It seems that Orihuela has been successful in organising English sessions for Spanish children during their summer holiday. In collaboration with the local residents at Entrenaranjos, 106 children have engaged in activities which mean that they have had to practice their spoken English.
It hasn’t all been all work and no play though because the learning sessions have been complemented by the children practising golf and bowling at Vistabella Golf Club and this last week they put on a show for their parents and friends.
The scheme that Aurelio tried to organise for Bigastro faltered when only four children signed up to take part in sessions with British residents from Villas Andrea. In light of the success of the scheme in Orihuela, we need to take lessons in how best to organise our scheme for next year.
