Spanish Camp en Llanes
Language Immersion Program in Llanes
Learn spanish having fun in Asturias!
Llanes is a small coastal town in eastern Asturias. It has 50 kilometers of coast, 32 wonderful beaches and a spectacular landscape.
This program has been designed to assure that youngsters learn Spanish while they enjoy their stay in an environment in which every detail has been taken care of to make them feel as if they were at home.
To youngsters from 12 to 16 years old
International Atmosphere in Asturias
Live an absolute Spanish experience to discover the culture and the natural environment of Asturias.
Spanish lessons every morning, with native teachers, in small groups and separated by levels of knowledge. In addition, the cultural trips and the activities proposed will also be in Spanish. Learning a language requires big effort and dedication. We will make it enjoyable but the pupils will have to work in order to reach their goals.
The course contains 20 hours of lessons per week in groups of 10 students maximum, making sure they receive personal attention to their needs. From Monday to Friday, they will study Spanish during 4 hours (with some breaks in between!). Weekends will be spent exploring the region and discovering more about the local culture.
The course will be taught by Peak Me Languages, a local Spanish school, with high qualified teachers and experience in teaching for more than 7 years, designing language programs and learning materials to learn a language in a fun and structured environment. Formal sessions are combined with activities in which the students have the opportunity to interact with local people and learn the most interesting things about food and culture.
The use of games, videos and other audiovisual materials, as well as other activities such as cooking, make their lessons a fun and effective experience that will turn into a positive memory for our students during a long timeafter they have returned home.
They will learn how to use the language in daily life
Primorías Llanes is a combination of 4 charming rural houses, connected 2 by 2, inside a 5.300 m2 property and located at La Pereda, a tiny village 2 kilometres from Llanes city centre. It is a family company with a wide experience in rural tourism in Spain.
Each house has capacity for 10 to 15 people inside a 200 m2 area, divided in two flats. It is a place designed for them to feel at home.
Bedrooms are shared by 2 or 3 people, and each house has 3 bathrooms.
The program complements the lessons with cultural visits, completely in Spanish.
These activities will offer another vision of the culture and asturian gastronomy. It is programmed, at least, a full day trip and two half-day trips during their two-week stay.
- Examples of full-day trip: visit to Covadonga’s Sanctuary, cave and lakes in Picos de Europa National Park, Cangas de Onís or Museums like the Jurassic one.
- Examples of half-day trip: visit to Tito Bustillo’s Cave, with prehistoric paintings, Ribadesella, a traditional family-run cheese factory or a visit to the village of Llanes.
Sport as a way of communication
SURF is the main sports activity of the camp. They will practice several days during the stay. The lessons are given by a qualified team of surf instructors, who belong to an official school of the Asturian Surf Federation. They are always supervised by a senior technician in physical and sports activities.
If it’s their first time surfing, our team will teach everything they need to stand up on the board and catch their first waves. If they already have some experience, they will be able to enjoy advanced classes in order to improve their technique.
In addition, to increase outdoors activity time, so as to enjoy as much as they can and make friends during the camp, we have programmed:
- Beach games
- Night games
Youngsters will be accompanied by our team 24 hours a day and also supervised by a camp coordinator
Healthy and balanced food
For us, diet is very important. Doing sport requires a special energy support. We take care of the menu and the quality of the food to assure that our campers are healthy and enjoy everything we offer.
The day starts with a delicious breakfast. After the activity a great meal waits for them to recover energy. Fruit will always be available and dinner will be light and pleasing, letting them rest to be ready and fresh the next morning.
In the afternoon a snack will also be offered. Always healthy food and with nutritive value.
Menus can be adapted to cater for special requirements
