The school provides a unique Spanish language experience as emphasis is made on participants understanding the culture, as well as learning the language. Fun cultural activities will be included in your programme such as free cooking lessons and Latin dance lessons.

What were the highlights of your trip?

I initially did not want to go but my parents wanted me to have the experience of living in another country. I knew NO spanish when I left. I spent 2 weeks in the language school and 6 weeks in a small fishing town. When I arrived home I was fairly fluent in Spanish. The school was great. More fun that everyday school. Very interactive and I met people I will hopefully stay in contact with forever.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1.Bring books to read 2.Look into the country you are visiting and see what there is to do. The weekends are great for travel and if well planned , cheap 3. Plan on different foods, drink, etc. Try things you may never be back

Would you travel with our company again?

Yes

Would you recommend us?

Yes
