Granada is most famously known for the Alhambra, a breathtaking palace reflecting Granada’s historic Moorish influence. This influence runs right through the city and can be seen in it's architecture, culture and narrow winding cobblestone streets. Granada is the capital of the province and is home to one of Spain’s greatest universities. Despite being a small city, with over 60,000 students Granada is a bustling place with a vibrant and lively atmosphere. With cafés, restaurants, bars and terraces all offering a variety of tapas and other local treats, Granada is the perfect place to study Spanish and experience southern Spanish culture.
The school is located in the heart of Granada close to the cathedral and at the foot of the Albaicín, 5 minutes walk from the Alhambra. Set in a recently renovated historical building, the school is spread over 4 floors; the ground and first floor house the school office, library, classrooms, computer lab with free internet connection, and a patio for the students to meet. The upper two floors consist of fully equipped apartments and a terrace which offers a panoramic view over Granada.
The core course comprises 20 lessons which concentrate on learning and actively using Spanish. The tuition is very much practice oriented. You will participate in group sessions alongside other students of a similar level, with lessons focused on improving all aspects of the language; speaking listening, reading and writing. There are 4 classes per day and these take place during the morning or afternoon.
In addition to this you will have 10 individual lessons throughout the week. We will ask you before you travel what you would like to cover with your tutor during these individual sessions, for example grammar, a specific thematic topic, conversation or exam practice.
You will be given a written assessment before you travel and a speaking assessment on the first morning before lessons in order to place you in the group most suited to your ability level. Classes have an international flavour and a lively feel because they are grouped by ability not nationality or age.
Optional Social and Cultural Programme
The school offers a range of activities during the week, as well as longer full day excursions at the weekends. These are available for a charge and you can book through reception during your stay. You will be introduced to the activities as part of your induction on your first day. These activities change weekly but include the following:
- Walking Tour of the City
- Flamenco Classes
- Flamenco Show in the Caves
- Alhambra Visit (subject to availability)
For students wanting to completely immerse themselves in the Spanish language and culture we recommend that you stay with one of our carefully selected Spanish host families. They will not only introduce you to the Spanish way of life and help you practise the Spanish language but will also give you a taste of local and delicious regional specialities. The host families are situated near to the school and provide half board accommodation (breakfast & evening meal) from the Sunday before your course starts to the Saturday after it finishes. Subject to availability, an extra day on one side of your trip may be available on request to facilitate flight dates.
Students of 16 years or older also have the option of staying in one of the school self catering residences with other international students; single rooms are available.
