Population 800.000

Description

 

The capital of the province of Valencia is a beautiful city at the Mediterranean coast. Valencia is one of the favourite destinations for international tourists, thanks to its mild weather, beautiful beaches, excellent food and its never ending life, during the day, but also at night. The modern part “Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias” is a unique example of modern architecture. Valencia is famous for its vibrant nightlife; in the city centre, the zones around the University and in summer at the beach and around the Port.

Serrano TowerLocated halfway up Spain's Mediterranean coastline and surrounded by La Huerta, Europe's most fertile slab of land, Valencia was destined to be one of Spain's stand-out cities, a destiny demonstrated by the civilizations throughout its history after its sea commerce and agricultural wealth.

Today, it has the culture, the energy, the sophistication, the shopping and the nightlife - particularly in El Carmen, around the University and along the beach front - expected of a major metropolis. Yet with the influx of attention, tourism and new "stuff," Valencia is one of the few Mediterranean cities that retains its regional character and pride.

City of the arts and SciencesAlong with the revival of the Valencian language, following the 1975 death of Spain's ultra-nationalist dictator Francisco Franco, Valencianos love being Valencianos and are proud to show it through age-old traditions, music, dances, food recipes, artisan crafts and festivals.

Leading these festivals are The Fallas, the fallas are enormous models made out of papier mache, wood and wax, and often characaturing Spanish social and political current affairs. The models are burnt on the night of 19 March in a festival of fire, fireworks and organized mayhem. Fireworks and firecrackers play a big role in any fiestas held in this region, and Fallas is no exception.

Student Groups Traveling to Spain

Students in a spanish lessonIf you’d like to come to Spain with a group of at least 8 students, we’re happy to help you design a personalized Spanish program with activities and excursions at discounted prices.

In order to assure the highest quality service and guarantee that the course is customized to your group's interests, we have established two types of groups:

Open Group
If the participants of the group do not have the same Spanish level, they will take Spanish classes along with the other students in the school, but the culture classes will be kept exclusively within the group. This kind of grouping is only available when you choose one of our general Spanish courses (10, 20, 20+5 or 25+5 lessons per week).

Closed group
All of the students participating in this group have the same level of Spanish and take classes together in the same classroom (maximum 10-15 students per class).

Host families are carefully selected to ensure that your stay be as pleasant as possible. We do our best to find home stays that will treat you as part of the family.
