Study Spanish in Spain
Are you considering a study abroad programme in Spain during your TY? There is no better way to improve your Spanish language skills than being in Spain itself, amongst Spanish people whilst experiencing the Spanish culture.
Don’t just take our word for it. Student Clara recently returned from Cadiz where she spent 2 weeks on the TY Intensive Programme. Here’s her wonderful feedback about how her language skills have improved –
“I definitely feel like my language skills have improved drastically, between speaking Spanish all of the time with my house mother and the incredibly helpful and informative classes I have come out the other side of my trip with a greater knowledge of the tenses and an extensive vocabulary range.”
We have carefully formulated a top quality range of study abroad programmes for Irish students wanting to study Spanish in Spain. And we have chosen only the best destinations as we know that you will also want to have fun during your stay.
There are 3 course choices for TY students.
1. Secondary School Programme.
This popular course provides an exciting opportunity to gain confidence and fluency in Spanish. You will start with an intensive 2 week language course at a top language school for foreign students, and then continue with your usual high school subjects, but taught in Spanish, at a local high school with local students. Learning in Spanish will be challenging at first, but provides for a highly rewarding and character building experience. The programme also provides you with plenty of free time outside of school to relax, enjoy yourself, meet new people, discover new places and truly experience the local culture, lifestyle and cuisine. You can stay for 6 weeks up to one whole academic year!
2. TY Intensive Courses
The TY Intensive Courses are a great way to improve your Spanish with other foreign students, in a short period of time. You can live and study in Spain for 2 weeks up to 6 weeks.
