Spanish course for Young Students, Barcelona(14-18)
Are you aged between 14-18 years and want to learn Spanish during the summer? Then there is no more exciting a location than Barcelona! Its location on the Costa Brava means that Barcelona not only offers all the attractions of a big city, but also has some spectacular beaches. A city famous for its rich, cultural heritage, Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and is steeped in history. From the medieval in the Gothic Quarter to the modernista style of Gaudi, Barcelona is home to some of the most stunning architecture in Spain.
Barcelona is a fantastic location in which to spend your summer holidays, as although it is normally hot and sunny, the cool sea breezes do mean that summers are pleasant. There are plenty of things to see and do whilst in Barcelona, from shopping on La Rambla to visiting one of the many world-class museums. There are also some stunning parks and green spaces, as well as the beautiful marina (where you are sure to see some truly impressive yachts).
Our teenager Spanish course in Barcelona normally takes place in the school residence. The location is very central, close to the crossroads of Passeig de Gracia and Diagonal, two popular and central roads in Barcelona. This means that not only will you have Las Ramblas within easy walking distance, but there is also easy access to the rest of the city and beaches by public transport.
The modern building offers fantastic facilities, including a multi-purpose room which is used for games, videogames and film showings, cafeterias, outdoor gym and sunbathing terrace.
Courses in Barcelona
This programme is suitable for students of all levels of Spanish. On the morning of your first day at the school you will take a level test, to make sure that you are placed in the most suitable group, with students of a similar level to yourself. As far as possible our Spanish school will do their best to mix the nationalities in classes. However, as the courses we offer are total immersion courses, you can be sure that the only language spoken in class will be Spanish! This will help you to make the maximum amount of progress possible and will also increase your confidence in speaking the language.
The course consists of 20 group lessons per week. Each Spanish lesson lasts 45 minutes and you will usually have 4 lessons per day, from Monday to Friday.
All course materials are included in the price.
Choose between student residence and host family accommodation for your stay in Barcelona, both of which are offered on a full-board basis.
The bright and modern student residence offers on-site accommodation. There is a mixture of single and twin rooms, all of which have an en-suite bathroom and are air-conditioned. There is also WI-FI in all rooms and common areas. In addition to international students learning Spanish, there will be Spanish students staying on-site learning English, providing excellent opportunities to socialise and put your language skills into practice!
For those looking for complete linguistic and cultural immersion, we also offer host family accommodation. Our supportive and friendly host families will speak with you in Spanish and provide a great insight into day to day life in a vibrant Spanish city. Please note that students who stay with host families have to book the school’s bus service at extra cost. This is only available Monday to Friday so it is necessary for host family students to make their own way to the school for weekend activities.
This programme has been specially designed for students of your age and, therefore, offers a high level of supervision. You will be supervised whilst in lessons, on activities and in your accommodation. If you stay with a host family, you will be expected to make your own way to and from the school at the weekend, although your hosts will ensure you understand the way and you will normally be able to travel with your roommate(s).
Activities will be offered on a daily basis on this programme and all will be fully-supervised. The exact programme will vary slightly from week to week, but, to give you an idea, some examples of typical activities include: a guided walk of the city; beach games; workshops (arts and crafts, dance, etc.); welcome parties; tapas tours; jazz evening; bowling; and excursions to local places of interest such as Sitges and Montserrat.
If you are aged 14-18 years and wish to improve your Spanish and make friends from all over the world in a stunning city on the coast, then this programme in Barcelona is perfect for you! Activities are arranged on a daily basis, and you can choose between host family and residence accommodation.
