language + culture, spring 2017, newsletter i


It has been almost a month since Language and Culture Arts students arrived to Barcelona! They have been very busy with their classes, getting to know the city and participating in a lot of cultural events such cooking classes, gym classes, day trips, or the intercambio (language exchange event).

These are some of the must-do while studying in Barcelona:

Start cooking Mediterranean Food

Paella, Spanish omelet, pan con tomate, vegetables with romesco sauce,  and crema catalana (the local version of crème brulee) are the dishes students learned how to cook at their Cook and Taste workshop. The class also emphasizes on learning about the Mediterranean diet, local fresh food, and how to cook it. Students had a great time and learned how to master a complete Spanish meal.
