Au-pair in Valencia: the best way to learn Spanish

Press release from: Costa de Valencia, S.L:

A Spanish school for foreigners organizes long duration courses for au-.pairs.

Valencia. Learning Spanish in Spain is with no doubts the best way to learn the language: it implies living the language, and not only studying its grammar. Despite of this, not everyone can afford to move to Spain to study Spanish: the living expenses in a foreign country can be pretty high, not to mention the price of a language course.

A good way to study abroad without spending too much is to work as an au-pair in a Spanish family: that’s what Kira, a girl form Germany, did in order to improve her Spanish. A school of Spanish for foreigners helped her finding a family that needed an au-pair and in the end Kira had the chance to spend a year in Valencia, working with the family and attending a long duration Spanish course at the same school that helped her finding the family.

Kira was very satisfied with this experience:
“It was a very positive experience. Working as an au-pair gave me the chance to improve my Spanish and, what’s more, I didn’t have to worry too much about money because by working with the family I gained what I needed to pay the Spanish course and to go out and enjoy the city of Valencia.”

Kira also tells us the advantages of attending a long duration course rather than an intensive course:
-“This way you have more time to familiarize with your teachers and become friends with other students. In addition by living with a Spanish family I could experience Spanish culture from the inside.”

Like Kira many students decide to attend long duration Spanish courses which combine the study of the language in class with real life, not only for a few weeks, but for a long period of time.

Costa de Valencia, school of Spanish, offers a wide range of courses and long duration courses are part of the offer. This type of course, offered in different levels, is perfect for those students who want to learn the language little by little, and not in an intensive way.

The school has a long experience in teaching Spanish to foreigners and is officially recognized by the Instituto Cervantes as a centre for Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language and is an integral part of the Network of Cervantes Institute Associates.
