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 aged between 14 and 17 who want to learn Spanish and learn about 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 offers different alternatives but there is always incorporated anintensive course, all the classes being taught by qualified native teachers and eager to teach Spanish in a fun way to their groups. From the first day, the lessons will be oriented to encourage collaboration, communication, and participation so that all students can speak in 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 enroll in this summer course in Spanish, each student will have to take the level test to be able to choose between the best options.
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. You can always communicate before your arrival in our city, send a WhatsAppor an emailto your Spanish family to introduce yourself. The Elcano Spanish School guarantees simplicity in the process and familiarity but always with security. Take this opportunity!

Students will stay at the home of very central Spanish families, located 5 – 15 minutes 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.

We offer accommodation with half or full board (breakfast + lunch + dinner) and our family department will take note of any food intolerance, allergies or any other matter that is important to you.

In case you don’t want to share your stay in a family home, other alternatives can be offered such as student residence, hotel or shared apartments.
