Some of our Transition Year and 5th year students had the amazing opportunity of going to Spain for seven days, immersing themselves in the language and culture and staying with host families. This is what one of the students had to say about it.
The Spanish Intercambio for 2019 was a huge success, with positive reviews from all around. The exchange worked wonders for our Spanish and really immersed us in the culture. We visited many important historical landmarks, art and history museums and took part in lots of activities such as a city-wide treasure hunt in Ciudad Real and the longest urban zipline in Europe when we visited Toledo. We were constantly speaking Spanish, whether it was in class or in the local tapas bars in Ciudad Real. We made lifelong friends with our host families and exchange partners, and it really helped to have that connection. All in all, it was an excellent trip, and highly recommended by all who took part.
