Learning outside the classroom


This week we have had the privilege to lead Spanish students from the prestigious Godolphin & Latymer school on a guided art visit in Spanish to the National Gallery. It was a fulfilling visit in which the Year 8 students impressed the guide with their motivation, drive to learn, and their observations of visual symbols in the works. The focus of the tour were the works of the Spanish painter Diego Velazquez. Prompted by questions in Spanish, the young learners were encouraged to express their ideas whilst putting their Spanish into gear. The use of places other than the classroom for [...]

La Noche de San Juan


La Noche de San Juan (St John's Eve), starting at sunset on 23rd June, is one of the most iconic and traditional celebrations in Spain. In many Spanish towns, bonfires are lit. Some people even jump over them for good luck! Parties are often organized at beaches, where firework displays usually take place. The fire and the water are essential purifying elements in this tradition. People write their concerns on a piece of paper and burn the paper in the bonfire, to symbolically destroy what is weighing them down. Then they dive or bathe in the sea, to spiritually cleanse themselves [...]

Learn Spanish like a child


It is a truth universally acknowledged, that children are naturally good at learning languages. Or is it? Maybe not. Polyglot Gabriel Wyner thinks this is just a myth. According to Wyner, “it is not fair to compare yourself to a child who has had thousands of hours of exposure to their mother tongue”. (Remember this when you have just started a 15-hour Inicial 1 course and don’t be too harsh on yourself!) During the last term I had the amazing opportunity of observing our Montessori Spanish lessons for children aged between 4 and 7 years old. Leaving scientific theories aside, I [...]

Spanish Literature Workshop


Last night we started our new series of workshops focused on learning Spanish through Literature. What a true delight it is to discover the best Literature in Spanish, whilst enjoying a glass of wine in a cosy classroom, while it’s cold and rainy outside! The opening workshop was dedicated to two masters of the 20th century Spanish Literature: Antonio Machado and Federico Garcia Lorca. We started by learning about the historical context of early 20th century Spain, and how it forged their personalities and subjects. Then we worked with a short dialogue from Lorca’s theatre piece “La Casa de Bernarda Alba”, [...]
