CAROL WEB NUEVA QUIEN SOMOSCAROL BRADSHAW: FOUNDER

Carol, a native of the United Kingdom is the founder of Grupos Organizados. She has over twenty years of experience working with Spanish students. She wanted to give students the opportunity to improve their spoken English and what better way to do this than by being immersed in the language for a five day stay. She wanted students to see the enjoyment they could get out of learning a new language. She did this by including outdoor activities. This allowed the students to learn the language while having the time of their lives. The philosophy of this company is total immersion in the language and it has been proven successful for the last twenty years.
