At our request, our partners in Malaga have organised this intensive language and activity programme for Irish participants traveling with AFS/EIL. In just two weeks, students’ oral and written Spanish can significantly improve. The combination of language classes and staying with a Spanish host family offers dual language learning – ideal for Leaving Certificate preparation! Students will also have a chance to relax and have some fun through tours, cultural activities and excursions. This is a closed group course; there are a limited number of places (maximum 12 students per group) and there will only be other Irish students taking part in the class.
This course is suitable for students from Transition Year to Leaving Certificate level. Students will sit a placement test on arrival to assess their level in order to ensure maximum language learning. The course material is specifically geared towards preparation for the Irish Leaving Certificate Exam for Spanish.
The course takes place over set dates. Programmes will not be confirmed until the minimum of 6 participants is secured for each session. In the event that 6 students do not sign up for any particular Leaving Certificate Preparation Course, a place on an alternative session can be arranged, or a place on one of the other courses (Standard, Intensive, Intensive Plus or Super Intensive) for the same dates can be arranged. If neither of these options suits, deposits can be refunded.
Included in the Leaving Certificate Preparation course are:
- 26 lessons of Spanish per week
- One full-day excursion
- Books and materials
- Single or twin room, half board accommodation with a host family
- A schedule of afternoon and weekly activities such as Sevillana dance classes and cultural talks
- Transfer from Malaga airport or railway station
- CareMed medical travel insurance
If students prefer to extend their programme to more than 2 weeks, it is possible to add on one of the other courses for any number of weeks either before or after the Leaving Certificate Preparation Course.
1 group lesson = 50 minutes of teaching time.
