Memorable Moments in MadridIn September pupils from the Royal Alexandra and Albert School became pupils for 5 days in Spain’s Real Colegio Alfonso XII which is housed in a UNESCO World Heritage building near Madrid. The visit, organised by language teacher Rosa Mohammed Ali took place on 13-17 September as part of their GCSE Spanish course.
As well as staying in the impressive building, the pupils had two hours of Spanish lessons each day at the school. Their itinerary included visits to the Real Madrid stadium, historic Segovia, Las Ventas bullring and a local village to sample traditional tapas. They also attended a flamenco show and even had a flamenco dancing lesson.
Miss Ali commented “We received a very warm welcome from the Spanish people and had some memorable experiences during our visit. The students enjoyed absorbing the language and the culture and gained an insight into Spanish life. We hope to continue running this trip in future to give other students an opportunity to enjoy this wonderful experience.”
