Sevilla Town HallIt’s only natural that Sevilla, as the artistic, cultural, financial and social center of southern Spain, serves as the capital of this fascinating region.

The winding, cobbled streets lead you to hidden baroque churches, intimate plazas, great shopping areas, and world-renowned museums like the Fine Arts Museum. Jump on the bandwagon and and cheer along with the sevillanos, as Sevilla has the best bullfights, concerts, and football games. Or sit back and revel in the theatrical and classical music offerings of Sevilla’s theaters. Plus, as the birthplace of the Spanish phenomenon otherwise known as tapas, Sevilla is like a gastronomical playground. Restaurants, cafés, and bars line the streets and serve up a mouth-watering array of typical Andalucían food and drink.

Admire the massive Gothic cathedral- the biggest in the world!- and the totally different yet equally stunning Mudéjar-style Alcázar palace, neighbors in Sevilla’s old city. Ramble through thePlaza de España at night winding alleys of Santa Cruz, the city’s former Jewish quarter, then cross the historically important Guadalquivir River to the grittier Triana, traditional home of gypsies and flamenco.

Be in Sevilla during the spring, as hooded penitents march alongside beautifully adorned floats during its famous Semana Santa (Holy Week) processions, followed two weeks later by the lively and colorful Feria de Abril (April Fair), the week-long fiesta of dancing, polka-dotted flamenco dresses, and the perfected sevillano art of simply having a great time.

Spanish Courses

 

Flexibility, variety and quality: these are the elements that define Spanorama Spanish programs in Spain.

Intensive Spanish Language and Culture (INT1)

Spanish lessonA program of 20 lessons per week with a maximum of 11 students (average seven) per class at 8 different language levels. Students can choose to study anything from 1 to 40 weeks. This program contents two lessons of Grammar and two lessons of Conversation.

We have become convinced over time that in order to speak a language, a solid grammatical base is imperative. Every day the classes begin with the presentation of a structural element of Spanish grammar and continue to illustrate its use by applying it to real life situations.

After this the focus of the class changes to the students' oral skills. Sessions are based around topical themes, incorporating material from previous lessons. This allows students to continually build on their prior knowledge, improving their vocabulary and fluidity. We always teach using situations from everyday life.

This program can be completed during the afternoon conferences on History, Art and Literature.

 

 
Intensive Spanish Language and Culture in Reduced Group (INT3)

Students at lessonA program of 20 lessons per week with a maximum of 6 students (average 4) per class at 8 different language levels. Students can choose to study anything from 1 to 8 weeks. This course contents two lessons of Grammar, two lessons of Conversation.

This program is designed to help students make progress in a shorter period of time or to achieve a very good command of the language after a longer period of time.The progress of the student in this class will be carefully monitored by the teacher, which is part of the benefit of having a smaller class.

The program may be completed during the afternoons with the 5 weekly lectures on History,Art, and Literature.

 
Individual Spanish Language and Culture (INT4)

Flexibility is the main feature of this program. As the only student in the class you can decide how many hours you would like to study per week, the timetable and content of the course is up to you.The content can include grammar, conversation, traduction, economics, literature or any other subject... it's up to you!

This program is usually recommended to students who only have a short period of time available to study. Additionally this course is useful for students requiring specific knowledge, for example in translation, economics, literature or perhaps conversation.

 
 
Preparation for the Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE)
lesson
This exam is the only one officially recognised by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science. It is also widely recognised in the business world.

This is a program of 25 lessons per week with a maximum of 11 students (average seven) per class and lasts from 1 to 11 weeks.The first and second lessons every day focus on grammar.The next two lessons are conversation classes and the last lesson is an exam practice session using past exam papers.

The exam is part oral and part written, therefore the course involves audiovisual comprehension exercises, specialized texts, and compositions which gradually increase in difficulty depending on the level of the exam which the student is preparing for.

The Certificado exam is for intermediate-level students, the Intermedio for those in the advanced level and the Superior only for those with a fluent knowledge of Spanish.

Homestay

Staying with a Spanish family or in a Spanish home is an ideal way to enrich your experience and to reinforce the knowledge gained during your course at Mester through practice. Being in direct contact with the local culture means that you will really make the most of your stay as you gradually get to know the authentic Spanish way of life.

We have known many of the families for years and we can assure you that all have extensive experience providing accommodation for international students. They have been selected according to their level of culture and for the personal attention that they can provide for our students.


There are four possibilities for living with families: 

Single room and full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
Single room and half board (breakfast and lunch or dinner).
Double room and full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
Double room and half board (breakfast and lunch or dinner).

Student apartments are typical family dwellings, each with several bedrooms, a kitchen (fully equipped with cooking utensils, washing machine and refrigerator) and shared bathrooms.They are shared by students of all nationalities.This arrangement can enrich the international aspects of the stay.

This is an inexpensive accommodation choice, so don?t expect many luxuries. They are furnished in a basic style and do not have a telephone or a television set.

The 'community rules' of sharing a flat include an agreement that you will also be responsible for certain things: e. g. contributing towards the cleaning of the flat, cooking your own food and always remembering to respect your flatmates and neighbours.
