The Language Support Service (SAPLI) of the European University of the Atlantic organised a treasure hunt on the university campus in which more than eighty French students from the Grande École d’Ingenieurs (ESEO) who are studying this second semester at UNEATLANTICO took part.
This activity has been organised by the students and heads of SAPLI, Álvaro de la Granja and Irene Pérez with the help of the doctor and director of the degrees in Translation and Interpreting and Applied Languages, Araceli Alonso and the lecturers Rubén Pérez and Isabel Sánchez.
“Taking advantage of the fact that ESEO students are still at the University, we thought it was a good opportunity for them to live a different experience, it’s a fun way to practice Spanish outside the classroom,” said Irene Pérez.
In this way, the French students were divided into groups to find different clues. Several envelopes were placed around the university campus and each envelope contained a word, from which they had to construct a meaningful sentence.
The last part of this activity was applied in Spanish to sports and students had to answer certain questions correctly in order to shoot a basket and score points.
“Applying Spanish from a different perspective is something useful so that they don’t focus on using it only in a classroom. In addition, this activity allows them to interact with the culture and encourage them to talk to each other,” said Álvaro de la Granja.
