I had a phone call yesterday from Aurelio about the plan for us to accommodate Spanish children during July and help them practice their English. As I suspected from a previous conversation, interest in the scheme has been poor- there were only four takers.
To be honest I was not surprised. If I was a young Spaniard on my summer holiday faced with the choice of visiting British pensioners two or three times a week to practice my English or going to the beach with my friends, I would choose the beach.
Aurelio has therefore decided to scrap the scheme for this year and maybe revisit it again next year.
