Learn Spanish in Salamanca, the heart of Spain

£980

Sat 27th August - Sat 3rd Sept 2022

We base ourselves in Salamanca, one of the most beautiful and historic cities in all of Spain, and as well as getting to know this magnificent city, we will explore the surrounding region. 

This whole area to the north and west of Madrid is famous for its excellent cuisine, and it boasts some stunning architecture, as well as having a strong claim to be the literary epicentre of Spain.

It is also the city where the 'purest' Spanish is spoken (people of Valladolid might take issue with this), giving us a better chance to understand and be understood as we learn...

Who's it for?

Suitable for those with any level of Spanish, and a desire to see the "real" Spain.

Over 18s only.

Where do we stay?

There is the option to be billeted with a local family for all or part of the time, but most students prefer to stay together in hotel accommodation. A booking has been made in a hotel in the heart of the city, The Silken Rona Dalba, selected for the combination of personal recommendation, positive reviews, value for money and very central location.

Lessons

Language classes are differentiated by level (beginner/intermediate/advanced) and we have a unique 'buddy' system: we assign you to a friendly local, who helps us with our Spanish in exchange for practising their English.

Our Spanish teachers are a mixture of native speakers and well-qualified teachers from England, with lots of experience of leading trips.

When?

Sat 27th August - Sat 3rd Sept 2022

7 nights

How much?

£980 (this does not include transport to Salamanca, but help can be arranged to get to/from airports or train stations). Breakfast is also on an 'optional extra' basis, as some people might prefer to be creative at 8 o'clock each morning.

How's it structured?

A more detailed itinerary will be published nearer the time, but typically:

* Early morning exercise (optional)

* Spanish language lesson

* Lunch together

* Excursion or free time

* Evening meal together and optional activity 

Our buddies will accompany us on some of the excursions and some of the language sessions
