Student: Courtney Horwitz

Course: Parent & Child- Spanish Course

I can’t say enough good things about TLCDenia. Maria, Santos, Alex, all of the staff and all of the teachers are excellent. First, the teaching was superb. My husband, 5 year old daughter, and I all attended the family language camp for two weeks. Our Spanish improved and we had so much fun learning. The class my husband and I were in was relaxed, lots of fun conversations with classmates and the teachers but also serious about teaching. The teachers were all very skilled and pleasant to be with.

My 5 year old was in the younger kids camp and she loved it. The teachers were young and energetic and they went on fun adventures around town each afternoon.

TLCdenia, a fantastic language school…. in a great location. Our 6 year old daughter loves it here. We were nervous when we first enrolled her, as we had never left her with anyone other than family or school.

The staff especially “Maria and Kevin” could tell we were nervous and they were fab, they really went out of their way to explaining her day and what she would be doing and put us at ease. Her smile at the end of her first day said it all. She had had such a great day. Kevin’s art and craft skills are as good as any “Blue Peter” presenter! Our LG Spanish is coming along nicely and we have booked for April next year. Can’t wait to go back!!!

Thank to all at TLCdenia for making us feel so welcome and for looking after our LG!

Course: Spanish intensive 20

Greetings from Finland!

Students during their Spanish for families programme Mirka Savolainen with her daughter Erin in Denia

I attended an Erasmus+ -language course in TLCdenia, between 23.5 and 27.5 at 9.30-12.45 every day, 20 hours altogether. I was given an online Spanish level test prior to my trip and so when I arrived, I was assigned to a group that had approximately the same level of Spanish with me. The other students were lovely –Katya and Claudia and I liked the school and the teacher Beatriz very much.

Before the course I knew, that I had problems with using the past tenses, as I have almost always just used the present tense, but on the course I was able to tackle this issue. We studied the use of conditional on some of the days which was very useful for combining many of the Spanish tenses and putting them into use. We also studied the indirect style of reported speech and some colloquial expressions and proverbs and we also did a couple of listening excercises and homework tasks. The learning approach was very communicative and we were able to ask a lot of questions from the teacher regarding the Spanish culture and places to visit in Denia and the surroundings. The whole course was in Spanish and I enjoyed the challenge of communicating and being understood in Spanish without using English or Finnish.

After 5 weeks doing a Spanish course and an intership in TLCdénia, Moritz shares his testimonial:

The Erasmus Internship programme
In August 2015 I learned about the possibility to get a sponsorship on behalf of the ERASMUS Program of the European Union. The sponsorship supports an internship in a foreign country, which I decided to do in Spain.

How I got the internship
First I needed to find a company to take me for an – at least 4-weeks – internship. I found TLCdénia and applied. Mari Carmen, the director of the language school answered my application mail instantly and invited me for a Skype-interview in order to get to know each other and to sort out how an internship could be realized.

The interview went great but in order to take full advantage of the time, Mari Carmen recommended that I stay at least 8 weeks. Although I would have loved to, I could only negotiate 6 weeks with my company in Germany.

The internship was fixed to begin at 21st of March and so I waited for the time to come. In this period I studied a little bit of Spanish, so I wouldn’t arrive completely unprepared. I also had time to prepare all the documents for the sponsorship of the Erasmus Program and the necessary insurances.

My first day
The first day of the internship was at hand. I grabbed my uncles bike and arrived at the school at 9:30am as agreed. As soon as I arrived I came to know that I was able to join the morning course Spanish A2. Of course I accepted this offer and got to know the first teacher – and colleague of mine – Antonia. She was able to break down any barrier a student might have and taught the language in a very humorous way which helped to create a relaxed but focused atmosphere.
