Small get together

Friday night Josh (another intern at Tia Tula) organized our own intercambio activity. At 9/10 o clock we got together in his apartment with students from the Spanish and ELE courses.

ELE courses are for professors (whether native or non-native Spanish speakers) who want to improve their Spanish and their teaching skills.

Intercambios are activities involving a mutual exchange of knowledge. Normally an intercambio exists of speaking Spanish half of the time and the other half of the time the conversation will be in English.

However in this case we had the chance to practice Spanish with the ELE students all the time, in the case that they are not here to learn English. At the beginning it was a little awkward, but soon the students were mixed and trying to keep the conversation up in Spanish. This was a perfect opportunity to practice Spanish in a pleasant and natural way, in combination with homemade Sangria. We finished the night in the centre.
