Parent and Children Courses (Kids and Teen Courses)

This course is specifically designed for whole families to immerse themselves in the Spanish language and culture. Thanks to the programme the parents can attend an Intensive Course while the children attend courses – with the same schedule – specially designed for them:

- Our Kids Courses are for children aged 4-6 years and 7-11 years. In these courses children learn Spanish by playing and using a specific methodology that includes games, songs, worksheets, everyday situations, etc., so that the youngest can familiarize with the language and learn the basics in a child-friendly and motivating way. Our teachers, all qualified native speakers with extensive experience concerning courses for kids, put a lot of effort into making the Spanish language as enjoyable for the children as possible.

- Our Teen Course is for young people between 12 and 15 years. These courses, using a dynamic and active methodology adequate for the age of the participants, intend to increase the vocabulary and fluency of the teenagers and enable them to start expressing their selves on a basic level in Spanish in their personal environment and in their fields of interest.

Parent and Children Courses (Kids and Teen Courses)

ACADEMIC LOAD AND SCHEDULE OF THE COURSES 
The course consists of 20 weekly classes (45 minutes each), from Monday to Friday, plus sociocultural modules.
ACADEMIC LOAD AND SCHEDULE OF THE COURSES 

The Intensive Course, as well as the Kids Courses and the Teen Course consist of 20 classes a week (45 minutes each), from Monday to Friday, plus sociocultural modules of 5 hours being carried out during the week.

In general, these courses take place in the morning (from 10 am to 1.30 pm) or in the afternoon (from 4 pm to 7.30 pm). However, this schedule may suffer slight modifications depending on the season and the quantity of students.

We intend to give the Spanish lessons for families in the morning, especially if very young participants are involved. In any case, we guarantee that the courses for different members of the families are always held in the same time slot.

NUMBER OF STUDENTS PER CLASS 
There is a minimum of 1 student per class and a maximum of 8, with an average of 4 - 5 students per group for Intensive Courses and 2-3 students in Spanish Courses for Kids and Teens.
STARTING DATES 

Classes for the Intensive Course, the Kids Courses and the Teen Course begin every Monday all year (unless it is a public holiday), regardless of the language level.

On days of public holiday classes will not take place. However they will be held at a later stage of the week. If there happens to be two days of public holiday in one week, only one day will be made up for.

LEVEL TEST 

Before starting the Spanish course, students must take a level test consisting of a written part (multiple choice questions plus a little essay) and an oral part. After its correction and a short conversation with one of our teachers, the student will be assigned to the adequate level.

In case that the participants of the Kids Courses and the Teen Course have similar level and age (e.g. 10, 11 and 12 years) mixed groups could be formed, always under the condition that the knowledge of the language and capability of learning are comparable.

This test is free of charge and always takes place outside the course schedules. It may be taken in the previous week, if the student is already in Valencia. If not, the test will take place the same day of the beginning of the course before the class starts (usually at 9 am).

TEACHING MATERIALS 

The Intensive Courses’ teaching materials (textbooks and supplementary worksheets)are carefully worked out, updated and continuously improved by our teaching staff.

In the Teen Course the textbooks of Compañeros, SGEL will be used as well as complementary material carefully worked out, designed and chosen by our teachers to meet the needs of every single student.

In the Kids Courses the teachers utilise worksheets, handicrafts and activities with the computer individually prepared to meet the needs and the particular features of every group of children. All this material is also carefully worked out, designed and chosen by our teachers.

All teaching materials are included in the price of the course.

TUTORING SERVICE 

The school provides a tutor for you to discuss any questions that you may have without charging any extra cost. In general, these tutorials take place from Tuesday to Friday, from 1.30 pm to 2 pm or from 3.30 pm to 4 pm. You can ask your teacher of the Intensive Course to make use of this service.

CERTIFICATE 

At the end of the course, the students receive a certificate of participation stating the hours taken as well as the level reached.

TIMING REDUCTIONS 

With the aim of guaranteeing that each and every student is in the appropriate level and to avoid groups of students with differing levels of knowledge, the school reserves the right to implement the following changes to lesson times for the Intensive Course:

- In case of having only two students in the group, the daily class will be reduced to three sessions of 45 minutes each.
- In case of having only one student in the group, the daily class will be reduced to two private sessions of 45 minutes each. The original price will be unaffected in both instances.

IMPORTANT: In the case that the parents had more lessons than their children, the school does not hold responsible for under age students outside the teaching lessons.

Those over 10 years old can stay in the rest room of computers under the responsibility of the parents.

For children under 10 years old, the school can offer an extension of the teaching lessons or a service of "nursery". You can check the conditions and the extra cost of these servicies via e-mail at info@costadevalencia.com

FREE-TIME ACTIVITIES 

Apart from our Spanish language courses, we also offer up to four extra-curricular activities per day. Participating in these activities allows for students to put into practice the skills they have learnt in the classroom in an effortless and fun way. On the other hand, it is also a unique opportunity to get to know Valencia’s culture and people first-hand.

We refer you to our updated program of free-time activities.

SOCIOCULTURALS MODULES 

Sociocultural modules last approximately 5 hours a week and consist of presentations, debates, talks etc. and usually include visits to points of interests in the city e.g. museums or monuments. The topics addressed (festivals, Spanish politics, bull fighting, flamenco, gastronomy) put students in contact with a rich variety of aspects of Spanish and Valencian life.
