DAY 4

Continuing our class from the previous day, we proceed further on our lessons in Spanish.

Our tour for the afternoon is fixed for the new Bioparc Valencia, which opened its doors in 2008. This innovative zoo, in which the barriers are practically invisible and the animals feel right at home, covers some 80,000 square meters and is located in the Parque de Cabecera within the former Turia Riverbed. Contrary to traditional zoos, this park has the unique feature of bringing the visitor totally into the habitat of the animals. This is the known as the reverse zoo concept. The Bioparc’s goal is to promote respect for animals and make the general public aware of importance of protecting the environment through a commitment to education and the preservation of the animals. Leopard, lemurs, hyenas, lions, giraffes, gorillas, rhinoceroses, hippopotamuses, porcupines, ostriches, elephants, otters… all coexist in this zoological world. However, Bioparc is not limited to Africa, since the plan is to expand it over the next few years by 20,000 meters in order to dedicate a portion to Southeast Asia and South America.

DAY 5

 

The morning is dedicated to our Spanish classes which are followed by a delicious lunch

In the afternoon, prepare for Paella cooking class & tasting. Valencia cuisine has a Mediterranean flavour, and is known for both the quality of the local ingredients and the simplicity with which they are cooked. With so many great local dishes to choose from, Paella is undoubtedly Valencia´s most well known dish, though its international recognition have turned it more into a Spanish icon rather than a regional specialty. Once you are prepared, you just need all ingredients to get started, a cup of fun, a dash of enthusiasm, follow the tips from the professionals and of course appetite!

DAY 6

Post breakfast, head to the institute for your last class where you recap all that has been taught and a lovely farewell awaits you.

Post this session, we head to tour the Valencia Football Club. This tour is a great opportunity to enjoy the history of our Valencia Football Club and feel like a professional footballer. Visit the VIP gallery, the press room, the dressing room and of course the trophies collection. As the most popular sport in Spain, you will be likely surprised by the excitement that comes as you walk down the player’s tunnel before stepping on stadium´s turf. Next, take a seat on the bench to take in the panoramic view of Spain´s oldest stadium with more than 90 years of history behind.
