CULTURAL AND LINGUISTIC IMMERSION PROGRAMME IN GRANADA
CULTURAL AND LINGUISTIC IMMERSION PROGRAMME IN GRANADA FOR SPANISH LANGUAGE STUDENTS
Accredited by the Junta de Andalucía
Are you learning Spanish?
Would you like to practice everything you have learnt in an interactive and fun way in a very small group with an ELE teacher?
We have created this Spanish Immersion Programme in Granda with a group of teachers, for intermediate to advanced Spanish students (level B1, B2, C1).I am an ELE teacher (Spanish as a foreign language certified by the Instituto Cervantes) and an accredited tourist guide in Andalusia.
We know that some students find it difficult to practise the language or to integrate into the city, especially if they come for a short period of time. There are also students who want to embark on an extensive Spanish course over several months and wish to get a taste of the city first. Other students want to have a language immersion experience and prefer the security and support of a small group with their teacher.
If you want to practice and improve your Spanish for a week, visiting our cultural heritage in a much more engaging way, with an official guide and ELE teacher at your side, getting to know our gastronomy and culture, travelling around the province and talking to locals, then this is an excellent way to enjoy Granada in Spanish with us.
LINGUISTIC IMMERSION PROGRAMME IN GRANADA
Have you ever thought about living a different linguistic experience, speaking and interacting with locals?
The novelty of this programme is that all the activities take place outside the classroom and are totally interactive, so you will be using Spanish 24 hours a day, except when you sleep :)))).
The groups have 6 to 8 participants and the programme is aimed at intermediate and advanced level students (B1, B2 or C1).
One month before coming to Granada, you will receive material with useful information about our city, its history, the customs, etc., as well as specific vocabulary for each topic we are going to cover. This complementary material will be of great help to the student.
Participants will experience an intense period of linguistic immersion, learn about all aspects of Spanish society, culture, gastronomy and folklore through a delightful range of activities and workshops.
WHERE THE COURSES WILL TAKE PLACE
The programme will take place in different localities but always outside the classroom, including cultural tours and workshops (tea shops, restaurants, tapas bars, flamenco dance hall, …).
Every morning, before the beginning of the activity, there is a meeting with the students where there will be a brief introduction to each day’s theme.
Accommodation is included in the registration fee. Students have the possibility to choose between different options in the city of Granada:
*Depending on the number of participants booking the same type of accommodation, the price will change and could be more economical.
