Combine an intensive English course with a holiday in Spain!
Visit the El Alhambra, Spain's number one tourist attraction.
Explore beautiful Andalusia!
Formal English classes take place at Casa Cleopa
in the small village of Bracana is 38Kms from Granada, Spain.

Book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Minimum: 2 days
4 classes per day (45-minute classes)
The total number of lessons is entirely your choice depending on
whether the focus is on your English or your holiday!
The majority of learners aim at improving their fluency as this is a golden opportunity to work on your speaking.
However, you may wish to focus on accuracy in your writing or another language skill.
I have extensive experience teaching EAP, Business English, IELTS Preparation and General English.
Specific goals will be set that are realistic for the chosen timeframe and can be measured at the end.
Assessment and planning will form the first lesson. You can enjoy morning classes with an
additional activity option in the afternoons or evening. It all depends on your budget and how
much time you want to spend in my company in formal or informal classes.
(Informal classes on Day Trips are opportunities to practise your speaking.)
Lessons can be held formally in a 'classroom', or informally in real world contexts (cafe, library, street, Art galleries, museums, markets, hiking, or exploring Granada and enjoying a few tapas.) They are personalised lessons, so you decide how you would like to spend your time. My job as an English expert is to be your guide.
