Meeting at my apartment (German – Spanish)

For our fourth meeting, we were all running a bit tight on schedule, as the holiday week was coming up and we all had our separate plans. Therefore, we just about managed to find a time that suited all of us and kept it simple with the activity. We met at my apartment (how convenient for me) to relax, play some FIFA and eat some food – and of course teach and learn!

After a few rounds of FIFA and some chatter, we decided to get into the topic of the day, which was a very important one: food. We went through a variety of different foods, and translated them into both languages. It was interesting to see the various differences that Spain and Mexico have for everyday foods.
