Learning a language can be very difficult after leaving education. Thanks to Sign Up, the language institution, learning Spanish has become a real vacation. Sign Up are now providing 2 or 4 week LGBT holiday breaks to the beautiful Spanish city of Seville. Once there, you’ll enjoy Spanish language classes with a focused LGBT context.

The trip includes several outings to LGBT-friendly spots in Seville with the chance to explore the gay scene and socialise with the local LGBT community. The trip also includes excursions to some of the most stunning parts of Spain, including the Roman city of Italica, where you can get lost in the famous Roman ruins of the city. Capture Seville is located in the hottest region of Spain, which makes this opportunity the perfect summer break. Sign Up provide several dates throughout the year for this experience and even offer the chance to go during Seville’s Pride festival. Seville’s open-air culture and amazing weather makes bar hopping and exploring the city a much more interesting and fun experience, with a great selection of gay and gay-friendly bars and clubs. The opportunity to learn Spanish while being on holiday, with an LGBT focus, doesn’t come along often. Sign Up are determined to “provide a fun, respectful and unforgettable experience in Seville,” with your best interests at heart so you could request specific things to do or customise your visit as much as you’d like.
