Spanish Intensive Language Course in Valencia

Location 

This beautiful Spanish language school is located deep in the heart of Valencia's old town, just a step away from all the interesting sights and services. The four storey former palace has  been carefully renovated into a stunning language school that compliments history with modernism. Inside the school you will see walls from its 11th Century Arab roots which penetrate through the classrooms and open spaces, creating both an atmosphere of history and mystique. There are 28 classrooms, all of which are filled with natural light, have full air-conditioning facilities and interactive whiteboards. If studying in a stunning location rich in history isn't enough, during breaks students can also make the most of the relaxed, well equipped social spaces, use the computers and wifi, enjoy the reading area with books and magazines, relax on a choice of two patios or bask in the sunshine on the breathtaking roof terrace, complete with sun loungers, fruit trees and a shower in which to cool off.  

Course 

The core course comprises 20 lessons which concentrate on learning and actively using Spanish. The tuition is very much practice oriented. You will participate in group sessions alongside other students of a similar level, with lessons focused on improving all aspects of the language; speaking listening, reading and writing. There are 4 classes per day and these take place during the morning or afternoon. This course is designed for students who wish to learn or improve their Spanish, meet new people and have some free time to participate in Spanish culture and life in Valencia. The core course of 20 lessons also combines very well with a work experience option in our Work & Study package.

For students who want a more intensive experience, it is possible to add up to two of the following additional modules (for an additional cost):

1. Five Spanish Life and Culture classes. 

2. Five Spanish Grammar Classes.

3. Five Spanish Pronunciation and Speaking Classes

There is also an option of five individual classes throughout the week (for an additional cost), the content of which will be decided by you in advance. We will ask you before you travel what you would like to cover with your tutor during these individual sessions, for example grammar, a specific thematic topic, conversation or pronunciation. It is possible to select the five individual classes option alongside the core course of 20 lessons only or alongside the core course of 20 lessons and one of the additional modules of five classes above. It is not possible to select the five individual classes option alongside the core course of 20 lessons and two of the additional modules of five classes.

You will be given a written assessment before you travel and a speaking assessment on the first morning before lessons in order to place you in the group most suited to your ability level. Classes have an international flavour and a lively feel because they are grouped by ability not nationality or age.

Accommodation 

For students wanting to completely immerse themselves in the Spanish language and culture we recommend that you stay with one of our carefully selected Spanish host families. They will not only introduce you to the Spanish way of life and help you practise the Spanish language but will also give you a taste of local and delicious regional specialities. The host families are situated near to the school and provide half board accommodation (breakfast & evening meal) from the Sunday before your course starts to the Saturday after it finishes. Subject to availability, an extra day on one side of your trip may be available on request to facilitate flight dates. A surcharge is payable for any extra nights. You can read more about what it means to stay with a host family in the FAQ section of our website.

Students of 18 years or older also have the option of staying in one of the school residences with other international students; single rooms are available with breakfast included, extra meals can also be provided on request. Please enquire for availability and prices for residence stay.
