Discover Germany in an English Conversation Holiday
The Pueblo Ingles program has been described as an inspiring cultural adventure, an enriching personal journey, and a unique, human experience. Each week 15-20 Native English speakers are sponsored to stay in beautiful hotel resorts in different regions of Germany so they can converse with German professionals who want to improve their English. Accommodation, food and drinks are provided in exchange for your conversation. It's a unique and enjoyable experience and the best way to learn about Germany if you don't speak the local lingo.
