WITH the worst of the pandemic over, the Bilingüe El Campello group are once again meeting each Thursday evening at Bar Barroko.

Campello mayor Juanjo Berenguer recent visited the group, who outlined their Christmas plans and also told him about their forthcoming Burns Night on January 25, explaining the traditional rituals that celebrate the life and works of Scotland’s most famous poet.

The principal objective of Bilingüe el Campello is to promote integration between Spanish-speakers and English-speakers in Campello and neighbouring areas.


The weekly Thursday meetings in Bar Barroko are free for both members and non-members wishing to practise their English or Spanish and socialise at the same time.
“You can choose to participate in a small group or simply socialise, speaking either Spanish or English or both,” the organisers said.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
