Visit from our young friends from Valencia

Every year, we at HELP, Benidorm have a visit from young people from Valencia, who come to practise their English with us. They are students from the Institute of Secondary Education SERPIS, and it is a wonderful event and a great example of the young having fun with the not so young! 38 students were hosted by 22 HELP volunteers, and they came armed with their questionnaires, which all were answered in English. We had great fun too trying to explain the English sense of humour as they always ask us for some jokes!
