Our Language Partners & Caves of Nerja

Practicing our Spanish with locals

One of the activities that I think is most valuable for the students is their time spent with language partners. College-aged students are selected by our local leader to spend time with the kids with ECI. So far their language partners gave them a tour of Nerja on our first night, they had a beach activity a few nights ago, and Wednesday night the had a “tapas” activity. In Spain it’s customary to receive a “tapa” (small plate of food) with any type of beverage you order. So last night the girls got to experience a typical evening in Nerja for the Spaniards, and they went “tapeando” – bouncing around to different locations to have a soda and a tapa. 

Las Cuevas de Nerja

We visited “Las Cuevas de Nerja” yesterday, also known as the Caves of Nerja. Some boys who were playing in the area discovered them in 1959. As the story goes they lost their ball down one of the caves and when going to look for it, they discovered the underground caves. For years now, the caves have been a popular attraction. You can check out the link if you would like to see more pictures of the inside because we were not allowed to use flash while taking pictures. – Las Cuevas de Nerja

¡Hasta Pronto!
