Description

We are affiliated with an exceptional language school in Benalmadena called Colegio Maravillas. The dedicated team at this excellent school comply with the high standards we require and provide excellent Spanish Secondary School programmes and safe accommodation. As part of the Secondary School programme, Colegio Maravillas place students in the most suitable school where they can attend classes with other international students. The duration of this immersive programme is up to you: you can stay between four weeks and the full academic year. Students can begin their programme any Monday of the academic year, making this a flexible choice for Transition Year students. To qualify for this programme, you are required to have spent two years studying Spanish in school. During your stay, you’ll attend mainstream classes such as geography and science from 8.45 am until 2 pm. Students under the age of 16 will join what is called ‘Secondary Education’ and will take a variety of mandatory subjects. If you are over 16, you’ll take the same mandatory subjects but can opt for additional ones also. The staff at this language school are committed to placing students in the best school possible with your host family accommodation a short distance away. You will also have the support of your local coordinator who you will have weekly tutorials with. During these, they will monitor your overall progress and ensure you are having a positive experience. Whether you stay for four weeks, six months or the full academic year, this immersive experience allows you to completely embrace the Spanish culture and language. Studying alongside Spanish students will allow you to hugely improve your fluency as you practise conversation skills during and outside classes. There are also plenty of local sports teams and clubs to join and with the vibrant surf scene and local tourist attractions on offer, you won’t be short of activities to enjoy in your spare time.

Accommodation

A vital element in creating a positive experience for students who undertake an immersive programme abroad is securing safe and comfortable accommodation located a short distance from your school. The staff at Maravillas thoroughly vet each host family before placing students to ensure that you are suitably matched. During your stay with your welcoming host family, you will be provided with full board. Students also stay in a single room and usually attend school with the children of the host family or with the neighbouring student. We understand that each student’s needs are unique so if you have any special requirements or food allergies, please inform us at the point of booking to allow us to accommodate your needs as best as possible.
