Get ready for the summer of a lifetime as you travel to Spain for 14 days to learn the Spanish language not only in the classroom, but also in your everyday activities as you explore the bustling cities and relaxing beaches of this diverse country.
The beaches, the food, the people, the language…what’s not to love about Spain in the summertime? With TFT, not only will you explore this vibrant Mediterranean country like a local but you’ll learn to speak like one too! On this unforgettable journey, you will join 40 hours of intensive Spanish courses at two different international schools – so you can perfect your speaking skills while immersed in the different dialects of San Sebastián and Barcelona. Join us to explore three of Spain’s most dynamic regions and gain confidence in your Spanish skills both inside and outside the classroom!
We’ll begin in serene San Sebastián, the capital of Basque Country, where you’ll begin your first session of lessons taught by native speakers. After your studies, you’ll surf at an international surfer’s paradise, taste your way through our one-of-a-kind Tapas Tour through the Historical Quarter, relax on Playa la Concha, and say bonjour to France on a day trip! Next stop is regal Madrid, where we’ll stroll through the Puerta del Sol, pay homage to the legendary Real Madrid Football Club at the Bernabéu Stadium, and go for a rowboat ride in Retiro Park.
We’ll finish out our journey in fun and funky Barcelona where you’ll join your second session of language lessons at the local international school. We will take our speaking skills to the streets and amble down the palm-lined boulevards, explore the twists and turns of the Gothic Quarter, bike through the city spotting the architecture of Gaudí, and see the home of FC Barcelona.
Our Spanish Immersion program is perfect for high school students looking to gain a global perspective and gain fluency in the language in the best way possible. Our experienced bilingual staff will accompany you every step of the way as you broaden your speaking skills outside the classroom through language scavenger hunts, chitchatting with local shopkeepers, ordering food at local restaurants, and simply by being immersed in the culture. Come with us this summer for an enriching experience you will never forget!
