Cobham Free School to Jaén, 20th – 25th October 2017


Combination Languages last trip of 2017 was also a first as we welcomed a group of 30 students from Cobham Free School for the first time to Jaén.  The group met their pen pals from IES Az Zait at a Fun Day kindly hosted by Software del Sol.  They took part in a range of activities such as Padal, Table Football and Mini Golf in mixed bilingual teams and this was a great way to break the ice!  The experience continued with further activities in the school, a Scavenger Hunt in Jaén, an insightful visit to the Alhambra Palace in Granada, a tasty tapas evening and a visit to el Castillo de Santa Catalina and the Arab Baths.  The 6-day trip was rounded off by the last night disco where students relaxed and had fun with their new International friends, before heading off to Madrid the next day for a tour before travelling home.
