As a teacher in the United States, I like to look for affordable trips for my summer holidays. Since my favorite spot to visit is Spain, getting there inexpensively is a tall order. However, last summer I discovered what I like to call “the best kept secret on the planet.” Formerly known as Pueblo Ingles, Diverbo is a company whose objective is to bring Spanish speakers closer to foreign languages and help them lose their fear about speaking English. How is this accomplished? English speaking volunteers from around the world are brought to various venues throughout Spain (and also Germany) to be immersed in a week of English. No Spanish is allowed; so if the extent of your Spanish consists of hola and adios… no worries!
