Dear Pilar and Neil,
Thank you so much for having to stay with you and your family in Revenga. He had a great time and his confidence in speaking Spanish has sky rocketed so much so that he was able to chat away in Spanish to the guy beside him on the plane home! He was also able to help out an elderly Spanish lady at the airport who couldn’t hear the announcements. It has been a wonderful experience for him and has been a great boost also to his general confidence. Thank you for looking after him so well and we are delighted that his interest in studying Spanish at university has been firmly established!
With kindest regards,
... is back home having had a brilliant time with you in Spain. Thank you for offering such great experience for her and I hope that her Spanish will have improved significantly.
