Paella and Salsa strengthen students Spanish speaking skills

Restaurant visit boosts language learning

A visit to La Tasca Spanish restaurant in Manchester city centre was a great opportunity for students from the Radclyffe School to practise their language skills.

Using a giant pan, a paelleras, students got to cook their own paella. As they cooked they had to describe in Spanish all the ingredients they were using. As they ordered their meals they used their spoken Spanish skills.

While they waited for their meals, a Salsa Dance workshop gave the young people a further entertaining taste of Spanish culture, with a professional dance teacher putting them through their paces.

And once they had eaten the students enjoyed a careers roadshow on the many different jobs in which foreign languages can be used.

Head of Modern Foreign Languages Jo Parkes said, “The day was a fantastic opportunity for our students to use their Spanish skills in a real life context. The all thoroughly enjoyed the day. Bailemos!”
