I'm hoping to have two to three months this spring/summer to do some traveling though Europe. I'd love to improve my Spanish language skills at an immersion course in Spain. Any advice on a good program/school/location? I'd want to be able to sight-see while I'm not in the classroom, so a central location is preferable. Anyone ever attended one of these schools?
After I am fluent in Spanish (hey, I better be after how much it costs!) and have seen the sites in Spain & hopefully Portugal, I want to trek across France (really want to see the old family in Cahors/Bergerac), Italy (everything!), and the UK (esp. Ireland) before heading off on a Baltic cruise. Any tips for traveling through these countries? Safe to travel alone? Best means of transportation? Must-see spots? Accomodation recommendations? I'm just starting to plan, so any advice is greatly welcomed!
Hey there Liz,
I am planning to travel through France, Spain, and Italy this spring too. I am moderately fluent in spanish but want to improve it, and learn french and italian from scratch. I haven't any info on schools but from my experience full immersion as you're planning is leaps and bounds more helpful than mere classes. You're combining them is pretty much a guarantee of being fairly fluent.
I have a work visa for UK so after 3 months or so travelling europe I will be back here to work on organic farms and the like.
Maybe we can exchange info and advice received on this forum. Through our travels maybe we'll cross paths.
I am Oscar a 24 male from California. I also went to Europe this year and would love to go again next year. I bought a 2 month train pass and landed in Paris. I would love to go again next year with some travel companions. I would love to get a group togothere and travel to all the places you guys mentioned.
