Cultural, Adventure & Spanish Language Workshops


We’ve only attended one of the workshops thus far and really like this concept.  There are a variety of workshops offered throughout the year to give you some focused time with a theme.  Usually the workshops are about two hours from one to three days and are no doubt interactive and fun.  You may learn while you are out on a walk and see ruins from the Spanish Civil War.  Perhaps it is in the classroom, focused on the subjunctive grammar through interaction and games.  We attended a 3-day workshop on pronunciation and it was fantastic.  If they don’t have a particular workshop you want or it is offered when you aren’t in town, just ask if they can create one for you and your friends.

Experiential Learning

Their goal is to make you feel like a welcomed guest with firsthand access to the history, traditions, people, and cultural nuances of Andalusia.  This will allow you to be culturally immersed, which gives you a broader understanding of Spain.  At Centro el Mar they set the stage and create a space for you to make authentic connections that are deeply meaningful.  Everything is presented with passion, which makes all of the difference in the world.  Learning from those who care and want to share it with you couldn’t be any better.
