Program Overview

Program Description:
The Secondary Education stage is a delicate one, as much for the age of the students as for the amount of contents that they have to learn without always being motivated or receptive to learning. Our Junior Programmes aims to break down the barrier that often exists among students of this age with their learning of Spanish and awaken an interest and special motivation thanks to the contents and methodology we use. Any time of the year is ideal for a "True Spanish Experience". Weakly programmes are designed to make any "half term" a perfect moment to offer the students a supplement to their Spanish training to encourage their interest an motivation. There is no reason why students in the academic year of GCSE and IB examinations need to miss out on this experience because of their exams preparation. This can be the perfect opportunity to become familiar with the contest of the Spanish examination within a real context of total immersion.

Our pedagogical approach is taken from the most recent trend in research into foreign language acquisition: CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) and is based on the natural use and acquisition of language in real life situations where students can learn new things with the new language input as a vehicle for learning. Students acquire fluency in Spanish by using the language to communicate with a real purpose. Our programmes are based on experiences, which we call “Experiencias TSE” and which are the key to language acquisition; attractive contents that will enrich the foreign student while Spanish is used for what it really is, as a tool for communication. These contents have been developed for their intrinsic values, representing as they do, the essence of our city: - Art & Culture - Nature & Biodiversity - Audio-visual & Mass Media - Business - Sport & Multi-adventure Activities 32 hours per week of experience, coexistence with native speakers, training, and learning spanish!

True Spanish Experience is the perfect way to offer students learning the foreign language the advantage of also learning content with total cultural immersion. As well as offering an unforgettable personal experience it can become an important part of your school or university’s academic content, or your business’s programme. Learning related to art, culture or the environment and doing exciting adventure sports, workshops and activities while practising Spanish is the best way for students to experience real language and culture. University training plays an essential role in our project. In conjunction with the National University of Distance Learning (UNED) our University programme provides a range of options adapted to the individual interests and needs of students of Spanish as a foreign language. Students will be able to: - Improve and perfect communicative competence in a total immersion context in short time. - Enjoy the warmth of Spaniards in a city which guarantees comfort and safety. - Know the Spanish life-styles and customs while acquiring knowledge in your professional field. - Discover the land of Castilian, its cultural and artistic richness and its spectacular landscapes.
