Altan (14), one of my students, spent 14 days in Spain with 10 days of training. His soccer team trained at a soccer field in Valencia, all conducted in Spanish with daily lessons. They lived in dorm rooms. His parents got to watch him play games against local teams. Soccer is big in Spain; his mother tells me. They sent me pictures of the countryside, castles, and Sagrada Familia. She told me that walking or hailing cabs is the way to get around and that Spain is cheap overall and sophisticated. Altan stands at 6' and is a very intelligent young man and a great athlete, yet humble.
