The ShangHigh Times – Wednesday, December 7, 2011

From March 28 to April 8, 2012, high school Spanish teacher Señor Javier Castro and Chinese teacher Ms. Celia Shi will take a group of students to Spain for a tour. In previous years, Señor Castro has taken the students to a variety of different Spanish cities. Three years ago they went to Madrid, two years ago they went to Barcelona and Valencia, and last year they walked El Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage route.


This year, Señor Castro will take twenty students to the cities of San Sebastian and Bilbao and to rural Spain, as well as his hometown of Vitoria-Gasteiz. Recently, Vitoria-Gasteiz was given the title of  ¨European Green Capital¨ and students will get to see why it earned that title through visits to museums, exploring the city, and going on a hike in the rural area.


Everyone is welcome to join. Students do not have to be enrolled in a Spanish class. During the trip, students will stay with Spanish families in their homes so they can be more exposure to Spanish-speaking families and true Spanish culture.


The deadline for the sign-up was November 28, but if you are still interested, please see Señor Castro.
