Learn a language abroad and you can spend quality time in amazing locations doing something constructive. It’s a great feeling to be able to converse with someone in their native language. You can develop friendships and memories that would just not be open to you otherwise.
Like learn our Spanish courses. There’s nothing more satisfying than being up to speak with the locals, although this usually works better after you’ve had a few Mexican sol beers! The majority of us speak Spanish in the office, so we are no strangers to classroom time, but at Xtreme we like to do things a little bit differently, which is why you will find all of our Spanish courses have an element of real excitement or adventure attached to them. Kite surfing in Spanish, or learning Spanish in the Amazon rainforest on our Venezuela adventure classroom even learning to surf on the Pacific shores of Ecuador and learning Spanish there as well!
Of course learning doesn’t have to be all academic, we have some great adventure sports and martial arts you can learn, like learning to dive or learning to surf (or for the real ice cool individuals kite surfing) Be sure to check out our sports section if any of those appeal to you.
