Twenty AS level Spanish students visited Spain over the Easter holidays, in order to give them the opportunity to use and practise their Spanish in a real environment.
The group, led by Spanish teacher Chary Gonzales-Latham, visited Salamanca in north-western Spain and stayed with host families. They were able to practise their Spanish in a number of different contexts and also had Spanish lessons whilst they were there.
The visitors were also provided with many opportunities to immerse themselves in Spanish culture, and enjoy themselves at the same time. They attended flamenco classes, visited the local Cathedral and learned how to cook tapas.
David Morley, one of the students on the trip, said, “I thought it was an amazing experience. I enjoyed giving everything a go and really tried to push myself. I know that this trip has helped my Spanish skills enormously.”
