Are you ready to take your Spanish to the next level?
Our Travel Spanish Immersion retreat will help you do just that. Everyone knows that when it comes to learning Spanish, nothing beats immersion.
If you’re a traveler who struggles communicating with the locals, ordering food, asking for directions, and understanding the culture, this program is for you.
Over the course of seven days you will practice and develop the skills to become a confident traveler, all with the teaching and guidance of a certified language instructor (May) and the help of the locals along the way.
This incredible experience will allow you to explore one of the most beautiful and charming cities in Latin America in a way most never will.
You'll discover the history of Guanajuato, and taste the food on a local Mexican street food tour. You’ll visit the famous Mummy Museum as seen in our videos, and learn how the silver-rich town of Guanajuato turned into the birthplace of Mexico’s independence.
You’ll be part of a small group of up to ten Spanish students. Each day you’ll get situation-focused lessons, and apply what you’re learning during the trip. With May and Jim’s help, you’ll get realtime feedback and encouragement throughout the retreat.
Jim and May are the founders of Spanish and Go, your resource for learning real-world travel Spanish.
May is a Mexican English and Spanish teacher who grew up in a small town in the state of Colima, Mexico. She has been teaching English and Spanish as a Foreign and Second Language since the age of 18. She graduated from the School of Foreign Languages in Colima in 2010. She has worked with students of all ages and hopes to be able to keep helping others learn around the world.
Jim is a gringo from Minnesota. In 2010 he decided he was no longer content with only being able to speak one language, so he set out to learn Spanish. As a result, he met his wife, May. As an added bonus, he never had to endure another Minnesota winter again.
Our Unique Spanish Immersion Program
The weeklong immersion with Jim and May combines group sessions and real world activities where you’ll use what you’ve learned immediately. All with realtime feedback. You’ll also have time to recover after the scheduled itinerary with time to shop, sample the local food, and get to know about the history and culture of Mexico.
An Authentic Culinary Tour
We combine course material with history and culture by taking you on a delicious and informative tour of the local food offerings. You’ll learn about and get a chance to try real Mexican food made fresh, including gorditas, tamales, tlacoyos, tacos, and much more.
