A Spanish program designed exclusively for students who are benefiting from the European Erasmus program. A great opportunity for personal and professional development.
What is the Erasmus Get Up course?
The Erasmus Plus programme falls within the framework of the European regulations that grant subsidies within the sports, educational, training and youth spectrum. Basically, it is a great opportunity for professional development. But it also possesses an extraordinary ability to contribute greatly to the personal development of its participants.
Get Up puts at the disposal of all participants of this programme a set of activities and experiences aimed at achieving a deep knowledge of Spain – fundamentally its language, its culture and the way of life or of ‘being Spanish’.
Our objective is to ensure that a student of Spanish is able to function with complete ease in real situations, enriching themselves from all points of view.
Our Spanish programme for Erasmus starts every Monday of the year. We are constantly forming groups, so the student will have a course when they need it.
Are there subsequent course costs?
We include all the necessary academic material in our programmes, so you are not subjected to additional course costs.
You can participate optionally in our activities and excursions. Most of them are free of charge, however some of the excursions have an additional affordable cost negotiated to maximise involvement.
What is the difference between this Spanish course and Erasmus?
Our programme has an added value. From the beginning we base our teaching method on the maximum group participation and interaction. The groups are very small with maximum number of students set at 8 to 10 per class.
The facilitation of maximum speaking practice in real situations is our main aim. To this end we consistently offer participation in activities and excursions. The inter-personal interaction of students is fundamental so that optimum progress in communicative fluency is ensured.
What is the Spanish course for Erasmus like?
The Spanish course for Erasmus consists of a completely flexible configuration of lessons as we adapt to your needs and possibilities. Our Erasmus students usually stay for various lengths of time – usually from 3 to 10 months – in Valencia so Get Up adapts to every circumstance offering the lessons and programme that each student wishes. Our schedules are therefore very variable with morning or afternoon schedules depending on the specific needs.
Lessons are spread throughout the week. You will be able to choose the number of weekly lessons you wish to receive. Please note that the approximate duration of each lesson is approximately 1 hour. Our advice is to take a minimum of between 2 to 4 lessons per day, supplementing them with the parallel activities that we propose weekly.
The educational methodology seeks to cover the main areas and skills of the Spanish language:
- Written Compression
- Oral comprehension
- Written Expression
- Oral expression
What are the Spanish teachers like?
