Christmas is one of the most exciting times of the year, however, getting everything ready for this year's season can also be stressful. Finding the right gift for friends, colleagues, partners and relatives is challenging, as well as time consuming.
We would like to give you some ideas for those that love the Spanish language as much as we do.
1. A weekend in Spain
Enjoying the culture and being in contact with locals is the best way of learning. Why not enjoying a couple of days visiting Madrid? Or relaxing in Mallorca? Or skiing in Sierra Nevada? We are sure this would be an amazing present and you could enjoy it as well!
2. A Spanish course
An opportunity to learn or brush up the language can be an excellent present. The Language House offers different courses and levels starting in January.
You can join one of the groups here: Read more.
A one to one learning experience will make your gift more special and unique. Remember that in Christmas time your school offers this amazing deal: 5 hour vouchers for £45! Don't miss this deal!
3. A meal in a Spanish restaurant
If you like the Spanish language, we are sure you will love the Spanish food! If you live in Liverpool you can find plenty of restaurants with typical Spanish food as tapas, paella, chorizo, pinchos, tortilla... A meal in one of these restaurants can be a great present as well as an amazing experience. Our top 3 in Liverpool are:

5. A Spanish book
Spanish literature is full of great writers... for those that love reading, a book in Spanish language would be a great gift. Some of the most representative authors are García Márquez, Vargas Llosa, Isabel Allende, Cortázar or Carlos Fuentes.
