My daughter had been in Spanish immersion since kindergarten and had finished the highest level Spanish at her high school, but was still not fluent. We looked for an immersion program for the summer, but many were extraordinarily expensive. Her Spanish teacher recommended INESLE and we are so happy he did. From the minute we arrived in Madrid, we felt welcomed. Carlos and Myriam were there to greet us with my daughter’s host father and sister. Her host family took us on a quick tour of their home and Madrid, and we had a lovely dinner in Plaza Mayor. Although I had to leave the next morning, I knew my daughter was in good hands for a month. We regularly received photos and updates from the program so we could track all their many adventures. She came home happy and confident as a fluent Spanish speaker and made wonderful friends for life. We are hopeful that her host sister can come stay with us next year. Thank you, INESLE!
Thank you again for taking such good care of Anika and for the great program. Anika enjoyed very much! She absolutely loved it and we are talking to Javier about having them all visit us in California (you and Myriam are welcome too anytime!). Please let us know more about the internship program for next summer!
"My son attended the 2016 INESLE summer program and had an unforgettable month in Spain. He came back from the program more confident about his grammar and conversational skills, and incredibly well prepared for the upper-level Spanish course at his high school. He really enjoyed immersing in the Spanish culture, living with a family who warmly welcomed him as one of their own.
INESLE, run by career educators, Carlos and Myriam, is a top-notch summer program. I felt reassured from the moment my son signed up until he arrived back home. Detailed explanations about the classes, daily schedules, field trips, host families, travel information, required documents, etc., were all provided and clearly communicated. Carlos and Myriam are thoroughly professional and they both want to make sure every student’s experience is better than expected. Bottom line is that they genuinely care. They are accessible to the students and the parents alike. I’m grateful to them for giving my son an opportunity to grow spiritually and intellectually, and enjoy life as a carefree Madrileño during the summer of 2016!"
Queríamos agradeceros la experiencia que ha tenido Claudia con vosotros. Sinceramente, ha sido un programa perfecto no sólo por los cursos de inglés que por supuesto son importantes para su formación, sino también por el conjunto de actividades tanto
culturales como de ocio que habéis organizado. Sobre todo, destacar el ambiente, la atención, la seriedad y el cariño de toda la organización. Claudia estaba verdaderamente encantada de todo el programa, y hemos sido conscientes, ya que cómo habréis observado, es muy expresiva y comunicativa, de su adaptación y de su disfrute y acabar con la experiencia de compartir el Camino de Santiago, no ha podido ser mejor. Se ha marchado encantada, con una gran experiencia vivida.
Así que, muchísimas gracias por todo vuestro esfuerzo y trabajo…que paséis un muy buen verano y seguiremos en contacto…
María y Fernando Perales
Muchas felicidades por este curso de verano tan maravilloso.
Víctor se lleva una familia nueva de amigos y ha disfrutado muchísimo con todos vosotros.
Deseamos que los chicos americanos tengan un buen viaje de vuelta a casa. ¡¡¡¡ Felicitaciones a todo el equipo que formáis INESLE!!!!! Un fuerte abrazo.
