During half term, our Spanish department escaped Storm Dennis to visit warmer climes in sunny Seville. Proclaimed to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, this picturesque metropolis also happens to be the home town of Spanish teacher, Mr Sanchez.
It was Mr Nicholson and Mr Sanchez who were lucky enough to accompany 13 boys on the five-day trip. In the mornings, the boys enjoyed Spanish lessons at one of the best language academies in Spain, where they received the equivalent of half a term of Spanish lessons in just four days.
After lunch (around 4pm in Spanish time) each day, the group explored the city. On Monday, they enjoyed a guided walk around Seville’s city centre, one of the largest in Europe. Tuesday was dedicated to a visit to the Cathedral and the Giralda, the world’s largest gothic cathedral and Seville’s most recognisable landmark.
Wednesday saw the boys spending an afternoon in the museum of Flamenco, and being quite impressed by the impactful live performance. Finally on Thursday, the boys visited the Alcazar, a remarkable 13th century Royal Palace, the oldest one still in use by a Royal Family in Europe.
Thanks to the multi-talented Mr Sanchez, you can enjoy a few minutes of the Seville trip right here.
