Are you ready for the real adventure? We’d love to get to know you better and work with you to create your ideal program. Places on our Sport Experience programs are limited, so you’ll first need to fill out an application form, which we’ll forward to the relevant program. This can be done easily online. But don’t worry – with enough motivation and interest, every one of our participants has been accepted into the program so far. About 2-4 weeks after we receive the application, we will send you the confirmation.
Do I need Spanish knowledge?
Depending on the level of your existing Spanish knowledge, we recommend that you take a language course at the beginning of your program to acquire some basic knowledge or to refresh your knowledge.
Usually, basic knowledge is sufficient for our lifestyle programs, which you can learn on the spot without any previous knowledge. However, these basic skills are very important to complete your project successfully and to enjoy your trip to the fullest, as you will also come into contact with locals who hardly speak English.
You can find more about the requirements on the individual program pages.
In some of our lifestyle programs it is possible to take a language course parallel to the program. The courses then take place with one of our language teachers in the form of private lessons in the morning, before, or in the afternoon, after working in the program. In this case, the course includes 5 lessons per week. An accompanying course is available for the Diving, Cooking and Surfing program.
For our Sailing program, it is recommended that you attend an intensive 2-week language course in a major city at the beginning of your trip before starting the program. The 2-week course consists of 20 lessons per week, which take place in a small group of international participants.
We have carefully selected our partner language schools in each location and checked them against our standards. We work with smaller language schools that are not concerned with masses of students, but rather focus on personalized attention and quick learning effects. They are usually very family-oriented institutions. In addition to classes, the schools offer extracurricular activities where you will quickly connect with your fellow students as well as the Latin American culture. Take a salsa lesson with other volunteers or take a cooking class and learn how to prepare local specialties.
All our language schools are centrally located and within walking distance of your accommodation.
