Meal times are one of the best opportunities to socialize with  your host family, speak Spanish or Catalan and learn more about Barcelona. You will take Spanish or Catalan classes with your host teacher and go on 2 cultural visits a week with them. All in all, spending as much time as possible with your Spanish or Catalan Teacher and family will ensure you maximize your opportunity to learn as much Spanish or Catalan as possible in Barcelona.

Student Arrival (and Departure)

You will be met at the airport by the Spanish or Catalan Teacher or host family who will then accompany you to their home, where you will stay. For your own safety and to make sure there are no travel problems, you will also be taken back to the airport when you leave.

Both you and the teacher will be given photographs of each other and have copies of personal details, including telephone number and flight details in case there are any travel complications.

What Your Host Family Expects from You

"What you learn in class you practise with your host teacher out of class."

 

You will be part of real Spanish or Catalan home life during your stay. This experience will improve your command of Spanish or Catalan. It is logical that you will have to adapt a little to the habits of the family, but you will be able to enjoy their friendship and yet, on the other hand, be independent.

 

“The best way to learn a foreign language is to go to a foreign country”

 

Many people think that living in a foreign country means you learn the language, but this isn't true. Many immigrants, after living in America for 20 years, still do not speak a high-level of English. This is why our philosophy of "total immersion" plus Spanish or Catalan classes with a qualified teacher and family will give you a boost to your level of Spanish or Catalan and your confidence in speaking Spanish or Catalan. Spending as much time as possible with your Spanish or Catalan teacher or family will give you the exposure that you need to the language and culture.

 

In reality your host family expects very little from you. You must follow the house rules and have a genuine interest in finding out about the Spanish or Catalan culture that you are experiencing and learning about in Barcelona.
