Firstly we played a special kind of bingo, a Spanish food bingo, in which people had cards with names of Spanish dishes and they had to find people who had tried these dishes, the first person to finish it was the winner.
Once the ice was broken, we moved to the last part of the activity. We splitted people in pairs in order to have conversations in the language they wished. We gave them some questions to help them starting the conversation, and after a fixed time, other pairs were formed.
We provided some snacks, fruits and juices in order to lighten the mood and make the conversations smoothier.
The response of both the international students and the local students was very positive towards the activity. Since the general opinion liked the pairing system it was later used in other Tandems.
