News Cooking Up Ways to Learn Spanish 04.08.2021

Advanced level Spanish students at Collyer’s swapped their books and pens for a frying pan and potato peeler!

Spanish teacher Milagros Herguedas explained: “Learning Spanish or any foreign language is not only about the language, but learning about the culture and traditions, so the students had to follow recipes in Spanish and create two delicious types of potato omelette.”

Vice Principal (Pastoral) Andrea John said: “What a creative way to learn about Spanish culture! I must make sure I’m invited along when Milagros runs this particular practical exercise next year!”

Deputy Principal Steve Martell said: “We have an outstanding Spanish department and adding a practical cooking lesson into the mix was a great way to end the summer term.”

Milagros was delighted with the results: “After an excellent team effort, they produced truly delicious omelettes, fit to grace any Spanish dinner table! It was a really fun part of the lesson and I was delighted with how the students really threw themselves into it.”
