First Day

Students are given a written classification test and an oral interview to allocate them to the correct class. The school will also arrange for a pre-arrival written test, once you have enrolled (which can shorten the assessment process on the first day). Lessons will then start on the Monday morning, once the assessment for class levels have been completed. Beginners to the Spanish language will start their classes straight away on the Monday morning.

On your first day, the school will arrange a late afternoon presentation to enable students to get together and to discuss the forthcoming social events planned for the following days.

Practical Information

  • Students may be placed in Standard Course groups open to all ages, if there are insufficient students on the Over 50s Programme to form a successful group at any particular level.
  • It may be that the Director of Studies establishes that there is just one student at a given language level, in this case, the Spanish school will offer the student a smaller number of private class lessons, in lieu of the full group lessons timetable.

Accommodation

Accommodation is arranged with local Spanish hosts or in the college residence (which is of a good standard and suitable for mature students). Alternatively there are a wide range of Hotels of all standards in town.  The “Parador” and “Balcon de Europe” are top end options and come highly recommended!
