School

Benalmádena has everything you could need to enjoy your language stay including white sandy beaches, warm sunny climate, and a traditional Spanish culture that celebrates the joy of food, friends and conversations as part of its national pastime.
Our premium partner school is located in a modern building with 20 large, bright, air-conditioned classrooms, a movie screening room and a roof terrace. The school also has free WiFi for students.

Course

The 15 general Spanish lessons cover the four main language skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing along with discussions and activities on Spanish life and culture. Your lessons will be with other international students giving you the chance to experience an international classroom environment while making friends from all over the world (class size max 12). These classes run in the morning, leaving plenty of time aside for excursions, sun-bathing, fiestas and homework! A level test taken by the student on the first morning ensures they are placed in a class suitable to their level of Spanish. Lessons are interactive and dynamic and a graded certificate is included on completion of the course.

Accommodation

Staying with a Spanish Host is one of the best ways to improve your Spanish and experience the Spanish way of life at first hand. To fully immerse you in the language, our partner school arranges accommodation with carefully selected Spanish hosts who are located either within walking distance or a short bus or tram journey from the school (max 25 minutes). The hosts are visited regularly by the school’s Accommodation Officer and are known to the school. Students are accommodated in twin rooms (single room on request) on a full-board basis. You will have breakfast and an evening meal with your host family and lunch is enjoyed in the school cafeteria and comprises of a hot buffet lunch of a 3-course meal. The host may sometimes have another student of a different nationality staying with them who also attends the school.

Activities

The school organises 4 afternoon and social activities a week, these can include volleyball, basketball, badminton, Flamenco dancing, Salsa dancing, a trip to Aqualand, a mini-cruise along the Mediterranean coast or a cable car ride. The school also organises day excursions to the local cities such as Seville or Granada along with 3 evening activities, meaning students are busy from breakfast to bedtime speaking Spanish all day.

You will be met on arrival by your Spanish Host or by a school representative and brought straight to your accommodation. Please be sure to email at least 2 weeks prior to departure to confirm your flight details. You will see your name on a board as you come through arrivals. We will also give you an emergency telephone number for the school which you should call in the event that your flight is delayed.

How will I get to school?

Depending on where your Spanish host is situated, the school can be within walking distance or a short bus or tram journey from the school (max 20 minutes).  You will be shown to your school on the first morning and the school can help you source a weekly transport passes if needed.

How will I know if I am in the right class level?

You will have a level test on the first morning before you start your course and will be placed in a class with other students of the same level. Your level will be monitored during the course and if you feel your class is too easy or too difficult then you should speak with your teacher or let us know and the Director of Studies will see if it’s possible to move you to a different class. Everyone at the school is very approachable and once you let someone know they will make sure that the move is as quick and smooth as possible for you.

When will I get my school and accommodation details?

Your accommodation details are confirmed as soon as we receive them from our partner school. This is usually 1-2 weeks prior to departure but can sometimes be much sooner.  At the same time you will also receive our pre-departure information with all your all school details and emergency contact numbers for your stay.

How can I book? When are fees due?

You can book online or over the phone – whichever is easiest. Once the form is complete all you need to do to secure your booking is to pay a deposit of €200. It usually takes 1-2 days before your booking is confirmed and the final balance is due 4 weeks prior to departure. You can pay either by card, bank transfer or cheque.

Can you arrange my flight?

As we are not a travel agency, we don’t book flights. However, we can advise on which flights would be suitable so please email or give us a call and we would be happy to talk you through it.
Please note, do not book your flights until you have received confirmation of your enrolment by Tribe Study Abroad.

Are there curfews? (Under 18)

Students who are minors (under 18) are required to have a signed parental permission form if they wish to go out in the evenings. For more information contact our office at 00 353 121 433 14 or through our Contact Us page.

If I have to cancel my booking will I receive a refund?

Please refer to our Terms of Business for further information on our cancellation policy.

Will I have to do homework?

All students are expected to be active in their courses. This includes a certain amount of homework –i.e. preparing vocab for the next day or a written piece based on what you have learned in class that day. Homework will be corrected and given back as this helps you track your progress. However, the amount of homework given will not affect your time for leisure – plenty of time to soak up the sun with a delicious ice-cream!

Can I go with a friend?

Yes, of course. If you would like to share accommodation with your friend just request it on the booking form and we will do our best to make sure you are accommodated together. If you are travelling on your own – don’t worry. You will soon make lots of friends and you will usually be sharing with another student close to your age.
