spanish courses for teenagers

Spanish 2 Enjoy presents a wide range of Spanish courses for young students focused on getting the most out of a great educational program, which combine a wide range of activities, that complement and consolidate what they have learned in class.

The Programs offer an unforgettable journey where language learning is encouraged and also help them grow and live.

From cultural sightseeing programs, through courses that fuse sports and Spanish classes, to a family immersion for an authentic Spanish experience.

 

Available Programs

Family Immersion

 

Our Family Immersion programme is designed for students who wish to come to Spain independently and to live with a Spanish family.

This programme enables the student to become integrated into the Spanish way of life and live the culture, as well as to practise the Spanish language in a natural way. Spanish families are well-known for their hospitality and friendly nature.

It is an effective system, since our students spend day after day listening to the language that they want to learn, in the most varied situations. Not only the language, but also the culture, the customs and the history of the country end up forming part of the baggage that students take back home with them. We should not ignore the personal evolution experienced by each student.

The profile of the host families we look for are families who want to live the experience of hosting an international student and are willing to share their time with the student. Hence, the integration is easier as well as the linguistic immersion. Weekly, the family will do two half-day and one full-day

activity with the student.

The families undergo a process of selection. They are personally interviewed by our staff and their houses are inspected to make sure that they meet our standard of excellence. A common characteristic to all the host families is the ability to easily and naturally interact with teenagers.

Taking part in an immersion programme is a challenging and unforgettable experience for both students and host families.

Valencia Summer Camp

 

Valencia Summer Camp is designed for international students aged 13 to 17 who want to improve their Spanish language while getting to know the Spanish lifestyle and culture. The programme will take place in a school in Valencia, one of the most attractive cities in Spain for its Mediterranean climate and wide range of attractions.

The VSC combines the experience of family immersion, language lessons and cultural activities. International students will stay at Spanish families, have language classes divided by language skills and a full programme of activities.

 

Everyday, students will have 16 Spanish lessons of Spanish of 45 minutes each. To ensure optimal learning, each class will have a maximum of 12 students, with an average of 8-10 .

We offer different levels. Students are given a placement test on their first day of classes to ensure they are placed at the correct level.

We use a Task Based Learning approach during our lessons with the purpose of engaging the students’ interest and provoke a passion and enthusiasm for the Spanish language. There is a strong focus on speaking increasing their confidence and enjoyment of learning. Students work on a project, which is performed at the end of each week, using appropriate technology such as computers and cameras. Every day, at the end of the language classes we organise a fun dynamic activity during which Spanish and international students interact. 

The students a ending the VSC are Spanish and international. 90 % of the Spanish students host an international student. 

The activites in Valencia Summer Camp will be held from Mondays to Thursdays from 4pm to 6pm. Day trip on Fridays from 10am to 5pm.

ACCOMMODATION 

One aspect to highlight of our VSC programme are the host families. They do their best to make sure the guest-student participates in their everyday activities, sharing with them cultural and gastronomical experiences. After one week full of activities in the VSC, the host families themselves insisted to be given the chance to spend the whole weekend with their guest-studentsthemselves; and that is because they have numerous plans prepared for them ranging from meals with friends, to trips to other beautiful destinations in Spain. The international students might soon understand and borrow the tradition of having a nap after the typical paella on Sundays. What is sure is that their level of Spanish will improve in a natural and pleasant way. 

Another aspect to highlight is that 90% of the host families have children of a similar age to the international students and they also participate in our VSC. This fosters a good relation between the guest-students and their host families, which sometimes results in a close and long-lasting relation. 

The families undergo a process of selection. They are personally interviewed by our staff and their houses are inspected to make sure they meet our standard of excellence. A maximum of 2 students of different nationality can be placed with each family. The international students have their own room or they share with the family’s children. Under request, we can place two students of the same nationality together.   

 

Our goal is for the students to achieve learning the language by experiencing the Spanish culture and, of course, VSC would not be the same without the unique and enriching moments that each student shares with their host-families.

Students are admitted at any level of football, from beginner up to qualified players. All the trainings are directed by professionals. Students are integrated into a Spanish Football Club together with other Spanish students. Regarding coaching, it is important to point out that it will involve a comprehensive training programme in which all aspects of play, including techniques, skills, phases of play and small sided games will be covered. The players will witness a European philosophy, which includes different styles, techniques, skills and evaluation in their game and the way in which they play football. The training and matches take place in the mornings.

This programme offers a different perspective on language learning. Everyday students have 2 lessons of 50 minutes each, after lunch. Our language centre has created a Spanish integrated programme in a football context in order for the students to improve their linguistic skills and simultaneously to learn things related to their favourite sport and a healthy lifestyle. They will learn things such as the importance of nutrition, hydration and rest of a sportsperson, tactics and styles of game, teamwork, etc.

On Monday, Wednesday and Friday, students will have an afternoon cultural activity, which includes a tour round Mestalla, Valencia Football Club Stadium.
