High School in Spain

HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Semester or Year abroad programs allow students from 14 to 17 years old to attend a public or private high school with Spaniards their age. This is an authentic cultural and linguistic environment to increase their understanding of Spanish culture, society and style
of life, while teenagers becaming to fluent speak Spanish language. 
This is a fun way to learn and highly formative experience that will enriched
the student.
The teenager will follow the some guidelines and duties as the rest of the class mates and will be treat as an equal peer.
The option of living with a Spanish family is a very good way to profound understanding of Spanish culture and traditions.
But you have the option of living in a boarding school . It will also give them the opportunity to form strong friendships with others at their school in an atmosphere of shared experiences.  

Your Home Life

The host family is seen as being responsible for the students' welfare and we insists on their role as "parents". Sometimes families may host more than one student, but they will always be a student from a different country and of a different first language so that Spanish is spoken in the home.
All Spanish host families are sourced, vetted and screened through our Spanish organisation based in Jerez.
Host families are carefully selected by the coordinator after an interview and a home visit according to very definite selection criteria: availability, receptiveness, good sense of welcoming, good accommodation conditions.
Placements are always in safe residential areas, which guarantee good conditions. Placements are mostly made in Jerez de la Frontera.
Host families have a genuine interest in learning about the countries of their students and exposing themselves and their children to another culture.
The host families will provide: a genuinely caring environment, clean and comfortable surroundings, full board, and a shared or single room.
The families are visited and counselled through regular contact with the coordinator during your child's stay.
Your child is truly considered a member of the family, equal in rights and duties, and they share the day-to-day life, including leisure and outings; in return they are asked to comply with family rules.

YOUR ACADEMIC JOURNEY

The Spanish school system is divided into Seconday with 4 grades and Baccalaureate with 2 grades.
Examinations for students depends on trimester exams results, completion of daily homework and attitude in class and the final exams.
Private schools start in early September while public schools start in mid-September.
End dates are late May for 2nd Bachillerato students and late June for the rest.
The school year is divided into 2 semesters:
1st semester: September to December
2nd semester: January to June.

This inmersion into Spanish language, culture and life for the student, is a good way to reach the goal.

We are a very enthusiastic and professional team. 

The origin of the idea to create programs for student abroad is based in our own experience as we were young students in UK.
We went to learn English with a language programme. It was an experience that changed our way of seeing the world, a wonderful adventure that we never forget.
So we know that the student will improve their language skills
but we also know that they are going to live an adventure that will remain forever in their memories.
We are waiting for you to live this wonderful experience!

Del 30 de marzo al 5 de abril acompañamos a 28 chicos de nuestro colegio a un programa de inmersión desarrollado por Linstart y la escuela de idiomas EC de Brighton en el Reino Unido.

Sólo tenemos palabras de agradecimiento por la magnífica organización y desarrollo del programa.
La acogida, las familias, el curso, la ciudad y sobre todo el personal de Linstart y de EC merecen un 10 de nota.
No dudamos en repetir la experiencia en próximos años.
