My experience in Barcelona

Upon finding out I was going to Barcelona for the SWITCH project, I was, to say the least, ecstatic! An experience I was not going to miss. Especially having lived in England for 8 years and having my classmates ask me how many times I’d been to Spain…for my reply to be zero.

I was really eager to tell the students over there all about the SWITCH project that I had been part of this year. There was me, two other students and a group of teachers that went to give and receive insight on teaching and learning in both Halesowen and Santa Coloma. Continue reading “My trip to Santa Colo”
