Coastal Retreat (27 April – 2 May 2018, San Sebastián)

Live the Spanish language and its culture through one of its richest and more special regions.


Basque Country and San Sebastián enjoy an exquisite gastronomical culture, a specific culture and landscapes that will leave you speechless.


There isn't a better way to learn a language than living it, and there is nothing that encourages learning more than surrounding oneself with the language and the culture in a relaxing atmosphere oriented to the enjoyment as much as to the learning.


Get ready to enjoy of the beauty of the sea in Playa de la Concha, of their welcoming and good-natured people, of their gastronomy, because being in San Sebastián is synonymous of good-food and its art. 


Homemade experience.

Live the Spanish language through everyday homemade activities. Prepare the meals in Spanish, go to the market in Spanish, chat about the exquisite wine that you are drinking with your friends, enjoy of a movie from the comfort of your couch and discuss it with your friends... in Spanish. All in Spanish. 


Remember that learning a language is learning a culture, and culture is nothing more than a way of life. 


What a better way to learn and assimilate a culture than to live it to the maximum, in your flesh, as a regular Spaniard would do?


Ewa and I invite you to this experience of real Spanish, in an incomparable setting in which learning, enjoyment and relaxation merge so that you can leave this retreat feeling a little bit Spanish.
