Spanish and South American Wine Tasting

Dry January is (thankfully) over! It's time to gather around a bottle of wine. Or we should say around 5 or 6, because that's the number of wines that we'll be tasting on Thursday 23rd of March at 7.30pm at Cellar.SW4 (1 Voltaire Rd, London SW4 9DQ). All of them from Spain, Argentina and Chile — very culturally related to learning Spanish!

But we won't just drink the wines; the experts of Cellar.SW4 will show us how to sample, observe, smell and taste them as well. A tasteful, social and educational activity for only £18 (payable on the day at Cellar.SW4). This is definitely a must!

 

If you don't want to miss this event (and we're sure you won't), you must let us know you're coming by the 21st of March at the latest. Just drop us a line to spanish.house.london@gmail.com to confirm your attendance!

 

¡Salud!

Practice your Spanish and learn Salsa in Cuba

After improving your Spanish with Spanish House London, why don’t you test your new skills talking to native speakers in Cuba?

 

Add some salsa or rumba to it, dolphins in the paradisiacal beach of Cayo Blanco, Cuban drumming workshops, and some nights out at the hottest clubs of Havana. All this with the support of local people. Sounds fun?

 

Then, contact our partner Braes Travel (www.braes-travel.com), an agency specialized in taking small groups to Cuba, and enjoy a unique trip suited for everyone wishing to experience authentic Cuban culture. Or, if you prefer, join their group and go to Brazil instead. They don’t speak Spanish over there, but you still might be able to communicate with them as Portuguese is a sister language.

 

And don’t forget your camera!
