for all you people who need something NEW and exciting instead of the usual travel itineraries, try ENGLISHTOWN in spain. Its incredible, i just got back. 7 days living in a town with 20 spanish and 20 english speakers, they pay for everything once you arrive in madrid. www.vaughanvillage.com --- im going back in summer, hope to see you there!!!!
Hey Englishgal, I've had a look at this and I'm really keen, the website was down for applications last week but I'm going to give it another try today. Thanks for the tip and if I'm accepted I might see you there this summer!
I heard about "Englishtown," and applied a couple of months ago. I had heard that they get a lot of applications, so I didn't get my hopes up... but I was accepted to participate in October. I am very excited, and am hoping to travel around Spain (and possibly Portugal) following the program. I'll be doing the program Oct. 15-22. Anyone else going to be there the same time?
