Spanish for the Over 50s
Two weeks in Nerja
The Spanish language course in Nerja was excellent – lots of conversation about topics which the five of us found interesting (e.g. different customs and habits of the Swiss, Germans, Spanish with me representing the UK) and which our teacher Marion also learnt from – in particular the process of making compost which seems rare in Spanish households.
