Although many language schools use the technique of total immersion by having teachers speak exclusively to students in the target tongue, that immersion often disintegrates outside of the classroom. But not at Ceves Spanish School. The educational hub is located in the middle of Miami, a city known for its Latin American cultural heritage. Following any Spanish-language class, students can practice their listening and speaking skills throughout the community at its endless restaurants, nightclubs, and beaches.
With its home base in Bogotá, Colombia, the staff at United Languages and Media Group has made its way to Miami. Its international presence reinforces its mission of helping students advance their careers and enrich their lives by undertaking the study of a new language. To facilitate this process, they offer Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and English classes both online and in their classrooms.
When it comes to getting fit, it’s no longer about the big, anonymous box gym. These days, the latest fitness craze is one-on-one training, where the goal is to maximize the workouts and help participants achieve their fitness goals faster.

There are no chairs inside Peak Physique, just two stools and a lot of gear to train with. The small, certified staff use various cardio and strength training machines, free weights, resistance tubes and medicine balls to craft body parts to their maximum potential. Other than that, there’s a small changing room and showers, and a bunch of dedicated fitness folks inside, sweating and working hard.
