The students of the Spanish Program for Chinese students in Buenos Aires made an educational visit to the Teatro Colón.
At CUI we believe that learning Spanish in Buenos Aires is much more than learning a language. It is absorbing the local culture and expanding your understanding of the language. That is why CUI’s Spanish programs include cultural activities in Buenos Aires. They are specially selected and planned according to the interests and levels of Spanish of the students. The goal is not only to practice and use the Spanish language outside the classroom in a more fun and relaxed environment. It’s also about learning more about Buenos Aires culture.
On this occasion the place of interest was the emblematic Teatro Colón. The visit took place in the same week it was chosen as the most important opera theater in the world. “A true monument of theatrical, lyrical and acoustic art, undoubtedly the best of all time” (Source: https://bit.ly/2yO3Cwp).
Before the guided tour, students and teachers went to a restaurant. It was an excellent moment to encourage the integration and relationship between students from different groups, while practicing vocabulary about food, drinks, restaurant orders and more. The wait for the guided tour was worth it. The students and teachers did not waste time and took the opportunity to visit the library and learn a little more about the theater. There, they came into contact with the vocabulary related to the photographic material exhibited, featuring different theatrical and musical plays. They also had the opportunity to witness a small fragment of the Buenos Aires Philharmonic‘s essay.
The students returned super excited, with much to tell about the architecture, music and photos of the theater.
