Students learn Spanish from our native speaking monitores

This school trip offers students an invaluable opportunity to converse and engage with native Spanish speakers in real-life situations at every turn. Our experienced Spanish-native monitores from the Arbolar centre will guide your group and gently encourage them to use their Spanish throughout their stay. 

Students will learn water and beach sports with fully qualified water sport instructors whilst experiencing Spanish culture and using their language in a supportive and encouraging environment. Learners have the chance to meet the local community and experience an authentic Spanish neighbourhood on a guided visit and 'market mission' to a local town, test their culinary skills and create a typical Spanish dish, or try their hand at salsa dancing - all conducted in Spanish of course!

What's more, our monitores lead a fun programme of evening activities to keep your students learning, occupied and entertained at all times and giving teachers the chance to take a well-earned breather. This trip is jam-packed with language learning and is certain to boost every student's confidence and excite them about the possibilities that come with speaking another language!

Due to the growing popularity of this programme, we now offer two accommodation choices in the historic seaside town of Águilas, both offering the same activity programme and both run by the same Arbolar team you are used to.

The Bea Beach centre feels more like a modern hotel than a student hostel, boasting super modern and comfortable ensuite rooms, all with air conditioning and access to a lifeguarded pool. The centre has plenty of common areas where your students can chat, relax and use the free wifi. The Bea Beach is just a short walk to the wide sandy beach and marina port where your group will enjoy beach games and supervised watersports with the Arbolar team.

Our latest residency, Nova Beach, is situated within the Senator Aguilas Hotel. Expect ensuite rooms with single beds and all the amenities required for student adventurers such as the exclusive use of your own hang-out area, language classroom and activity space. Located on the seafront with views across the harbour and beach, Nova Beach also offers free wifi and access to a lifeguarded pool.

The Nova Beach is just across the road from Bea Beach which means that very large groups can be comfortably accommodated across both sites.

The Murcia region is well linked by airlines and groups can fly from most UK airports.
