I studied Literature and Literature with a specialization in English Language, with two specializations, teaching and translation, at the University of Los Andes. This university is considered the first University in the country, because its research principle gives it a high prestige and position. It is a very particular university as far as geographic location is concerned, since it is the city of Mérida, with a spectacular climate, located between mountains and purely university; what makes life very pleasant and enjoyable. The faculties, in their majority, are in the center of the city; but the humanities is more towards the mountainous area. This is also a university with diverse programs for both humanists and scientists, with programs in engineering, architecture, health sciences, economics, law, among many others. It is also characterized by excellence in its teaching. In my studies, specifically, all the teachers were specialized in teaching and were native speakers of English (American and English), which made the experience much more enriching because it allowed me to better know the literature and the cognitive area of the language. The university was careful that teachers who were not teachers, for example doctors, dentists, engineers or some other specialist, were taught the teaching component. I can say that during my time university life was very particular, being easy to recognize to see the students to which faculty they belonged, given that there were dress codes and personal characterization depending on the race which was not seen in other universities. Although many things have changed over the years, the ULA is still the best university in Venezuela with international renown.View more
In my time when we graduated from high school, it was relatively easy to enter the University. My access was for Architecture in Merida, Venezuela to the ULA (Universidad Los Andes). My memories of that time, very good, because I chose a beautiful career that required a lot of dedication. They were nights of continuous work and holidays suspended until the last day, with great teachers to advise me during all that time; that finally brought enough satisfactions because I am an architect of one of the best universities in the country. The facilities and spaces of the Faculty were spectacular, I had very good colleagues with whom I still have very strong friendships, and especially the city where the university is located lent much to make the studies feel less strong. The city with an extraordinary climate, the population mostly student, a lot of sport and one of rich and typical food, all this and the desire to meet the goals achieved the desired end, the Graduation; a day of joy with your family and friends, for the culmination of the great experience that was this race.View more
