      “Road Trip with idiomART: Pyrotechnic Museum in Gualaceo”
      Take a road trip with idiomART and explore Ecuador. As part of our CCC Spanish language program, every other month we will go adventuring somewhere different, and oftentimes non-touristy, to learn about the local culture. This month we will be visiting the Pyrotechnic Museum in Gualaceo for a pre-Carnaval celebration. We will meet at idiomART then hop on a private bus to Gualaceo where we will have a guided tour of the museum followed by dinner, music, dancing, and a special fireworks show! This tour is in Spanish, however, the guides are bilingual and will be able to help you understand some trouble spots if needed.
      – Saturday, Feb. 19. Leave idiomART at 4pm and return around 8pm
      – The cost is $40 and includes everything.

      “CCC Spanish Conversation Club”
      Once a month we find a special place in town to meet, have a drink, and practice Spanish through conversation. The conversation club is a great way to practice what you’ve been learning in a relaxed and realistic environment. All levels welcome!
      – Tuesday, Feb. 22 from 3:00 – 4:00 (location TBA)

      “CCC Spanish Language Program”
      We know that learning another language can be difficult and even daunting at times. CCC Spanish is different! We take the class out of the classroom and believe in the three C’s of learning a language: Conversation ~ Culture ~ Context.
      We have beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes. You can either do individual, pairs, or group classes. There is also the option of online individual or pairs classes.
      In March we will start new groups, if you sign up for 2 months or more, you will receive a 10% discount!

      As you can see, we have a variety of options and hope to see you there!

      To sign up and for additional information, please contact Sarah HB at: [email protected]

      *all classes are held on our outdoor patio space with lots of fresh air and beautiful scenery in our garden!
