SPANISH FOR YOUNGER STUDENTS (12-17)
Instituto Andalusí offers Spanish courses for teenagers in order to give them the possibility to choose a course with all the elements of the perfect vacation. The young students, age 12-17, will attend classes in the morning and participate in the leisure program in the afternoon. Besides getting to know the Spanish culture, they will also meet students from all over the world.
The extracurricular activities are carefully chosen and focusing on the needs of the younger students. This could include sporting activities, such as bowling, playing football or volleyball at the beach, but also cultural visits, such as museums, cinemas and sightseeing in Malaga. An excursion to one of our surrounding cities – Granada, Cordoba, Seville, Gibraltar and many more – is part of the leisure program too. All these activities are included in the price of the course and therefore the students can enjoy the sun, beach, fun, culture besides the Spanish classes, while having nothing to worry about. The teenager course in Malaga, Costa del Sol, is the best choice for an incredible and educational vacation abroad.
The professors have created a program especially for our young students. We put a strong focus on the playful practice of teaching Spanish. This course combines the interactive, fun and creative way to study, ensuring that the student will be motivated to participate in class.
All afternoon activities and weekend excursions will always be accompanied by an employee of the school. Our employee will meet the student at a meeting point (close to their Spanish home) and will guide them back to that same meeting point when the excursion has ended.
Age and availability
The spanish courses for teenagers is adequate for students aged 12 to 17 years. Our young student program in Malaga is available in the Easter and autumn holidays, and during the summer months (June – September). Please look at ‘Dates’ below to see the exact dates.
The students normally stay with a host family where they can enjoy their morning, afternoon and evening meal. In the host family you can either choose between a half- or full-board and a single or a double room. As our school is located away from the touristy centre, our host families are the perfect opportunity and challenge for the students to practice what they have learned in their classes. The families all live in safe neighbourhoods and nearby the school, so that the students can easily walk. Furthermore we are in close contact with the host families, so we can inform them about our program and possible allergies or requirements that students may have. All the necessities for a wonderful experience!
