Learn Spanish in Santiago de Compostela
In this wonderful, safe city, Blanca Fernández Piñeiro, an English language graduate with extensive experience in teaching Spanish, organises courses in her own home for a maximum of three children at a time, so that they can receive a thorough grounding in Spanish language and culture.
The course consists of one week of intensive learning, with specially adapted classes for 3 hours in the morning, 5 days a week, and the opportunity to continue practising the language during the rest of their stay. The course is adapted to their needs - preparing oral exams at different levels and going over what they have learned at school (years 9 to 13, 6th form, International Baccalaureate).
Spanish as a Second Language
This is completely different from a normal language school course: the children live and study in the teacher’s home or at her office in a business centre, receiving lessons at their own rhythm, from the moment they are collected at the airport until they return home.
The daily routine begins with classes in the morning. The children then help out in the kitchen, laying the table and doing other tasks that help them to learn vocabulary. In the afternoons they explore the city together with Blanca, discovering its buildings, museums, parks and businesses.
Meals at Blanca’s home are traditional Spanish and Galician recipes, although they can be adapted to the children’s tastes.
During the week, the children must be prepared to take part and discover new things, with an open-minded attitude that helps them to make the very most of their stay.
