Hello and welcome to Mansion Interviews, a podcast which gives me an excuse to talk to interesting people while at the same time improving your English.
When I saw Bea’s website destinoreinounido.com I thought ‘What a wonderful idea, a website in Spanish to help Spanish speakers who want to go to the Uk to work, study and live.’
I started to look aroud Bea’s site and I found a wealth of information on everything from work and job interviews, tourism, accommodation in the UK and all that important and necessary stuff concerning bureauocracy and red tape, tax, National Insurance, Health, even what plug (enchufe) you need in the UK.
I was amazed at how useful and accessable the information is on Bea’s site so I wanted to have a chat with her and introduce you to her and her website, because you too might be thinking of going to live and work in the uK. Or, you might be already there!

Nice interview again, thanks! Wonderful young woman, so lively!
I was wondering if you could ask Kieran for another interview? It would be lovely to hear how his year has gone until now … and how about his dogs 🙂 You could exchange opinions about everything.. and of course if you would like to have more opinions you could invite Reza to come with you!
I’d love to interview Kieran again. In fact, he said his partner wants to be interviewed about Cambridge exams. He’s definitely on my list for a ’round two’.
