A Level Spanish trip to Seville

From the 9th to the 15th February, 15 A Level Spanish students travelled to Seville.

 

Year 12 students Ischia and Rosa have written this report:

Our Spanish undeniably improved, but the real takeaway of the Seville trip was the cultural adventures. Our enigmatic guide, Aurora, whizzed us through Seville’s gems, from the Plaza de España to the Real Alcázar. Every street had a story, often a romantic tragedy. We were fortunate to explore Córdoba which is steeped in religious history.

Although the oranges in Seville are too sour to eat, our trip was anything but. A trip to Seville is a must. if only to sample the churros, which are “¡para chuparse los dedos!”, The hospitality of the families we stayed with in Seville was incredible. They not only took us into their homes, fed us and made sure we didn't lose ourselves in the twisty Sevillian streets but also tested our ability to hold a conversation in Spanish. Although occasionally guilty of overfeeding us, our Spanish mother was lovely and the conversations we had with her ranged from Spanish festivals, her catholic upbringing and Sevilla FC, giving us a completely new perspective on Spanish life."
