The total number of students can reach 65; the average group size is 5 students, with a maximum of 8. It is very easy, therefore, to contact all the school staff, both teachers and administrative or managerial. Actually, relation with teachers is one of the most important values you will find while you are here. You relate to your teacher in the classroom, but also to other groups’ teachers during coffee breaks or other activities. You can also join our programme of language exchange with Spanish students. You will see that it is not difficult to practice Spanish with natives and out of the classroom All these points sum up to reach our objective: helping you learn Spanish in a relaxed, familiar and entertaining environment. Methodology Most of your course will focus on talking: with your teacher, with other groups’ teachers, in and out of the classroom, during coffee breaks, with our secretary, in the activities, with the guides who will show you Santiago; in the market where your are likely to go one day with your group and teacher (a tip: do your shopping there. The women from the groceries, fish and meat stalls love chatting). Of course we must save some time to teach you the grammar rules that will allow you to speak so much. The activities we propose in the classroom are focussed on encouraging the dialogue and the exchange of ideas. That is the aim of the discussion topics we introduce, exercises in groups or pairs... We like dealing with current events: they encourage the dialogue as any other, but moreover they are useful to let you talk about them to the family you live with. We intend to make what you do in the classroom useful “out there”. The classrooms are arranged so that this methodology is possible: they are large enough, sunny and decorated to make you feel at ease there. And what is more important, students and teachers sit around the same table, which encourages conversation and makes it easier. Activities In Santiago, especially in certain periods of the year, there are also many things to do or to see: concerts in all the historic district squares during the summer, many of which are free; museums, also free, as the Etnográfico do Pobo Galego (Galician People Ethnographic Museum); all kind of exhibitions… We will let you know everything happening in Santiago while you are here. Furthermore, Iria Flavia organizes at least 2 free activities weekly. In the summer the average is of 4 activities a week: - The first day we invite you to a guided tour around the city followed by tapas in the historic district. This activity is carried out if there are at least 5 students beginning the course. - Visits to museums, exhibitions, historic buildings. - Attending to concerts, cinema, theatre… - Commented movies. - Spanish music samplings. - Language exchanges with Spanish students. - Afternoons of popular Spanish games (cards, table games) - Visit to the editorial office of the city newspaper El Correo Gallego.
