Aimed at those older students who wish to study with their peers whilst concentrating on developing their communication skills. The course focuses on the social and cultural aspects of the Spanish language rather than grammar analysis and written skills. It also includes four cultural activities per week; visits to museums and monuments, a show, an evening meal with a teacher and a Saturday excursion. Classes are in small groups with the emphasis on oral expression, as well as social and cultural aspects rather than grammar analysis and written skills. The teachers who impart this course are conscious of the specific needs of the students as well as their different rhythm of learning and the importance of special emphasis on culture (festivals and traditions, history and literature and the Spanish life style).
The programme includes 20 Spanish classes per week, welcome drink and cultural activities in the week. Entrance tickets to the museums and monuments are included as well as a concert or theatre evening, a meal with the teacher and a Saturday full day excursion.

The social programme is held over 4 afternoons (or evenings) each week; it includes one meal with the teacher, a Flamenco show, cultural and museum visits. Additionally there is always a seasonal activity, which varies for each Spanish Over 50s programme offered during the year. Last year the seasonal focus events included; Easter: Semana Santa, April: Seville’s Feria, May: Andalusian Gastronomy, September: Flamenco and in October: Wine Tasting – all highly enjoyable and much appreciated by past students!
Arrive at the Spanish language school first thing and take a level test at 09.15 hrs, to determine your class placement. Followed by an introduction to the activities offered by the school. Students are then advised of their language test results. Classes generally start at 11.20 (until 13.00hrs). In the evening students enjoy a sightseeing walk through Seville.
If there are less than 5 students in a particular class level, students will be placed in a general language course that is correct for their language level and can then join the Over 50s students for the social programme.
Choose from a range of options in Seville; staying with local Spanish hosts (great for your Spanish) or in a local Hotel. The school also have a number of nicely furnished private studios in a higher standard school residence that CESA staff can personally recommend, just a 20 minutes walk from the language school in Seville.
