Student tours Spain, experiences new culture

As part of an ongoing assignment in the Spanish III class, students will write bilingual articles utilizing the language skills they build over the course of a year.

The articles will be published every month, highlighting each students’ interests. The first installment is written by sophomore Justin Houts.

During the summer of 2013, I had the privilege of visiting Barcelona, Spain. During my visit I had a wonderful experience getting to learn more about Spain and the Spanish culture. It was a great time for me personally to get to experience what I have been learning about for three years in Spanish class.

Durante mi viaje a Espana, tuve el privilegio de visitar muchos lugares historicos. Fui a muchas iglesias antiguas. Fue muy interesante porque antes de mi viaje, yo solo habia leido sobre lugares como estos.

Tambien, durante mi viaje, fui a muchos museos, especialmente museos de arte. Tenian muchas pinturas bonitas y esculturas de artistas famosos.

Tambien pudimos ver ruias romanas. Tambien me encanto caminar en las callas. Habia muchas verduras y tiendas en el centro de la cuidad. Me diverti caminado por los calles.

La comida de Espana es deliciosa. Las comidas populares son paella, muchas tapas, y pan dulce. Durante mi viaje, tuve el privilegio de probar muchas comidas nuevas. Mi comida favorita de Espana es la paella.

Normamlente, las personas de Espana no llevan el mismo tipo de ropa que las personas en Estados Unidos. Los hombres en Espana llevan zapatos diferentes que en EE.UU. Y las senoritas llevan muchas faltas, pero no muchos jeans o pantalones que como en EE.UU.
La cultura de Espana es muy relajada. Las personas duermen una siesta, que es oarte de sus tres horas de almuerzo. Las personas caminan lento en las calles, no rapidamente.

La familia es muy importante para las personas de Espana. Muchos personas viven con sus padres hasta que tienen treinta anos. Las familias siempre comen el desayuno, el almuerzo, y la cena juntos.

Pase un tiempo muy bueno en Espana, y espero poder visitarla otro vez pronto.

To do a recap of what I just said in English, when I travelled to Spain I visited many different historical sites. I saw museums, old churches and ruins. It was cool to see places I had only ever seen in pictures or on T.V. Also, it was great to experience the culture of Spain. Food, clothes and lifestyle are all different from the U.S.

Family is very important to them. They eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together every day. In fact, many people live with their parents until they are in their thirties.

The people of Spain are very relaxed. They walk the streets pretty slowly and they have this thing called ciesta. They take a nap as part of their three hour lunch. It is all very chill there.
