Spanish Trip to Bilbao
16 March 2011
On Thursday 17th February a group of 6 boys travelled to Bilbao in Northern Spain for four days. During their stay the boys visited the world-famous Guggenheim Museum; San Mamés, the Athletic Bilbao football stadium; the ‘Mercado de La Ribera’ in the Old Quarter; saw a professional game of Pelota; went to the cinema to watch a film in Spanish (without subtitles!) and had a one-to-one conversation class with a native speaker. The boys were also lucky enough to be invited to dine in a traditional ‘Txoko’, a private members-owned dining club. They had the opportunity to practise their Spanish for real whilst shopping, enjoying tapas and ordering food in restaurants. All boys thoroughly enjoyed the experience and returned to school with a greater degree of confidence in their spoken Spanish.
