The first day of the program is dedicated to welcoming students, meeting their host families and making sure everyone is familiar with the school policies, the premises and the area.
On the first day of school the group is divided into classes which the accompanying teacher has already sent us. We will give each student a individualized class book based on what their teacher has asked us to prepare. Once in their class students can start lessons which are taught in Castilian Spanish.
The Class times are normally held in the mornings or in the early evenings, Monday to Friday, depending on availability and the choice of activities by the group leader in the case of school groups and GCSE revision groups.
For GCSE Revision groups, special emphasis is placed on the needs of the students for their exam. The accompanying teacher should give our head teacher information about the group and levels before their arrival.
- Standard program: (20 lessons per week)
- Class size: max of 12 students per class.
When classes have finished for the day, students have free time for social and cultural activities. These activities can be organised by the school or be free time periods. These activities and social culture programmes are designed to integrate students into the Spanish way of life.
Before the trip, the group chooses the cultural and leisure activities that they want to include in the program. If any outdoor activity is canceled due to bad weather, it will be moved to another day with more favourable weather conditions. This way we guarantee that students can enjoy all the activities.
If any activity is definitively canceled, the school returns the money to the group. Less any expenses or pre-payment for bookings.
In the case of whale watching in Tarifa, whether the activity is canceled or whales can not be seen, the company gives the group a voucher for a free trip the following year.
