20 hours of classtime per week with an additional 10 hours of cultural and leisure activities, plus a full-day excursion at the weekend.
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.

- Sightseeing tour of Seville.
- Visit to Cathedral and Giralda.
- Visit to Seville Football Club stadium.

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.
