Learning a language is full of random factors which can both ruin or boost our learning process in a highly significant way. Depending on our approach and interests on the target culture we can be easily affected and our concerns may vary.
This is the case of some foreign people that simply want to approach the culture at the begining, but most of them end up learning the language without effort just by their love towards the culture, lifestyle and customes of a country like Spain.
Learning Spanish in Seville is something that some people look for or they just get embebded by their experiences here. As we have referred previously, it’s very important to mantain a balance between language learning and culture acquisition. Something that can be easily done with our guidance. Enjoying the culture boosts our motivation and lows our anxiety when learning.
This week we had a nice slow traveller’s visit to the beautiful and ancient town of Ayamonte. It’s located in the southern border with Portugal and it’s one of the best places to get in tune with the culture by just walking its streets, visiting the food market, which is a very lively space where you can find a wide variety of products from Huelva’s Province.
We started by getting lost among it’s crooked old white streets spending our time watching the beautiful patios, plants, bougainvilleas, fountains and lemon-trees. The contrasts that this town offers are strong as you go down the streets from the top of a mountain to finish down at the fisheries and docks settled in the Guadiana’s river mouth.
This is a very unique experience which our traveller’s Beverly and Bruce enjoyed a lot as the views from these streets are the whole encounter between the atlantic ocena and the river.
We enjoyed the wonderful fish recipes both in the market and the old taverns that surround it. This part of the town faces one of the marinas of the ancient town. We ended up in the marshlands front of the river left side making a stop in a beautiful little fishing neighbourhood for a nice coffe and a gentle sunbathing which took us to the most communicative silence I’ve ever experienced. Bruce and Beverly really know how to enjoy their trips. If you want to see more of their travelling style go to bevbrucelexi.blogspot.com. There you can find nice stories and pictures from their experiences abroad. I love their open minded attitude towards everything they face in their trips.
Thanks Bruce and Beverly for letting me take you to this field trip and for your enthusiasm and good vibe. It was a real pleasure.
