Extracurricular activities (optional)
To achieve knowledge of a language a cultural immersion is necessary. With this goal, the Spanish language school has developed more than 40 different social activities that help student integration in tp Spanish life in Granada. These activities are very varied: Spanish movies, themed evenings, musical evenings, trips, visits, parties, sports, ‘tapas time’, ‘paella’ nights …
Some people study Spanish for self-enrichment or want to know how to tell the time or talk on the phone in Spanish or to satisfy short term language requirements in high school, college, university or career goals. Others however, such as university or Gap students, aspiring teachers, translators or others with long term career goals, study the language as part of a formal training programme. For this latter group of students, formally proving competency in the language is a requirement and this is where the DELE Exams are of great value.
Whilst many students living and learning Spanish in Granada, decide to stay with local Spanish hosts, the school also provide accommodation in local, shared apartments (with other language students) or in a small residence near the school.
