From the 30th September to 2nd October, in Puerto de la Cruz, FEDELE held the ¡VAMOS! Español en España FEDELE Workshop. This year Japan came as a special guest thanks to the collaboration of Turespaña and their invitation to Japanese agencies. More than forty representatives of Spanish schools from all over Spain and thirty international consultants specialising in language stays abroad attended the event.
The workshop received sponsorship and collaboration from the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, the
Puerto de la Cruz town council, Turespaña, Instituto Cervantes, SIELE, ICEF, Guard Me, RESA, Higher Education Marketing, Generator Hostels, StudyTravel and Schools & Agents.
¡VAMOS! Español en España FEDELE Workshop is a professional event for FEDELE member schools and agents specialising in language tourism. The first such event was held in 1999. This year, including both collaborating companies and international agents, more than a hundred people have taken part, from Italy, Holland, Poland, South Korea, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Spain, Slovakia, France, Japan, Serbia, Georgia, Thailand and Russia.
The innovative format of the workshop, which is based on social networking, included cultural, touristic and gastronomic activities which enabled participants to get to know the best cultural and language programmes in Spain at the same time as enjoying emblematic places in Tenerife.
