Immerse yourself in the culture and language of Havana, and experience for yourself this fascinating city.

Our Spanish school in Havana, Cuba offers a unique setting for your study abroad program. Instead of centralising classes in a physical building, we offer students in Havana the opportunity to learn Spanish and experience first-hand the richness of Cuban culture in a personalised study environment with our experienced and highly qualified Spanish teachers.

Classes are held in the home of your host family, at the teacher's home or in small groups at a local Cuban cultural centre. In each of these different class settings, you'll be surrounded by native speakers and immersed in the culture of Havana. The school is affiliated with one of Cuba's most esteemed cultural organisations the UNEAC (Unión de Escritores y Artistas de Cuba).


Types of Spanish Courses in Havana

  • Intensive Course: 20 hours worth of intense language lessons per week. This is the fast track route to learning Spanish. In small groups, you will discuss interesting subject matter to improve fluency and gain confidence.
  • Super Intensive Course: If the intensive course isn't enough for you, you can enroll in the super intensive course which includes an extra 2 hours worth of tuition on top of the original 20 hours per week.
  • One to One: If intensive learning isn't for you and you'd rather go at your own pace, then you should opt for One-to-One. Individual tuition means that classes will be tailored to your specific needs.
  • Immersion Course: A combination of the Intensive course and the One To One course. The immersion course contains 20 hours worth of intense language lessons per week plus 5 hours worth of individual classes tailored to your specific needs. This course combination allows the student to ask any questions they might have from the group session in private.

We recommend staying with a host family in Cuba. Host families live in spacious, comfortable homes located in the nice residential area of Raparto Vedado. This is a quiet neighbourhood where you'll also find clubs and bars nearby. The area is about a 15 minute taxi or bicycle ride, or a 40-45 minute walk, from Havana's famous old town. You'll stay in a single room with air conditioning or a fan and take half board meals (breakfast and dinner will be provided).
