Spanish idioms: CAÑA

The word “caña” is the stem of a type of plant: it is elongated and hollow inside, like that of bamboo; although the word “caña” also has other meanings…

Spanish idioms: CAÑA 1

¡UNA CAÑA POR FAVOR! ¡NO, MEJOR DOS!
When we go to a bar and in Spain, and we want a beer we can order it in a bottle, but we also have the option to order a glass of beer: we ask for “una caña“.

ME HE COMPRADO UNAS BOTAS DE CAÑA ALTA EN LAS REBAJAS
We also use “caña” when talking about boots: if they reach the knee they are “de caña alta” boots, and if they only reach the middle of the leg they are “media caña” boots.

¡DALE CAÑA!
We also have the expression “dar caña” or “meter caña“, which means <<increase the speed when you do something, to hurry up>> : Si no te das caña no podrás acabar el trabajo.
Although it can also mean <<swearing at someone.>>.

¡QUÉ CAÑA!
And one of the most important: when we want to express our admiration or surprise for something, we say “¡Qué caña!”

So you know, we have “caña” for everyone. Pasad un buen día : ))

Entering the school through a beautiful massive and decorative door (on a street where you’d love to have your coffee and lunchbreaks), the inside will surprise you even more: an explosion of colours, art and atmosphere. And that’s what the teachers carry out too: such passion and enthusiasm. But the learning doesn’t stop as soon as class comes to an end. Taronja organises plenty of very fun, optional activities. In the afternoon, evening and even in the weekends. No chance to get bored here… I’m going to stay longer!

Очень понравилось! Училась 7 недель. Очень домашняя атмосфера и супер приятные люди. Консультировали по любому интересующему туриста вопросу. Проводятся ежедневные мероприятия помимо уроков(включено в стоимость обучения), это и экскурсии, и кино, и караоке, и кулинарные уроки и много чего другого!!! Удобное месторасположение - в самом центре! Обязательно вернусь в эту школу для продолжения изучения испанского. Спасибо, Taronja

Moderne en leuke manier van lesgeven Ik heb hier twee weken een cursus gevolgd en wat me vooral opviel is dat er op een moderne manier wordt les gegeven. Niet 'ouderwets' uit saaie boeken maar met steeds wisselende soorten oefeningen en gericht op de praktijk.
De staff en leraren zij over het algemeen erg enthousiast wat de hele ervaring exra leuk maakt.

La escuela estaba muy divertida, había actividades cada día y los personas que vienen son muy simpática. De verdad la experiencia estuvo fantástico y mi español ha mejorado mucho, yo sé necesito mejorar más pero si yo pude quedar más tiempo en esta escuela yo tendría fluidez español rápido.

Super week learning new language, remembering forgotten fragments and updating old phrases. The course was really well structured and delivered and great fun. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The Spanish cooking and singing sessions were the icing on the cake and the sun shone on the beautiful city of Valencia every day.

As a retired teacher (university) I was very impressed with the techniques used by the instructors. The classes are engaging; the teachers are motivating and supportive. I enjoyed the diversity of students in the classroom ( countries and ages). At the beginning of each week learning outcomes are presented. Then each class starts with a review of the days learning outcomes and ends with a recap of achievements-- theory, activities, and new words. Each class offers ample opportunities to practice new skills with a wide range of activities. Everyone has numerous chances to speak in every class with carefully crafted activities that are inclusive and fun. The small group size adds to the comfort for those of us who are intimidated with learning new skills.
Classes are pitched at each student's level based on a written assessment. However, during the morning of the first class each person can assess how comfortable they are with the material. They can then move to a higher or lower level class that will more closely meet their personal learning needs.
The school also offers a wide range of activities which further engages learners with more ways to practice language skills as well as to learn about the culture of Spain. I will do another post about my decision to study in Valencia
