This opportunity to practice your Spanish in a group of comparable levels, around a good coffee in a typical Latino café bistro is offered four times a week.
The conversations are led by a Latin American teacher or facilitator who will ensure that everyone has a chance to speak, who will correct you but not to the extreme and who will provide you with the themes. Available all year round.

Annual Trip

Once a year, we organise a trip to a Spanish-speaking country with the aim of providing you with a total Spanish immersion experience. With the skills we’ve acquired over time, we’ve adapted our trips to give you the best travel, the one you’ll remember for a long time. Thus, we started in 2004 with all-inclusive packages to popular destinations to arrive at adventure trips that made us discover beautiful countries sometimes off the beaten track. We are currently favouring the learning trip, the one that will make us discover some regions of a country, its unavoidable attractions while keeping a little time to know more about its history, its culture, its customs and its regional vocabulary.
