Learning Spanish with AiL

Spanish courses for teens

For over 10 years, we have dealt with High School Programs for students under 18 years old, which is why we can say about ourselves, that kids are in good hands with us!

Since this course is based on everyday situations, a strong foundation for practical and easy to apply language skills can be built.

Students gain lots of confidence through four daily 50-minute lessons over 4 weeks. Living in a host family with similar-aged children completes this program, since speaking is encouraged in a familiar atmosphere as well. This experience will be unforgettable for you, since we organize a series of trips to magical and one-of-a-kind places in this paradise on earth! Our Spanish program for teens contains 20 Spanish lessons per week plus excursions on 5 days a week. The whole program has a length of 4 weeks. The prices for this program include all entrance fees for museums, national parks, board and lodging and transportation. There will be a bilingual tour guide on all excursions.

Host families

In order for you to enjoy your exchange program from start to finish, you will be placed in a carefully selected host family, who will share their daily routine with you.

Our families are as varied as a bowl of exotic fruit; some of them may have small, big or no children at all and some may be married, divorced, widowed or single parents. The most important factor for us is to know you will be taken care of and living with caring family members. Since we also work with families from all kinds of social statuses, some students may have to share their bedroom with a same-sex sibling.
