Cooking became the perfect excuse to get to know each other and practice Spanish. Through this activity, all attendees shared a day of inclusion through one of the most valuable axes of culture: gastronomy.
With activities like this one, refugees can improve their communication skills in the language they are learning as well as in different social contexts that can help them to feel integrated among society. In this case, refugees learned to prepare Spanish omelete and Salmorejo, while comparing them with other recipes and allowing volunteers to learn details about their countries of origin.
Organized into groups, they cooked different dishes, coordinated by a language facilitator. But soon other activities arose and there was also time to dance, sing and get to know each other better. Finally, and once the dishes were prepared, they shared the food together and chatted until the end of the activity.
