Summer camp participants study either Spanish or English. Our summer camps and junior programs in Granada and Sevilla are for international students only, meaning that only Spanish classes are available. At the rest of our camps which mix 40% international students with 60% Spanish students, both Spanish and English are offered. Learn more about our language classes here: Summer Language Courses
Of course! Our language classes are available at 6 different levels ranging from total beginner to proficiency.
In addition to having university degrees and the Certificate of Teaching Ability (CAP), our hand-picked language teachers are highly qualified, energetic and have experience teaching young people of all ages. They implement a variety of approaches, techniques and activities that aim to reach out to every learning type and age group and ensure that learning is fun.
On the very first day of camp, participants will take a written and oral language test to determine their corresponding language levels. The results of these tests are immediate, meaning that just after the test all students will be grouped by target language, level and age into the appropriate language course. This gives students the opportunity to make the very most out of their language experience!
Will my child be given any textbooks or other study materials? How much do they cost? Can my child keep them?
In addition to a variety of classroom aids and handouts, we do give each student a kit of academic materials on the first day of class. The kits, which are designed for each age group and subdivided into language levels, consist mainly of a textbook and workbook. It is included in the program price and is for your child to keep.
To ensure individualized attention and optimal learning, we have established a maximum of 14 students per classroom.
Students will have four classes every morning before lunch from Monday to Friday. Each lesson lasts 45 minutes. Once classes let out and lunch is eaten, students will spend their afternoons involved in a variety of other activities, ranging from sports and games to cultural visits and workshops.
