Introduction
Your first day
With more than 24 years experience, the DON QUIJOTE organization has
7 language centers in Spain and Mexico. Students can combine courses
in various DON QUIJOTE schools without interrupting their program of
studies. This gives them the opportunity, while learning Spanish, to get
to know the rich cultural variety offered in different regions of Spain.
Quality and incomparable guarantees of DON QUIJOTE are the base of
its growth and have made it outstanding in Spanish language courses
in Spain and Latin America. A source of pride is that more than half of
the students applying to DON QUIJOTE do so recommended by former
students. Each year over 12,000 students from more than 65 countries
choose to learn Spanish with DON QUIJOTE.
Students need to arrive at the school on Monday at 8 AM for their
level test (if Monday is a holiday you will start on Tuesday, please
revise the holiday dates in the price list).
DON QUIJOTE has its own schools in SPAIN (Barcelona, Granada,
Madrid, Salamanca, Tenerife and Valencia) and MEXICO (Guanajuato).
DON QUIJOTE works closely together with others in SPAIN (Alicante,
Cádiz, Malaga, Marbella, Pamplona and Seville) and in Latin America:
ARGENTINA (Bariloche, Buenos Aires, Córdoba and Mendoza), BOLIVIA
(Sucre), CHILE (Santiago de Chile), COSTA RICA (Coronado, Flamingo
Beach, Monteverde Heredia and Playa Jacó), CUBA (La Habana and
Santiago de Cuba), ECUADOR (Quito), GUATEMALA (Antigua), MÉXICO
(Guanajuato, Oaxaca, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Vallarta), PERÚ
(Cuzco) and the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (Santo Domingo and Sosua).
Moreover, you will receive useful information that might be an
important help during your time with us and all the didactic materials
you need to start your course.
Spanish language lessons take place from MONDAY to FRIDAY in
the mornings/afternoons, lessons of 50 minutes each. There are two
sessions taught by two different teachers plus a cultural class with
another teacher.

Study materials
School rules
THE DON QUIJOTE METHOD is a Spanish Teaching Method organized
into 6 levels: VIVE EL ESPAÑOL and CD VIVE EL ESPAÑOL (Authors:
DON QUIJOTE’s director of studies, Caridad Santana Sánchez, and
DON QUIJOTE professors:), taking into account the requirements
designed by the European Framework of Reference and the Curricula
established by the Instituto Cervantes.
At DON QUIJOTE, we have some common sense rules that must be
respected by everybody. These are:
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
provides a standard basis for the design of language programs,
curricular advice, exams and manuals throughout the whole of
Europe. It describes in detail the
process by which a student gains
the ability to communicate in a
foreign language, the knowledge
and skills necessary to be able to
communicate autonomously, as
well as the cultural environment
where the speech act takes
place.

Do not smoke inside the school or office.
Do not eat inside the classrooms.
Disconnect your cellular phones during classes.
Keep silence at the computer’s area.
Be punctual.
Sign up before using the Internet service.
For course extensions, let us know no later than the Thursday
before your course finishes.
If you want to join any of our activities, sign up on the
corresponding list.
When there are two public holidays in the same week, we will
make up one of them.
Do not leave objects of personal value in the classrooms or
around the school. DON QUIJOTE will not be held responsible
for any lost, stolen or disappeared effects.
DON QUIJOTE reserves the right to refuse admission.
The Framework of Reference
additionally provides minute
details regarding the skills
inherent in each level of
linguistic achievement, allowing us to accurately check on the
student’s progress throughout the duration of their course. By
following the Common European Framework of Reference - and thus
abiding by a uniform basis for the planning of objectives, contents
and methodology - our language programs, certificates, levels etc.
are compatible with the international standard.
You may therefore be certain that DON QUIJOTE’s Spanish
programs remain consistent with European guidelines and facilitate
straightforward cooperation with our international partners.

Accommodation
Students who need more days before or after will be changed 45
euros per day (host family, student residence) or 55 euros per day.
DON QUIJOTE cannot guarantee availability for extra days. Please
contact our central office regarding key pick-up if staying in a shared
flat or residence.
LIVING WITH A HOST FAMILY
The host families welcome the students and will treat them like
another family member so as to make them feel at home, but at
the same time you should not forget that every country is different
with different customs and therefore we must, with the intention of
integrating ourselves, accept and respect the new customs in order to
enjoy our stay as much as possible.

RESIDENTIAL STAY
You should respect the timetable that the families have set for
meals.
Try to keep the host family informed when you plan to
travel or go on an excursion (in that case the family
can
prepare some food for your trip). You should also let
Ti
them know in advance if you do not plan to have
p
a meal at home on a specific day.
s
Please inform DON QUIJOTE if you have a
special diet so that we can tell it to the host
family beforehand.
You should always ask for permission before using
the telephone.
Ask the family when would be a good time to receive y o u r
phone calls.
You should ask for permission to bring home friends.
Try to help at home as much as possible.
You have to keep your room tidy, be careful with the things you
borrow and leave them in the way you found them.
Switch off the lights when you leave a room.

