Thanks for that. Thinking of Marbella. Not sure why other then first one I hit on website. Salamanca better? Age 15. Worry slightly about too much freedom at that age and the DQ person said to do the residential not home stay as not supervised on home stay. Spotted the e200 offer. Expires Monday!
Salamanca is a paradise on earth (IMO ) probably for uni age students thinking about it. (the student I am sending next week is 17) For a summer camp for younger ones Marbella (or any seaside really) would prob have the advantage because of the sea.
I would second the residential not homestay (I am taking a group to the UK in 10 days time and this is what I always recommend as a first experience/for younger students) because on residential they are literally supervised 24/7.
DQ is better than the average Spanish language school/summer camp because there are far more activities etc. Quite a lot of them are cheap as chips (you can get 2 weeks course + accommodation+ activities for less than a grand probably including your lo-cost flight) but that is reflected in the quality of the activities and supervision.
I am hoping next year to take a group of 11 yr olds.
