So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Constance

Today I’m interviewing Constance! There aren’t many more interviews to go, but I know there’s more of you out there! Constance blogs at Escrito por Coquito.


My name is Constance but friends and family call me Coco. I’m 23 and have just completed my first school year teaching in Madrid as a language and culture assistant in a Spanish highs school and have renewed for my second year. I first visited Spain when I went on a study abroad trip to Salamanca in 2012. I fell head over heels in love with the country as most tend to do and decided that no matter what, I was going to find a way to go back.

So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Zoë

So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Chelsea

It seems I do a lot of interviews with girls named Chelsea who are dating Spaniards. This is number three! If you are named Chelsea and you are also dating a Spaniard, you know where to contact me.

I’m a 24 year old California native who has been living in Madrid for the past year working as an auxiliar de conversación. My story is fairly similar to others’ who have been featured here. I studied abroad during the spring of 2011 and found that a semester wasn’t enough time in Spain. Plus, there was a dashing Spaniard waiting for me. So I came back.
