FREE CINEMA IN SPANISH: "No"

Join us on Monday 13th February for the free screening of "NO", in The Landor Pub (70 Landor Rd, SW9 9PH).

 

"No" is a 2012 internationally co-produced drama film directed by Pablo Larrain. The film is based on the unpublished play El Plebiscito, written by Antonio Skarmeta. Mexican actor Gael García Bernal plays René, an in-demand advertising man working in Chile in the late 1980s. The film captures the historical moment of advertising tactics in political campaigns as in the 1988 plebiscite, when the Chilean citizenry decided over whether dictator Augusto Pinochet should stay in power for another eight years.

At the 85th Academy Awards the film was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

 

The film will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles. We'll start showing the film at 8pm but it'd be great if you try to arrive between 7pm and 7.30pm to enjoy a drink and a chat before the film starts.

THEATRE NIGHT IN SPANISH

We couldn't be more excited about the recent opening of the Spanish Theatre Company in London!


As an homage to the 400th anniversary of the deaths of two geniuses of universal literature, they have adapted two Entremeses (short plays) by Cervantes, featuring some of Shakespeare’s well-known characters.  The entertainment happens in a mixture of Spanish and English, but is understandable to speakers of both.

Ticket includes tapas and a drink for the full entremés experience. Performances run at 7.30pm from the 1st to the 18th of February. Contact info@spanishhouselondon.com with your preferred date and we will arrange the group night out!

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!
