Half Term Salamanca Trip
A group of Year 10 & 11s headed to Salamanca at half term for a five day trip, keen to brush up their Spanish language skills.
Girls stayed in pairs or threes with Spanish families during the stay to maximise Spanish speaking opportunities, having breakfast, lunch and dinner as part of their homestays.
The group was split into three and spent the mornings at the ISLA Language School where they were taught by Spanish native speakers, focusing particularly on grammar and vocabulary relevant to the IGCSE.
On the first afternoon, the girls were given a guided walking tour around the beautiful ancient university town followed by a wonderful night stroll around the Plaza Mayor the next evening, which inspired some excellent entries in our photo competition.
Spanish food was a definite highlight of the week with a tour of the Central Market, a Spanish cookery lesson and of course, chocolate con churros all featuring. In the evenings, girls were also given the opportunity to take part in karaoke and dance lessons.
Thank you to the MFL Department for organising a great trip!
