This programme takes place in Benalmádena, a beautiful little seaside town located 15km south of Málaga. This former fishermen’s village has turned into a popular tourist destination with theme parks, waterparks, plenty of cultural attractions and shopping centres. In a residential area just 15 minutes’ walk from the waterfront and its beautiful beaches, the school occupies a lovely building featuring a large terrace where you'll be able to study, relax or play ping-pong. Free Wi-Fi throughout the school is available. The city’s sports centre, fitted with a gymnasium, swimming pool, football pitches and tennis courts, is just steps away – ideal for sports or taking a dip in your free time!

« Ja jag har gjort framsteg i språket. Jag har lärt mig några nya ord men framförallt har jag lärt mig nya koncept som att böja verb i framtiden. »
School highlights
« De roliga aktiviteterna som låter en träffa nya vänner och se Spanien. Maten i skolan var inte alltid toppen, men det fanns alltid goda efterrätter och drinkar. Den stora blandningen av nationaliter var också bra även om jag hade önskat att det kommit färre fransmän och mer människor av andra nationaliteter (många av fransmännen höll sig till sig själva eller kunde inte prata engelska). »

J'ai beaucoup apprécié ce séjour tant grâce à ma famille d'accueil très chaleureuse que grâce aux cours et excursions proposés par le collège Une infrastructure moderne et des cours de qualités, mais sur une classe de 14 élèves, nous étions 12 élèves francophones ce qui limitait les échanges en espagnol Enseignement de grande qualité Appartement très proche de l'école. La famille était très chaleureuse. Les loisirs étaient un peu redondants mais restaient bien. L'excursion a Cordoue était par contre vraiment géniale et le personnel très disponible.

Testimonials

Emma Tinri
Emma Tinri
Colegio Benalmádena, Málaga
Duration: 2 weeks

I had a great time in Malaga. I made friends with lots of other students from all over the world and it was a lot of fun. My Spanish teacher was friendly and I learnt a lot of new vocabulary. The campus is also great because it is close to the beach and it even has a swimming pool and many sports facilities. The host family was the best we could hope for: they were nice and patient with us, and they encouraged us to talk in Spanish when we were together. As regards activities, the excursion I liked best was the trip to Sevilla, because it is a beautiful city and the shops are awesome!

Host family
At your host family's home, you'll stay in a twin or triple room with one or two other students of the same gender. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know Spanish locals firsthand and ask them everything you want to know! This “second home” will help you feel at ease quickly. Seize the opportunity to speak Spanish in a relaxed setting. During the week, the family provides half-board and lunch is taken on the terrace or in the school's canteen in the form of a hot or cold buffet (Spanish and international food). For Saturday excursions, you'll receive a packed lunch. On Sundays, your host family will provide you with full-board, offer you activities and share their daily life with you. Bed linen and bath towels are provided but remember to bring your beach towel. The travel time to the school is around 20 minutes’ walk.

Every Wednesday, get ready for exciting trips to Málaga, Marbella, Mijas or Nerja during the half-day excursion. On other weekdays, there will be lots of sports on offer. Form your own basketball team and play against the other students during a game organised by the activity leaders, take part in flamenco classes, play table tennis, have fun with your new friends at the pool or the beach and get a nice tan while relaxing in the Andalusian sun. You will also have the opportunity to take a mini boat trip in the Mediterranean or to spend a few hours at a waterpark. During the Saturday full-day excursions, you will visit the Alhambra in Granada as well as beautiful cities like Seville, Cordoba or Ronda. In the evenings, disco parties are very popular and you’ll also be able to go bowling, watch movies in Spanish or take part in sports tournaments. At the end of your stay, you’ll know the Spanish history and lifestyle like the back of your hand.

Spring programme
The spring programme includes 3 afternoon activities per week, a half-day excursion to visit local attractions and a full-day excursion on Saturday (Granada, Seville, Ronda or Cordoba). Evenings and Sundays are spent with the host family.
