About El Cuélebre

MUCH MORE THAN JUST LEARNING SPANISH: LIVING AND DREAMING IN SPANISH.

MUCH MORE THAN JUST YOUR TEACHERS: YOUR FRIENDS AND HOSTS.

El Cuélebre is our home and is also your home. But it is much more than that, it is a place to relax and breathe the purest air of Spain, to enjoy and to learn, to communicate in Spanish and to get to know the culture of the most real and authentic Spain.

In the courses at El Cuélebre you won’t just find Spanish classes. What we offer you is to live in Spanish. In El Cuélebre you won’t have just classes, but you will also eat.... in Spanish; you will go on a hike... in Spanish; you will watch movies... in Spanish; you will set out your points of view... in Spanish; you will play... in Spanish; you will drink wine, or beer, or pure water of the mountains of Somiedo, or whatever you want... in Spanish; you will read... in Spanish; you will even dream... in Spanish (even though that doesn’t totally depend on us). So, you will live some unforgettable days in Spanish, while developing and consolidating your vocabulary, your ability to speak and understand, your grammar, everything.

And all this with an exclusive and personalized dedication on our part: our courses are designed for a maximum of two people*. This means that no-one will ever interrupt you while you are speaking, and that you won’t just speak whenever and as much as you want, but in many occasions you will have no alternative but to do so! You will have the option of coming here alone, with a friend, with your partner, with whoever you want, and we will adapt everything to your needs.

*One person, or 2 or 3 people coming together: couples, families and friends.
The minimum age is 18. We accept 16 year olds accompanied by adults.


About us
OUR NAMES ARE ALFREDO AND JIMENA AND WE ARE TWO SPANISH TEACHERS
we are both well qualified (we are both certified to teach Spanish as a Foreign Language and we both have Master Degrees in Languages). But above all, we are in love with languages, with their teaching and also with their learning.
In different ways, we have spent all our lives teaching and learning languages. Right before our adventure with El Cuélebre, we were living in Galway (Ireland), where we lived for over five unforgettable years teaching Spanish in our own School: Sancho Panza Spanish School. (2002-2007). We came back to our country to live in the mountains of Northern Spain, in Somiedo natural park (Asturias), and to initiate a new adventure in which we would like to get you also involved: we would like you to be our guest in our home, and to teach you at the same time our mother tongue and everything we know about our culture and our customs, in an entertaining and amusing way.

About our courses
OUR STUDENTS' REVIEWS
EL CUÉLEBRE IS SITUATED IN THE MOUNTAINS OF ASTURIAS, IN NORTHERN SPAIN
Asturias is a region of Spain that is still free from the massive package tourism that crowds and stifles other parts of Spain. It is a totally genuine region in which you will be able to get to know the life and real customs of the most exciting Spain. Inside Asturias, El Cuélebre is to be found in a very special place, a braña vaqueira called La Peral (photos), in the heart of Somiedo Natural Park.
