SPANISH LANGUAGE TOURS
There’s no better way to experience a different culture than to learn the language. Our Spanish Language Tours combine language immersion with cultural interaction, sightseeing, and relaxation in great Spanish destinations. You’ll come home with wonderful memories and new language skills to use in your personal life and career.
In 2017 there are three Spanish Language Tours for beginners through advanced levels. These tours have four hours of language instruction on weekdays paired with evening activities that engage you in Spanish life and culture. You’ll also have weekend excursions to wonderful destinations like Segovia, San Sebastian, and Toledo and visit historic sites, great art museums, and take in cultural events. There’s time for shopping and relaxing and, of course, the food and wine of Spain are incredible. Perhaps best of all you’ll have the chance to meet others interested in Spanish language and culture. You’ll be practicing your language skills as you buy items in markets, take cooking classes and dine out with our guides and fellow travelers.
All language instruction is held at Spanish language schools accredited by the prestigious Instituto Cervantes. Our partner schools place you at the appropriate language level and use small group instruction that is dynamic and participatory with an emphasis on real life situations that will broaden your vocabulary quickly. (It is also possible to join the tour without the language course.)
Combine the Language Tours! The 2017 Spanish Language Tours are scheduled so that you can travel from one Spanish Language Tour destination to another and explore different locales. The tours last ten days with four days off before the start of the next tour. This allows for flexibility and choice. For example, you can opt to stay in Madrid after our tour ends to soak in the city or take more language courses. You could also travel around Spain after the language course and take in a destination before the next course begins in Bilbao. We will gladly help plan your trip and make suggestions and arrangements.
