Intensive Spanish courses in Spain
Would you like to improve your listening and communication skills and improve your fluency, while learning about Spain and its culture in real-life context? If you are serious about advancing your Spanish speaking and comprehension skills, our 8-day Pueblo Español full immersion course will give you the results you want. All while enjoying life in a beautiful small Spanish village, Spanish culture and food, and conversing with/listening to native speakers.
At Pueblo Español we gather groups of Spanish native speakers with different accents and from different regions to live, laugh and speak with you in Spanish. But it’s not a just a social thing-you will be immersed 100% in the Spanish language every hour of every day. Between many hours of one on one conversations with different Spanish partners and group activities such as practice conference calls or debates everyday (from morning until dinner) you’ll speak more Spanish than you ever thought possible. But without being put on the spot, or being force-fed certain sentences or meaningless phrases like in a classroom.
With expert staff, we facilitate over 100 hours of conversation and a schedule that is carefully designed so that you are constantly being challenged to use Spanish in a variety of contexts.

OUR CLIENTS’ SATISFACTION IS KEY!
I really enjoyed the program and found it extremely helpful. I especially liked the format of a non-classroom based set up – this makes it impossible to hide. The volunteers were great and especially as they had different accents and spoke with varying speeds – it made you listen very intently.
I thoroughly enjoyed Pueblo Español and feel that I have really benefitted from it. As I said my confidence in Spanish and in life in general has increased and I would like to thank you all for giving me this opportunity.
A person embarking on Pueblo Español needs to know about the ‘rule’ of the total immersion: no speaking their own language to the volunteers or each other for the entire day. During all the waking hours, we interacted only in Spanish. About 16 hours a day!
