A worry free trip: we look after you
An authentic experience
“ The activity I liked the most during the course was the Language Exchange. We were speaking to the family and closest friends of the teachers… That was brilliant!
We met up in a bar and chatted in Spanish. Every few minutes we would change and talk to a different person.
I felt very relaxed with them because everyone was so friendly!
I think it would be very hard to find that in any other course. “
Everyone is very well looked after
“ While on the trip in Cáceres, I started feeling unwell.
I mentioned to the teacher that I ́d like to see a doctor. He came with me to a clinic. Within 30 mins, a doctor was seeing me and Lolo (the teacher) was there to translate everything for me.
Luckily it was nothing serious and I felt better after resting. But Lolo kept checking on me to make sure I was okay. I felt very well looked after. He’s one in a million! “
“We practise Spanish in real life every day”
Everyday we learn something new in class, like how to buy food, clothes, go shopping or ask for directions. Then later we go downtown and practise what we have learned.
For example, we went to the local market. There we had a series of tasks to complete, like buying typical products such as “botijo” so we had to speak to the vendors at the stalls. It was lots of fun and gave us more confidence.
A stunning place full of friendly people
Cáceres is gorgeous, historic and so easy to get around
I didn’t want to leave.
“I didn’t know anything about Cáceres before the trip. But from the moment I arrived I felt at home. Caceres is so beautiful, full of history and easy to get around. And people are extremely friendly.
During my free time, I would go for walk in town. Once I was looking for a hairdresser and asked a local girl. She was so helpful and walked me to the nearest one and even helped me book it.
Everyone is so friendly! At the end of the week, I didn’t want to leave.”
I had been on other Spanish courses but this one is different.
“The teachers have a lot of enthusiasm and it’s contagious! It’s not just classes, they spend so much extra time with us: having coffee breaks, dinners, trips, etc. as brilliant!
In the evening we meet for a meal and speak in Spanish. Inma always has a little notebook and would write the words down for us. But there is no pressure to speak Spanish all the time. It’s a bonus and we learn extra things with them.”

When can I book my flight?
The nearest airport to Caceres is Madrid. Your arrival flight should be in Madrid before 12.00 midday to be in time for the connecting bus transfer. The return flight must depart Madrid after 3.00pm. You must contact us before booking your flights to confirm availability on the course and to provide your flight details.
Can you recommend where to stay?
Accommodation is not included in the price for this Cáceres course, as there many great choices for all budgets and tastes. Bear in mind when choosing the location for your accommodation that our meeting point is Plaza de San Juan and our classes are in Palacio de Monroy – all very close to the central Plaza Mayor, so ideally you should stay within 15 mins walk from these. We can also recommend some accommodation if you like, just let us know.
Can I come early or stay longer?
Of course, you can arrive before the course and stay longer after the course. Some students make the trip a longer holiday to visit Spain. If you arrive earlier or leave later we won’t be able to provide a bus transfer to or from Madrid airport, as the transfer is only for the arranged course dates.
Where do the classes take place?
The lessons will take place in the gorgeous Palacio de Monroy – a medieval palace – just beside the Plaza Mayor, the most lively and central spot in the city. You’ll have classes from 10.00h to 13.30h Monday to Friday with a mid-morning break. You’ll love having your ‘café con leche’ with the locals!
Do I get my money back if I cancel my trip?
If you need to cancel your trip within 30 days before the trip, we will refund your money in full minus the course deposit (€150). If you cancel less than 10 days before, we will refund you 50% of your payment.
Do I need to have my own private health insurance?
If you are an EU citizen, you should get a free European Health Card (blue card), which will allow you to visit a public doctor for free. You can also go to a Private Clinic and pay their fees (we can help you with this if needed). You can also arrange Private Health Insurance.
How can I get the early bird discount?
If you see it available on our website, it is available, as simple as that.
Should I book travel insurance?
We always recommend that students arrange travel insurance, for peace of mind.
Is this course for me?
“I have been studying Spanish on my own but I’ve never been to a class. I was a bit nervous and wasn’t sure if my Spanish was good enough to come on this trip. But after talking to Lolo, I knew that I wanted to come on this trip.
During the course, everybody was encouraged to participate and yet there was no pressure to be good at Spanish. Plus we always had two teachers in the class and during the activities to help us. We all felt included and I enjoyed every bit.”
