Just like our French Language Immersion programme at the Château de la Baudonnière, the emphasis in Murcia is on learning Spanish outside the classroom. It's all about combining Spanish language learning with fun, hands-on experiences and activities. Typical activities include cooking Spanish dishes on the local beach, sailing or kayaking using the centre’s fleet of boats, visits to the mud baths, observing flamingos and herons in the bird sanctuary opposite the centre, visiting local lead and silver mines, structured visits to the local village where students can interact with the locals and excursions to Cartagena, Murcia, Salinas de San Pedro or even the Terra Mitica theme park.
Our Spanish Immersion Centre is located in the wonderful region of Murcia and boasts a perfect position on the banks of the Mar Menor. This beautiful lagoon is separated from the Mediterranean by a sandbar and is known as the 'world's largest swimming pool' because of its warm, clear waters. This makes it a great location for water sports and observing marine life. Within easy reach of Alicante and Murcia airports, it's no wonder our idyllic Spanish centre continues to attract so many school parties.
Meet your 'monitore'
Your party will be divided into groups of ten, each accompanied by a centre ‘monitore’. Our monitores are native Spanish speaking and they converse in Spanish with your students as well as leading the group throughout the week.
