Learn Spanish in Cuenca
Brush up on your Spanish or learn the basics from scratch in a peaceful and elegant setting.
With its gracefully curving river banks and flourishing gardens, the colonial city of Cuenca is a great place to learn Spanish in a tranquil environment.
You might be looking to learn the basics of the language before setting off for the rest of your trip, or to brush up on your intermediate Spanish in an inspiring setting. Whatever you hope to gain from a language course, this is an enriching experience which will grant you inside access to sides of South America you might otherwise miss out on.
Classes are held in a peaceful converted townhouse in a quiet residential area. Language tuition is in short, bite-size sessions spread over a week, offering a rapid grounding in grammar and vocabulary as well as a contextual overview of the local culture. Accommodation is with a friendly local family to offer you the chance to practice all you've learned, while there are also regular trips and activities beyond the classroom.
