CIEE ALCALÁ-SPRING 2014: 3rd. NEWSLETTER (MARCH 2014).
Hi from ALCALÁ DE HENARES. Welcome Spring!!!!!!! Welcome CIEE Alcalá difference!!!!
The two CIEE students who attend the course “Spanish for Health Care professionals” started their internship the month of February at “Hospital Universitario Príncipe de Asturias” in Alcalá de Henares.
We had our first three day trip with the CIEE group (February 21, 22 and 23rd) to Seville, where we visited the Royal Castles of Seville, the Cathedral with its tower, we walked through the María Luisa Park and the Spain Square. Ángel de Quinta (CIEE Seville professor) helped us two days. Once we got to Seville and checked into our hotel, the students were given two hours to free time to relax and eat their picnics that their host families had packed them for Friday lunch and dinner. There was a big park, Jardines de Murillo, across the street from the hotel so they all took their picnics and ate in the park. The weather was perfect. So, we had a long walking tour, Triana included.
Our CIEE SPRING 2014 students enjoy travelling. IBF field trips are free and a very good oppotunity to know different areas aroun Alcalá de Henares. On February 19th some of our students went to Museo Naval in Madrid with IBF, and on Friday February 28th 8 of our students went to Toledo with IBF as well. And on March 7th, our students went to El Escorial –Valle de los Caídos.
On March 15th, 7 of our students went to Morocco for themselves. It was easy. Everything is easy from Alcalá de Henares in terms of public transportation, because Alcalá is in the middle of Spain. They enjoyed a lot the African experience.
On March 18th the students had a field trip to MAHOU factory for their course “Globalization and the Spanish Economy” with IBF. At the end of the visit, they could tasted different kind of beers and eat “tapas”. The students’ behaviour was good and appropriate, as we could imagine before. And on March 21st some students are going to Cuenca with IBF and their course “History of Spanish Art”. They do not stop!!!!!!
Next March 28-29-30 we are going to have our second CIEE ALCALÁ FIELD TRIP to VALENCIA, the land of PAELLA and HORCHATA. So, stay tune!!!!! And, please, take a look at other posts here.
