Four of the students of grade 10 and 12 from Pathways School Gurgaon visited the Instituto Cervantes in New Delhi for attending a trivia quiz on Spain. The quiz, titled Hola España, was attended by several schools from Delhi NCR, and was tested in pairs. The questions in the quiz were innovative and the answers required a deep understanding of the Spanish culture.
As participants in the quiz, my peer and I realized sometime mid-way that we were severely underprepared! Although we didn’t qualify into the second round, the experience was worthwhile the disappointment of not winning. Making new friends and finding funny answers to questions we had no idea about made the quiz incredibly fun, as well as finally learning the answers to the tricky questions!
The overall visit to Instituto Cervantes in New Delhi, from school was an amazing experience, to be visiting a haven for Spanish learners. I was also thoroughly inspired to take up a course in the institute sometime later.
Quiro visitar la instituto otra vez! Despues de la competencia, quiero viajar a España. Adios… Convenco mi familia de viajar a España.
