What do our students think about Teen summer programmes?
He asistido al programa de Summer camp. Son los mejores! Escuela muy organizada y los monitores son fantásticos!!
Really enjoying this camp so far. 🇬🇧🇪🇸🏴☠️🏴☠️
International House Valencia/Españole. Some of the best times of my life. The people at the school were so nice, interesting, so different and were from countries all over the world! All my teachers represented authentic Spain from the South, East and Madrid and each class was a special and unforgettable spectacle. I loved the teachers! After my 4 months in this school my life has a part before Valencia and after. There is not a day when I don't have thoughts about school. If I had the choice... I would prefer to study in Spain for a longer period of time.
