The program offers the chance to speak Spanish and becoming part of Spanish family life while in Barcelona. Our families have young children with similar ages, so students strengthen their language skills and make new friends.
Families are carefully selected by the School. Each family has been personally selected by SpainBcn Directors. We know, personally, all our host families. We also try to match as much as possible the preferences of the participants regarding their host family in Barcelona. According to their preferences, participants are acommodated alone with a host family or together in the same host family with 1 or 2 other/s participants of our teen summer programs. All our families take very good care of the students and offer them a warm and kind environment while helping us with the supervision.
Most of the host families have children with similar age to our students. They all are very nice and well educated people who really like to have our students at home.
The sons and daughters of our host families also attend our summer programs activities together with the students they have at home. Our host families live in some of the nicest and best neighboorhoods in Barcelona and many just walking distance from our school.
The host family will provide all bed linens, pillows and a towel.
Breakfast and dinner daily are with the host family.
The students usually have their own bedroom and bathroom or,
in some cases, they share it with the son/s or daughter/s of the host family.
* All participants are picked up in the morning at their host family accommodation to be accompanied to the school wich is also the meeting point in the mornings for the group of players to go to the camp.
* Participants are also accompanied back to the host families in the afternoon after the training or after the cultural activities or the Spanish course (according to their group age and option of program). Most of the studets can go walking to the school as most of them live between 10 to 20 minutes walking distance.
* Older students once they know how to retur to the host family home will go back in groups.
* Younger students are accompanied by the School coordinators during all the program.
Breakfast and dinner Monday through Saturday and the 3 meals on Sunday are with the host family. Lunch from Monday through Thrusday is at SpainBcn School for those participants who are 13 years old and younger. Older students can also have lunch at SpainBcn School if they inform us the day before. SpainBcn lunch: Pic nic with a big sandwich and a drink are prepared and served for all participants of our Summer Programs for the beach days (Fridays) and the excursion days (Saturdays).
The student will be expected to make his/her own bed, help to keep the room tidy, leave the bathroom clean. 1 or 2 laundries per week.
  CURFEW: The program's curfews will be strictly enforced.
Students under 18 are not allowed to be away from their home in Barcelona overnight (after 11,00 pm). Host families or the School can not be responsible for a participant who does not respect the program rules. A student bad behaviour may then result in the school contacting the parents/guardian. They will need to speak with their child and,inmediately, solve the problem. SpainBcn and the host family are not responsible for student who does not follow the program's rules. NOTE: Those parent/s or tutor/s who want to permit their children to go out during the night need to send us a formal permission slip explaining what days students can go out and also exhonerating SpainBcn and the host family of all responsibilities.
NOTE: Some of our host families prefer the students they have at home not to go out at night so, in this case, we can move the student to a different accommodation.
