Discovering Spanish Culture

 - A trip to Madrid!


10 Merchants’ students enjoyed a busy weekend in Madrid that started with a late evening indulgence in some typical chocolate and churros and ended in a mad dash for the metro in a rainstorm.

In between the students saw the city sights, tried their best at rowing and completed several Spanish language and culture tasks around the city market el rastro, the Reina Sofia modern art gallery and the city centre.

The highlight had to be the flamenco and tapas evening where our students showed their openness to new experiences and flavours, although the olives went down like a lead balloon.

As always Merchants’ students made us proud.
