Program Overview

Program Description:
“COMPLETE INTEGRATION WITH SPANISH PEOPLE” A city of 60.000 people, very safe, comfortable and with the warmest character for any guest. Your “Amigo in Cuenca” will welcome you and guide you from the first day. He or she will help you to integrate yourself in our town. But not only "Tu Amigo" in Cuenca will care and help you to integrate, you will also share the “Experiencias TSE” with other Spanish people. The Experience Card will help you to feel a citizen more in this place enjoying rights to borrow material in public libraries, discounts in entrance to public sport centres, museums or restaurants and shops.

The essence of our educational philosophy in 4 “C-words”: Use of language to COMMUNICATE through the development of attractive CONTENTS that motivate the students in order to acquire an important COGNITIVE base where the new language builds a bridge to other CULTURE encouraging values and braking barriers. Courses based on Content and Language Integrated Learning (C.L.I.L.) approach and the real use of the language: COMMUNICATION AND INTEGRATION!! PROGRAMS FRO JUNIORS AND ADULTS

Setting Description:
In 1996 Cuenca was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, for its wealth of art and culture and for the impressive natural and ecological enclave of the Serranía de Cuenca (also awarded the denomination of Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2007). The City Council and the UNED have converted this city into a “Spanish Campus” for you. As you can see, Cuenca welcomes you with open arms to make your “True Spanish Experience” both enriching and unforgettable. Can you imagine a city built on a rocky ridge in the high mountains with deep gorges that have been carved by two rivers, the River Jucar and the River Huecar? How can you believe that there are houses which from the street appear as 3 or 4 storeys yet have more than 20 storeys? What I didn’t know is that at the other side of this street there is a gorge and these houses cling to the hillside with loads more storeys. Imagine streets with views where looking down at first gives you vertigo but after a second the view you see is so
