Spanish Trip

July 14th, 2015

The group of Year 9s and 10s climbing the mountains overlooking Santander

Recently Ms Reid, Ms Welsby and Mr Russell took 22 languages pupils from Year 9 and 10 to Spain for a six day visit of the continental nation to gain a greater understanding of the country and its culture.

The group stayed in the mountains overlooking the city of Santander. Rather than reside in a hotel or lodge, the group stayed in a large house owned by Fernando and Merche who were their language teachers for the week. Fernando and Merche gave language lessons every morning to all of the pupils who were encouraged to talk in Spanish as much as possible during their visit.

After the lessons, each day the group travelled to the local area. Among the activities, the boys went fly foxing in the forests, visited Carbaceno Wildlife park, investigated pre-historic caves and also had some leisure time on the beach. Visiting the locals gave them the perfect opportunity to practice the Spanish they had learnt over the course of the year, as well as in the morning lessons.
