The summer course class of 2019 made a video blog of their wonderful experiences at CSS Valencia:
Our 3 week Study Spanish in Valencia course in an action-packed course for secondary school students studying Spanish who want to immerse themselves in Spanish life.
Join Gloria, Eva, Isaac, and the rest of the class of 2019.
They enjoyed themselves throughout the activities such as paddle surfing, bowling, and cycling through the city. In addition, they also find time to try the tapas, go on treasure hunt, learn Spanish songs, visit the aquarium and the water park. And, of course, have some time on the beach!
Teachers here at CSS Valencia are native Spanish teachers who have years of experience teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Moreover, they are familiar with the Irish Curriculum. They know what is expected at both Leaving Certificate and Junior Certificate Level.
Students will learn in a fun and relaxed environment. They will also get to absorb the culture, sights and sounds of the amazing city of Valencia, Spain.
Anna, her Spanish teacher, interviews Asia at the end of her 4 week CSS Valencia TY programme in Les Carolines school in Picassent, Valencia:
Asia: Yo fui a Andorra a esquiar con Laia y su familia y fue muy divertido. Fuimos a ir a las compras o a comer. Nos quedamos en un piso. Después del las clases, voy a el patio con Laia y sus amigas Raquel, Carla y Alicia. Van a ir a Dublín. Cuando el colegio finaliza, voy con Laia al gimnasio o en el centro a Valencia a ir de compras.
Las clases no han sido muy difíciles. Hice un pequeño proyecto sobre la gente famosa y personajes históricos, como Leonardo da Vinci y Ché Guevara.
CSS Valencia offers a Transition Year Spain course specifically for Irish secondary school students, giving them the opportunity of spending a period of time from 4 weeks up to a whole academic year fully immersed in the culture of Spain.
During this time, participants will have the full support of CSS Valencia staff to help them to make the most of their time abroad.
Our students live with a Spanish family and attend a local secondary school in Valencia, Spain, together with the children of their host family. They get to experience Spanish culture from the perspective of within a family and also have the huge benefit of a 24 hour environment in which they can make great progress on their language skills.
