Learn Spanish in Cuba

Havana

Xtreme Cuba Experience (3)Much of the time in Havana will be spent learning Spanish, and you will be given 3 x 45 minute lessons every weekday. Don’t worry though, it’s not like school the lessons are informal and delivered by local teachers! The lessons are tailored to your level as well, with a test at the beginning of the program used to established what you need to be taught. You’ll be in small classes too, with about 6-8 pupils being the maximum.

You won’t just be learning the language in Havana though you’ll be learning the culture and traditions as well, and what is more Cuban than throwing your hair back and taking to the dance floor? Cubans love to dance, and you’ll get a couple of dance lessons each week to learn the basics of dances such as the cha cha cha, rumba and, of course, salsa. Okay, you won’t be an expert when you leave, but you’ll impress everyone when you get back home! You might even impress some of the locals with your moves when you head to one of the many different vibrant music venues throughout the city in the evening!

Throughout your time in Havana, you’ll also get the chance to head out on a number of excursions, taking in the different aspects of the history, culture and politics of this island. All tours are curated by a scholar from the University of Havana, meaning that you’ll only get the very best information. Once you head home, we hope that these excursions allow you to answer one simple question, a question that has baffled many people before you: what, exactly, is Cuba?
