Teaching // 12-15 years
The teachers are skilled and experienced in teaching Spanish as a second language, and they use new and exciting teaching methods. There is max. 12 students per. class and the teaching consists of min. 15 lessons of language teaching and 10 hours of “playful” activities and workshops. As the location of the school is right by the sea it is possible to play football, volleyball, snorkel, surf, sail and swim right outside the door. Classes in horse riding, climbing, snorkelling, tennis, golf and more can also be arranged at an extra charge. At the summer camp, there are new activities every day, such as dancing, learning, artistic activities, sports, etc. – and very often the beach is involved in the activities.
What is special about the summer camp is that they teach both students who wish to learn Spanish and local students who wish to learn English. Their aim is to promote a bilingual and multicultural enviroment for students of English and Spanish. Working in small groups with graduate teachers and camp leaders, they follow a personalised approach to support each student. The day begins around 9am and follows a traditional Spanish day with lunch around 2.30pm and dinner after 7.30pm. Between the classes there are breaks for sports activities together on the beach. In the last module, the young people are mixed in workshops, which have a more creative and communicative character, such as drama, volunteering, cooking, poster design etc.
All students receive a level test on the first day of the course, from which they are placed in a group with an appropriate level. On this course there are 15 Spanish lessons per week.

Malaga – Spanish passion and culture gathered in one city
Málaga is located on the south coast of Spain in the area called Andalusia. Here you will find what most people understand by “real Spain”: flamenco, the white villages, Arab palaces, blue skies, beautiful colourful bougainvillea, bullfighting, historic towns, sunbathing beaches and of course the passion with which the Andalusian people enjoy life.
Málaga’s historic city centre with its winding streets, hundreds of tapas bars and restaurants help to maintain the overall Spanish atmosphere. The cathedral and the Arabian castle are part of the rich architectural heritage. Picasso was born here and a museum has been opened in his honour in the middle of the historic city. In addition, there are countless art galleries, cinemas and music venues for the artistically interested.
Málaga is also equipped with a large international airport, which makes it an ideal starting point for visits to places such as Granada, Seville, Córdoba and Ronda at language schools in Spain. The places mentioned here can be reached in a few hours with Málaga as a starting point. Malaga is a really attractive destination to go on a language trip to!
