First Short-term exchange of groups of pupils in Seville, Spain, 05-11 March 2018
05-11 March 2018, the First Transnational Learning, Teaching and Training Meeting took place at the Colegio Privado Concertado Arboleda in Seville, Spain.
Twenty four students from the three partner countries (Greece, Italy and Netherlands) were hosted by their Spanish partners.
Students having already met their Spanish partners through Instagram and the Facebook close page of the project, experienced the hospitality of the particularly affectionate Spanish families and enjoyed their Spanish classmates’ lifestyle during the morning activities and during the afternoon meetings where they were touring in places of entertainment of the Seville youth. They also learned through mixed group activities with their Italian and Dutch classmates. Their impressions of acquaintance were particularly positive. The preparation of the Spanish colleagues was excellent and the activities related to sustainable tourism and entrepreneurship, very interesting for our students. They were taught flamenco by five Spanish pupils and the next day they performed a flashmob in a central square of Seville. They visited the city’s attractions, the cathedral at the historic center and the Arabic Alcazar palace. They also enjoyed a viable tourism experience by riding bicycles on the banks of the Guadalquivir River and exploring the neighborhoods of the city. Particularly impressive was the visit to the Doniana National Park, south of Seville. On the last day, a party was given at the school with the pupils of the three countries and the host families. Families brought at school food they had prepared for us.
