The beautiful city of Valencia offers our Young Students aged 14 to 17 years a summer programme of Spanish classes in a warm climate, with the chance to make international friends, get to know a new country and culture and take part in an exciting array of cultural activities, games, sports, visits and excursions.
Our school offers excellent, high-quality, modern facilities right in the centre of the city in a private building with roof-top terrace and interior patio. The teachers are professional and motivated to teach Spanish to young students in a fun and dynamic way, with the use of modern teaching methods and accompanied by a varied and interesting daily programme of extra-curricular activities, especially for teenagers.
Students will receive 20 Spanish classes each week, in groups of just 10 students maximum per class. Each lesson is 55 minutes in duration. The teachers have years of experience specialising in teaching Spanish to foreign students and the lessons are made to be interesting and entertaining, whilst incorporating a wide variety of up-to-date teaching methods and materials. The main focus is on helping students to communicate and to speak with confidence, regardless of their Spanish level! A lot of the learning is done outside of the classrooms, during a varied programme of social and cultural activities and excursions. This is a wonderful summer course for teenagers, in a lively and attractive Spanish city.
Students have the chance to get to know the local people and to practise their Spanish as much as possible with our Spanish host families. The accommodation includes all meals and a shared room, together with another international student of the same age group. All of the families live close to the school and have a lot of experience in caring for foreign students. The school staff carefully selects the families and has a long-standing relationship with them, ensuring a comfortable and welcoming environment.
There are daily activities organised by the school in the afternoons, with full-day excursions every Saturday. There are tours of the city and trips to the beach, in addition to sports games and competitions, barbecues, cultural visits to places in and around the city and dance classes. The activities are an exciting part of the programme, giving students the chance to discover the city, to meet the friendly and welcoming local people of Valencia, to practise their Spanish in all types of situations and to find out what Spain and its culture is really like!
The teenagers are supervised both in class and throughout the activities programme, by the school’s motivated, young and professional team of staff and teachers. During the evenings and on Sundays the students will be looked after by their host families. There is also a 24-hour telephone number in case of any emergencies or any problems.
A 2-way airport transfer service, on arrival and departure, is included in the cost of the programme.
