I liked the relaxed way of learning and the mixture of sports and teaching.

I like the language games and the sport and the bit of competition between us during the games. I don’t think there is anything better to be done it is a great camp!

I liked how it as a mix of sport and Spanish, so we got exercise and how we included a bit of Spanish in the sport session. I don’t think it could be better because I really enjoyed it. I liked how there was a canteen and vending machines.

I like the sport with the lesson together and you can learn while playing language games.

I loved the board games and just being able to speak Spanish without thinking I have to be perfect 🙂

I really liked the points system which pushed me to learn and was unique.

  • Things I liked

  • How we applied our learning to creating and learning sentences
  • The incentives for games/sweets
  • The mix of learning and fun!

I really like the class and the way things were ran”

Really educational, good class size, great teacher!

I really loved the board game because it was fun, but drilled in the words and phrases. I also really like the way it was explained to us and how many notes we took so I’ll be able to take them back to school!

Everything was fine. Teacher was good and class was a good length!

Thank you so much for teaching us! It was such a great experience 🙂

It was an amazing course that I enjoyed a lot. I would definitely take part in this course again!
