As our readers will already know, ¡Vamos! FEDELE Workshop is one of the most important events for the Spanish as a Foreign Language sector and an essential event for schools and agencies working with language stays abroad in Spain. The workshop is usually held in autumn and this year Tenerife has been chosen to host the event which will take place from 30th September to 2nd October.
Unlike other events, at ¡Vamos! a lot of value is placed on networking and other dynamics for getting to know what the member schools have to offer. Participants will have the opportunity during the event to get to know exceptional destinations for learning Spanish and at the end of the workshop, different proposals for familiarisation trips.
