Homestay Spanish Immersion Course

Homestay Spanish Immersion Course

Our Spanish courses in Spain are 100% tailored to your needs. We offer our most chosen Homestay Spanish Immersion Course for all levels, in small groups allowing us to focus on your individual needs and interests.

Beginners will learn Spanish for everyday situations whereas, in the more advanced courses, students become involved in selecting topics for discussion according to their individual needs and interests.

Our Spanish immersion courses take place in a family environment where apart from studying Spanish you will be able to blend into our lifestyle.

You will be sharing our family lifestyle, you will have meals with all the family, play with our twin daughters, help cooking, go to the supermarket or watch telly with us among other things. We will welcome you as another member of our family.

However, we speak fluent English so that you won’t ever feel isolated and you will have your own bedroom with en-suite bathroom to keep your privacy.

In this area, students will be able to practice Spanish outside the classroom – at local shops, cafes, walks, etc.- as not many people speak English here.

You can spend your free time enjoying one of the many walks that you can take from our doorstep or take one of our bikes and ride along the old railway track. Puente Viesgo is also famous because of its prehistoric caves -UNESCO’s World Heritage Site- and the Spa (Balneario de Puente Viesgo).
