Participants from all over the world exchange conversation with Spaniards and in return for their time and their input, have their full board and lodging covered by the program. The Spaniards, meanwhile, get to improve their fluency in the quickest, most intensive manner possible on earth. Both groups prosper, exchanging culture, conversation, knowledge and friendship during a very special week.

Typical Day

All programs are six days long and run from Sunday morning to Friday afternoon. Although structured, the week´s schedule is very relaxed and allows for participants to explore the countryside, nearby towns and enjoy the venue´s amenities. Each day begins at 9 a.m. for breakfast, and one to one conversations run through to lunch at 2 p.m. . After lunch, participants have free time until 5 p.m., where group activities and one-to-ones proceed until entertainment hour at 8 p.m.: theater, comedy, cultural presentations, karaoke and jokes. Dinner is a nine p.m.

Age range, type of group

Over 3,000 volunteers from all over the world have come to Spain to take part in this cultural holiday program: writers, doctors, social workers, backpackers, executives, musicians and students. The variety is endless: participants from over 12 different countries, between ages 23-80, and a healthy mix of temperaments and personalities. Founder Richard Vaughan has been featured in CNN, Frommer´s, Irish Times and dozens of international publications acclaiming the uniqueness of the holiday initiative.

Sleeping and meals

You will pay for your flights to and from Madrid and any accommodation before and after the program. Our company will cover all the expenses as soon as the program officially starts on Sunday morning. Vaughan Systems provides you with accommodation and three meals a day in either venue, transfers to and from the towns from Madrid and accident insurance during the course of the program. We also invite you to a tapas sampling orientation on Saturday afternoon where you get acquainted with the volunteers in your group.

Other Information

VaughanTown offers participants two picturesque venues: a sprawling 4-star country-style hotel at the foothills of the Gredos mountain range in Avila and a 4 star Hospederia de Monfragüe located at the gates of the Monfragüe National park in Caceres. Both venues offer the same instrinsic program in two different and equally enchanting settings. Whether you prefer the modernity of a 4-star complex with amenities such as a swimming pool, spa and sports facilities, or the antiquity of a 12th century monastery bathed in Romanesque architecture with fresh garden produce for your meals, both venues offer the same relaxed and stimulating holiday program.
