The second years who study Spanish had a talk by the Education Adviser from the Spanish Embassy in Ireland. He talked about different aspects of Spanish culture such as food, literature, history as well as discussing some facts about the Spanish economy. At the end of the talk the students had a quiz in groups to test their understanding.
The talk was greatly enjoyed by students. Here is a picture of the proud winners with their diplomas. ¡Enhorabuena chicos!
