Lessons

Students have 20 Spanish lessons per week (1 lesson lasts 45 minutes), from Monday to Friday, 9.30 to 13.00. All levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced.

The main aim is that the student be able to communicate in Spanish as quickly as possible. This is why the lessons are very interactive. Students learn to be independent in everyday situations and develop the four following skills: written expression & comprehension and spoken expression & comprehension. There are generally 12 students per class.

Our teachers are all native Spanish speakers and have qualified to teach Spanish as a foreign language.

Activities

As well as 20 lessons per week, students have a varied activity programme, including cultural visits, games, sports activities and a half day excursion per week. For example: beach games, water park, karaoke, treasure hunts, disco nights, flamenco, sports...

Some activities are not included in the price shown, so it is worth bringing a small amount of pocket money to pay for some activities on site. Here is a (non-exhaustive) list of what may be on offer:

Destination

Discover Andalusia

Almuñécar is right in the heart of the tropical coast, less than an hour from Malaga and Grenada. Here the mountainous countryside contrasts with the sea and the valley rich in advocados, sugar apples, mangos, papayas, and bananas. This exotic fruit growth is possible thanks to the region's exceptional climate: between 18ºC in the winter and 25ºC in the summer

The town, nick-named Hins-al-Monacar (" city surrounded by mountains "), is one of the most magical places on this tropical coast: the unshakeable mountains gaze across the crystal waters of the Mediterranean.

School

Our partner school in Almuñécar is a modern building, featuring 7 large classrooms and is only 100 metres from the beach.

The school offers the following services: free Internet access, borrowing school materials from the library, a personal tutor for each pupil, an information file with a town map, a programme of activities and points of interest, etc...

Accommodation

Hotel

For these summer camps, we offer accommodation in a 2 or 3* hotel on half-board.

The hotel is located 100m from the beach and offers double or triple rooms, equipped with bathrooms, air conditioning, a swimming pool and a solarium. Meals are in the restaurant on the ground floor. It is a buffet with drinks included.
