Multi-lingual quiz at Harbour Club set to become annual event 

PAGE 22 MULTI

A unique experiment where young students joined holidaymakers in a multi lingual “Quiz Show” has been heralded a success.

Quick fire and team questions about England and Spain saw 27 Spanish children from Hispano Britanico in La Laguna pit their wits against guests at the Harbour Club, Los Gigantes.

Questions were asked in both languages and the quiz questions were set by David Hardy, the marketing hospitality executive at the Elite Club Resorts destination.

Mr Hardy is famed for his ability to compile exciting quizzes which are a key highlight of tourists stay at the resort.

He said: “When I was asked to put a quiz together for 27 Spanish children who were joining the English adults for a quiz I was nervous to say the least — because of the mix of questions I had to find.

“The children mixed well with the adults helping them with the Spanish questions and visa versa, my initial nerves were gone within the first couple of minutes.

“And the feed back I have had from the adults here at The Harbour Club and from the teachers and pupils was amazing.

“So, all in all, the event was a roaring success and the teachers are hoping we can make it an annual event and to be honest — so am I.”

On their website, the college said: ‘The Quiz Show’ experience turned out to be enriching for both parties, since they had to help one another by answering the questions in teams.”

And thanking the Harbour Club team for their generosity, the college said they hope “this experience becomes an annual event.

“A swim in the club pool and a delicious paella made the day a unique experience.”
