SWIMMING & SPANISH/CULTURAL SUMMER + HOMESTAY
: This is a fantastic summer program for teenagers, boys and girls (competitive swimmers) to enjoy all about Barcelona and improve their level of Spanish while they keep their rutine of daily swimming practice with professional coaches.

ABOUT THE SWIMMING PRACTICE: The quality of the Intensive Swimming Program is the same whatever is your option of program. The only difference is how many days per week you train. All options have the same program cost per week so you can choose how many days of practice you want to attend once you are here. Those participants who do not attend daily Swimming practice will attend Spanish classes in the mornings and cultural program in the afternoons. You can check your options once you are here.

YOUR OPTION OF SWIMMING PROGRAM:
The standard Swimming & Spanish Summer Program program includes 4 days of intensive Swimming practice (Monday-Thursday) with professional trainers. Because the training sessions are very intensive we suggest to train a maximum of 3 times per week for the younger participants (14 and 15 years old). Older participants can train 4 or 5 days per week according to their option.Swimmers can decide about this part of their Swimming Program once in Barcelona.

LOCATION IN BARCELONA: SpainBcn-School is locate in the very center of Barcelona, in one of the nicest and elegant areas of the city, in the main avenue of Passeig de Gracia, less than 5 minutes walking to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas.
