Students practise speaking Spanish on visit to Barcelona

Year 10 and 11 students have enjoyed a fantastic cultural experience in Barcelona as part of their GCSE Spanish studies. The trip took place from Friday 18th October to Monday 21st October, 2019.

The group of 38 students were aiming to practice and improve their use of the Spanish language as well as enjoy several famous cultural and geographical sites.

Highlights included a visit to Tarragona and its amphitheatre, the Nou Camp (home of Barcelona FC), the Poble Espanyol museum, the PortAventura theme park and the Olympic Stadium. Students also took a cable car ride to Montjuic Castle. Students enjoyed free time in Salou where they were staying.

Students were accompanied by Ms Matias, Mr Karimi, Mr Hawkins, Mrs McLoughlin and Mrs Edwards.

Trip leader Ms Matias said, “We had a fabulous trip to Barcelona with the students all practising their GCSE Spanish on several occasions. I was so impressed with their positivity and their interest in all the sites visited. Students particularly enjoyed the tapas-tasting evening and a group competition where they had to speak Spanish in order to buy, find and research numerous items such as local produce and souvenirs.”
