Students of Spanish language decide in favour of a low-priced alternative to Spanish host family

Learning a language does not only mean to learn vocabulary and grammar, it also means to get familiar with the culture belonging to a certain language. The last two years more and more Spanish language students realised this connection between culture and language by means of a class trip to Valencia. In Valencia the students of Spanish language get to know a beautiful city, Spanish culture and practise Spanish at the same time.

Usually the school classes, mainly coming from Germany, Italy, England and Norway, decided for the accommodation in host families. The accommodation as well as the class trip itself, spare time activities and the language course can be organised by the Spanish language school in Valencia.

But frequently the stay in a host family does not coincide with the expectations of the participants of the class trip.
“The idea of the constellation of the host families as it exists for example in Germany is not very popular in Spain. Instead of living in a family of a father, mother and often more than one child, the students find themselves living in an apartment together with a divorced or widowed women who finances her standards of living by the accommodation of guests“, explains Andreas Teßmer, director of the Spanish language school Costa de Valencia.

Therefore, a new trend can be noticed recently among the language students who decide to spend their school trip in Valencia. More and more Spanish language students decide in favour of a well-priced alternative to Spanish host families which they organise by themselves: the accommodation in one of the numerous youth hostels, like the Nest Hostels situated in the centre of Valencia. There the whole group has the opportunity to find accommodation in private double rooms or in shared dorm rooms with a maximum of 12 beds at reasonable prices.

The concept of the Nest Hostels is based on the establishment of a community of young travellers. The structure of Nest Hostels reflects the idea of sharing; everything in the hostel is collectively by its guests: the kitchen, the bathrooms, the dorms and even a bar. Thus, the hostels create ideal conditions for the school classes to meet young people from all over the world.

Despite the organisation of the accommodation by the classes themselves, they often ask for help of Spanish schools in Valencia regarding the organisation of the school trip and free time activities. The Spanish language school Costa de Valencia offers to take responsibility for the organisation of a stay. They consider the individual needs of every class to create a program and also offer a tutor to accompany the group. Due to its status as an official educational centre the school can offer entrances for many famous Valencian attractions at reduced prices, like the Bioparc or the Ciudad de las artes y las ciencias. The language school also organises Paella contests, Salsa dancing, a visit to the natural park La Albufera and a lot more.

In this way, the Spanish language students have the possibility to experience an unforgettable school trip with their whole class in Valencia, to learn Spanish and get to know Valencian culture at the same time.

Since 1995 the language school Costa de Valencia has focused on teaching Spanish to non-native speakers. This language school, which is situated in the heart of Valencia, is a Centro Acreditado of the Instituto Cervantes and a member of many associations.
The teaching material, which is used during the lessons, is worked out by a team of well-versed teachers. One of the most important aspects of teaching in this school is the individual involvement of every single student. This way every student has the possibility to speak very much during the language course. Furthermore, both managers place big value the quality of the language lessons and a broadly diversified leisure programme.
