2ND. CIEE ALCALÁ (SPAIN) SPRING 2013 NEWS LETTER.

Meeting with Spanish students from the University is always a highlight of our first week. January 16 was the “Spanish-CIEE students get-together” in the Cervecería EL PORTÓN. 7 Spaniards had our 9 students all to themselves, to talk, have something to drink, make plans to meet up another day, etc.

Our first CIEE meeting in February 6th, to talk about adapting to Alcalá and Culture Shock, was very interesting because we were able to see how the students feel and their differences that they have had when facing new experiences.

February started off in the Instituto Benjamin Franklin with the Friday visits and excursions: Segovia, El Escorial y Valle de Los Caídos, Cervantes House, Soccer Stadium “Vicente Calderón”, Naval Museum of Madrid, Barrio de las Letras… But also they had their personal excursions and field trips.

The relationships with their families are very good. Our students are one more member.

 February was also carnival month in Spain. Some students wore costumes to celebrate.

February 15-17th the CIEE group went to Extremadura (Cáceres, Mérida y Trujillo). We had a great time and it gave the students a chance to relax a bit two weekends before midterm exams.
