School Spanish Language Study Trip to El Puerto de Santa Maria
El Puerto de Santa Maria is located in Andalucia on the beautiful ‘Costa de la Luz’ (‘Coast of Light’). The city is across the “bahia” from the historic city of Cadiz and just over an hour from Seville. Today El Puerto is renowned in Spain for its beaches, its gastronomy, flamenco and sherry.
In this corner of Spain your students can improve their Spanish, totally immerse themselves in the language and culture and live like the Spanish do. The Spanish language school is just 10 minutes from the beach and has 7 fully-equipped classrooms, many of them with interactive whiteboards. Upstairs is the residence, with 13 bedrooms (10 of which include en-suite facilities), as well 2 communal kitchen areas, a communal dining room and an audiovisual room for watching Spanish movies and TV. Students also have the option of staying with carefully-selected Spanish host families resulting in a total immersion Spanish experience.
