In the videos teachers of the school give explanations about the Spanish language on all levels: grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Thus everyone can take the chance to learn some of the basic rules of this interesting language – in a modern and entertaining way.
The project was officially presented at a celebration organized by the school, where the students and teachers enjoyed a great time full of music, eating Paella and talking in the same language: Spanish. The highlight of the event was the publication of the first video tutorial on the social network YouTube. The next two are ready to be released at the end of June and in the middle of July, respectively.
