Chester College Spanish Camp

This camp is a great way to learn Spanish or english as people are always speaking in both languages. We also have 4 hour lessons in the morning were we can learn a lot. We have some fun activities afterwards and sometimes go on excursions as well. There even is a swimming pool, a football pitch and a basketball pitch in the college. At the end of the 4 week sessions there is a play in english and the Spanish narrators have to speak in Spanish to explain what is happening. It takes place in a very big theater and it is very fun !! This time we played Aladdin based on the new movie that went out with Will Smith. During the play, there is also dancing and singing and the song are beautiful. The end of the camp is always very sad and everyone was crying in the morning of the last day whilst singing the songs.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve racking moment was when everyone was leaving for the second week and everyone was crying. Since I was a 4 week camper, I saw people leave and new people arrive to replace them.

Chester College Spanish Camp

I loved the spanish course. It was a great experience and i believe other people should try it too. Santiago is a great place with plenty of fun things to do during the summer. We went on many excursions with the other kids in the english and we even went on some class trips with only the people from our class. We visited many beautiful places throughout Galicia. The spanish course in itself was quite good and my spanish greatly improved by the end of the month. The teachers in the camp are all very nice and are a lot of help. They provide us with pretty good living areas and the food is quite good too. This has been my fourth year doing the camp and i really enjoyed it. I made loads of great friends here and had a great time with them in the camp and the residence and i can't wait to see them all next year.

Summer in Santiago

I loved Santiago! I wanted to choose an area of Spain that was far away from all of the tourists in the Costa del Sol and that's exactly what I got. Santiago is such a beautiful city! The Spanish camp was awesome - the classes were really small so we had lots of help from the teacher and I improved loads over the month.
We also did lots of our lessons offsite - going to the local market to learn the names of the food an practicing ordering drinks for real in a cafe was lots of fun. At the site (Chester College) the Spanish camp was held at the same time as a big English camp for Spanish students, so I made lots of friends from Spain which was cool and it helped me with my Spanish as I could practice with them (some of them were my roommates too). At the end of the camp we all put on a big theater production to showcase our work which was fun, I think it helped to have something to work towards.
We went on about 3 trips a week - often to beaches or nice countryside. The beaches were so beautiful! Also I hate the extreme heat, and in Santiago it was a really nice temperature (about 25-30ºC) which was perfect for me. I would definitely recommend this camp. Oh and the food was delicious too!
PS - I liked it so much I decided to come back to do a year abroad at their international school :-)

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
At the end of the camp we did a the theatre performance I was a narrator and had to talk in Spanish in front of a crowd of about 100 people or more. I was so nervous! But I did it and afterwards I was really pleased that I had managed to overcome my fear :-)
