Course K

Spanish and Drumming


The Spanish element of this course is exactly the same as Course A, with two grammar classes and two conversation classes daily. You will have 2 one to one and 1 group drumming lessons per week. Spanish classes are in the morning, and drumming in the afternoon. The drumming classes are held at walking distance from the school.  A wonderful opportunity to learn more about the well known Uruguayan Carnival.The classes are available at all levels, from total beginners to advanced, the teacher will adapt the programme accordingly. On the first day, you will be accompanied to the rumming school, introduced to the teacher, and instructed on how to get there independently for the rest of the classes (a short walk away).
