This week may have been slightly shorter than usual but a lot of Spanish has still been learnt and a lot of friends have been made at the school! As it’s the ‘1 de Mayo’/’Día de los trabajadores’ bank holiday today, we had a our despedida (farewell party) on the Thursday instead of the Friday. We all met this morning in the school’s lounge area for refreshments, photos, a farewell gift from the school for each departing student, certificates and of course, lots of goodbyes.

Amongst those who are leaving today is the British intern who has been working and studying at La Herradura over the last four months. Click here to see her final diary entry. It’s been tough to say goodbye but as always, the arrival of new students is just around the corner and everyone in Uruguay will be able to enjoy the long bank-holiday weekend ahead!
