Practise Spanish in...
One of the best ways to practise and improve your Spanish is by immersing yourself in a Spanish-speaking city.
El Patio offers a cultural immersion programme which aims to strengthen students' confidence in using the language. As such, classes will focus on everyday Spanish and we'll ensure a range of approaches and activities that encourage interactions between students and native speakers. What's more, we'll organise unique, outside-the-classroom activities that'll see students tackling common everyday situations all while soaking up the local highlights.
