MALMESBURY School students flew to Valencia for a week-long foreign language exchange.

Eighteen pupils and two teachers took part in an exchange with pupils in IES Cabanes, Spain.

The pupils were immersed in the language and culture of Spain, experiencing new foods and lifestyles.

During the week, pupils participated in a varied curriculum while trying to get to grips with the language.

They visited local festivals and took part in the local street dances called ‘jota’, and one pupil even became a fan of eating octopus.

The teachers also enjoyed teaching a few classes in their host school.
