The Foundation is an excellent place to improve your Spanish. Although there are many people who speak English, they will prefer that you use Spanish to help you in the learning process. In addition, they will provide you with conversation exchanges with Spanish speakers and will organize many cultural activities in Spanish to enrich and diversify your experience.
