions and Juniors is like… you have time to think about
yourself, to… to manage your emotions, your feelings and to... to
transform them if it is necessary or to change something of your
character that is not... or your personality that is not... good, you know.
So, it’s a manner of… of trying to transmit how I feel... how can I feel
better with myself with, of course, with people like me or like them.
the equals, so...
E: So I guess that you’ve been part from the Juniors group and now
you’re an educator.
A: Exactly, yeah.
E: And how is this change...
A: The change is amazing because you have to prepare a lot of
games and things and dynamics, so... you're trying to... to get part of
this change and to... motivate them to continue in this way because I
feel like it's... every person... everyone it has to live one camp, at least
one camp, because the experience that you live there, it's touch to
you forever and the experiences that I have... every camp are
amazing. We are all friends. My friends and me are always... every
member in things. And It's amazing, just amazing, so it's a experience
that I want to teach to the other, not only go to the cinema or go with
friends. I think it's better to enjoy the nature or the... about yourself,
your feelings, because we don’t have time to think about ourselves,
so I think it's the best opportunity to try to discover the world and our
own world.
E: That’s good. Do you think that...
A: So I'm religious for that? Yes, maybe. I don’t know.
E: Do you believe in God.
A: I believe in Jesus, not in church or... because I think the church
has made a lot of mistakes and they are… well, it’s a controversial
topic but I think church... it has to change a lot if they want to transmit
something, they are not transmitting nothing.
E:To transmit the values that they proclaim.
A: Of course, but they are... they are teaching a bad God, a punisher
and it’s not the God as I understood... Or the God that I have been
taught, so... It has to change, absolutely, because I feel like it’s not...
It doesn't exist a hell or a heaven. The heaven, it could be the real life
or the hell even too. So I think you have to … you have to... to try to
discover which is the heaven, that can be surrounded by people that
you love or even your friends, family, [it] doesn't matter. And the hell
of course are the bad things that you... or bad acts that you have
commit and you have to change that because if not, you're not going
to be happy, just as simple as that. I think the heaven and the hell is
the real life. You don’t have to...
E: As a metaphor.
A: Yeah, you don't have to take the holly bible just like that, you have
to go deeper and… and try to teach the real life, not the... a heaven...
if you’re dead, you will go to the heaven, and god is watching you…
No, of course not.
E: That’s a good way to end this conversation. Thank you very much.
A: Thank you too.
