At Spark we believe that learning a language is more than going to class in the morning. Learning a language is also a personal experience, an opportunity to meet other people, a chance to immerse yourself in a different culture, a time for personal development and much more. This is why we put a lot of emphasis on our Social Events Programme, as we thoroughly believe that this plays a very important part in making your Spark experience not just a fantastic experience, but one you will never actually forget.
In our Social Events Programme we combine various activities to allow our students to make the most of their time here, by combining cultural activities, such as sherry or wine tasting, horse riding shows and days to explore El Puerto, with nature days, where you visit beautiful beaches or go for a hike in the mountains, and city trips, to Sevilla, Marrakesh or Granada, to name just a few.
Our Social Events Coordinator is a special person who is in charge of organizing and leading these activities and they will also encourage you to speak as much Spanish as possible on these events. The Social Events Programme is organised for all our students with a lot of enthusiasm and eye for detail.
Below is an example social cultural week programme. Please note that special events programmes will exist around major cultural events times, like Feria and Carnival, to maximize the student participation in these magnificent events.
