If you, like many of us, have toyed with the idea of learning a new skill in lockdown, chances are you’ve downloaded a language app to play around with… and haven’t touched it since April.
But if you’ve always fancied learning Spanish, it turns out the secret to making time for learning is to hole up in a luxurious Caribbean resort for private lessons. Obviously.
As well as Spanish tutoring, Casa De Campo offers a whole lot more than just sun, sea, pristine beaches and renowned golf courses; it is filled with art and rich gastronomy, as well as sites of historical and cultural importance. Plus, guests have a multitude of activities to choose from, ranging from a football school to horse riding, pottery lessons to paddle boarding. So if you decide to spend your lockdown life in the resort, you’ll never be bored.
In addition to all those activities, now, those looking to learn Spanish can book a private lesson with tutors from the nearby prestigious Abraham Lincoln School for US$40 (around £30) per person per lesson (based on 2 sharing a private lesson).
And besides if you feel the need to justify a Carribean retreat to yourself? You’re studying! You’ve got to put in those hours somehow…
For more information about Casa De Campo visit casadecampo.com.do. British Airways currently offers seven-night packages departing on 16 March 2021, including flights from London Gatwick and accommodation in a Superior Casitas room on all-inclusive basis for £1,336 per person. To book visit ba.com/holidays. Spanish lessons are bookable locally.
