What students liked about Corazón Cuba, Havana
The team was young and dynamic. There was always someone there, in case if problems, or just to talk. My Spanish teacher had just the right mix of fun and seriousness to motivate the entire group to peak performance. I grew so fond of the people that the farewell was really hard.

Other comments: The partner school in Trinidad was very nice and, concerning the quality of teaching & classroom, better organized than in Havana.
Location, food provided - especially the yummy breakfast, the guys took us out to a dance club and also to the Labour Day parade. Friendly staff.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Make the most of the cultural tours and extra excursions, it's not very easy to get to the beach etc by yourself, so let the school do the organising for you. They'll also organise your wider travel for you but it will not be the cheapest way to do it as bargains on accommodation are to be found when you arrive at your destination.
Other comments: A good way to experience Havana with a ready made group of friends. There are cheaper hostels but you get what you pay for. If you're not sure about dance classes or want a mix of dance and cultural tours in the afternoons just book your language classes & accommodation as you can add on dance & tours later.
Friendly attitude of the teaching staff. Opportunity to interact with people from so many different countries

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Wear comfortable shoes on all walks especially the original orientation walk which is quite long. Get to know the other students right away-they will help you so much.
Other comments: Have each student bring 1-2 Dry erase markers-they get a lot of use and dry up quickly. Distribute a decent map and include local restaurants and addresses on it. A list of close sites that are within walking distance would be great. A basic word/phrase list for all students would also be helpful. Overall a wonderful and unforgettable experience
This program was safe, adventurous and educational. I enjoyed the multicultural student body!
