An unique approach that combines languages, sports and leadership.
Our language program is designed to fully immerse our students in a learning journey that will boost their language skills and their understanding of Spanish culture. We achieve the best results possible by combining formal lessons with day-to-day experiences, all in Spanish!
A local group of qualified coaches manages the sport element of our camps and we use the modern municipal facilities to guarantee our students a great time outside the classroom. All sessions are conducted in Spanish so they will also be working on their Spanish and using it for real life purposes.
We believe that leadership skills are one of the most important attributes that a young person should develop to become a successful and confident adult. As well as having teacher-led sessions, students will take part in group-based projects that will foster independent learning and leadership skills.
Our teachers are talented professionals with wide experience and passionate about what they do. They are fun, approachable, and prepared to cater for all our students’ needs. At HSI we regularly review or currciulum to adapt it to different cohorts for a maximum impact.
All of our formal lessons are conducted at a local private school where we have full access to all the facilities; classrooms, ICT suits, cafetería etc. We have also access to some municipal sport facilities including, pools, tennis courts, etc.
All our host families come from the town of Illescas and go through a selection process conducted by our director of operations. They are from well-known backgrounds in the town and are recruited through our connection with local schools and familiar with hosting students
