LEARN SPANISH IN THE MOUNTAINS
This week is recommended for all those who want to learn and enjoy Spanish language, culture and Spanish 'every day life'.
It's total languague immersion.
Picturesque villages in the heart of Parque Natural Sierra de Espadán and the River Mijares (Valencia Region) will be your classroom and 'base camp' for a week.
Our goal is that you learn Spanish in a natural environment.
3 hours a day you learn and practice Spanish with native teachers specialized in teaching Spanish as a foreign language and accredited by the Instituto Cervantes.
Classes are in Spanish from the beginning. We work with all the skills (oral and written comprehension and oral and written expression), since the important thing is to communicate. Each session is related to the activity that takes place in the afternoon.
So the learning is throughout the entire day. In addition, the materials are varied and adapted to the needs of the student.
The maximum number of students is 8 and the minimum is 3.
All students must have the same level of Spanish in each group.
We offer the possibility of learning Spanish online before and after this experience in nature. It will help us to maximize your progress once you are in the Sierra.
The excursions and activities are related to Spanish nature and history, guided by native specialists who, in a fun way, make us 'feel' or taste Spanish culture and history. Optionally, for initial levels, the group can be accompanied by a person for translation (in Dutch, English or German).
After your course in the mountains, you can continue your classes online.
Our teachers are available for private lessons and conversation classes by Skype.
In addition, we recommend AVE Global, an online programme developed by the Instituto Cervantes. In that case, we provide a certified tutor, who guides you throughout the course.
Every program is tailor-made, depending on the needs and preferences of the students, the chosen village/accommodation and the season of the year.
Before arrival in the Valencian Community, a level test is carried out by Skype, at a predetermined day and time with the students. This will help us to organize the classes so that they can be designed in advance.
