Valencia, Spain's third largest city, is on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. This beautiful Spanish language school is located deep in the heart of Valencia's old town, just a step away from all the interesting sights and services. The four storey former palace has been carefully renovated into a stunning language school that compliments history with modernism. Inside the school you will see walls from its 11th Century Arab roots which penetrate through the classrooms and open spaces, creating both an atmosphere of history and mystique. There are 28 classrooms, all of which are filled with natural light, have full air-conditioning facilities and interactive whiteboards. If studying in a stunning location rich in history isn't enough, during breaks students can also make the most of the relaxed, well equipped social spaces, use the computers and wifi, enjoy the reading area with books and magazines, relax on a choice of two patios or bask in the sunshine on the breathtaking roof terrace, complete with sun loungers, fruit trees and a shower in which to cool off.
The language course comprises 20 lessons of 50 minutes length each, which concentrate on learning and actively using Spanish. The school caters for all abilities from beginners to more advanced Spanish speakers. 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. During the afternoons there is a varied programme of supervised leisure activities, visits and excursions to introduce you to Spanish culture, sports and lifestyles.
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.
At the welcome meeting on the first day of your course you will receive a detailed weekly programme of activities with a timetable and meeting points. The Summer Camp for 13 – 15 Year Olds offers activities every weekday afternoon, on some evenings and a full day excursion every Saturday (please request to stay for an extra night on booking if you wish to join the Saturday excursion).
