El placer de viajar con la excusa de escalar

Sandra loves travelling while practising climbing, her favourite sport. In this exercise you'll practise idiomatic expressions, prepositions followed by infinitives and some subordinate clauses.

Pay attention to the hints!

Some vocabulary you may want to look up before or during this exercise: "to recognise (admit)", "landscape", "provided (on condition that)", "to go by (time: pass)" and "balance (person: ability to stay upright)".

I’ll give you some sentences to translate into Spanish

  • I’ll show you where you make mistakes
  • I’ll keep track of what you need to practise
  • Change my choices if you want

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

I admit that every time I have the slightest opportunity, I grab my backpack and get lost in El Chorro, which is the climbing paradise in Andalusia. The more I think about it, the more I believe that I am somewhat keen on nature and adventure trips to not only admire the views and relax, but also to be able to practice climbing provided there is a suitable place to do it. As the years go by, it's possible that I have become used to making the most out of this sport while discovering amazing places. In addition, thanks to climbing I work on my balance and it's a powerful antidote to stress. I can't wait for the weekend to arrive and to head to any village in the mountains to spend some wonderful days doing my favorite sport.

Getting that for you now...
