Interactive workshop to get familiar with some of the most typical Spanish dishes. During the workshop, the students will prepare a few dishes in groups of 3 or 4. Also, the student will learn about the origins of these dishes. The workshop will be organised in the form of a Masterchef contest, where they will have to accomplish several language and culture-related activities.
The students will have to battle in groups by accomplishing tasks in the center of Amsterdam. In order to do so with success, they will have to communicate in Spanish(reading, writing, and speaking). The activities will be related to the different places the treasure hunt wil lead them to.
During the activity the students will communicate with Spanish persons that they will encounter on their way and they will use also the Instagram application.
The workshop starts with a game where students compete in teams about their knowledge on typical dances from Spain and South America, with special emphasis on Cuba and salsa music. The best team gets a price! After, they will learn the basic steps of salsa with a professional teacher from Cuba.
Level: These workshops are ideal for groups who have been learning Spanish for at least one year. Eventually, the workshop can be adjusted depending on other levels.
Duration: 1,5h-3h (depending on the workshop)
