Q & A with Jaume Verger Fiol


Michael Hood, Reporter

Q: What do you usually like to do in your free time?

A: Play with my phone, speak with friends, and I go out and play a little bit of lacrosse and soccer.


Q: How is SHS different than your school back in Spain?

A: You have to move to your class, (but) in Spain, we don’t have to move. We have our own class and teachers came to our class and leave. We don’t have any subject choices, you must do math, biology, chemistry, all of that stuff. Over here you have a lot of freedom with your schedule.


Q: What’s your favorite sport?

A: Soccer; I’ve played it all of my life, and in Spain, soccer is the most important. Not only sport but anything. It’s the most important thing in the country.


Q: What’s your favorite school subject?

A: Physics. It’s a blend of math and science, and I can see myself doing something with physics one day, like being an engineer or something.


Q: What is your favorite American food?

A:  Chick-fil-a. It is real chicken, not like McDonald’s where it’s not really chicken. My host father knows how it works, so you know it’s real.


Q: Since you’ve arrived here, have you started to grow fond of anything specifically American that you didn’t know about back in your country?

JVF : Lacrosse, I will play Lacrosse. I didn’t know what it was back in Spain.
