SUMMER, AUTUMN AND SPRING HOLIDAY COURSES
We have set up our SPANISH JUNIOR PROGRAMMES for children and teenagers to study and practise all five skills of the Spanish language in the lessons. Enjoy themselves and have fun taking part in well organised and entertaining activities and sports. Live a life experience with their welcoming and friendly host families. Know and discover Asturias historical heritage and its impressive scenery.
Junior lessons are designed to focus on building and practising students’ communication skills. Our expert, friendly and profesional teachers always take in consideration the fact that motivation and enjoying the learning process, are critical requirements for students to obtain the best results. They use communicative and task approach methodology complemented with authentic materials and the use of language in real-life situations, visits to markets and museums, surveys, touring the most representative places in the city, project work, etc.
On first day at our school students attend a welcome and orientation session and non-beginners take a placement test. On the last day every student receives an end-of-course certificate and a full report.
* Students can also take specific lessons to prepare the Instituto Cervantes DELE examinations.
