Language holidays are not just for school kids and people in their 20s. Being in your 50s or 60s is very different to what it was 20 years ago.

Our Language Holidays 50 Plus are here to help you make the most of you time while learning a language and discover a different culture.

 

Language Holidays 50 Plus – Benefits and Activities

You can also combine a language course with other activities such as wine tasting, cooking classes, dancing, photography, art and crafts, cultural seminars and walking tours. The choices are endless and whatever combination you are looking for there is an option to suit your requirements.

5 Reason to Study Spanish in Valencia

Why Learn Spanish in Valencia? – 5 Reasons to Learn Spanish in Valencia, Spain

The beautiful beach city of Valencia, with its tree lined streets, mixture of renaissance, gothic, neo-classical and modernist architecture, and unrelenting nightlife, rivals Barcelona on many levels yet still has not experienced the same tourist influx as its neighbour in the north. Valencia is like Barcelona without so many tourists, so here our top 5 reasons to Learn Spanish in Valencia.

 

1. Amazing Festivals All Year-round

Valencia hosts one of the best and biggest festivals in the whole of Spain – ‘Las Fallas’. Huge bonfires burning down fine artistry; a parade that ends in a flower offering to the Virgin Mary; fire cracker wake up calls at eight o’clock in the morning – there is nothing quite like it anywhere in the world. Las Fallas takes place 15th – 19th March but there are events throughout the city in the two weeks leading up to the main festival. A great reason to discover the Spanish culture and the number one on our top 5 reasons to Learn Spanish in Valencia!

A cultural and architectural complex that is a must-see for any visitor to Valencia.

The locals are friendly, which is great when you want to chat and put into practice what you have learnt. Strike up conversation with los Valencianos in the central Market and they will serve you the best ‘bocadillos’!

Our Top 7 Places to Learn Spanish in Spain and Latin America

There are many fantastic places to take a Spanish language course, from capital cities and historic towns, to tropical beaches and local villages.

2. Havana, Cuba: Salsa Central

top 7 places to learn Spanish

Havana is a splendid city, there is a nostalgic charm to its dilapidated exterior yet is so beautiful the photos can never do it justice. From impromptu salsa dancing in the street, to mojitos with the locals, you will be awed and inspired by their energy and enthusiasm, for their lives, and in particular for their country.

In Havana all Spanish courses are held in the homestay accommodation, with the teacher delivering classes in the living/dining area of the accommodation. This is a great immersive experience as you not only get to live with Spanish speakers but also have the structure of more formal training with your teacher. And in your free time you can explore the fascinating Havana at your leisure.

3. Buenos Aires, Argentina: Everything Argentinian

top 7 places to learn Spanish

Buenos Aires is culturally in a class of its own. Its traditions and attributes are strong, and cannot be confused with any other city on the planet. Argentinian tango, asado (Argentinian steak cooked the Argentinian way), Argentinian red wine (Malbec) and Argentinian football (Boca Juniors or River Plate) are all a key part of Buenos Aires, its people and their way of life.

If you are unfamiliar with the Argentinian accent you will find there are some differences in the pronunciation but given the friendliness of the people you will be chatting with the locals in no time, becoming the best of friends.
