Sala­manca 2014

sal200What a tremen­dously fan­tas­tic and busy week we had in Salamanca!

Sat 18th Octo­ber 32 year 10 GCSE Span­ish stu­dents set off for Gatwick for a week of Span­ish lessons and activ­i­ties in the cos­mopoli­tan city of Sala­manca in main­land Spain. Stu­dents com­pleted an inten­sive Lan­guage course at Acad­e­mia ISLA, attend­ing 4 hours of lessons a day and we are delighted that the Isla teach­ers praised our stu­dents for being so hard work­ing, enthu­si­as­tic and mak­ing great progress through­out the week. Every after­noon was filled with cul­tural activ­i­ties and we thor­oughly enjoyed our city visit, climb­ing the cathe­dral tower a photo rally and a trea­sure hunt for which they inter­viewed mem­bers of the pub­lic in Span­ish! Our evenings were also filled with fun and food! Stu­dents made the most of the oppor­tu­nity to eat Paella in a typ­i­cal Span­ish restau­rant and on another night tasted dif­fer­ent local tapas. We also danced Salsa and sang Karaoke! The stu­dents were bril­liant all week and thor­oughly enjoyed them­selves. We are very proud of them all.
