Ever wondered what we do on our Spanish, sangria and speed-friending nights?
This blog will give you an insight into the night, including what we do, what happens and who you will meet!
6.30pm: Arrive at the pub and enjoy a glass of sangria
The pub is a lovely, cosy pub located in the heart of Islington. Head to the top floor where you will find the flood of orange Stripey Spanish t-shirts. The team will welcome you and offer you a glass of sangria or a cold drink if you prefer. You can also meet everyone else you will be spending the evening with.
7:00pm: Let’s get learning!
7.00pm marks the start of the evening. Our fantastic qualified teachers will talk you through all the Spanish lingo, including key questions, vocabulary and reaction you can use.
‘¿Como te llamas?’ What’s your name?
‘¿En qué trabajas?’ What’s your job?
‘¿De dónde eres?’ Where are you from?
7:30pm: Waving it wildly
This is the first game of the evening and will help you recognise what you’ve just learnt in a conversation. We give you about 3 key phrases on a piece of paper and when you hear it, you wave it wildly!
Now its time to put all that great vocabulary to the test and actually speak it in a conversation. This part can seem intimidating, but with constant feedback from our teachers you will soon be speaking Spanish like a pro. You start off in pairs where you have 2 minutes to introduce yourself. We then swap another 4 times so by the end you can get the key questions perfected.
[ADD SOME REACTIONS]
8.00pm: Group speed-friending
You’ve perfected talking to another person but what happens when you get into groups? Its slightly more challenging and helps you to learn it in a group setting and socialise with the people you’ve already met.
8.10pm: raffle time
This is a great opportunity to win some fantastic prizes, including £100 off our 10 week course.
After all your hard work we get to share some tapas and get to know each other. It gives you the opportunity to ask our teachers and past student volunteers any questions you have.
9.00pm: Home time
Say goodbye to your new friends and finish your last bit of sangria as its time to go home after a great night of learning Spanish.
