Time stands still in Cuba!

I absolutely loved my stay in Cuba and I came back home a passionate enthusiast about the Cuban way of life and culture!

I just couldn’t believe how friendly the people were! Please do contact us if you are considering a Spanish course in Cuba and have any questions about this wonderful location. I visited our school in Havana, and our team would also be happy to discuss our other Cuban courses in Trinidad and Santiago.

I love Santiago de Cuba!

I’ve been in most of Europe and much of Latin America, but Cuba is truly unique. It’s almost like going back in time, especially when you see the characteristic authentic American cars from the 50’s… There is so much to do and see and the people are really friendly and open.

I’m so pleased that I chose Santiago de Cuba… Raquel from the school is tireless and is always there for you, whatever questions you’ve got or whatever advice you need. She made me feel very welcome from the very first moment. Also Elvira, my Spanish teacher, was just brilliant. She is the best language teacher I have ever had. Very patient, but very attentive to my study needs. I really can’t praise her too highly and I would love to come back for extra lessons with her.

Santiago – The REAL Cuba!

My first hours in Santiago de Cuba were simply unforgettable. I have never met such friendly people before! When I arrived at my host family’s home, they had a rose for me! Immediately I felt so welcome. They made me comfortable, and after dinner, as we  ‘at home’!

Santiago was the first capital of Cuba and these days it is called the “heroic city”. It was also the cradle of arts and music of Cuba and it is easy to understand why. When you walk along its streets you find plenty of places were singers and musicians perform everyday. The most popular clubs are Casa de la Música, Casa de la Trova and Patio los dos Abuelos. These clubs are unique; I do not think that places like these exist in any other place in the world… with really good live music bands, Salsa and a simply unique ‘Cuban atmosphere’.
