Learn Spanish walking on Menorca for 2019
“Walk, talk and open a cork" - Learn basic Spanish whilst walking on beautiful Menorca"
The concept is simple, enjoy a wonderful day's walking along the beautiful Menorcan coastline and through its charming countryside, whilst being coached by a natural speaker who is part of the group. The hotel and restaurant staff that we work with will also have been asked to engage with you in Spanish, thus giving you time to practice your newly found skills. This is not, however, a hardcore language course. It's a holiday and of equal importance are stunning walks, inspirational scenery, plus great food and drink.
The Day's Events
We begin each day with a short coaching session in preparation for the day ahead and then enjoy a morning's walking, whilst using in context what we have been briefed on earlier. The walks are shorter than our standard offering, around 3/4 miles, thus allowing time to stop and practice what we have learned thus far. As well as your course tutor, both of your backup guides are Brits who've been through the traumas of learning a second language and will always be on hand to offer tips and help generally. We also encourage our guests to go out in the evening in order to mix with the locals, who you'll find are happy to oblige when seeing that someone is making a genuine effort to learn their language.
About your Spanish tutor
We're pleased to have Katie Devine as our tutor for the Learn Spanish week. Katie grew up on the island and is fluent in both English and Spanish. After graduating from the Sorbonne with a degree in Applied Foreign Languages and a Masters in International Studies, she completed her teaching diploma. Since then, she has lived in multiple countries teaching students of all ages and capabilities, from university students to business men and women.
Having lived abroad, she understands how frustrating it can be to learn a foreign language. This experience has taught her how important it is to show her students never ending patience and to give them plenty of encouragement. She knows that languages can't be learnt from a book and that the best way to learn is through practice and experiencing everyday life in said language. She sees how her students thrive when they are enjoying themselves and will apply this method during our Learn Spanish week.
Our accommodation for this holiday is the lovely 4 star and adults only Audax Hotel. The hotel is based in one of Menorca's loveliest resorts, Cala Galdana, and, whilst in a quiet location, is perfectly situated to enjoy the up market bars and restaurants in the area. The hotel is famous on Menorca for having the finest spa on the island and people stay at the hotel just to use this facility. Aside from the spa, the hotel is simply wonderful and all rooms are bright, modern and each have their own balcony. We use this hotel for some of our other holidays and our guests tell us that it serves the best breakfast of any of our holiday bases. This holiday is open to couples and singles alike, but there are only a limited number on single occupancy rooms that we are able to offer.
