Location: Spain / Madrid, Seville & Malaga
Dates: Available throughout the year ​
Age Range: Aged 21+

This is an immersion + programme, especially for participants looking for a full integration programme but with the added advantage of 1-1 private tuition during the stay with the host family.

Our host families for this programme are teachers of Spanish and their families and will offer 15 or 20 lessons per week as requested.​

Otherwise this is 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.

Classes will be held in the morning or afternoons depending on family plans and activities. For the rest of the day the participant might find that this includes activities such as food shopping, going out to buy the bread for lunch, visiting other family members, and perhaps the opportunity to meet some of the family friends. There will also be time to explore independently.
