Please note the following recommendations and tips:
In Valencia and in general in Spain, you will be entitled to benefit from the health care service if needed. This service is free if you come from any European Community country and you will only need to bring with you your European medical card.
If you do not come from one of the European Community countries, you can still receive medical attention but you will be charged depending on the service.
If you are not from one of the European Community countries, we recommend that you travel with a private medical insurance.
Arrival and accommodation
If you have booked accommodation through Intereuropa, when you get to Valencia please go directly to the accommodation that we have booked as someone will be waiting to welcome you and and give you the keys.
If you arrive later than the time that you told us in advance, please contact the family/owner of the apartment/contact person in order to let them know your new arrival time (perhaps by sms).

The airport of Valencia, Manises Airport is at about 10km from the
city. To get from the airport to the city centre:
Taxi: If you have luggage, the most comfortable mode of transport is a taxi.
It will cost approximately 15/20 Euro. You will find a taxi stand just outside the airport.
Underground: this is highly recommended, as it is the cheapest way to get to Valencia. You will fnd the station at the airport terminal.
The nearest stop to Intereuropa and also the city center is Xativa.
The trip takes about 20 minutes and the approximate price of the ticket is 1.90 Euro.

Angel Guimera). Tickets cost approximately 2.50 Euro.
Valencia has a very good network of public transport such as underground and
buses. If you are going to use them, we reccommend that you buy a “bonometro” or a “bonobus”. Each one of them includes 10 trips.
In this way, you will pay for each trip approximately half the price of a single ticket.
The bonobus costs about 6.80 and you can buy one at any kiosk.

any underground station.

The 2 major supermarket chains in Valencia are called
Mercadona and Consum. You can find one of them in each district of the city.
A few meters from the school, you can find a Mercadona and a Consum but also the Central Market where you can buy some typical food of the region.
Intereuropa is a specialist in the teaching of Spanish to foreigners. Courses are run all-year-round at different levels, from complete beginner to advanced.
Our qualified and experienced language teachers are young, native Spaniards, who all hold degrees in Spanish philology.
The maximum group size is 10 students.
Students who already have some previous knowledge of Spanish will be level-tested to ensure correct placement from the beginning.
We will email you the level test together with the booking confirmation.
The teaching method
The teaching method develops the practice of language in all its four main branches: listening, conversation, reading and writing. Special emphasis is placed on conversational practice from the start, giving students a greater capacity of expression and communication in Spanish.
All of our students receive a certificate on finishing the course. To receive the certificate it is necessary to attend at least 80% of the lessons.
The school uses its own books, which are always up-to-date, meaning that they are easy to use for both students and teachers alike.
In order to combine the study of Spanish with learning more about the Spanish way of life and culture, Intereuropa organises a varied programme of leisure activities for students, which take place during the afternoons and weekends.
Most of these activities are free or inexpensive, and include: day trips, visits to places of cultural interest, dinners, Spanish films, dancing, cookery courses, etc.
In order to help students to practice their language in real contexts, and to enable them to meet people from different cultures, the Intereuropa academy offers an attractive language exchange programme between people of different nationalities. This service is free and you can ask about it when you arrive at the school.
