Spanish Immersion Day
On two Saturdays, the 5th and the 12th of March, I attended a language immersion day at Westminster University for Spanish. It was really scary at first because as well as not knowing anyone there, it turned out I was the only one from Sutton, but it was a truly eye-opening experience.
On the first day, we mainly did introductions and talked about ourselves, but we also had discussions about what we thought would happen in the future. This was an opportunity to practise many tenses, and improve our overall vocabulary. The most interesting exercise was having to pretend we were at a party, talk to people and then write down what we’d found out about them. I made some quite interesting friends.
On the second day, we learnt about past tenses and did more writing than speaking and listening. We wrote some biographies and the other people had to guess who the people were. The most interesting exercise of the day was listening to a song and having to fill in the blanks on the worksheet with the missing words. It was very funny to hear us try and sing it afterwards!
For the most part, it was a fascinating, exciting and educative experience. I would thoroughly encourage anyone who is interested in languages to attend.
¡Lo pasé bien!
