What the Academy did today:

Today marks the final day of the MIL Granada Academy of 2019! 

Students had a special last day of classes to close the Academy.  Some groups went on class outings to reflect on their experiences, while other classes played some games.  

After having some free time to pack their bags and empty their rooms, the Academy attended the closing ceremony, followed by a farewell cocktail party! 

During the ceremony, the Academy watched a slideshow of photos reminiscing on the entirety of the four weeks, students received their diplomas for completing the program, and class groups convened one last time for some final words from the teachers.  At the end of the ceremony, the Language Pledge was officially broken! 

At the cocktail party, students enjoyed impressive views and tasty finger food on the rooftop terrace of the Carmen de los Chapiteles.  Everything made for a lovely evening. 

Congratulations to all of our students for all that they have accomplished throughout the past four weeks.  Not only have they practiced using a foreign language for most hours of their days, but they also made lasting relationships and unforgettable memories while doing so!  The staff has seen every student grow inside and outside the classroom. These kids are truly impressive, and while we are sad to see them go, they will carry this experience and a piece of Granada home with them.  A big thanks to those who followed the Granada Academy’s experience from afar!
