Elcano Spanish School in Alicante organizes during the summer the program “Summer Camp”, an amazing camp to spend a great summer. It is a perfect occasion to continue learning the language in an incomparable environment like the city of Alicante and in a near and safe way.

Our program is aimed at students between the ages of 13 and 17 who want to learn Spanish and get to know the culture and customs in a different way. The main objective of this course is to offer learning focused on communication and offer the student maturity as a person. Likewise, it is a unique occasion to know and share different cultures, always in Spanish and perhaps in some other supplementary language. Students are in contact with other students of different nationalities, host families, and different teachers. All this is aimed at maximizing your capabilities in a relaxed and monitored way.


The program includes an intensive course, taught by qualified native teachers who are eager to teach their students Spanish in a fun way. From the first day the lessons will be geared towards fostering collaboration, communication and participation so that all students can speak Spanish throughout their stay. Students will not only practice all aspects of the language, but will also learn about everyday life and habits in Spain.

To enrol for this summer Spanish course, each student will have to complete the online registration and the level test to later be able to choose the best option.
Our pedagogical team will incorporate you into a suitable group, according to the criteria of our specialists and based on your knowledge of Spanish.

Before your arrival, each student will receive information about the host family, the profile and the rules of the house to establish a good coexistence. Before your arrival in our city, you can send a whatsapp or an email to your Spanish family introducing yourself. The Elcano Spanish School guarantees simplicity in the process and familiarity but always with security. Take this opportunity!

Students will stay with centrally located Spanish host families, located within a 5 – 20 minute walk from the school.

All the families that collaborate with the school have been previously selected and have been accommodating foreign students for many years, their experience guarantees a favorable adaptation of the student and consolidation of knowledge.

The program includes full board accommodation (breakfast + lunch + dinner) and our family department will take note of any food intolerances, allergies or any other issue that is important to you. If you need a special diet (vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free, gluten-free,…), you can request it in advance (supplement €21/week).

Students will stay in single rooms. If you are traveling in a group or with family members, you can request a double/triple room.

During the stay, each week the school will organize between 7 activities supervised by teachers/monitors and which will take place in the city of Alicante.
