Intensive Spanish Language Summer School for Health Science Students
Course description Intensive Spanish Language Summer School for Health Science Students
The intensive Spanish course for Health Sciences students is designed so that the student has 50 or 100 hours of contact and develops an independent learning process during their free time, as part of their preparation. They can take advantage of the facilities offered by the language immersion of the environment and the social cultural activities of Zaragoza. The course consists of Spanish language classes, where all oral and written skills are taught weekly in classes and workshops. Students of the same level will be grouped together in all language-related activities and the workshops will be specific for Faculty of Health Sciences students. The theme will be selected by the teacher and the students, according to their needs and the group's specialty. The classes will take place both inside and outside the classrooms, making the most of real-life situations, the language immersion and the available facilities.
The classes are distributed weekly by subject:
• 2 hours a day of Language Use (production and interaction in the areas of oral expression and listening comprehension),
• 2 hours a day of Language Use (production and interaction in the areas of written expression and reading comprehension),
• 1 hour a week of Workshop: Introduction to Hispanic-Spanish History and Culture, (LSP) Business, Sport or Health Sciences Spanish, Gastronomy and Leisure, Cinema, etc.
• 4-5 hours a week of "Discovery Workshop" at the end of each week where all the groups meet once a week visiting Zaragoza, usually the most important historical or social cultural environments, and participating on amazing activities organized specially for them.
