Allot your year to Spanish

A Gap Year well spent is not only an unforgettable experience but helps your career enormously.

The Gap Year course is intended for people who want to gain new experiences, leaving aside all personal and academic obligations and above all, inserting themselves into the culture and customs of wonderful Spain.

The Gap Year Course has been created for students who want to maximize their time in Spain and invest in themselves. The course is perfect for those who want to learn the language quickly and very intensively.

The program starts with the level that the student has already achieved and will rise as they gain a higher level. Students receive intensive courses on Spanish culture and language, with the option to extend the course with classes of Business Spanish, tourism or legal Spanish.

The student also has the possibility to focus the classes to acquire specific knowledge for the examination of the Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE).

The Gap Year course consists of 20 lessons per week (4 hours per day) with a maximum of 10 students (average 7).
