VaughanTown is a non-paid, volunteer program where Native English speaking participants exchange conversation for room and board in the heart of the Spanish countryside.
You will come to Spain under the umbrella of Vaughan Systems, the largest in-company language training firm in Spain. Our 300 trainers provide more than 350,000 hours per year of language training to over 5,000 executives and technical personnel in more than 520 companies, with such names as Microsoft, Ericsson, Accenture, John Deere, Ford, Pfizer Labs, Johnson & Johnson, Coca Cola, Heineken, Exxon-Mobil, and a very long etcetera. In our classes, we build for our Spanish executives the foundation, main pillars, and beams. At VaughanTown, we will want *YOU* to expose them to "the real McCoy" and, in essence, finish off that roof for them.
Hotel de la Villa is located an hour and a half away from Madrid in a quaint town called Pedraza, a medieval town declared a National Historical Heritage site in 1951. It is part of the province of Segovia. The entire villa is surrounded by a wall with only one entry, a big door made of black poplar wood. Once inside, you will a XIII century fortress and prison, which is why it has become a very popular tourist attraction.
You will not tire of strolling it never ending cobbled streets and emblazoned houses that form a medieval urban setting where every corner must be seen, from the Puerta de la Villa (town gate) to the far end of the village, crowned by a castle. This castle is currently a museum of the famous Spanish painter, Zuloaga.
