Holiday Itinerary

Whatever your level, choosing to combine Spanish lessons in Vejer, Spain with a Flamenco dance course is a new way to accelerate your learning experience as well as your cultural experience.

Flamenco is a very active part of Vejer’s culture that you shouldn’t miss out on! Immerse yourself in the local culture and take home new skills that will stay with you long after your trip is over.

Spanish lessons will be taught in the morning consisting of grammar, conversation, reading and writing by highly qualified native Spanish speaking teachers. The classes are kept small to ensure you have the attention you need and the right learning pace.

In the afternoon, get ready to dance with local professional teachers who work closely with the language school. Flamenco is often performed and danced in the local bars and on the streets, and we especially recommend the activities held at the local Flamenco bar, La Peña De Aguilar, where you can see it all come to life around you.

This unique Spanish and Flamenco week will give you a keen insider’s eye to the local culture of Andalucia, and your skills will go a long way with the helpfulness of your host family and engaging locals.

Who are our guests?
- People come from all over the world and you’ll never be placed in a class with just English speakers so that you use the language you are learning rather than resorting to chatting in English
- Ages vary, but the typical language learner falls into the 20-60 age bracket though we have no age limit and we’ve had guests in their 70s and 80s studying languages with us
- During the summer and in university holiday times the average age typically drops and there are many guests in their 20s
