Third and Fourth Form pupils studying Spanish recently embarked on a cultural adventure to Barcelona, where they explored this fabulous city steeped in culture whilst honing their linguistic skills learnt in the classroom.

First stop, was a trip to La Sagrada Familia, a basilica designed by Antoni Gaudí, with an insightful guided tour. No time to rest, however, as pupils were quickly put to work completing their ‘Barcelona booklets’ – answering GCSE-style comprehension questions testing their newly learnt cultural knowledge. Pupils then visited The Family Language School, where they practised their general conversation skills in real-life situations by interviewing members of the public. Other highlights of the trip included a visit to Gaudí’s beautiful Park Güell and a steep ascent to the Bunkers del Carmel, which rewarded the group with panoramic views of Barcelona from the Spanish Civil War bunkers.
