    Description

    I live in the north of Spain, in SANTANDER, a beautiful city, safe, modern and with history.
    We saw in a house with garden 5 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from the city, we are 4 mom, dad, and my two sons, Alma and Daniel, 15 and 12 years old.
    It is a coastal city in which we can enjoy beautiful landscapes of sea and land, in minutes you can go from being on the beach, to mountain activities.
    Perfect destination to enjoy the summer doing the most varied sports, swimming, running, skating, canoeing or canoeing, sunbathing on fine sand beaches, surfing, windsurfing, tennis, hiking, climbing and more. For those who like it the nightlife or just to know it, there are areas of drinks and music.
    For those who prefer the charm of yesterday Santander has several museums, one of them the famous BOTIN MUSEUM and places of tourist interest, without forgetting our historical culture with the cultural ring of Santander and the prehistoric one with the famous ALTAMIRA CAVES.
    The gastronomy of the region gives us flavors for all tastes that leave no one indifferent and whenever they think of our land, it recalls our exquisite home-made dishes with products from the area.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The travelers would benefit from the cultural exchange knowing firsthand the way of life, the customs, the food, the festivities and all the historical heritage within our reach, in addition to the authentic linguistic immersion that will enrich the learning of a new language or its improvement if you already have some knowledge of Spanish.
    You will learn not only the language as it comes in the books, but the colloquial language that is used informally.
    Also in Santander there are communication groups with which to meet with English speakers and different nationalities, so the cultural exchange will be very beneficial, being fun and multicultural, they are usually Erasmus students, Au pair and conversation assistants from different countries .

    Los viajeros se beneficiarian del intercambio cultural conociendo de primera mano la forma de vida,las costumbres, la comida , las fiestas y todo el patrimonio historico a nuestro alcance, ademas de la inmersion linguistica autentica que enriquecera el aprendizaje de una nueva lengua o su perfeccionamiento si ya tiene algun conocimiento de Español .
    Aprendera no solo el idioma como viene en los libros,si no el lenguaje coloquial que es el que se utiliza informalmente.
    Ademas en Santander hay grupos de comunicacion con los que poder reunirse con personas de habla inglesa y distintas nacionalidades, por lo que el intercambio cultural sera muy beneficioso ,siendo divertido y multicultural, suelen ser estudiantes Erasmus , Au pair y Auxiliares de conversacion de distintos paises.

    What else ...

    In previous years we enjoyed the company of an English girl every year, the experience was very satisfactory. One of them is more calm and familiar so she did many trips and visits in our company, the other girl is more independent and although we did some visits with her, most of her free time I enjoy in the company of other young people of the same language and different nationality and she told us the things that surprised her from other cultures, without a doubt for them and for us it was an unforgettable experience

    En años anteriores disfrutamos de la compañia de una chica inglesa cada año, la experiencia fue muy satisfactoria .Una de ellas es mas tranquila y familiar por lo que hizo muchas salidas y visitas en nuestra compañia, la otra chica es mas independiente y aunque hicimos algunas visitas con ella ,la mayor parte de su tiempo libre lo disfruto en compañia de otras jovenes de su mismo idioma y distinta nacionalidad y nos contaba las cosas que le sorprendian de otras culturas, sin duda para ellas y para nosotros fue una experiencia inolvidable
