The Teen Course was launched in June 2008 due primarily to the many requests received from former Junior Program participants who were then 16 or 18 years old and were looking forward to returning to study in Salamanca with us.
This course is designed for Teenagers, between 16 and 18 years, who want to learn or improve their Spanish learned at high school or for their own personal enjoyment.
Classes are held daily and homework is always assigned. Teachers are demanding and only Spanish is spoken in the classroom.
During their daily 3-hour classes, students study and practice all aspects of the Spanish language: grammar and composition, vocabulary and conversation. Students receive a Diploma at the end of the course.
Accommodation and food are a very important part of the Spanish experience. Our families are carefully selected and each one has been visited. Two students share a room. Some families have children of their own and students take part in family life. The families live near the school - 10 to 20 minutes on foot .
All three main meals are included. Students receive a packed lunch with sandwiches and fruit on excursion or pool days. Estudio Sampere ensures that the meals are healthy and balanced. It is essential to note any special dietary requirements on the registration form.
In July and August, students can also chose to stay in a residence instead of with a host family. It offers double rooms (max 40 students), with buffet-style full board and laundry facilities. In the residence, two computers for the students and wi-fi (wireless) connection are also available.
The Teen Course includes cultural lessons, sports and many other activities at no extra cost. A different activity is planned for each day except Sunday, including: visits to museums, group events, a day at the swimming pool and excursions and field trips outside Salamanca.
Meeting young people from other countries is a rewarding part of the program, broadening the students' view of the world. The activities allow and encourage these contacts. All activities are supervised by Estudio Sampere personnel.
