Summer Program in Valencia for Juniors 14-17

Our comprehensive Teen Program is designed for youngsters aged between 14 and 17 with all levels of Spanish. We expertly combine our lessons in small, caring classes with cultural and leisure activities.

We put a lot of effort into opening the minds of our teenagers through total cultural immersion. Students walk away with new skills, greater appreciation for other cultures, new friends from across the world and more insights into what they can achieve. Our students will practice their Spanish and have a memorable experience.

Program Description

Opening the minds of our teenagers through total cultural immersion!

Program overview

  • The objective of the program is to help you express yourself more fluently in Spanish. Students learn how people use the language in real life, how they speak to each other in the street, how they socialize, etc    
  • We concentrate on all of the fundamental language learning skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking  
  • All classes are given in Spanish. The groups are small in number, the teacher is able to deal with the specific needs of each student on a more personal basis  
  • The programme also aims to integrate students into our culture. Visits to cultural centres, museums, other towns, etc. are arranged, in an attempt to ensure that all students are fully immersed in Spanish life 

Spanish lessons 

There are four Spanish classes every morning from 9:30 to 13:30 where our young learners focus on communication skills. We want to help them speak with confidence, regardless of level, in a fun and friendly environment


At the end of the course, students are given an attendance certificate indicating the course taken, the number of hours of study and the level reached, in addition to a detailed report on their progress in each language area


The courses are divided up into 6 different levels: from beginner to advanced levels

Spanish level test 

On the first day of class, students are given a talk about the programme they will be studying, and have to take a level test. Once the test has been corrected, they are incorporated into the group

Class material

You will use a textbook in class, together with supplemental material such as newspaper/press articles, adverts, audio-visual materials etc. 


Our method combines a traditional grammar approach with a more modern communicative focus. To put it simply, great importance is placed on practising grammar in communicative contexts which reproduce situations you might come across in everyday life.

Arrival & Accommodation

You will feel comfortable and relax!


Arrivals are normally on Sundays and departures on Saturdays (extra nights might be possible at extra cost). We pick up the students at the airport and take them to the host family. On Monday morning host families accompany the teens to school and show them the way back home, either walking or by public transport.


Students live with carefully selected host families, giving them full immersion from day one in the Spanish way of life. 

Host families

  • Living with a Spanish family is the best way to become familiar with the Spanish lifestyle, get to know Spanish customs and practise the language
  • We select our families carefully so that our students feel completely at ease with them. Don't expect the host family houses to be luxurious, but they are comfortable and hospitable
  • Most of the families live near the school, the maximum distance from the school to the host is 20 minutes by public transport
  •  Students are lodged in double rooms with full board. Weekly laundry and cleaning is included
  • You will have your own keys to come and go as you wish, but you must respect some basic rules and schedules, especially for mealtimes


Our activities include cultural visits, sports competitions, barbecues, dancing lessons, beach afternoons or shopping and many more!

  • Every afternoon there will be fun from 15:30 to 19:30. Our activities include cultural visits, sports competitions, barbecues, dancing lessons, beach afternoons or shopping. Students return home after the activities
  • On Saturdays, there are full-day excursions, while on Sundays, the teenagers are free to spend the day with their hosts, or they can meet friends (as long as they tell their hosts where they will be and when they will be back)
  • Experienced teachers and coordinators take care of our students and accompany them during all the cultural activities, visits and excursions included in the programme
