Alicante - the best place for summer holidays
Alicante is located in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula, directly on the Costa Blanca – one of the most beautiful Spanish coasts. The Romans named the city "Lucentum", city of light, and captured the character of this radiant palm-lined city facing the sea, which enjoys an extremely pleasant climate. A hectic pace is unknown here and the "Siesta" is still taken seriously. People relax along the beautiful boulevards and promenade to enjoy a coffee, a Horchata (almond milk), or a Granizado (iced lime drink).
Although Alicante is the heart of tourism on the Costa Blanca, it banished the tourism industry from its gates and retained its charm as a Spanish university town. Despite its 330,000 inhabitants, Alicante is a village in which almost everything is within walking distance, and acquaintances often cross paths.
Students won’t be bored! The programme is thought to have a complete linguistic and cultural immersion. They will learn the language in the classroom in the mornings and in the afternoons and evenings they will have the possibility to practice with the Spanish teenagers and monitors through a wide activity programme. We offer such activities as:
- Beach games in Playa San Juan.
- Water sports (surf, sailing and kayak)
- Archeological route around the ruins in El Campello
- All day excursion to visit the province
- Shopping and Dancing lessons (Salsa).
The extracurricular activity-programme is organized together with Spanish teenagers. That way the students have as well outside the classroom the possibility to practice their Spanish in a relaxed and collegial atmosphere. All activities will take place under the professional and experienced monitors’ supervision.
