If you want to learn Spanish, it would be a good idea to travel to a country where Spanish is the main speaking language. That way you can learn the language better, in its original form and instantly apply what you’ve learnt. Studying Spanish in Cuba would be great since Spanish is the official language in Cuba and the speech pattern in similar to that of the Canary Islands. So if you want to learn Spanish in Cuba, you can opt to get enrolled in a Spanish language immersion program in Cuba.
What is a Language Immersion Program?
Language Immersion is a method of teaching the language where the instructions are given in the same language. The main aim of language immersion program is to encourage bilingualism. It is always an advantage if you can communicate in more than one language, so if you want to learn Spanish as your second language, it’s time to pack your bags and fly off to Cuba.
So why would you choose language immersion over other language learning programs?You can find a number of language learning courses in your own country, so why would you fly off to another country to learn a new language. Learning language is not tough; putting it into practice is the tougher part. Think about a party where everyone speaks in English and you are the only one speaking in Spanish!! Sounds odd? This will not be the same in Cuba, since people would be communicating in Spanish, so you’ll have an opportunity to practice what you’ve learnt. Here are some more benefits of language immersion programs:

We are exited to announce that we have a new country to add to our growing list of Latin American destinations, Colombia! In preparation for the new base we travelled to San Gil, in the Santander region to see what all the fuss was about with the "Adventure capital of Colombia". San Gil, the 300 year old Capital of the region is home to 42,000 people and is the place to go for Kayaking, Paragliding, Caving, Hiking and Cycling and we hooked up with the guys at Colombian Bike Junkies https://lnkd.in/eHj7XsM to sample their one day downhill tour. We could not have been more impressed with these guys, seasoned professionals and all athlete's we covered the 47km in just over 6 hours of adrenaline filled fun and excitement, the terrain was varied from loose gravel descents, to fast downhill road sections and all spread amongst a jaw dropping backdrop of spectacular cascading river and almost vertical mountain terrain. We will have a full trip report coming soon and we will defiantly be adding mountain bike tours to our list of activities at Jakera Colombia!
