The Becas Paso a paso en Español / Step by step in Spanish Scholarship 2018-2019 programme from the El Camino del Español Institute is based on the cultural immersion of students in the day to day life of Valladolid whilst they learn Spanish on our courses.

These grants are directed towards foreign students of all ages – look at our conditions for students under 18 – from beginners to advanced who want to take part in a 1 or 2 week Spanish course in Valladolid.

Conditions of the Paso a paso en Español / Step by step in Spanish 2018-2019 grant:
The grant covers half board accommodation with a Spanish family or in a university residence. The student can choose which option they prefer

The grant does not include:
•    Spanish course: intensive 20 hours or intensive 25 hours. (See list of course prices).
•    Registration Fee: 70 € to reserve place on the course which includes didactic materials

Other optional services:
•    Full insurance
•    Transfer from  Madrid – Valladolid – Madrid
•    Excursions and guided tours

Important information for students with grants:
- The student can choose a course lasting more than two weeks but the grant will only cover accommodation for the first two weeks. The stay after the second week will be paid for by the student. (See list of accommodation prices).

- The courses start on Mondays, every fortnight, even though we may look at exceptional circumstances where students have to start on different dates, bearing in mind that the educational programme is adapted to fortnight long courses.

- The Step by Step in Spanish grant covers half board accommodation but if a student would prefer full board they only have to pay the difference (30€ per week both with a family or at a university residence). The price of a hotel or apartment is looked at one by one.

- The accommodation is from the Sunday afternoon before the start of the course until the Saturday at midday after the course has finished.

-On the first day of class students will be welcomed by our teaching team who will explain how the El Camino del Español institute works as well as the course programme, information about the city and the activities offered by the institute. They will also carry out a level test to find out which group suits which student and once this has been done, give a guided tour of the most important sights in Valladolid accompanied by our teachers.

- Courses take place from Monday to Friday. The Intensive 20 and the Intensive 25 group classes are from 9.30 to 14.00 with a break from 11.30 to 12.00. The five individual classes which form part of the Intensive 25 can be from 8.30 to 9.30 or from 14.00 to 15.00, as agreed by the student and the teacher. Courses can also take place from 16.30 to 20.00 depending on the number of groups.

- Every scholarship student will receive a diploma at the end of the course.

- El Camino del Español will organise an optional educational guided tour each week alternating between the two World Heritage Cities, Salamanca and Segovia.

- The student has to pay the registration fee (70€) when they reserve their place. The course and other optional services can be paid for on the first day of the course in cash or by credit card.
