Discover Spain in an English Conversation
Pueblo Ingles has been described as an inspiring
cultural adventure, an enriching personal journey,
and a unique, human experience. Each week twenty Native
English speakers are sponsored to stay in a beautiful,
picturesque 4-star resort in Spain so they can converse
with Spanish professionals who want to improve their
English. Accommodation, food and wine are provided
in exchange for your conversation. It's a unique and
enjoyable experience and the best way to learn about
Spain if you don't speak the local lingo.
