About OISE Segovia
Enchanting Segovia is home to OISE's intensive Spanish course for young learners, with programmes designed to challenge and immerse students in Spanish
language and culture. When established at a young age, a foreign language can be an inexhaustible resource for the future, and OISE has tailored the
student learning experience to make a real difference in learning Spanish.
Spanish Language Tuition
OISE's philosophy of total language immersion plays an important role, meaning the whole learning experience is structured to teach relevant vocabulary
and expressions, and to provide constant opportunities for students to reinforce what is learned in by applying it to natural, real-world situations, both
in the classroom and outside of it.
The programme : Spanish & Culture
Beyond traditional language course provision; as well as improving their Spanish students can expect to develop their life skills, subject knowledge, work
on projects and learn how to become more effective and autonomous learners.
Spanish Language lessons
These lessons cover the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing and include controlled practice in
language structures and lexis development to achieve a good command of grammar structures and vocabulary.
Life Skills lessons
Each lesson is linked thematically to the Spanish lesson which precedes it. The lessons cover areas such as study skills,
time management and being self confident. Subject lessons Students choose a subject such as Geography, Natural Science, Politics, Cultural Awareness, Spanish
The projects encourage autonomous learning, teamwork and completion of a task (such as a presentation, a video, a newspaper)
and cover areas such as journalism, theatre skills and debates.
Each student keeps a Learner Portfolio to encourage learning skills, self-assessment and reflection. Individual coaching
sessions allow students to monitor and improve their performance.
Spanish language course
The Summer School Programme is a full time course of 27 hours of tuition per week, with a maximum of 8 students per class. Through this course, we aim
to develop in our students an intellectual and social understanding which will lead to a fulfilling life, both personally and professionally. We do
this by delivering a full day of learning which focuses on language, academic literacy, subject literacy and social and cultural fluency.
Segovia has a plenty of places to visit such as the cathedral, castle and roman aqueduct, as well as cafés and restaurants so students can sample the taste
of traditional Spanish cuisine. During the evenings and weekends the school offers a variety of recreational activities that are organised to encourage
children to use Spanish in all contexts. At the weekend there is an excursion to Madrid or Guadarrama nature reserve, where there is rock climbing
