Last 3 programmes for 2013 + Meet Vaughantown 'veterans'­­ at Camino!

  • Nov 3, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • Camino Bar

Good Autumn All, 

Hola a todos - Time for another meetup.  All the newbies...We'd love to meet you!  

Come down on Sunday, 3rd November from 2pm and join us for a cup of Chocolate Caliente or a glass of Rioja.  Meet some of the Vaughantown volunteers who been there, done it, and have lots of stories to tell!

I've got 7 places for November and December up for grabs... 6 days of chit-chat with Spanish professionals who can't wait to meet you (ok, they'll be a bit scared at first but from about day 2 you'll see a difference!).  

You'll get the chance to immerse yourself in the Spanish way of life, meet Spanish people and enjoy 4-star accommodation and full board (+internal transfers) in either Gredos or Segovia for 6 days.  All this, in exchange for speaking English!  How easy is that?

As part of a group of volunteers, you'll be conversing with Spanish professionals in an informal setting to help improve their English skills.  You just need to pay for your flights and any other expenses outside of the 6-day programme. What better chance to meet people from Spain and have a seriously good time.  But don't just take my word for it... 

Viv - "I attended El Rancho in April and had a great experience".

David -  "I have attended six Vaughantown progfammes with my wife and am 
looking to our next in May. I am 66 and my wife is 63.
Wish we had discovered Vaughantown sooner"!!!!

Jenny - "It's very much real. I went in July and am going again next month"

Brian - "We were in El Rancho in November and had a great time"

Also, on 3rd November, you'll get to meet some lovely people who have been to programmes to answer all your questions.  We always have new 'veterans' so please if you've just come back from a programme and you have some time, do come and join us!  

So, here are the latest programme dates and their availability:

November 10-15 - El Rancho, Segovia (3 places left)                                                                       November 24-29 - Gredos, Avila   (2 places left)                                                                             December  8-13 - Gredos, Avila (2 places left) flights for this programme:  as of today return Ryanair flights Stansted-Madrid (Dec 7-Dec 14) are £85 incl tax + 1xcheck-in baggage.

January (limited places)/February/June/July 2014  (places available - mostly half full, see website below for details)

November and December programmes are expected to be filled by next week, so if you would like to participate, just fill in the online application form here: and mention MEETUP in your application.  

March, April and May 2014 programmes are now FULL!  If you want to escape the Winter blues, apply NOW for January and February, they will go very shortly (really they will...) Again check out the available dates for 2014 in the link above.  I would advise booking programmes NOW for next year just to secure your place.  If you need to cancel you can always do so within a month of the programme.  January, February, June, July are available for next year - if you're ready for the Vaughantown experience, BOOK NOW!  

Looking forward to seeing you on 3rd Nov.
