Why to make a School Trip to Spain
Thinking about making an educational trip to Spain? Here’s five reasons why every Spanish class should give it a go at some point:
It improves Spanish skills
El Puerto de Santa Maria is simply the perfect place to learn Spanish, as the population is entirely Spanish, and even the tourists are mostly from other parts of Spain. This means there are countless opportunities to practise speaking to locals, in cafés, restaurants and shops. Plus, with full Spanish immersion at Spark itself, you’ll be surprised how much your skills improve.
It aids personal development
Travelling to another country can be rewarding in ways that may not be immediately apparent. Whether a student or teacher, child or adult, it increases your independence, changes your view on the world and makes you a more mature person.
It increases cultural awareness
With Brexit on its way, it has never been more important for young people to experience 21st century Europe in all its glory. Having the chance to converse with Spaniards and experience the food, drink, festivals, customs, music, lifestyle and language of another culture can be enormously beneficial to a student’s understanding of the world and the part they play within it.
It helps bonding between students
It’s one thing studying alongside each other in the classroom, it’s another thing being together in a foreign country, experiencing new and exciting places and learning a language that’s spoken all around you. Going on a trip to abroad together can strengthen students’ friendships and build new ones.
With five beaches and 300 days of sunshine per year, El Puerto is the perfect spot for a holiday — and that’s not including the ice cream parlours, tapas bars, cinema, and dozens of interesting towns nearby, just waiting to be discovered. A school trip doesn’t have to be all work and no play, and at Spark, it won’t be!
