Introduction about La Casita Spanish School
The purpose of this letter is to introduce you to La Casita Guest House and its spanish language school. The school is run by Patricio Muņoz who is the owner of La Casita and a qualified spanish language instructor.
La Casita is located in the picturesque township of Pucon in southern Chile in South America. Pucon is a four season resort with a population of approximately 8,000 and is often referred to as the adventure capital of Chile. Its landmark feature is the volcano Villarrica which offers climbing opportunities in the summer and skiing in the winter. There are also world-class facilities for such activities as white-water rafting, mountain biking and trekking. La Casita itself is a comfortable [five] bedroom house located in the centre of Pucon with kitchen and laundry facilities as well as internet access and mountain bike hire.
The La Casita Spanish Language School has been running for four years. The school has proven to be extremely successful both in introducing beginners to the spanish language as well as strengthening any existing language skills. Much of the success of the school is due to students not only being tutored in spanish but having the opportunity to live in a chilean family environment. This gives the student the opportunity to not only acquire spanish language skills but to gain an understanding and appreciation of chilean and, as a result, south american culture.
The following is a brief description of the programs that will be offered in 1998:
