San Sebastian is the perfect destination to study Spanish, especially for juniors (students between the ages of 14 and 17). The city´s beauty and the friendly locals make for a great first impression. As a city it is attractive, interesting and unique while being small enough to be safe, comfortable and laid back. During the 12 weeks (June 1 to August 30) it is available, our junior programme takes advantage of everything that San Sebastian has to offer, combining sports, excursions, culture and events.
The course consists of 5 classes a day in groups of 4-12 students per class, plus organized activities 3 afternoons per week and a full-day excursion every Saturday. Juniors are supervised by a school monitor who coordinates and maintains an important balance between teachers, school and families, as well as organises and pays for the activities and takes care of the well being of the students. However, students will have two free afternoons as well as all day Sunday to get to know the host family and become familiar with Spanish traditions and culture.
As always, our quality standards ensure superior teaching. We are recognized by the Instituto Cervantes & CEELE, both of which are the most prestigious certifications a Spanish language academy can receive.
