Spanish Work and Study in Valencia

Location 

This beautiful Spanish language school is located deep in the heart of Valencia's old town, just a step away from all the interesting sights and services. The four storey former palace has  been carefully renovated into a stunning language school that compliments history with modernism. Inside the school you will see walls from its 11th Century Arab roots which penetrate through the classrooms and open spaces, creating both an atmosphere of history and mystique. There are 28 classrooms, all of which are filled with natural light, have full air-conditioning facilities and interactive whiteboards. If studying in a stunning location rich in history isn't enough, during breaks students can also make the most of the relaxed, well equipped social spaces, use the computers and wifi, enjoy the reading area with books and magazines, relax on a choice of two patios or bask in the sunshine on the breathtaking roof terrace, complete with sun loungers, fruit trees and a shower in which to cool off.  

Language Course

The course comprises 20 lessons which concentrate on learning and actively using Spanish. The tuition is very much practice oriented. You will participate in group sessions alongside other students of a similar level, with lessons focused on improving all aspects of the language; speaking listening, reading and writing. There are four, 50 minute lessons per day and these take place during the morning.
 
You will be given a written assessment before you travel and a speaking assessment on the first morning before lessons in order to place you in the group most suited to your ability level. Classes have an international flavour and a lively feel because they are grouped by ability not nationality or age.
 

Work Placement

There’s no replacement for using your language skills practically in real life situations and in the country where the language is spoken. On a Work & Study trip you will have the opportunity to improve your Spanish language skills in the morning lessons and then be exposed to the language in a practical work situation for the afternoons, giving you the optimum chance to gain confidence in all areas!

Typical placements include shops, restaurants and hotels, though a wider range of placements are available. Our placement team take great pride in securing placements that meet our students' needs. See here for a link to our business categories.

Accommodation 

To completely immerse yourself in the Spanish language and culture there is nothing better than staying with one of our carefully selected Spanish host families. They will not only introduce you to the Spanish way of life and help you practise the Spanish language but will also give you a taste of local and delicious regional specialities. The host families are situated near to the school and provide half board accommodation (breakfast & evening meal) from the Sunday before your Work & Study course starts to the Saturday after it finishes. Subject to availability and at a small surcharge, an extra day on one side of your trip may be available on request to facilitate flight dates.
 
You can read more about what it means to stay with a host family in the FAQ section of our website. 
 
Transfers from the airport are available at an additional cost. The tram network in Valencia is extremely good and many students use this to travel from the airport to their host family destination.
