Last summer, three of our students, Alba Lorenzo, Patricia Moreiras and Sira Prieto, were selected to take part in one of the summer language camp that Xunta de Galicia organizes every year. They really enjoyed the experience and I asked them to write a small composition explaining how they lived it.
Here's Sira's account of those days:
Last summer I went to an English Camp with Alba and Patri, two friends.
My experience was great and very funny! The best was to meet a log of people and to learn English with Canadian and British teachers.We were in a University School in Vigo for twelve days.
Our daily routine was: in the mornings we had English class. We had a book to do exercises and we wrote our diary each day. Also we spoke with the teachers, who were young, very friendly and funny.
In the afternoons, we did sports, crafts and theater classes. We played American football, basket, volleyball and we ran with obstacles in the forest. Some crafts we made were dreamcatchers, masks and flags.
In the theater class we practised dancing, talking and we did juggling!!
At nights, we had a lot of activities: the talent show, the Hawaian party, the final party, many games and shows, the horror night...and we saw films too.
In the talent show and Hawaian party, I danced with some friends and i got the jitters because, in front of me, there were all the camp participants.
Some days, we had excursions. We went to Cíes Islands, Pontevedra, Santiago and Vigo.
The last day we cried so we promised to go back to this camp next summer.
Thank you Sira for sharing your experience!!!
