FOREIGN residents of Motril are welcome to participate in intercultural workshops to celebrate Andalucian Regional Day (February 28).
Councillor for Social Services and Immigration, Angeles Lopez Cano, launched a series of fun classes that seek to help familiarise the foreign community with the many fascinating aspects of the autonomous community they live in. The course will take place between February 18 and 25.
“These activities are aimed at helping foreigners understand the social, historic and cultural background they are part of, through an ‘Andalucian breakfast,’ explanations of Andalucian emblems such as its flag, coat of arms and anthem, as well as the most representative historic sites of the eight provinces,” said Ms Lopez.
She also stressed the importance of learning the Spanish language as, “it is the key that opens the door to social integration.”
Finally she explained that the course was conceived to encourage intercultural education aimed at raising awareness and mutual respect between foreigners and locals.
