Our Spanish courses are designed for students to reach an effective and operating level of  Spanish in little time, which focuses on being capable to think and communicate. Classes are offered at different levels. These courses are the perfect opportunity to begin to learn or improve your level of Spanish. The program goes beyond class hours, creating an environment with rich activities and contact with natives. The methodology is participatory, intensive and mainly oral. Classes are fun, and at the same time require the interest and motivation of students. The grammar is implied, which means learned naturally, once students know how to utilize structures and communicative skills, the grammar implied becomes a short review.

The classes given are:

  • Conversation and communication skills
  • Current topics in Spain
  • Written expression development
  • Origins of Spanish history and culture

The courses, as requested by each student, can be directed to achieve a DELE (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) certificate.

All Program prices include a non-refundable fee of €150.

Accommodation

Home Stay

The most common type of accommodation for a full Spanish language and culture immersion is staying with a host family. The program offers full room and board, which includes three meals a day. The family also takes care of the laundry. The first day they show the students their way to our school, and everything the student may need to know to get around easily, for example, public transportation and so on. Living with a family allows the students to get to know the Spanish culture and people deeply, indeed we believe this to be an important aspect of the program. The program staff chooses the families carefully and continuous contact is maintained with them. The family helps the students get to know Spain better and integrate them into Spanish culture through eating, speaking and living together. We consider the participation of the families to be one of the most essential parts of the program that supports the safety and well being of the student.

Many of the universities we work with prefer that students live with Spanish families, but occasionally they are open to the possibility of the following options:

Shared Apartment

This demands the most responsibility of students because they must take care of purchasing their own food. SIGE pays for the rent and gives the students a fixed amount to pay for the maintenance of the apartment. SIGE makes sure that the students are comfortable in their apartment housing and helps students with any issues that may arise.

Residence

SIGE collaborates with various residences that offer housing in the city. This is the third option available to students.
