Even for large School groups, we divide the students into several classrooms in order to have a higher interaction between students and teachers. All the lessons are lead by our native, qualified, experienced teaching team, either within our school premises or outdoors (according to your preferences). Our team not only performs highly engaging lessons but also keeps an eye on the weak points of every student in order to later provide them with specific tools or exercises with which to strengthen their skills. Regarding our educational immersion programme, we use a deeply communicative approach that will allow you to get steeped in both language and local culture from your very first lesson.
