Valencia. The Spanish students who arrive at the city of Valencia not only want to learn the language but also our customs, festivals, forms of life, etc. For that reason when already they have spent days in the city of Valencia and begin to listen to speak of the celebrations of the towns they do not stop to ask itself that events will be celebrated so that all the people do not want to lose them. During the months of Julio and August, the Spanish students have realised amount of extra-curricular excursions to towns of the Valencian Community to know the life in the town, the celebrations in the town and what the attention has called them more: els Seine fishings to the Carrer or bulls by the street. All the students of Spanish knew the tradition bullfighting that there is in Spain, but no of them knew these celebrations so traditional that they repeat year after year and that they cause that the towns of the community overflow with visitors. The month of September was not less going to be and many students of Spanish went to the celebrations of Alaquas, a located town a 7 kilometers of Valencia.
The motivations of the students who come to study Spanish defer one from the other, for that reason the Spanish schools supply diverse more specific courses or for a more concrete area. By this, it is no wonder two students of Coast of Valencia, school of Spanish, would join themselves to go to this festival with the other students of Spanish. One of them has realised a Literature course and the other is become fond of to the Spanish gastronomy, what have common? Since the student of the Literature course was interested in the costumbrista Literature of Spain and he concentrated in the gastronomical customs, whereas the other student, a great cook in his floor, wanted to know like cooking a true Valencian paella. Arranged both to it, they scored at an excursion that abri the vision to them of the traditional Valencian gastronomy. When the Spanish students arrived at Alaquas everything was diversion, the spectacle of the bulls, the crowd that was by the street, oa music throughout but the best moment arrived with the contest from paellas, both students mentioned previously with other students of Spanish get ready to realise a Valencian paella, they finished when it, had spent the time maximum of accomplishment and for that reason they could not enter contest, but all are sure that if had entered the contest they had gained, it because to the two hours it was not any grain of rice. Although the contest finished, the celebration in Alaquas had not finished, next to the paella contest, the Spanish students enjoyed a refreshing bath in the public swimming pool of the town and continued celebrating in this typical celebration of the towns of the Valencian Community.
