My first European experience a dream come true!
Over the course of the 7 days, Lingo Travels took me to just about every major spot in Paris such as: the Eiffel Tour, The Louvre, we went on a riverboat tour, a walking city tour, live jazz concert in the Fleur de Jardin, the Sacre Coeur de Montematre, Picnic at the Eiffel tour, we did a little window and some actual shopping at Galleria Lafayette, and my personal favorite, Sunday service at Hillsong. I was overwhelmed at all of the beautiful places, overjoyed that someone took time to curate such a beautiful trip for me, and over-the-moon because I felt like I was living out my dreams. Not forgetting the language portion of the trip, Eve made sure that I remained focused on my studies. She was both militant and patient, two things that I need when taking on a new challenge. Lol! Her method of teaching was quite effective as I found myself feeling brave enough to answer a question or two whenever we would go to cafes or when in random conversation at souvenir shops. Though my learning is still ongoing, because of the way Eve showed me around city and helped me with pronunciation and word recognition, I feel comfortable enough to traverse the city on my own should I return anytime soon. France language-culture trip with Lingo Travels was an ultimate experience; it has become my standard for culture trips. I will be forever grateful to Eve at Lingo Travels for making my first European experience a dream come true. It was everything I never knew I needed.
Definitely do this!
This retreat was exactly what I needed, immersing myself in Cuban culture while learning Spanish for two weeks in the land of salsa and rumba. The Spanish classes were structured but flexible enough to keep things interesting. Eve is a lovely host and a great language teacher, patient and happy to explain something again and again until it makes sense.
My First Experience out of the country
Cuba was my very first trip out of America. It was scary, nerve-wracking but Eve was all that I needed to get through the trip. I truly enjoyed it. I learned beginner Spanish, travelled in old cars and toured the city.
