MARBELLA "Las Chapas", SPAIN

Spanish course + summer activities for ages between 14 and 17 at the Alboran school-residence in Marbella

Marbella is known as the playground of Europe’s rich and famous. If the Costa del Sol was conceived as Europe’s Florida, then Marbella is its Miami. Situated between Malaga and Gibraltar, this exclusive resort is where numerous international celebrities and royalty relocate for the summer, hiding out in private villas and exclusive five-star hotels, or on their luxury yachts. Hordes of British tabloid stars head down there for their holidays and can be spotted sporting their Melissa Odabash kaftans and gladiator sandals as they stroll through the town. You can find all the top designer emporiums here – Gucci, Versace, D&G, Dior – but it also has a pretty, well-preserved casco antiguo (old town) with Plaza de los Naranjos at its heart, and historic buildings, including a Moorish fort, and Roman remains (columns and a bridge).

Alboran College

The camp takes place at the Alboran School, which is located in an environment of singular beauty. The school is surrounded by an extensive pine forest that provides a relaxing environment for students. 8 km from Marbella, you can access the beach by walking.

Among the camp facilities are several common areas, a climbing wall and a riding school attached to the complex. All this, located in extensive gardens surrounded by pine forests that cover 38,000 m2.

The bedrooms are very spacious classrooms converted into bedrooms. They are perfectly equipped during the summer with their bunk beds and wardrobes. They host between 8 and 10 students per room, according to age and sex. In each dormitory, a monitor supervises the students.

Our Spanish camp program is a deep immersion in an intercultural and international environment, practicing languages ​​outside the classrooms. Spanish and foreign students will participate jointly in all cultural and sports activities. The attendance is of young people from various countries of the world (at least 40% of Spanish students). They will also share rooms divided by sex and age and will get many experiences that will unite them forever. The course takes place in the Unamuno school-residence, where the classrooms, bedrooms, dining rooms and the rest of the rooms are located, so that the students have all their needs covered and the security and assistance of monitors are constant.

Summer Spanish course

The main objective is to have fun. Both the content and materials of the summer language courses and the teaching methodology aim to achieve the perfect balance of fun and rigor so that our young people get the best out of their Spanish course.

Faculty

The success of all learning depends to a large extent on the teaching team that imparts it and on the motivations of the students. That is why we carefully select our team of language teachers. All of them are bilingual, are qualified to teach English or Spanish, have the CAP (Certificate of Pedagogical Aptitude) and many of them are native speakers.

Methodology: Talk, don’t write

Our approach to teaching is designed to build confidence and develop the fluency of each student in order to speak English naturally. A practical method that makes students gain confidence while working on real life projects. Students will work as a team, make proposals and contribute ideas about their project, evaluate solutions, assign tasks to each member, and decide on the means with which they will present the project (video, photos, posters, presentation, etc.), they will select the necessary materials and will manage the time necessary to carry it out. Meanwhile, they will learn and improve their leadership, teamwork, communication, emotional intelligence skills and increase their self-confidence.

Language level

The student’s level will be determined through a Spanish or English test on the first day of the course. Students will be divided according to their age and the results of the test. The student will access the level that corresponds to him among the 7 that we offer, basic beginners to advanced.

The summer English course is offered at all summer camps.
They consist of 20 lessons per week divided into 4 daily lessons from Monday to Friday.
Each lesson will last about 45 minutes.
