The Spanish school in Santiago de Cuba is different from any other institution in that there is no physical building – lessons are held either in the host family home or in the home of your teacher. 

This enables you to be fully immersed in Cuban culture. Here at don Quijote, we recognize that it is important to develop the ability to interact in a group situation. Therefore, you will be given the opportunity to interact with other native speaking students in a Cuban cultural centre.


Types of Spanish Courses in Santiago

  • 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.
  • Intensive Spanish and Dance classes: this course combines language learning with cultural integration. The Spanish & Dance course contains 20 hours worth of intense language lessons per week plus 5 hours worth of Salsa classes taught in Spanish. Dance is a great way to relax after working hard.
  • Intensive Spanish and Music classes: The Spanish & Music course contains 20 hours worth of intense language lessons per week plus 5 hours worth of music lessons taught in Spanish. You will learn all about traditional Cuban music and even learn to play some yourself!



Each school day starts at half past eight in the morning and consists of fifty minute language lessons split up by short comfort breaks. Class-size is always kept at a minimum. 



Only native Cuban university graduates qualified to teach foreigners are employed by the school.



Host Family – if you choose this option then you will be living with a local family who will cook you breakfast and dinner, allowing you to grab lunch with friends between classes. A washing service is available. This is a good option for those moving away from home for the first time. All host families have a large, air-conditioned house in a charming area called Reparto Sueño.
