Accommodation

Acomoddation

1. What lodging options do you offer to arrange for students?
Shared apartments with 3 or 4 rooms (single, double or triple), single apartments for 1 or 2 persons, homestay, hotels and hostels.

Apartments: self-catering.

2. Are most home stays and your other lodging options (if any) within walking distance of the school? If not, how long of a bus or subway ride and what are the costs?
Apartments: Two apartments are directly in front of the school, the apartments furthest away from the school can be reached within 20 or 30 minutes walking or 10 minutes by bus. Families: Some are in the school’s neighbourhood, others a little bit further away. We always intend to search first families who are living nearest to the school. Nevertheless, during summer time (high season) we have to accommodate our students also in families living further away. The families living furthest away of our school can be reached within 20 minutes by bus.

3. Are there other students living with same host family? How many?
This depends on how many rooms the family rents out. Some rent out just one single room, so there is only one student living with the family. However, the majority of the families rent out more rooms, and also work together with other schools, not just with our school. That’s why normally more students are living together in one family.

4. If the student chooses a shared room, does he/she share room with another student or member of the family? Is the shared room option only available for students travelling together?
The student will share room with another student, but not with somebody from the family. The shared room option is also available for students who are travelling alone.

5. How many meals are provided daily in a home stay? Any meals at other accommodations?
Home stay: We offer home stay with half board and full board, but if a student wishes to book home stay just with breakfast or without any meal, this is also possible. Apartments: without meals Hotel: according to the students’ wishes

6. Can entire families stay at the same home stay or other lodging?
In general this is possible, but it depends, of course, on the availability of rooms/season.

7. Do you have any accommodation with private bathroom?
We have the option for a private bathroom in 1 apartment, the “own apartment” and of course also in hotel.

8. Is there an accommodation discount for young children?
If so, at what age does a child have to start paying full price? No, there is no discount for the standard courses. Nevertheless, we offer the Junior Programme, which includes accommodation in family. This way, the accommodation results cheaper.

9. When should the student arrive to and depart from the accommodation, before he/she has to start paying for extra days? What is the price per night for additional nights? Is there any problem arriving a few days earlier or staying a few days longer?

The arrival day is the Sunday before the course starts (after 12:00 p.m.); the departure day is the Saturday after the end of the course (before 12:00 p.m.). If a student arrives earlier or leaves later he/she has to pay for these extra nights, but there is no problem in arriving earlier or later. The price for an additional night depends on the type of accommodation. Shared apartments: 55 EUR/person for single, double and triple room Single apartments: 95 EUR for a one-person apartment; 85 EUR/person in a two-person apartment Family: 60 EUR/person for a single room, 60 EUR/person for a double room

10. Are your accommodation options available to travel companions who are not studying? Is there any extra charge?

Yes, travel companions can also use our accommodation facilities. However, they have to pay a supplement of 90 EUR/week.

11. Is laundry service included? If not, what do students usually do?

In all our apartments there is a washing machine, in families students have the right to use the washing machine once a week.

12. What is a standard equippement of a room in an apartment/homestay?

Usually in each room there is a bed, a wordrobe, a table, a chair, a bedside table, a lamp and a wastepaper basket. Moreover in the living room there usually is a TV. Some of the apartments and homestays have a telephone and Internet access.

2. Best time to study based on cultural events or festivals? Short description of these events?
Semana Santa (Easter): Every year, during the Passion Week in Málaga takes out to the streets a real festival: processional thrones carrying images that are swung all along the entire route, thousands of penitents lighting and giving colour with their candles and robes, processional marches, as well as aromas of incense and flowers filling the air as the processions pass by and thousands of people crowded to see and applaud their favourite “ tronos” (floats, thrones). The Holy Week in Málaga is very different to that celebrated in other Andalusian or Spanish cities, and those who go to Málaga for the first time will be surprised, as the Passion Week there is not lived with meditation and silence, but it is full of happiness, noise, cheer, spontaneous saetas (flamenco verses sung at the processions) and applauses as the images pass by. Málaga’s Summer Fair (15th of August): The summer festivities in the city have their roots in the commemoration of the incorporation of Málaga to the Castillian crown of the Catholic Monarchs. Málaga´s August Fair has come to the present day as a Grand Summer Fair that is open, cosmopolitan and international, all of this reflecting the character of the capital of the leading tourist area in Europe: the City of Málaga as the key center of the Costa del Sol and its metropolitan area. Today the fair is more than ever before, a sign of Málaga´s progress. This finds its expression in the sum of money which is spent by the City Council for the festivities. Every year, people of all around the world are visiting Málaga when the famous fair is taking place, to take part in this spectacle.

