Dates: 2 – 3 weeks in June, July, August
Age Range: 13 – 17 years old

This is a total immersion programme offering the participant the opportunity to fully integrate into the day-to-day life of a family, learn a lot of Spanish and discover so much more about the local area, people and customs. The programme is available in different areas: Madrid, Sevilla, Barcelona and Malaga.

One of the advantages of this programme is that it is probably the most intensive way to advance Spanish language practice in a short space of time. The host families are very carefully selected and are caring and welcoming, most of them with teenage children at home, and all of them keen to share their culture with a visitor.

The participant might find that a typical day is perhaps going to a beach or forest for a picnic, doing the shopping, going out to buy the bread for lunch, visiting other family members, spending time doing sport with the host family´s children and perhaps also the opportunity to meet some of their friends.​
