Every Week a "Tertulia" in Granada

Every Thursday at an Arabic tea shop or "tetería" in the historic neighborhood, "El Albayzin," there is a group of students that meet to practice English, to meet new people and to have good conversation. It´s called "Tertulia" and it was started 10 years ago by Agape. It´s purpose is to serve, assist and connect with students that want to improve their English in a low-key environment and to be able to create a community of cultural exchange. 

Over the last 10 years, Agape Campus Granada has served thousands of students, helping them make friends and improve their English, not only Spanish students but also many international students, from France, Germany, Slovakia, Mexico, Chile and the U.S., to name a few.

Alpha groups have been started through the relationships from the "tertulia." This year there is a loyal community of Spanish students that are excited about participating in these activities and others that we host. We are also hoping to launch an "Existe Más Mundo" (More World Exists) group this spring with some of these students that we met at "tertulia."
