The García Lorca Club
You are also warmly welcomed into the Garcia Lorca Club. With Garcia Lorca, you will receive an exciting choice of monthly social activities through our club, which is attended by a large number of our teachers, students, and staff. With our club, you have an excellent vehicle to make friends and discover Spain. In addition, you get a chance to socialize with the teachers and office staff of Garcia Lorca, instead of just seeing us behind desks.
This is the real bona-fide “family vision” that we foster. Everyone in the Spanish programs who wishes to, participates in the Garcia Lorca Club and the one or two extra-curricular activities a month that Garcia Lorca offers to students (pub nights, road trips, excursions, movie nights, dinners, etc.). These events are attended and run by Garcia Lorca directors, teachers and staff. This is the key to our friendly, family environment, that we take great care to create and encourage.
Our club is an enjoyable part of our program that is unique to this school. The Club is supported by a monthly newsletter, with details of the monthly events, a conversation topic, as well as a student of the month. This greatly helps to integrate everyone in the school and the Garcia Lorca Club, where students of Spanish, friends, family and teachers mix and have a great time together, creating lasting friendships and memorable experiences in Spain that last well beyond the duration of the Spanish courses.
The program also includes Spanish culture classes on history, civilisation, art, politics and drama. Our cultural agenda has included guided excursions to attractions such as the Medrano Cave in Argamasilla de Alba, where, according to popular legend, Cervantes was kept prisoner, and where he started writing Don Quijote; the famous Celtic-Iberian city of Numancia, and the Roman Amphitheater and impressive ruins of Segóbriga, a famous Roman city that was discovered about thirty years ago near Madrid.
This improves the relationship between teachers and students, who become friends and thus creates a better atmosphere in the classroom and enable a greater understanding of the life of the country, its residents and culture. The activities facilitate getting in contact with Spaniards which considerably accelerates the cultural learning process.
The Madrid center is located at Calle Claudio Coello º50, approximately 5 minutes walk from the Banco de España subway line in the heart of historic, downtown Madrid, which has a wide variety of cultural, shopping and entertainment activities.The school is open from 9.30 to 18.00, Monday to Friday.
