Study Spanish in Segovia
Spanish courses in Segovia for learners aged 13 - 17.
Small class sizes ensure that each student receives individual attention from their tutors, providing a learning experience which is unique to their needs. This close proximity between students and teachers fosters close relationships and a supportive environment, which builds confidence amongst the young learners and encourages them to succeed.
Teachers push students to achieve to the maximum of their potential, and set milestones and goals for each student, with constant evaluation. This sets the pace for each learner to surpass their academic expectations and achieve more than they thought possible.
In tandem with Spanish language development, the course piques the intellectual curiosity of the learners by exposing them to a range of authentic sources from different academic subjects, which in turn develops their critical thinking skills as they discuss and analyse them.
The mix of nationalities in the classroom and the wide range of materials covered creates an international outlook amongst students, broadening their horizons and exposing them to new ideas, cultures and ways of thinking.

The Experience of Living in Segovia
Segovia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985, is an incomparable place of study. 90 km from Madrid, this attractive and dynamic city is home to some of Spain's most interesting examples of architecture: the city centre, where the old historic quarter is housed, protected by medieval ramparts, the aqueduct, a jewel of Roman engineering that has become the city's symbol, the Alcazar, the Royal Castle overlooking Segovia, and the Monastery of San Antonio el Real, are all evidence of the city's sumptuous past, where different cultures meet. The bustling streets offer museums, boutiques and cafes allowing students to immerse themselves in local Spanish life. Segovia also has stunning natural surroundings, and is located at the foot of the spectacular mountain range of Guadarrama.
OISE Segovia organises leisure activities and excursions for learners during the week and on Saturday, allowing learners to immerse themselves into Spanish language and culture.
