Students receive the highest level of personalized attention and instructions. The program provides an open and dynamic form of language learning, based on flexibility, combined with communication and formal reflection. This residential summer program encourages students to use Spanish in a practical way through conversation, media articles, music, etc., while still concentrating on the fundamental basics and set objectives of the curriculum.
On the weekends, students participate in travel excursions. High school students will explore the exotic Alhambra (the ancient palace of the Sultans and one of the most impressive monuments in the world), hike in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and swim in the clear Mediterranean waters of the Costa del Sol.
