albufera-4Very enjoyable week learning Spanish and Spanish cooking. Staff were friendly and helpful. As a beginner with no Spanish whatsoever, the teachers unsured you do not get left behind. I learned a huge amount of words and verbs and have more confidence in everyday exchanges in the real world and I can read and understand a lot more in the streets around me. The cooking was also very good. The cook gave the lessons in Spanish but also translated in English. We cooked many Spanish dishes but especially local Valencia food. We got a very good insight into local Spanish culture and food practices, the cooking was very hands on and we were allowed to «get our hands dirty» with plenty of practice. Plus we got to eat some wonderful dishes cooked by our professional chef (very tasty!!! Mucho gusto!!!). We also got to see Albufera where the rice grows locally and visited the mill to see the rice-processing.
Great week, highly recommend it.
