The location

Immerse yourself in Spanish language and Cuban culture at this welcoming and professional school situated in the La Vibora residential district of Havana, offering a total immersion into Cuban life, and a break from the tourist frenzy in Old Havana (which is just 15 minutes away).

Located at a two-story house with garden, the school is quite unique, as in addition to housing 6 classrooms, it also includes 2 double rooms to accommodate students, a cafeteria or dining area, and a classroom for dancing lessons. Since the school is also a residence, it is open 24 hours a day, has private security, and students are free to drop by anytime. It is possible to meet there with other students and relax after class. To this end, the school has a roof garden and a terrace where students can enjoy long chats with their teachers. 

The school’s atmosphere is rather laid back, and similar to that of a large family. It offers breakfast and lunch during the week and breakfast and dinner during the weekend. This gives the school a one-of-a kind character that is hard to compare with any other school in the world. Lessons take place in the morning, and afternoons are used for cultural, tourist and leisure visits. 

Havana is the capital of Cuba, and home to around 2 million people. It is the perfect place to visit for culture, dancing, cigars, beaches and more – and is still relatively untouched due to the various political situations in the past. 

Accommodation

There are several accommodation options for your stay, all within walking distance from the school building at pleasant residential La Vibora. The area is an authentic Cuban neighborhood, only 15 minutes away from Habana Vieja. 

Family homestays are walking distance from the School and do not offer meals. Residence rooms are located within school grounds and across the street. Independent apartments very close to the school are also available to be shared with other students. Each apartment has: two rooms (one with 1 bed and the other with 2 beds), large full-equipped bathroom and kitchen, air conditioning, a balcony or patio. Towels and bed linen are provided. 

The school’s cafeteria serves breakfast and lunch every weekday and, on weekends, dinner instead of lunch. Meal time is a very important moment as it’s an opportunity to engage with other students and the school’s staff. The food is rich and local, prepared freshly everyday. The neighbourhood also has local restaurants called paladares, small shops, street vendors and other services.

"This school felt like a second home during my stay in Madrid. There is no better feeling than being surrounded by wonderful professors who are ready and willing to teach you and are actually interested in your progress.".
