ABOUT JEREZ DE LA FRONTERA
Jerez is a nicely sized, very attractive and easily accessible city which, in addition to its great variety of high quality sports facilities, has a privileged geographical location just a few minutes from the Atlantic beaches and the sierra. Its warm climate means that it can be enjoyed at any time of the year
Few places in Spain are known to enjoy such a vast international prestige. Because of its wine, Jerez or Sherry, the name of the city crossed international
borders many years ago and has since become truly universal.
However, Jerez is not only characterised by its wine and unique architecture but offers much more: it is the home of the Carthusian horse and the Bullfighting ,
the cradle of flamenco, a city of motor racing and other important events, and the site of a city centre declared as of historical and artistic significance.
Nowadays, Jerez is a big city where tradition coexists in perfect harmony with the latest modern features: big shopping centres and avenues come together in a cheerful and busy historical city centre, where shopping and tapas bars go hand in hand. All these special features, in addition to its extraordinary geographical location and climate, to unique and different tourist attractions and to its modern facilities, transform Jerez as the perfect city to live in and study.
There are a staggering number of equestrian events in which this noble creature can be seen. The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and the Yeguada La Cartuja; Hierro del Bocado, have weekly shows. There is also the annual Horse Fair and many equestrian events forming part of the Harvest Festival.
Jerez’s exceptional geographical location, its close proximity to the Atlantic, the local chalky soil, the palomino grape, and the careful ageing of the grape must, all combine to give the world the pleasure of this unique product known the world ever as sherry. Lovingly aged in wine cellars often linked to cathedrals due to their spacious silence. The production of these wines is protected by the “Official Regulating Body for the Authenticity of Jerez – Xeres – Sherry”.
Easter week is one of the most heartfelt and deep-rooted fiestas celebrated in Spain. This commemoration has centuries of history and tradition, remembering the passion and death of Jesus Christ. Music, art and colour come together in magical processions - solemn parades in which crowds of people accompany religious images on their route through the streets.
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!
Encouraging you to know our culture, our language, our land and being part of an spanish family
The adventure start here!

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.
