Responsible tourism: Learn Spanish in Granada, Spain

We value our role within the community and regularly attend neighbourhood meeting where we help with decision making. We encourage all of our students who come to learn Spanish in Granada to use the local shops and stalls close to the school so that they can get a feel for the history and culture of the city and so that they can support local business.

All our teachers are employed from the local area and the accommodation provided, within walking distance from the school, is owned by local landlords or families. We ensure that the accommodation places our students in the centre of the community and that they will play a part in typical Spanish life.

We do not charge for the organisation or administration of activities, students only have to pay the entrance fees when at the particular place of interest. Therefore the money from our students goes directly to local businesses, guides and the attractions here in Granada.

We work with charities that help teenagers and young immigrants who have recently arrived in Spain with basic or no knowledge of Spanish. We provide them with teaching materials and support to help these people with their Spanish studies. This is important for us as we can use our main forte to help those in need.

We have written a Code of Conduct for all of our students and teachers. They can refer to this during their stay with us and again when traveling in the future. The Code specifies how you can be responsible and environmentally sustainable. We believe that if our students do at least one thing that is included in the Code then we should make a difference.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Stepping out on the terrace and facing the magnificence of the Al Hambra Palaces in the sunshine. It’s one of those wonderful places you spend your whole life gazing at in pictures, but when you see it for yourself it is far more than any picture can portray. Attending the school every morning gave structure to the week and the staff were most helpful in their advice, maps, directions and so on.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Granada is a special place. The scenery, the flamenco, the people, the general ambience and quiet confidence is wonderful.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes of course. We visited all the local restaurants, caught the local buses and bought food from the local markets. All the information is available in the school, with bus routes, and plans. In addition, the tourist information office is just in the main square, La Plaza Nueva, with lots more ideas and information. The staff were most helpful. They arrange activities every night and accompanied by one of the teachers it is a truly authentic experience.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


A wonderful experience, which we are looking forward to repeating. There is no greater testimony. Our children went to the school for a week's course, just before GCSE and A level Spanish to improve their fluency. It was really beneficial and surprising how much you can improve in just one week of continuous dialogue.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Finding out I was not too old to learn new tricks - beginning to learn a new language at 61 was very encouraging to continue the course as soon as I have available time.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Be brave and go for a long course (four weeks at least) to become fluent. I was just beginning to feel capable at the end of a week.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes, the school employed local well educated tutors, we visited local restaurants and historic sites, information was plentiful on the use of local transport etc to get there.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent, the school and it's staff were well organised, encouraging and excellent value for money. The accommodation offered at the school site was basic but enjoyable for the company.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


It is so good, I am still here - have arranged to stay an extra week!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Be prepared for lots of waiting around on the organised trips out - punctuality is not a quality of either Spaniards or students! You only need casual clothes, although one set of reasonably smart causal clothes is needed for weekends if you want to go to certain bars. Bring a decent dictionary - as all of the classes are only in Spanish, you really need to be able to look up the words. This is especially important to help with the homeworks

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


We went out most nights to the local bars and often to local tourist attractions, it must have helped the local economy and our use or public transport was also significant

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


It was great, and hopefully I will still think so at the end of another week.
