MEREFSA, sensitive to social needs, is committed to cultural events whose concern lies in the professional future of our youth and this year participates as a sponsor in the sixth edition of the Tortosa English Festival.
The Tortosa English Festival is a cultural initiative that has more than achieved, since it began in 2013, its objectives. Nurturing itself from the collaboration among local entities, that first year crystallized its commitment to training young people living in the region, future professionals, to master English and other business languages, essential today.
After that successful first edition, the TEF has become an indispensable festival in Terres del Ebre. Thus, during a week of the month of April, the most diverse activities directed to the residents of Tortosa and Roquetes have been celebrated for five years, who do not hesitate to participate actively.
Always in a ludic and festive tone, contact with English is carried out through fun cultural initiatives that have been consolidated in each of the editions to become essential classics such as the debate contest or karaoke.
But the will of the TEF is to cover a wide range of neighbours of all ages and that is why activities are also dedicated to children and adults alike and an example of this are literary events where both can share their stories by reading aloud.
Another of the classic events that have been during these years has been the Bar Quiz Night (the night of contest in the bar) with absolute success of participation and that gathered, for example, in the edition of 2017 to about 300 neighbors who could not only enjoy a collaborative initiative but also an increasingly familiar language such as English.
Once again, in its idea of being a transversal event that encompasses all manifestations of culture, gastronomic events such as the Irish Breakfast in which not less than two hundred and fifty people attended the aforementioned edition of 2017 could not be absent.
And as a finishing touch, the awards ceremony has also been gaining relevance in a ceremony in which the sponsors of the TEF together with the major deliver the prizes to the winners of the different contests.
Now the TEF has reached its sixth edition and MEREFSA, sensitive to cultural and social initiatives that bets in the future of youth, could not help but participate as a sponsor in an event that expresses what is in its own DNA.
