Do you want your children to make progress in the Spanish language and have difficulties to choose the language school or environment best suited for your son or daughter from the multitude of offers?
Maybe we can help you with your decision. At our Spanish language school in the South of Spain, things are familiar and the students immerse themselves in Spanish life with our help. You will stay with a warm and open-minded host family selected by the directors of the language-school, have Spanish lessons in the mornings in our language school, which is located in the pedestrian zone, and in the afternoon the students have the opportunity to participate in various activities organized by the language school team or to spend time with the host family. The distances in our village Prado del Rey are short and safe, people know each other and there is a functioning village community.

Is this language course suitable for your son/daughter?
This language program is designed for students from the age of 15 at comprehensive schools, grammar schools, secondary schools, vocational schools, vocational high schools and technical colleges who have Spanish as a school subject and want to improve their Spanish skills during the holidays.
How does the language course work?
In this Spanish course the students have 4 lessons of 45 minutes each day in small groups (3-6 students) with experienced native Spanish teachers who make the lessons very communicative, varied and entertaining. On the first Monday there is a placement test in order to divide the students into homogeneous learning groups. The weekends are free of lessons and a chance to do something with the host family or with other students.
We work with our own materials at all levels, which are created by our team of teachers and compiled for each group.
Academia Pradoventura is a small family-run language school with a personal atmosphere and individual attention. In addition to the language courses, the school’s dedicated team organizes a varied leisure program. The free time activities are optional and can be booked at fair prices on site at the language school. More about the language school…
Where does the course take place?
Prado del Rey is a small Andalusian town in the Sierra de Cádiz, which has preserved its authentic character without any significant influence from international tourism. The inhabitants are very open-minded towards visitors and generally do not speak any foreign languages, which makes it easy for students to quickly settle in a purely Spanish speaking environment. Surrounded by the natural parks of “Sierra de Grazalema” and “Los Alcornocales” and with good transport connections one hour from Cadiz, Jerez, Seville and Ronda, Prado del Rey is an ideal starting point for cultural excursions and outdoor activities.

Where do the students stay during the course?
Students are accommodated with carefully selected and open-minded local families who live within walking distance of the school, which has many advantages for the students. During their stay they taste typical dishes, learn about habits and customs and share many moments of conversation. Throughout their stay a friendly relationship develops, which often lasts beyond their stay. We recommend that there is one student per host family. However, if your daughter wants to study with a friend or your son with a friend, some families can accommodate two students. Siblings can also be accommodated in pairs in a host family.
Are the students looked after outside the language school?
In cooperation with the host families, the language school has drawn up a set of rules that underage students must follow. The language school’s supervisors and the host families ensure that these rules are observed. The students can walk to school and back to the host family on their own. After lunch until dinner, students are free to move around freely, but at least in groups of two. After dinner they may only leave the house with an adult from the host family or from the language school. The school’s counselors call the students and families to make sure that all students are at home when it gets dark. Please provide your child with a WhatsApp-enabled mobile phone, which is required for communication with the school staff and host family.
