Learning Spanish in a classroom during the evening in the UK has to be less inspiring than being absorbed by the country itself. Spend a genuinely inspiring week (or longer if you so wish) learning the Spanish language and cultural knowledge with Ana, within our rural Spanish country home. Situated just 50 minutes drive from Seville and just outside the beautiful village of El Pedroso, we are now taking Autumn 2020 through to Spring 2021 bookings for those seeking a more immersive Spanish learning experience within a real Spanish cultural environment.
Our country retreat is typical of a Spanish family’s second home and set spaciously at the top of a wild valley with 180 degree views of rich, private Spanish country hillside with hiking trails beginning at the house, by the river on the valley floor. Essentially our garden, filled with wild, bird and plant life never ends. After breakfast we will start the day with a morning of home learning to suit your level. Once we have had our fill here, we will then explore local shops and markets, engaging with the locals, practicing and developing our morning’s work. After lunch let’s explore deeper into the local area or take a trip into Seville and surrounding regions, where Ana will become not only your teacher, but also your personal guide. Each day will be different. During the evening, the learning will continue without you even knowing it, either beside the fire, barbeque or outside laid back on the porch, picking over typically local food and drink procured or grown, of course, by us. Our property and surrounding land is comfortable and spacious and we will set the learning pace as you wish, teaching from a ratio of 1:1, through to couples or group bookings.
Ana grew up in Seville and after spending 12 years teaching Spanish in the UK, has since travelled the world from the Arctic to the Tropics, returning to Andalucia to pursue her love of teaching and adventure sports in a slower paced country setting with her English partner Will. Perhaps you’re a keen climber, cyclist or paraglider pilot or fancy trying these pursuits? We are outdoors people and so if you wish (or not), will combine your learning with adventurous days out on the hill. After a week spent in the countryside with us you will leave speaking Spanish with more confidence, have a better understanding of Spanish grammar and customs, combined with a richer vocabulary. And, having been wound down to our pace of Spanish living, you will need integrating back into the “real world”, but sorry we can’t help with that part! Our learning weeks are fully customisable.
