Country

This summer camp for teenagers has the beautiful, safe university town of Salamanca as it campus. Spanish classes are run in the mornings while in the afternoons and early evenings a range of excursions, activities and sports complete the day. Accommodation is with local home stay families and the welcome is clearly Spanish! Transfers to and from the airport are included in the price. This programme is teenagers the chance experience Spanish life and culture, improve their linguistic capabilities and make friends from around the world.

The programme follows a rhythm of Spanish lessons Monday - Friday in the mornings, afternoons and evenings dedicated to fun activities both sporting and cultural. Sundays are left free to allow you time with your homestay family.

Spanish class

Spanish class take place every day during the week, and just because it's the summer holidays doesn't mean that there won't be homework to do for the morning! The teachers are fairly demanding and you'll find that they insist on Spanish-only both inside and outside of the classroom while at school.

For the 3 hours of lessons held each day, students will get to look the grammar of the language as well as practise writing, learn new vocabulary and importantly work on their speaking! At the end of the course, there is a certificate for successful completion.
Students are assigned to class based on a level-evaluation test the first day.

Excursions

Saturday is excursion day. Visits around the city are organised and run by the school, students are always accompanied by personnel from the school. These days offer a great opportunity to see more of the city, its attractions and surrounds.

Activities

Afternoon activities, both sporting and cultural, are an important part of this camp for teenagers. With the exception of Sundays, when students are with their families, activities are programmed throughout the week; museums visits, group outings, excursions in and outside of the city. Of course, all activities are run under the supervision of the school, and are a great chance for students to get to know one another outside of the classroom.
