For students wanting to improve their Spanish language skills while exploring everything that makes Spain one of the top destinations in Europe, this perfectly paced 21-day program will leave you loving Spain as much as we do. Find out more!
Come on this unforgettable journey with TFT, and not only will you explore this vibrant Mediterranean country like a local but you’ll learn to speak like one too! On this extended version of our 14-day Spanish immersion trip, you’ll spend another full week soaking up the Spanish culture and language with 60 hours of intensive Spanish language courses. You’ll learn from native speakers at three different international schools and test your speaking skills while immersed in the different dialects of San Sebastián, Barcelona, and Alicante. Join us to explore 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 start 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 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 continue 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 Gaudi, and see the home of FC Barcelona. We’ll also learn to make paella in it’s original home (although the Valencians would debate this). We’ll journey on to Valencia before making our way to Alicante. We’ll spend the final week of our trip in this stunning costal destination, soaking up the sun and polishing up your language skills at the local international school.
Our Spanish Language Immersion trip 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!
