Barcelona’s charm attracts many tourists of all ages to the second largest city in Span. The school is located closely to the famous Rambles, where you can go for a lunchtime stroll. The famous artist Antoni Gaudí has put his mark on Barcelona and you’ll see many of his works while there, like Sagrada Família. Exploring the cultural aspects of the city are an important part of the language holiday. After studying Spanish, you can relax on the beach. Most of the leisure time activities take place here. But sightseeing and the history of Barcelona are explored, too; activities can include a visit of the Dalí museum, Barrio Gótico or Sagrada Família.

Language course

Language course Spanish

Without the performance pressure from their home schools, students learn that communicating in the foreign language and application of the studied material is enjoyable. A class consists of up to 15 students which are thought at levels A1 to C1. Students take a placement exam on the first day of school in order to allocate them to the right class (possible to take the test online in advance). Besides grammar, communication is focal point. Able and qualified members of staff conduct all classes. Course materials, the course book and a notepad are supplied.

Journey

Journey by plane (booked by us)

The flight is booked by us and the students are welcomed at the security check, where supervision starts, and taken to their accommodation. On departure, the supervision ends with dropping the students off at check-in / security check at the airport. The airport shuttle to and from the accommodation is included in the holiday price.

Journey by plane (self-arranged)

Self-arranged arrival is also possible, please coordinate with us in advance. The airport shuttle to and from the accommodation from the airport Barcelona EL Prat is included in the holiday price.

Accommodation

Halls of residence

In the halls of residence in Barcelona students stay in twin or triple rooms which are cleaned weekly. A common kitchen and a terrace are available. Bedding is available, but you need to bring your own towels. The walk from halls of residence to town and campus takes approx. 30 min. We recommend the halls of residence for 14 to 16 year olds, as it’s easier to make friends and meet new people.

Homestay

The best way to get to know the culture and language of a country is to stay with a host family. Here you can apply your newly learnt skills and practice your communication skills. You normally stay in twin or triple rooms. The host families are carefully checked and selected.

Board

Full board

When selecting homestay, the host family provided breakfast and dinner. Lunch is on campus for all students. For students staying at halls of residence, breakfast and dinner are also on campus. The meals provide the students with an excellent opportunity to practice their communication skills with the host family and/or international students.

Supervision

Holiday including supervision

The supervision by international teamers of our partner school starts and ends in the public part of the respective airport. From then onwards, the trained teamers are available 24/7. Additionally they accompany the students to all activities, evening programme and trips.
