Visit of the Lyceé Bellepierre, March 2017

Last Sunday 12th March we welcomed 30 students and 3 teachers from the Lyceé Bellepierre of Reunion Island to Madrid.

We would like to thank the three teachers: Nathalie Champigneul, Eric Partula and Lineda Soundron for organising this linguistic and cultural trip to Madrid and for their confidence in our school TANDEM MADRID.

This year is our 35th anniversary and we are excited to continue teaching Spanish to students from different generations: We started with the parents and continue to welcome their children.

Our aim has always been and continues to be to promote the learning of Spanish with a humanistic approach, aimed at the whole person and oriented towards understanding and understanding between people from different countries and cultures.

The group of students between 15 and 18 years old from the Lyceé Bellepierre will combine their Spanish classes at TANDEM, from 9.30 to 13.00 every day, with cultural activities, always didactic and oriented to continue learning and practising Spanish outside the classroom and soaking up the Spanish culture.

Accommodation

The students from Reunion Island stayed in host families with half board, the best option for a complete immersion in the Spanish culture. They had dinner with their families every day, which gave them the opportunity to practice their Spanish and learn about our customs.

Our families are carefully selected. They have been working with TANDEM for an average of ten years and like having students of other nationalities in their home because they also learn from other cultures. It is a mutual enrichment.

Puerta del Sol and Madrid de los Austrias

Madrid’s Puerta del Sol, perhaps the capital’s best-known square, is also a favourite meeting point for visitors to the city. From there we walked to the so-called Madrid de los Austrias, a large monumental area with, among others, the Royal Palace and the Royal Theatre.
