Program Overview

Program Description:
Everybody knows the power of sort for transmitting values and for personal and social development. nowadays many governments and institutions support sports activities as an educational good, not only in the world of sport but also in a socio-cultural sense. Specific workshops and field games will provide the means to work on some of the values that sport promotes: solidarity, companionship, respect for others and team work; not forgetting the intrinsic physical and psychological benefits that come from doing sports activities. The idea is for students to life the "Spanish Experience" through sport, learning about the techniques used in Spanish football and acquiring the values and benefits that it offers.

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.
Setting Description:
The programme is divided into mornings for Spanish and afternoons for the “Experiencias TSE”, where students will enjoy the range of workshops and activities they have chosen from the three blocks of content. In total students will have a total of SEVEN hours daily of Spanish • In the mornings, four classes in which the students will learn and have fun with games to acquire vocabulary, and interactive activities with attractive materials on current topics to encourage their interest and motivation. • In the afternoons, three hour to put into practice students’ communicative competence in Spanish by taking part alongside other Spanish students from the city and the trainers in football. Their learning of Spanish will thus be rein- forced by actively participating in what most interests them.
