Oh yes, it takes a lot of courage…
Something amazing is waiting for you: the experience of standing on your own two feet! By simply overcoming challenges without your parents, you will come to know yourself more deeply. And who knows? After your stay in Spain you might at last discover what you would like to become in the future?
At the end of your stay, you will speak Spanish fluently, you will have got to know a new school system and you will have been immersed in a different culture. This is absolutely marvellous!
We – the Openmind Team- will be by your side during this time, supporting you with our time and advice!
Requirements for the programme
- Being between 14 and 18 years of age upon arrival
- Holding an average home country academic grade of “C” or above
- Basic knowledge of the Spanish language*
- Demonstrating the maturity and flexibility needed to participate in an intercultural program
- Being of good health – on a physical, emotional and intellectual level
*Two years of language classes are recommended. The participant who has not yet learned Spanish in school must – for their own interest – take an intensive Spanish course before their departure in order to attain basic language knowledge. Openmind also offers a language course near Barcelona, just before the High School Year starts. Please don’t hesitate to ask us for more information.
