What’s up, man? Our trip to Valencia was the best! We had the time of our lives! Our school was called Taronja School. Our teachers were Ana and María José and we worked really hard. Ana is very cute <3 We visited Peñiscola and the Miguelete and Santa Catalina in the Plaza de la Reina. We also visited the Plaza Redonda, the old university, the Fallas museum, the Cathedral of Valencia, the roman thermae, the Basilica de la Virgen (where we saw a lot of nuns) and the Mercado Central.
The paella class with Chef Nando was great and the paella was really good. We ate rabbit and seafood.Although we totally lost it because the people park their cars in the weirdest ways and they pass the traffic lights when it’s red, the trip was really wounderful.
Our week in Valencia was really great and has been an incredible experience. We especially liked the sunbathing, swimming in the sea and spending time together at the beach. Valencia is the perfect place to go shopping and there are a lot of different restaurants. The weather is always nice and it didn’t rain the whole week long. The city itself has a lot of history and pompous buildings. Our group really liked the history of Santa Catalina and the Miguelete.
Valencia is very big and there are lots of museums and modern buildings, like for example the Mercado Central, old cathedrals and the Ciudad de las Artes y Ciencas, which are also quite pompous. The Language School, Taronja, is a fantastic place to learn Spanish. The teachers are very friendly, funny and they really put an effort into their work. We learned a lot! The week in Valencia was great.

Valencia is a very big and lovely city. We liked the beach very much. The Language School Taronja is small, but the classes are quite different from those we knew before. There aren’t so many students in one group, which we found very helpful. In Valencia there are many interesting monuments and many shops to buy things. The teachers at school are very friendly and they show a lot of effort. Valencia is city full of culture and it has a very interesting history. The traditions of Spain are quite different from those i Austria. It was a good week 😀

The teachers are very friendly and funny. We didn’t like very much travelling to see all the monuments because it was very hot. The beach was very beautiful and we really liked it. The activities really tired us out, but the buildings we saw were really nice. The day we went to Peñiscola was very interesting and the view we had of the sea when we were in the castle was very beautiful.
We really liked Taronja Language School because we learned a lot and the schedule was quite different from what we knew before. The school has a lot of images and colors inside and we had a lot of fun.

The teachers at the school are very friendly and funny. We learned a lot of new words at school.
The people in Spain are always willing to help. They don’t know very well how to drive a car, because they park it, wherever they want. The spanish women are very beautiful and they wear really fine clothes.
Valencia is a very clean city, but it’s also very loud here. It has a lot of old and interesting monuments. The climate and the beaches it has are perfect. We really loved the food here.
