TEENAGER SPANISH COURSE
Our language course is the main focus of the language vacation and is designed to be interesting and entertaining. Our aim is for our teenagers to enjoy themselves whilst learning as much as possible in a short period of time. The methodology is centered on a communicative approach, utilizing diverse techniques to cover the fundamentals of language learning: grammar, speaking, listening, vocabulary, pronunciation, writing & intercultural competence.
Our Teenager Spanish language courses are taught by professional and experienced language teachers. On the first day of class (Monday), your language level will be assessed by taking a placement test (unless your a complete beginner) and based on the results you will be placed in an appropriate class for your level.
During these morning lessons the Spanish and international students are separated; they rejoin in the afternoon and at night for a variety of activities.
Language classes run Monday - Friday each morning:
