We came to Valdelavilla for the free food and accomodation - we left with new friends and a great experience.
The company organising this program is Vaughan. They operate in 2 locations in spain and one in Tuscany. Essentially English is the only language to be spoken once the program begins so you dont need to speak spanish at all. The program generally attracts business people from spain or italy with an intermediate level of english and a varied group of english speakers from all over the world to take part in one to one activities and group activities. Its very similar to a big school camp (in a good way).
Richelle and I met some cool people that we have organised to see again after the program, learned heaps about spain from some real spaniards - not something you could easily do as a regular tourist and generally had fun.
Our drama skills were put to the test, with Richelle stealing the show on a number of nights.. on and off stage, but ironically at the awards ceremony it was me that won the most entertaining Anglo (english speaker) award. I blame the free vino at meal times.
I would recommend this program to anyone with a week up their sleeve when in spain.
