The aim of the CSS Valencia team is to give students the best possible opportunity to improve their language and fluency while being completely immersed in Spanish life.
Living with a Spanish family, studying Spanish every morning, interacting with locals and experiencing Spanish culture gives you the best opportunity to improve your Spanish in a short period of time.
Lorcan – Programme Director
As programme director, Lorcan’s objective is for students to fully immerse themselves in Spanish language and culture. Thanks to his experience of teaching Spanish in Ireland, Lorcan has personally designed the classes to cover all key aspects of the Junior Cert and the Leaving Cert curriculum. Students will participate in exciting classes with native Spanish teachers who understand the challenges that face the typical Irish student. Lorcan and his team are confident CSS can provide students with the best opportunity to improve their Spanish language skills whilst leaving plenty of time for fun in the sun!
