Our names are Alfredo and Jimena, and we are two well qualified Spanish teachers from Spain (we are both certified to teach Spanish as a Foreign Language and we both have Master Degrees in Languages). But above all, we are in love with languages, with their teaching and also with their learning.
The Principality of Asturias is located in the north-west of Spain, bordered on the east by Cantabria, on the south by Castilla y León, on the west by Galicia, and on the north by the Cantabrian Sea.
One-to-one and two-to-one
Our courses take place all year round and they can be as long as you want, if the dates are available. The minimum duration of a course is one week, and from then on there is no limit. If you wish you could stay with us two weeks, three weeks, one month...
They will be varied, and adapted to your tastes. We have different types of activities, and always in Spanish, of course:
IN THE CLASSROOM:
Always following a communicative, practical and applied approach, in the classroom we will carry out all types of activities tending to reinforce the main communicative skills.
In our classes we spare no technological means and we do every kind of activity: some of them are more theoretical, more related to the assimilation of grammatical or structural concepts (always following a communicative approach); others are more purely applied, conceived to make you put into practice all the things you know in real and amusing contexts.
In the classroom we hear native speakers in real situations, we watch videos, films, we read, we do conversational activities, debates, role play games, etc.
OUT OF THE CLASSROOM.
One of the main appeals of El Cuélebre, something which makes it different from other schools of Spanish, is that here you will really live in Spanish, by being a guest in our home and living with us. Without a doubt, this is a situation of complete and perfect intensive linguistic exposure: at your teachers’ home in Asturias, the most genuine Spain: the entire environment, context and infrastructure will be orientated one hundred per cent so that you can learn and speak Spanish in the most effective way.
Out of the classroom there will be different activities:
- Hikes and rides on horseback or bike, to discover the wonderful natural and human surroundings of Somiedo Natural Park, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in the year 2000. The Park has a wide range of unforgettable itineraries designed for all types of users, from the beginner to the more advanced and experienced hiker: we will design the outings so that the required effort corresponds to your physical condition.
In each season you will enjoy an exuberant natural beauty. Millenary chestnut, beech and oak forests; beautiful lakes, rivers, springs and waterfalls; a fauna that can be seen or hinted at and that includes bears, wolfs, eagles, vultures, foxes, chamois, deer, every kind of bird and many more; the snow-covered mountains, the green meadows, the thousands of flowers, the colourful autumn forest... All this landscape dotted about with the traditional local constructions or cabanas de teito, grouped in the peculiar brañas.
- Outings to other interesting places out of the Park. Within 90 minutes driving distance there are some very interesting and beautiful cities like Oviedo, Gijón and León. If you want, we can go on guided visits to these cities, each of them with its peculiarities and charms. We could also go to the coast, where you can enjoy the loveliest corners of the still very well preserved Asturian seaboard: beautiful beaches, lovely and genuine fishing villages, spectacular cliffs, etc.
A typical timetable of activities for three different days with El Cuélebre.
Even though a stay with El Cuélebre is always going to be much more, here we show you the timetable of activities for three typical days with us, so that you can get a general idea of what you will do in our Centre of Linguistic Immersion. This is just an example: as you know, we are flexible and we can adapt the type of activities to your tastes and needs.
