Students visit Murcia on Spanish exchange

spanishexvchangeLast month, Brockenhurst students studying Spanish embarked on a Spanish exchange to Torreaguerra near the city of Murcia.

The students had the opportunity to get a real flavour of Spanish culture by staying with host families and attending the local college.

One of the days was spent visiting the city of Cartagena in South East Spain. They were able to marvel at some of the famous historic sites as well as read poetry with two local poets, Carmen Conde and Oliver.

The students were able to appreciate the picturesque scenery around Alicante – they spent the days walking through fields of orange and lemon groves, visiting the local bakeries and getting to know one another.spanishexchange

By Monday, the first day at the college, all of the students had became good friends, having spent most of the weekend together.

Brockenhurst Spanish teacher, Hazel Ruck said: “Although the weather was not kind to us for the first time in eight years – the students still had a fantastic time on the exchange. Many of them have been invited back to stay over the summer to experience the sunshine!”
