I really enjoyed studying Spanish in San Sebastian. I highly recommend Carmen and her family. They made me feel very comfortable and made sure I had a great experience. Bonus points for food!

Bra planerade dagar i en härlig stad Skolan ligger bra och centralt men kanske inte i det mysigaste området. Det hade varit kul med fler personer från olika mindre länder. Rummen var enkla men hade det som behövdes. Badrummet fungerade för de behov vi hade men saknade ett fungerande lås. Måltiderna var rikliga och goda, man blev alltid mätt. Kontakten med familjen var nästan obefintlig. Dagen vi anlände pratade vi mycket men sedan sågs vi knappt. Till exempel så åt vi aldrig middag ihop utan den stod alltid klar vid den tiden vi hade bestämt. Sen vid tiden vi skulle lämna så var hon inte heller hemma utan vi skrev en lapp och tacka för veckan. Sonen i huset såg vi knappt till. Vill även nämna att hunden i huset är inget att rekommendera för hundrädda personer då den skäller ofta och kan rufsa till bland ens grejer. Ändå så passade detta boende mig och min kompis då vi fick sköta oss själva mycket. Båda har varit i staden tidigare och kan staden utan problem. Vi är också skötsamma och respekterade resans regler. Utbudet kanske inte passar alla då det är mer riktat åt vattenaktiviteter. Surfen passade mig i alla fall. Utflykterna var roliga och man fick se något nytt samt lära sig något nytt då guiden var riktigt bra.

Séjour agréable : la famille était très sympathique et accueillante. Les cours m'ont apporté de nouvelles connaissances. Je me sens plus à l'aise en espagnol. Un regret : j'ai trouvé les activités de l'après-midi (à part le surf qui était super) décevantes. J'aurais aimé plus de visites culturelles (découvertes des églises, musées etc). Famille très sympathique, très accueillante. Cuisine soignée.... J'aurais aimé des activités plus intéressantes : visites culturelles du centre de Donostia par exemple...

När det gäller LANDET, vill jag påpeka att mitt intryck gäller endast den spanska delen av Baskien, alltså inte hela Spanien:-) Infrastrukturen och klassrummen har jag som förälder inte sett, men jag blir tvungen att välja ngt. Jag har inte haft möjlighet att skaffa ett eget intryck, så min bedömning baseras exklusivt på mitt barns berättelser. Det som jag tyckte var mindre lyckat var en incident då en lärare hånade eleverna och dessutom tog hjälp av en extralärare som en sorts förstärkning. Som lärare vill jag aldrig hamna i en sådan situation då min lojalitet gentemot en kollega testas med risk att utsätta elever för hån. Om det mitt barn berättar stämmer, tycker jag att respektive lärare saknade professionalism vid detta tillfälle. En annan sak som jag vill lyfta fram var att trots att läxor nämns i skolans policy, inga sådana gavs till mitt barn under kursens gång (två veckor i juli i San Sebastian). I San Sebastian som resten av Spanien äter man middag mycket senare än i Sverige, och lunch är som en sorts mellanmål... så en viss anpassning krävs för att trivas, men maten är mycket, mycket god:-)

« Ni kan kanske påminna ärarna att göra mer av vad de lovat, i synnerhet då elever kan artikulera sina behov och är medvetna om vad de vill förbättra. Exemplevis bad mitt barn om att få en tydligare förklaring ang. tempus på spanska (dåtid), i form av övningar och kontext som belyser val av olika former för dåtid, utan att få någonting. Läraren kanske glömde, men det är synd, för då uppstår besvikelse och man blir mindre motiverad. »

Host family
You make faster progress when you’re immersed in a language and its culture. The host families, selected with care, are there to accommodate our young students, but they also provide a reassuring home, family supervision and the possibility to practise the language daily in a relaxed atmosphere. What’s more, sharing the daily life of a Spanish family opens doors to the local culture, allowing you to experience the local customs and traditions close up. Participants stay in single or twin rooms (when travelling with a friend). All families live a short walk or bus ride from the campus and provide breakfast, dinner and takeaway picnics for lunch.

During the week, the school offers many activities. Enjoy San Sebastián attractions, scavenger hunts, chocolate tastings, picnics on an island, museum visits, excursions to nearby cities and lots of sport! You will be offered beach activities, an introduction to Basque Pelota, kayaking, martial arts, paddle boarding, surfing and dance classes to learn salsa or merengue. On Saturdays, the full-day excursion will take you to discover Spanish destinations like Bilbao, Pamplona, Guernica and Vitoria or French cities like Biarritz or St Jean de Luz. These group excursions contribute to creating a fun atmosphere and strong bonds between the participants from all over the world. This is a chance to practise Spanish in varied contexts!
