We fully realize that not all learning takes place in the classroom and that a language course should not only consist of lessons. Therefore, our school offers a variety of exciting social activities for our students. CILE organizes meetings where you can practice your Spanish in a relaxed atmosphere and have the opportunity to talk with students from other countries. These visits to places of interest serve as an oportunity to practice the language in another context, an educational and cultural context different from that of the classes.
The responsable travel agency, offers different options to travel around the cities in the region of Andalucia that will allow the student to know a little more about Spain, the people and the culture. Those trips usually take place on Saturdays. You will have the opportunity to know Cordoba, Granada, Seville, Ronda, Nerja, Frigiliana, Benagaldón, Gibraltar, and much more (it is possible to get to know a city every week). Each city has its particularity as the Alhambra of Granada, the Mezquita de Córdoba, Cathedral of Seville and the beautiful Spanish beaches.
