Pueblo Español offers a unique and genuine insight into the
Spanish language, people and culture.
At Pueblo Español we gather groups of different profiled Spanish speakers to live, laugh and make you practice more Spanish than you’ve ever imagined.

IN BEAUTIFUL SPANISH VILLAGES
You will have to fly or get yourself to Madrid, Spain. Then we will take you to a beautiful, remote village, where you will forget about everything and leave your mother tongue behind, in order to immerse yourself in a true Spanish experience.
The Doña Teresa Hotel hotel is located in the town of La Alberca (province of Salamanca) and has been a National Historic Heritage site since 1940. The Rosaleda de Don Pedro Hotel is in Úbeda (province of Jaén) which has been a UNESCO World Heritage city since 2003.
Both towns will allow you even more contact with locals. A chance to use your skills, be it buying something from a shop, finding your way around the enchanting village, or even listening to the local town gossip!
WHO IS THIS FOR?
This language immersion program is for anyone who wants to improve their listening and communication skills, as well improving self-confidence when speaking in Spanish, gain fluency and self-confidence. You might need Spanish in your professional life or be learning just for pleasure and to be able to travel. Whatever your motive is, this is the most intensive course you will find!
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!
