The intensive courses represent a very interesting alternative to the training that is done during the academic year and allow us to take advantage of the summer to make a great advance in our knowledge of the foreign language. They also provide you with a unique opportunity of total immersion, living with a family and receiving lessons from your private teacher.
Our courses / stays also offer a series of very interesting additional advantages:
1. Progress and results much faster, thanks to linguistic concentration.
2. The contents are more personalized since, due to the limited time, the contents focus on the most essential, functional and useful aspects of the program.
3. The fact of being at a time of the year with less stress for studies, facilitates the student to concentrate more exclusively on learning.
4. We apply a dynamic and practical methodology, in a relaxed and participatory environment, with a greater emphasis on productive skills (speaking / reading). Participation in these conversations by the teacher makes classes more experiential and enriching.
5. They are ideal to finish preparing for official exams of different levels (B1, B2, C1 …) that, at the same time, can favor your curriculum and improve future employment opportunities.
6. They represent a magnificent opportunity to meet and live with people from another culture and tradition.
You will live, speak and breathe in English as soon as you arrive at the chosen site. Having private classes with a local family is one of the best ways to learn a language.
You will learn English at your own pace. All courses are designed taking into account your needs and not the needs of a group.
You will be completely isolated from your own language. You will have no contact with other foreign students as is the case with traditional language schools where lessons and accommodation are shared and students speak their own language after class. Mealtime conversations, visits, television and social contacts are all in English. Living with your teacher means that you will be guided and corrected not only during the lessons but all the times when the teacher and student are together. You won’t believe how much your language will improve.
All English lessons are designed to suit the needs and objectives of each individual student. Your English course will be unique to you.
All our teachers have either a teaching certificate “Recognised by the State” or a University Degree (or equivalent) accepted by the private sector. In addition they have all been awarded the Trinity Certificate or tESOLCertificate which means that the qualifications have been verified and the teachers’ homes have been thoroughly inspected.
