In mid-March, approximately 55 of us went on a four day trip to Barcelona.
This trip was filled with exciting outings when we saw the incredible architecture of the city. We learnt a lot about the culture and history of Barcelona (some of it in Spanish).The trip was a great opportunity for us to practice our Spanish skills and to test the extent of our understanding.
One of the most memorable visits we made was to La Sagrada Familia, a beautiful Roman Catholic church originally designed by Antoni Gaudí in 1882, and still under construction today. The exterior of the church was covered in detailed carvings related to Jesus and the Bible. We also visited Casa Mila, another one of Gaudí’s designs, and Parc Guël.
The trip was a unique and fascinating experience, which we enjoyed immensely. It was very educational and we really feel as if our Spanish has improved. By talking to native Spanish speakers, our understanding of the language and the culture developed greatly.
