Sampere Spanish Summer Program for Teenagers
This special Spanish summer course
for students aged 13 to 16 combines Spanish study with a
holiday in the famous city of Salamanca. Spanish lessons
in small classes are combined with activities and
excursions, as students experience a new culture
and make international friends.
The Spanish Course: The Spanish course is the most
important part of the junior program. Classes are held
from Monday to Friday and homework is always assigned. The teachers are
demanding and only Spanish is spoken in the classroom.
In three hours daily, students study and practice all
aspects of the Spanish language: grammar and
composition, vocabulary and conversation. Students who
successfully meet the course objectives receive a
Diploma at the end of the course.
Accommodation: Accommodation and food are very important
parts of the Spanish experience. Spanish families: Our
families are carefully selected and each one has been
visited and inspected by the staff. Two students share a room. Some families have
children of their own. The families live near the school
–10 to 20 minutes on foot– and students take part in
The three main meals of the day are all included.
Students receive a packed lunch with sandwiches and
fruit on excursion or pool days. Estudio Sampere ensures
that the meals are healthy and balanced. It is essential
to note any special dietary needs to be stated on the registration
Activities: The Junior Course includes cultural, sports
and many other activities at no extra cost. A different
activity is planned for each day except Sunday,
including: visits to museums, group events, a day at the
swimming pool and excursions and field
trips outside Salamanca.
Meeting young people from other countries is a rewarding
part of the program, broadening the students' view of
the world. The activities permit and encourage these
contacts. All activities are supervised by Estudio
Travel to Salamanca: Participants should arrive at
Madrid-Barajas airport before 6 PM on the Sunday before
the start of the course. A private bus waits at the
Madrid airport which transports our Junior Course
participants comfortably to Salamanca.
The bus makes one trip in the late morning and another

less than three hours. Participants who arrive on
Saturday will be personally escorted to the bus terminal
to take public transportation to Salamanca. Estudio Sampere staff
meets the students upon arrival in Salamanca.
