20 hours of classtime per week with an additional 10 hours of cultural and leisure activities.
OPEN offers six levels of Spanish: Beginner, Elementary, Pre-intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate and Advanced.
Classes are programmed in the mornings from 10 am to 2 pm. A minimum of 4 students and a maximum of 8 per group allows the teacher to engage the students in lively interaction.
Even at beginner’s level, only Spanish is spoken in class. Students learn to use grammar and vocabulary in an entertaining and practical way, with an emphasis on oral communication.
For Irish transition-year students, the content can be adapted to cover the Leaving Certificate syllabus.
The cultural and leisure activities take place after lunch and are programmed from Monday to Thursday. The exact schedule will depend on the activity and what is available at the time of the course. A Spanish teacher accompanies the students at all times.
Activities may include:
- Sightseeing tour of Seville.
- Visit to Cathedral and Giralda.
- Visit to Seville Football Club stadium.
- Visit to a food market.
- Visit to museums and sights.
- Visit to Roman Ruins at Itálica in Santiponce.

Students will be given a packed lunch for their full-day excursion. Sheets, towels and laundry are provided. Most of our families are located within a 20-minute walk of the school.
If you are interested in requesting accommodation for 2 students together in the same family, please let us know.

New! Online Individual Spanish courses
If you want to practise your spoken Spanish with a native teacher in a dynamic environment from wherever you are in the world, then our online course is what you need.
OPEN will send you a link to a platform (ZOOM or TEAMS) where you can connect from your computer, tablet or mobile device. Just like face2face classes, the teacher engages in lively classes sharing material with you and correcting you in the chat. As the classes are individual, the teacher will help you with any special challenge you might have with the Spanish language. This will be particularly helpful towards the Leaving Cert oral exam.
All our teachers are native Spanish speakers with many years’ experience teaching Spanish to students from different levels, ages and backgrounds. They are also familiar with the Leaving Cert syllabus.
