Santiago Trip 2017
Hear what the students thought about their trip to Santiago in October half term.
"The Santiago Study trip was a non-stop stream of fun activities helping all of us improve our Spanish; whether we were having our morning lessons, talking to people in the town, or making friends with the football club and school we met. The teachers at the Academia Iria Flavia, made sure to help us improve our Spanish in creative ways, letting us make posters and our own festivals to practise and understand the topics we were studying. I could see the improvement in my Spanish during the week, being able to speak more clearly when we would return to our host families. We also had some free time to eat churros and shop in the evenings, experiencing the beauty that is Santiago."

"Santiago was indeed one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited with amazing food, incredible history, beautiful gothic architecture and lovely people. One of the highlights of the trip was walking to the Spanish Academy most mornings through the empty, cobbled streets of the old town, as the mist still lay on the Plaza de Obradoiro and the sun was just touching the spires of the cathedral, topped off with a stop at our favourite bakery."
