Study Spanish in the Home of your Own Private Teacher in Havana


Havana is a city unlike any other. This lively and beautiful capital has a festive atmosphere and an infectious energy. As you stroll through the city streets you can enjoy the rich, full-bodied smell of cigars, the rhythmic sounds of island music, and the many captivating and colourful sights of Cuban life – dancers, artists, classic cars, the mixture of tropical plants and animals, Spanish-colonial buildings, and ironic pieces of 1950s Americana make Havana one of the world’s most wildly beautiful urban spaces.

Havana has a variety of exciting events and festivals which showcase its vibrant culture. One of the most successful festivals is the Havana International Jazz Festival, which was originally held in the Casa de La Cultura Plaza, and has now spread to concert halls and streets throughout the city. Havana also hosts an International Film Festival. This festival is a great opportunity for students to see Spanish-language films and practice their new language skills!

With the Live & Learn program you’ll get to experience this enthralling city in a unique and truly immersive way. Your host family will be able to recommend particular places of interest as they get to know you personally through your private, professional Spanish lessons. In Havana, we’re also happy to be able to offer a variety of excursions to enhance the Live & Learn experience. We have a number of city tours, beach excursions, and even a salsa dance school right in the city. Please contact us for more information!

This opportunity to learn Spanish in the home of your own personal teacher is also available in Spain, and San Jose. Alternatively, check out our full list of Live & Learn destinations.
