We love Cultural Events and Workshops at Hablo Español, as they are great learning opportunities to improve your Spanish at the same time you extend your knowledge about the culture from the countries where the language is spoken.
The last 10th of June we organised our first Spanish Cultural Night where we screened a film called ”The Writer From a Country without Bookstores” and we had Spanish tapas and drinks. It was a success, our attendants really enjoyed the night and the movie. Don’t stop visiting our website to get all the updates about our next events!

Una elefanta sobre la tela de una araña
A film director in his 70s senses that the sly death is approaching. So he decides to make fun of the life in what will be his last film. To do so, he will use a 108-year-old quixotic old woman, with an immense desire to die. And three young artists; a musician, a painter and an actress, who will travel to a small lost town in La Mancha (Spain) inspired by the adventures of Simona, that woman who will reveal to them the absurd meaning of existence.
“Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbor is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.”
— Paolo Coelho
