Tourism

In addition to the Spanish lessons for tourism a number of visits to hotels and leisure premises will be undertaken.
The student need a C1 or C2 level to participate in this course and the activities are increased with more additional activities.

We recommend the suitable duration of the course is the 2 weeks: 40 theoretical hours, 10 practical hours and 7 visits to touristic centers.

In the 3 weeks courses, the last week is specialized in students´ needs. Restoration, hotel tourism, hotel management are some of the specific module.


It is an interactive course where you will improve your speaking skills in real world situations and that will help you to enhance specific vocabulary so that you are able to communicate in the domain of tourism.


During the course an array of supporting learning materials will be used (our own teaching materials, special publications, audiovisual materials as well as internet).

We must bear in mind that Salamanca is one of the most touristic towns of our country and that there are a huge number of locations to visit. It is therefore a most appropriate town for this course.
