New Year’s Adventure

Have a New Year’s Adventure this 31st December

by Kathrin Schmitz

You don’t have any plans for New Year’s Eve so far but want to do something special – why not experience a different culture and improve your language skills at the same time? Cactus will take you to Madrid for a unique Nochevieja (night of New Year’s Eve)!

How to spend New Year’s Eve the Madrilenian way

The evening: Most families will start their evening with a copious meal, tapas and wine at a restaurant in the city. Bookings have to be made in advance as restaurants are quickly booked up.

The night: The next meeting point is the Puerta del Sol, the famous square in the centre of Madrid. This is where thousands of people gather to celebrate the remaining hours of the past year. Every year there is a laser show and music which creates a great party atmosphere. The event is also broadcasted on national TV.

The last seconds before midnight: When the big clock tower strikes the biggest challenge of the evening begins: during the last 12 seconds before midnight you have to eat 12 grapes (doce uvas) – an over a hundred year old tradition which brings you a lot of luck in the new year – if you manage to eat all the grapes.

At midnight: The sky over Madrid will be lit up by fireworks, people clink glasses and wish each other salud, dinero y amor (health, money and love). But the party doesn’t stop there. The crowd will move on into the clubs and bars and celebrations will go on until the early morning hours.

The Options

Take one week Spanish language tuition for £136 with the option of staying with a homestay family which will offer you the chance to experience New Year the traditional Spanish way. Alternatively you can stay in the centre of the city and enjoy the festives in the epicentre of all the action.

What Does Emma Say?

“I participated in the competition because I’ve been trying to learn Italian for some time but although my understanding is quite good (I studied other romance languages at university and visited Italy a few times), I’m not very good at reproducing the language myself, so a language course on location (and with the fab Italian food) sounded like the perfect solution! “

We wish Emma lots of luck on her language learning adventure, and you can follow Emma’s language learning experiences in Italy on our facebook page.