3. Important advice (visa, insurance, safety, etc.)?

Visas
Citizens of the EU do not need a visa to enter Spain. A valid passport or identity card is, however, necessary for all visitors. If you are an EU citizen, and you intend to stay longer than three months, you need to apply for a residence permit. You can arrange it at the nearest police station by filling out a form. You need to bring your passport and an enrolment confirmation from the school.

Insurance
Málaga Sí strongly recommends that you take out an extensive international health and travel insurance with a full risk cover. We can arrange it for you as well. If you are an EU student and an EU citizen you have to bring the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to receive first aid assistance in a public hospital. Nevertheless it is crucial that the school receives detailed information about special health conditions that you might present (like allergies, diets etc). Apart from this, the school has contracted civil responsibility insurance for all the students inside the school building, its surroundings and during excursions and activities organized by the school. In addition, our school and its staff have past the legal standards regarding job hazards.

Special safety considerations for our “JUNIORS”:
Our students will enjoy a safe and caring environment during their holidays, as our experienced staff and families provide guidance and supervision at all times. An experienced monitor will take care of all the students´ needs outside the classroom. Our professional team of monitors will accompany the students throughout their stay and be available for all questions the students have. Our host families are extensively prepared and experienced in receiving young students from outside Spain. They are all thoroughly vetted by the school and people of great confidence who enjoy opening their doors to share the local customs and culture with young students. To start the course and to participate in all the activities and excursions, all the students enrolled in this course must bring an authorization as a minor, signed by their parents. In addition, we need to know the exact hour at which the students have to come back home in the evening – a document also confirmed by the parents.

4. Does the school organize afternoon activities? What kind of activities? How often? Is this included in the program cost or is there an additional cost? How much? Are they conducted in the language being taught or in English? Can a student's travel companion participate?

The school organizes a varied program of social activities for students such as excursions to Granada, Cordoba, Seville, and Morocco. In addition, there are welcome parties and guided tours through the city of Málaga. Students may take other courses in addition to their Spanish studies, such as flamenco, dance, guitar, aerobics, golf, or tennis (not included in the price). The Costa del Sol offers something for everyone: There are a lot of amusement parks and zoos, you are able to take balloon trips, do wind and kite surfing, scuba diving, horse riding…
Please note that some activities and sports, even if they are arranged by other organisations, can be booked at the school.

Welcome Parties (included in the course price)

These parties are designed to welcome the new students and to make it easier for them to get into contact with the existing group of students. During this party the students can talk, dance, eat and drink (non-alcoholic beverages) – in short, they enjoy their time and have fun. The party takes place every Wednesday at our school (either inside or outside in the garden).

Flamenco and BBQ/Paella Parties

These parties are celebrated in the evenings. In the first case, a group of dancers will come to the school, and the students will be able to participate in a real flamenco-spectacle. The students can take part in the dancing, they can eat, drink and enjoy the evening with their classmates.
For the BBQ parties, the school prepares meat, sausages, “pinchitos”, “chorizo“, and drinks either in the School’s garden or at the beach. In addition, some evenings, we prepare the typical Spanish Paella together with the student´s. Later, we sit together in the school´s garden and enjoy the dinner.

Cooking Lessons (included in the course price)

In the cooking lessons the students learn how to make a Spanish omelette, pepper’s salad, or other Spanish specialities. Everyone participates in this interactive situation. When the food is done, all of the participants are eating together – which is the perfect atmosphere to introducing new vocabulary to the students and letting them talk with the teachers in a relaxed environment.

“Tapas”-Evening (everyone has to pay for him-/herself)

One of the activities oriented to get to know the Spanish food tradition is the “Tapas” evening. The students visit with our staff typical tapas- bars, and are able to taste various Spanish specialities in a nice environment.

Going out for dinner with our school staff (everyone has to pay for him-/herself)

Apart from the “tapas”-evening, there is another informal dinner with the teachers and the school’s staff, where everyone talks Spanish. This activity is very important for the students´ approach to the Spanish culture and language.

Cultural Visits

The school offers, included in the course price, one cultural visit a week with a guide. The students will visit the Cathedral, Victoria’s Sanctuary, the Santiago church; the museum of fine arts, the Picasso museum, the Archaeology museum, the Town Hall museum, Gibralfaro and the Alcazaba Arabic castles, as well as “La Concepción” – a botanical garden.

Spanish Movie at the School (included in the course price)

Once a week we show a Spanish movie in school. Some movies are oriented to show the past and present situation in Spain, others are good commercial movies in the Spanish version.

The Sports Club “El Candado” (not included in the course price)
