What we're about
Can't get to Spain or Latin America this weekend?
¡No hay problema, amigo!
Join us for "Spanish by Bicycle" "El español en bicicleta" a Spanish language immersion tour of Central Park and "el barrio," in New York City...all by bicycle, all geared to your level! First, Richard, your Lingo Planet guide will introduce you to the parts of your bicycle all in Spanish. After a brief talk we head to Central Park, where more language opportunities await you.
From Central Park, we're off to "el barrio," sometimes called "Spanish Harlem," where you'll experience the culture of the neighborhood, meet the locals, and visit places like a Latino music shop, a community garden and the biggest sundial in town!
"y para comer"...you'll eat in a local restaurant, where you can get your "mofongo, mondongo, plátanos, pollo, pernil, ensalada, sopa, arroz con habichuelas," or anything else your heart desires. Next, we head back to the bike shop via the west side of Central Park, but this time an enjoyable language reality check awaits you.
It's 6 hours of language learning and fun challenges for all levels.
So what's the catch? (and there's only one) - You've got to pledge to speak the most Spanish you can throughout the tour...even if it's two words (We'll help you be creative!)
Price $85: Includes bicycle, helmet (required) and six hour language immersion tour
