Whether you have a long summer break or a short Easter recess, practicing your Spanish during your holidays can be a great way to advance your language skills. In this blog, we’ll provide you with tips on how to make the most of your downtime to enhance your Spanish proficiency.

Traveling to a Spanish-speaking country

Undoubtedly, one of the best options for practicing your Spanish while on vacation is to travel to a Spanish-speaking country. Being immersed in the culture and language of the place will provide a natural and spontaneous way to learn the language. Additionally, this experience will motivate you to continue studying Spanish once you return home.

Light reading in Spanish

The second advice we provide is to dedicate time to reading light books in Spanish. Vacations can be a good time to immerse yourself in a new book. Instead of choosing heavy and complicated reading, opt for something lighter that you can enjoy without pressure. This activity will allow you to advance your understanding of Spanish in a relaxed manner.

Listening to Spanish songs

We consider it of great importance to listen to Spanish songs and learn the lyrics. Music can facilitate the learning of new words and grammatical structures. Take advantage of your vacation to explore Spanish music and learn in a playful way.

A Spanish immersion course

Finally, in this blog, we advise you to take a Spanish course with LAE Madrid (La Aventura Española). Our intensive Spanish course in Madrid offers total immersion in Spanish, with daily classes and cultural activities included. It’s the ideal option for those who want to dedicate part of their vacation time to learning the language. On the other hand, if you are not in Madrid, you can opt for individual online Spanish classes, so no matter where you are on vacation, improving your Spanish skills won’t be a problem.

Next, with the arrival of good weather, in this blog we want to show you 4 Spanish proverbs related to spring, which will be of great help to deepen your learning of Spanish.

“La primavera, la sangre altera”

This proverb alludes to the changes in behavior that the new season brings. It reflects the idea of an awakening of nature and people with the arrival of spring.

“Hasta el cuarenta de mayo, no te quites el sayo”

The proverbs about spring are not only poetic expressions but also reflect society’s connection to nature and weather. “Hasta el cuarenta de mayo no te quites el sayo” is an example of a proverb that conveys the necessary caution regarding temperature changes during spring. This proverb, which refers to a traditional piece of clothing, remains relevant in everyday conversation.

“La lluvia en Sevilla, es una maravilla”

Proverbs are a reflection of the culture and literature of a specific era. “La lluvia en Sevilla es una maravilla” not only expresses the value of rain in a specific region (Seville), but also has a cinematic origin, demonstrating the influence of culture on the creation and spread of these expressions.

We invite you to read this truly interesting article about the origin of the proverb.
