This year’s Battersea Spanish Immersive Spanish trip takes us to sunny Andalucía, and more specifically to one of the most breathtaking places on Earth: stunning and historical Ronda. We have partnered for this experience with the highly regarded, warm, creative and amazing local Spanish school Entrelenguas, who not only shares the learning and community ethos of Battersea Spanish, but also the commitment to deliver high quality and personalised unique and engaging learning experiences.
Below you can see the detail of the programme. Please note that we only take a very limited amount of students in our always sold out trips, so be quick to secure your seat if this is an experience you don’t want to miss out! Priority booking will be given to our Spanish students and friends. If you don’t learn with us but are interested in this trip, please email us to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in a waiting list.
In this occasion we have chosen for students to stay with handpicked local host families to make sure that their linguistic experience is maximised, as well as their cultural exposure and insight. If a student prefers to stay in a hotel, they can do so, but this would be at their own expense. However, we truly hope most students will embrace this wonderful opportunity!
