International House Valencia Spanish language course

Spanish summer course in valencia, spain

I am raising £700 to take part in a 4 week intensive Spanish course in Valencia, Spain. It is a great opportunity to improve my Spanish and learn about the culture of Spain.

Since I am studying Intensive Initial Spanish, my module includes this 4 week course to help me be prepared for the next Advanced Spanish level.

About me

My name is Reinis and I am a 2nd year student at the University of Essex. My degree is in International Languages and Modern Languages. I especially love the languages part of my degree because it provides me with the opportunity to learn about other cultures and I believe that extra languages will be very useful in my future career.

My story

The reason I chose to study at the University of Essex is because I loved what my course offers. I intend to make the most of my degree and go abroad in a Spanish speaking country in my 3rd year. I think that this experience will be a great test for my Spanish abilities and will provide me with an insight to what it is like to live in a Spanish community.

  • I will be attending an Intensive Spanish course at the International House Valencia school
  • Together I will complete 20 Spanish classes over 4 weeks and obtain a certificate for my Spanish skills
  • In the free time I will have the chance to attend Spanish festivities, go on field trips, experience Spanish food and hopefully travel through beautiful Spain
  • This course is incredibly important for my degree because it will give me a great advantage when I will begin the Advanced Spanish module next year
  • I think traveling is a great way to get a better understanding of other cultures and lifestyles and this time I need your help to make this course possible!
