                                               a mediterranean city   ―

        If diversity is what you are looking for in
        your Spanish immersion courses in Spain,
        you will find plenty of it in Alicante, in
        the Costa Blanca region.

        Alicante  combines    classicism with
        modernity, leisure with business, fun
        with study, and even mountain and

        The richness of Alicante's history is
        preserved through its archaeological
        remains. The beauty of its monuments
        along with the charm of various
        festivities and cultural events held
        throughout the year increase the appeal
        of the city.

        The wonderful beaches and mild
        climate all year round make Alicante one
        of Spain’s most important tourist areas.

        All in all, Alicante is a Mediterranean
        city, with its beautiful beaches, its

        Santa Barbara Castle, you will discover
        an unforgettable panoramic view of the

        the church of Santa Maria, the
        Cathedral, the Town Hall façade, the
        monastery of Santa Faz, the San
        Fernando Castle and much more. Seeing
        all these magnificent monuments from
        above will invite you to go down the hill
        and walk along them.

        Along the streets, you will come across
        large and small palaces, as well as
        traditionally painted white, yellow and
        pink houses. Everything is illuminated by
        the blue light of the Mediterranean Sea
        and encourages you to continue walking
        around and discovering places.

        The widest avenues, such as La Rambla
        or Doctor Gadea will lead you to Alfonso
        X el Sabio Street with the Luceros on one
        side and the Central Market on the
        other, just opposite the School of

                                             lessons in mini-groups   ―

         The aim of our classes is that children have
         to learn Spanish in a funny way, while
         projecting real communication situations
         with games, comics, songs, handicrafts,
         theatre, videos, etc.
         Every day, children will have Spanish
         lessons during 2 hours ½ in the
         afternoon, and they will receive the
         equipment adapted, furthermore, they
         will elaborate their own dictionary and
         the studied themes.

         Our learning system develops children
         abilities by approaching the various
         facets of the language in a complete
         way: to hear, to read, to write and more
         especially, to speak.

         The more important is that children learn
         to communicate in Spanish with new
         vocabulary and new sentences that
         permit to express themselves.

         The method and the equipment we use
         during classes are totally adapted with
         the children age, with a rewarding and
         attractive design to make the classes
         dynamic, and to make children actors of
         their own learning.

         Different levels will be created so that
         students will make a maximum of profits
         of their lessons.

         We desire to offer classes of quality,
         without forgot that children are doing a
         summer program, in which they have to
         learn, as far as they have to have fun.

                   handle the sail with balance exercises and
                   many funny baths.

                   On the canoe, they will feel the direct contact

                   waters, always controlled and supervised by

                            We know students want to learn Spanish

                            them. Beach, sports, games, amusement

                  Living with a Spanish family is one of the
                  best ways to get to know the country,
                  including its culture and its people. It will
                  also allow students to practice the Spanish
                  language in a natural way.

                  The majority of the host families are near
                  the school, around 10 or 15 minutes
                  walking. If children live more than 20
                  minutes walking, we provide them with
                  bus tickets to go to the school. All the
                  quarters of the city are connected to the
                  centre by urban buses running every 10-15
                  minutes. A person from the host family or
                  a group leader from Zador accompanies
                  children to go to the School, the Sport

                  The families are selected and visited
                  regularly by our staff. In all of them,
                  students will find a warm atmosphere that
                  will help them get integrated into the
                  family and city life very quickly. Families
                  usually have children with a similar age to
                  the students.

                  Students will have a single room or a twin

                  The family provides the bed linen and
                  towels, but they must bring their own
                  towels for the beach. Students will have
                  laundry once or twice a week and they
                  should keep their room clean and tidy, and
                  share the housework with the rest of the
                  family (“small tasks”).

                  As in any family around the world, there
                  are also a series of rules students must
                  follow: be punctual to meal hours, let the
                  host know if they are not having lunch or
                  dinner at home, phone when arriving

                  Students have to take into account that
                  the house in Spain is considered a private
                  family place. Therefore, if children want
                  to have a guest over, they should ask
                  permission, keeping in mind that in most
                  cases the family will not fancy the idea.

                  All the children should arrive the evening
                  before the beginning of the Spanish &
                  Summer       Camp     and     leave    the
                  accommodation the day after the end of
                  the Programme. Days before or after are
                  considered extra nights.
  *We provide parents all the information about the host family (house description and photos, personal
  details, hobbies, profession, age…. Of course, if parents want, the can visit the Host family).

                            On Saturday children receive usually a

                            (“bocadillos”), fruit and drink, thus
                            they can enjoy the excursions and
                            trips. On Sunday they have lunch with
                            the host family. Lunch time in Spain is

                           Special requirements: children with
                            special dietary requirements should
                            make a note in the enrolment.

                         One week before the beginning of the
                         Spanish Program, you will be supplied with
                         the     information       concerning   the
                         accommodation: host family address,
                         names, ages, profession, hobbies of the
                         family and an email to contact them
                         before arrival just to introduce them.

  ―   some rules in the family
                         Phone calls and Internet: Children must
                         use calling cards. The family should be
                         notified if students want to make reverse
                         charge calls. To receive phone calls the
                         limited time is around 10.30 p.m. Internet
                         and phone access varies by family.

                         Student expenses: Remember that the
                         student should pay their own expenses on
                         excursions (ice-creams, beverages and
                         some souvenirs…) We suggest around € 10-
                         15 per day as pocket money.
