Language Courses for ‘Young at Heart’ mature students (50 years+ over)
Our language schools attract language students of all ages and all nationalities.
However, for more mature students who prefer to learn a language with people of a similar age, we offer 'Club 50' language courses in Spanish, French, Italian and German.
These holiday language courses are ideal for mature students and senior citizens who wish to combine a language course with a range of cultural activities and excursions, mixing exclusively with students of a similar age
There are normally 15 or 20 language lessons every week. All teachers are fully qualified and experienced in the teaching their language to foreign students. The teaching methods are professional and ‘communicative’ and with more emphasis on speaking than writing skills, though writing skills are also covered. The main aim is to enable students to communicate in the language, at whatever level – and for the lessons to be enjoyable!
Most ‘Club 50+’ courses run at several levels. On the first day of your course you will take a level test, unless you are a complete beginner, in which case you will start in a complete beginners’ group. So, whether you want to take a Spanish course in Spain, a French course in France, an Italian course in Italy or a German course in Germany, we will make sure that the group you are placed in is suitable for your level, whether you be a complete beginner, or an advanced learner.
For mature students wishing to completely immerse themselves in the language and culture of a particular country, our schools offer accommodation with carefully selected host families. Some schools offer "Executive host family" accommodation, with private bathrooms.
However, for those students who prefer not to live with a host family, we also offer high standard accommodation in private studio apartments, on-site residences and in hotels.
The on-site residences normally have private en-suite bathrooms in all rooms, as well as swimming pools. These residences are available for Club 50+ students at our schools in Malaga and Nerja, for example.
A special program of cultural activities is included with every Club 50+ language course including excursions, guided walks and such activities as wine tasting, cookery lessons, dinners out, theatre trips and dancing.
Optional airport transfers can be arranged for an additional charge.
Mature students in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s are naturally welcome to attend our standard language courses. These courses are suitable for adults of all ages.
Most students on these courses are in their twenties, but there are normally also a certain number of more mature students in their thirties, forties, fifties and older.
