Can you imagine every nook and cranny of every street of every corner of a quaint Spanish town filled with teenagers from around the globe? Well, such a place exists and it’s here!

We are an English immersion course for Spanish students to practice English without having to travel abroad. Since July 2004 we have “taught” English to Spaniards and welcomed thousands of English-speaking teenagers to our little villages, where the official language is no longer Spanish.

During the program they are accompanied by Counsellors who are in charge of managing groups of 8 to 10 children (Spaniards and volunteers who are English native speakers). The program is directed by the Program Director and the Master of Ceremonies, who will be in charge of making sure that the program is following the structure it is supposed to as well as organising activities, and providing support to the Counsellors.

The Summer programs for Kids don’t have English-speaking volunteers, so the counsellors will be the ones in charge of exposing the children to English language through games, sports, theatre and plenty of activities.


  • Supervise daily recreational and social activities for groups of students.
  • Explain activities, play games and instruct workshops: sports, arts and crafts, theatre, music, dance, etc… The participants will rely on you to guide them through their activities and you must have both the charisma to work with a group and the sensitivity to listen to the individual.
  • Make sure the campers speak and hear as much English as possible.
  • Enforce safety rules and regulations, and ensure the safety and well-being of the campers.
  • This demanding role requires constant energy and enthusiasm. You will be a role model, teacher, mediator, comedian and friend. In these residential camps, you’ll be with the children 24 hours a day.
  • Overseeing appropriate behaviour at meal times.
  • Chaperoning on the bus trip from Madrid to the venue and back.
  • Volunteers pick-ups and drop-offs in Madrid.

  • Ages of students: Kids – 7 to 12 years old and Teens – 13 to 18 years old

  • EU-citizens (or legal work permit in Spain)
