We offer this package in collaboration with the local cooking school who is located in our neighborhood. Spanish cuisine owes a large part of its typical dishes to the Arabs.
Although many cultural achievements from that period were forgotten when the Christians reconquered Spain, the art of cooking and baking has remained. Our students learn how to prepare some of the most exquisite recipes coming from Al-Andalous times. Our teacher, Javier Vilchez, is a professional cook with many years experience in catering. He will demonstrate the preparation of special dishes, or a tapas selection. He also informs students where to buy local products, especially organic food and wines.
Today, more than ever, we believe in the incredible importance of travelling. It's only by travelling and meeting new people that we begin to understand that we all share the same world. So how do we make that ride not just a quick fairground twirl, but something that we can enjoy for our travelling lives and pass on to future generations? By changing our travel habits and thinking differently about how, where and why we travel. Responsible travel means assessing our effect on the environment, local cultures and economies, and acting in a way that makes our impact as positive as possible.
We are a non-profit co-operative organization whose members each participate in the decision-making process of the school. Our permanent teaching team is responsible for the entire Spanish course programme. The school is managed and directed by three coordinators. All of our teachers are native speakers with
university degrees, and they are specialists in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. They also participate in teacher training courses in Spain on a regular base, in order to be able to employ the latest learning methods and materials. Theses courses are paid by the school. All cooperative members receive the same salary. Our aim is to create a lively and stimulating relationship between teachers, coordinators, staff and students. This atmosphere of
warmth and sharing ensures rapid progress in a short time.
