    We used our Spanish lots over the three weeks we spent in Spain after we left you guys and it made our holidays even better. We hope to visit again some time.

    Many thanks for a most enjoyable and rewarding week of Spanish and walks. The Spanish lessons were impressive and I learnt a lot, especially what I did not know!

    ​Our course for beginners was well tailored to all abilities, with lots of oral practice reinforced by short videos and games. Despite the light-hearted approach, we made surprisingly fast progress thanks to the energy and professionalism of our teachers. By the end of the week we had covered all elementary topics necessary for getting around on our own. Panes is an ideal place for practising your Spanish since very few people speak (or wish to speak) English. After a leisurely lunch the afternoon's physical activity was a great way to complement the morning's mental effort - stunning scenery and a lovely guide with more Spanish for us. Finally, the comfortable small family hotel close to the school is run by a charming couple who couldn't be more hospitable. We would without hesitation recommend this holiday.

    I had a most enjoyable week, nice change of scenery, I hope the Spanish has improved a bit, always good to get some practice, revise and pick up a few tips.
    Yolanda was wonderful as a teacher and walk guide, she was attentive to everyone's needs. Wonderful country for walking, so different to Australia. For me it worked very well.

    The teaching was very well organised and varied in style.  The lessons had a good pace and were always fun, each of the three excellent teachers tackling different aspects of our learning and practice.  We gained an impressive vocabulary in the five days and became reasonably adept at composing short sentences and participating in simple conversations.  It was always fun and there was plenty of laughter and joking. The walks in the late afternoon/early evening were also very enjoyable, if a little challenging at times, but our guide was skilled at making sure that all members of the group were comfortable and coping.  The four walks were very varied in their scope and character and all of them yielded spectacular views of mountains, coast and countryside.  In addition the acquisition of Spanish continued in a light-hearted way as we expanded our vocabulary with names of flora and fauna and learned some of the interesting history of the area. All in all it was a most enjoyable week and I highly recommend it.

    Excellent value. The mixture of language learning and physical activity is a great idea and worked well for me. The language teaching was professional, thorough, well-prepared and with a good mixture. The walks were great... Beautiful countryside.

    The style of teaching is fabulous. The games really help. I thought at first when you only spoke Spanish I would never learn but it really works. From the hotel to class to hiking, this has been the best part of my holiday. I think you have a wonderful concept and I would recommend this to anyone.

    Just to let you know that I put my Spanish to good use last night. Went to see the 'Barber of Sevilla' in Bilbao last night. It was sung in Italian but there were surtitles in Spanish projected on to the top of the stage. My vocabulary coped with most of the plot, there were one or two scenes were I had to fill in the missing words from the action on stage.

      'Peak Me' is an invaluable language course tailored for individual abilities. With two excellent teachers for 4 students, the 5-day course of 3-hourly sessions was gently challenging, fun and rewarding.

    review rating 5  I thoroughly enjoyed the Spanish classes and walks in the surrounding areas of Panes. This was reinforced when I realised how much I talked about it as I related the week I spent there, to my friends back home. Right from the start with the booking, I found Ana helpful and professional - answering all my queries and assisting me with the local travel and accommodation arrangements. I hope to visit Panes and the scenic and spectacular region again. Lily Wong, Sydney - Australia
