Spanish language students at the beach

The college is aware that the students are on holiday so whilst students are immersed in daily Spanish life, speaking Spanish with native Spanish speaking teachers, there are also college monitors in Benalamdena who help organise the social activities each week and share their time with the international students.

Course Description
If you want to learn Spanish with other teenagers in a beautiful, sunny and charming Andalucian town, Benalmadena is ideal. Originally a fishing village, it is still a sea of whitewashed little houses with good shops, a wonderful marina and beaches just a short walk away.   It is within easy reach by air from Malaga and greatly appeals to our younger language students.  Spanish lessons are held in a modern state school, within easy reach of the beach.

The college has offered Teenage Spanish language courses for many years now and provides programmes over the Easter and Summer holidays. During the summer, the classes are offered at the state school site, over Easter lessons are held at the main adult college. Students always stay with local Spanish hosts.

Spanish language camp Benalmadena

The combination of the Spanish language lessons with a busy activity programme has real appeal! Every morning, from Monday to Friday, students study Spanish in the classroom and then each afternoon are kept busy by the dedicated Spanish group leaders, who organise a range of sporting, social and cultural activities either on site or in the local area. The weekends are dedicated to activities or free time. So if you like to be busy, this is the perfect language course!
