This is the first immersive language retreat where you get to travel with a language and culture enthusiast just like you! Learn Spanish whilst firsthand experiencing the beautiful island of Cuba by cultural immersion. Live and taste the Cuban way of life for two weeks by enjoying Spanish language and one-on-one/group classes with me. This will be a cultural experience like no other trip before, guaranteed!
The course is intended for all Spanish and language lovers who want to not only get the gist of the Spanish language but also immerse themselves in the culture while studying. If you are a beginner in Spanish or you want to advance your current skills, you are going to learn a full Spanish-Entry-A-level course that will leave you with great basic conversational Spanish and hopefully the best memories of Cuba!
You will learn about the best methods for effective language learning through methodic workshops that teach you not only the theory but will be put into practice day by day when going about the Cuban life!
If you haven’t done a language trip before, this is the time to savour the benefits of learning while you dive into the cultural aspects of a society. I learnt Spanish this way in Spain years ago and it made me fluent in this beautiful language. So, I want to help and encourage those who might be a bit hesitant about travelling alone to bravely take a leap of faith and a big step forward. Ultimately it will be one of the best things you’ll ever experience (I’m speaking out of experience) and that is why I am more than happy to accompany you on your language learning journey!
Havana is the biggest city in Cuba, so we will take our time to explore different sites and activities throughout the first week. Each morning you will have Spanish lessons from 9am-12am, right after a homemade typical Cuban breakfast at our villa apartment. After classes you’ll have time to either cook lunch at home or explore Cuban cuisine in one of the many “paladares” (typical Cuban restaurants) throughout the city. In the afternoon there will be an activity from the ones mentioned below. Some activities will take a day so they’ll be shifted unto the weekend. Optional day trips on free days include Varadero and/or Viñales.
Trinidad is one of the oldest colonial towns in Cuba and absolutely worth exploring. Some fun activities we’ll explore there include horseback-riding to amazing national parks and swimming in natural water falls.
