Day Seven -Martes/Tuesday

After another early start we headed for our last Spanish session at the university. We finished the course by looking at common irregular verbs and how to conjugate them, as well as giving presentations about how to best teach Spanish using stories.



As a thank you, we bought the course tutors, Carmen and Isabel, some beautiful orchids. They were very surprised and loved them. It was a lovely way to finish our last day at Barcelona University.



A quick lunch and then we had our first visit to Els Pins School. Mar was there to meet us and she gave Miss Kenny (another teacher on the trip from Court Farm School) and I a tour of the buildings and grounds. All the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and I’m very excited about being able to observe some of the lessons tomorrow. Mar also invited us both to join her and some of the other staff from Els Pins for some Basque tapas and a ‘Pub Quiz’ later this evening.


Next, we made our way down La Rambla De Catalyna and found a fantastic tapas bar where we stopped for some traditional ‘Torrija de Sant Teresa’ Santa Teresa’s infused crispy milk bread. It was delicious!


To finish the day, we traveled to La Zona Alta, an area in the hills full of beautiful houses. We traveled to the top of the hill and were rewarded with a magnificent view of the whole city. We enjoyed spotting different sights that we had visited in the glorious sunshine.

A quick stop at our accommodation and it’s back out again to meet Mar from Els Pins. I’m looking forward to being with a Spanish collogue that will be able to talk us through a tapas menu.
