We spent the week from 19th to 26th of May 2012 in Conil de la Frontera in southern Spain. This was a language trip, so we had four hours of tuition in the Academia Andaluza per day. The course turned out to be very different from our everyday learning in Germany, because our teacher could not speak German, and so we had to describe everything in Spanish without knowing the German translation. We therefore had a very practical experience of the Spanish language. The school had organized the entire trip, including our accommodation. We were housed in small two-bedroom apartments and had to prepare our own breakfast and usually dinner as well. Having to take care of ourselves was a lot of fun and a very good experience. A three course lunch was served every day in a restaurant which was usually delicious. Day trips to Cadiz and Seville were very well organized and were guided by Isabel, director of the Academia Andaluza, who informed us very extensively about the history and other interesting aspects of these cities. In addition, our guide Carlos took us to the beach a few times. This was a nice idea, and we especially enjoyed the beach volleyball games and the dips in the sea.
All in all it was a very nice trip and we were all quite sad when it was over, but I’m sure we will be back one day.