If you have booked half board, it includes two meals: breakfast and
dinner. If you have booked full board it includes three meals: breakfast,
lunch and dinner. It is included in the price of the accommodation to
wash your clothes once a week. If you would like to iron your clothes,
ask the family for an iron. In any case, if you should find yourself in a
very difficult situation you can ask to be changed at the school. Try to
take any possible measures you can to avoid this. Here’s some advice

www.donquijote.org
A good idea if you would like to choose a more independent way
of living is to stay in an apartment. It is also a perfect way to make
friends of many different nationalities. It is recommendable to reach
an agreement with your flat mates concerning the meals, if you would
like to cook meals together or independently. In order to make your
stay in the apartment as pleasant as possible there are some rules
that you should respect. You can find them on a notice
board in the entrance hall.
T
s
•
Don’t expect the stay with the family and at the school to be
perfect; you might experience difficult situations. It’s important
to try to overcome difficulties without becoming overwhelmed
and always relying on communication.
Always remember that everyone (you, your family, don Quijote,
the agency that represents you in your country and your own
family) is working in order to make your stay as pleasant as
possible. Therefore you need to overcome problems little by
little and always stay in contact with your support network.
At times you may feel down, disappointed, scared; in these cases
it is very important that you calmly look for a solution. When a
problem surfaces make sure to thoroughly analyze from where
the problem originates and try to resolve it within this area.
As a last resort and only in case of serious problems a change of
family will be made.

SAFETY
Here in Spain, like in other countries, you might encounter safety
problems. We recommend that you take precaution and would like
give you some advice that may be very useful:
•
•
•
•
•
Do not leave your luggage unattended at the airport, railway
station or bus station.
Do not leave your bag unattended in bars, restaurants or in
other public places and be careful in the streets, especially if
you are wearing a backpack.
Keep your documents, credit cards or money in a safe place. If
possible leave them at the apartment or residence.
In case of theft, inform the police, the host family and don
Quijote immediately.
Do not leave objects of personal value in the classrooms or
around the school. don Quijote will not be held responsible for
any lost, stolen or disappeared effects.
with more than 4 digits. Generally, many public places (restaurants,
shops) accept all major credit cards.
Check the current value of the European euro: finance.yahoo.com/
currency
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
•
•
•
TELEPHONE
•
ELECTRICITY
Spain uses 220 Volts. Additionally, wall sockets and plugs may differ
from your home country. For this reason we recommend that you
bring an adaptor from your country.
SPANISH CURRENCY AND
CREDIT CARDS
The Spanish currency is the European
Euro. Foreign currency can always be
exchanged for euros approximately at
a bank or money exchange. Traveller’s
Cheques can be changed at any bank.
Spain has a lot of Automatic Teller
Machines (ATM) that generally accept
major credit cards such as MasterCard,
Visa, Eurocard or ‘cash cards’ from banks
abroad. In Europe, ATM’s do not often
accept Personal Identification Numbers
www.donquijote.org
A lot of people in Spain use the public transport system; being in
most cases the most convenient, fast and cheap way to travel.
If you would like to travel by train and need information about
the timetable and destinations you can call for information at
902 24 02 02 or also find it on the web: www.renfe.es
For information about bus trips, you should check the local bus
station’s web site.

When you arrive on the first day of classes, you’ll receive a
welcome pack with useful information about the city, school,
activities, conversational exchanges and more. Also included is
the don Quijote phone card, an international calling card with
great rates that you can activate and recharge at the reception
desk, starting at 5 euros approximately. Use this calling card
from any phone inside or outside Spain and save up to 50
percent, benefiting from the best rates with no extra charges!
You can make your phone calls from the public phones with
coins or phone cards (5 or 10 euros approximately), that you can
buy in the ESTANCOS (small shops where they sell tobacco).
Some of the public phones also accept credit cards. You can find
them in the streets, in many restaurants, bars and cafés (where
it might be more expensive to make calls).
To enter the international phone net you have to dial:
00 + country code + area code + desired number
It is important to know that the prices for phone calls are
cheaper in the afternoon and in the evening.
MAIL SERVICES
When you need to mail letters or postcards, use the yellow mailboxes
on the streets. For urgent letters you can use the red mailboxes or
take them to one of the post offices. (There is usually one in every
neighborhood).

Service is usually included in the bill. But it is customary to leave a
tip between 5% and 10% of the total price. Remember that it is not
mandatory to tip, but is recommendable when there is an established
custom of doing so.
following we will give you a rundown of how the Spanish are used
to doing things:
•
One of the first things that might surprise you when you
arrive in Spain could be meal times. They usually eat breakfast
between 7:30 AM and 9:30 AM. It is not a very big breakfast and
usually consists of milk, coffee or juice and toast or croissants.
Around 11:00 AM they can have another coffee, or a juice with
something sweet or a salty bite to eat.
Another thing that might be different from other cultures is
•
how the Spanish approach and treat people while talking. They
might surprise you with more excessive body language, patting
you on the back or gesticulating a lot. This is just a part of
being civil and how they show kindness and not necessarily a
demonstration of real friendship.
Another thing you will notice is that the Spanish have a tendency
•
to speak very loudly in public places like restaurants, bars, etc.
This custom is a part of the Latin character that pervades the
personality of the Spanish.
•
In addition to this there will probably be many small things
that will surprise you. Try to learn how things work and take
advantage of the opportunity you are presented with living in a
new country in order to acquire a greater knowledge, not only
of the language, but also of the different culture and traditions
of other people.
SOCIAL LIFE
Feedback
You can buy stamps in the tobacco shops, kiosks or at the post office.
The prices are the same for postcards and letters as long as you don’t
exceed the limits for weight and size.
The post office also offers you the following services:
Telegrams.
•
•
Postal Express.
•
Banking Services.
•
Telex.
COMMERCIAL HOURS
•
•
Most shops are open daily from 9:00-10:00 AM to 2:00-2:30
PM and from 5pm until 8:00-8:30 PM. Some establishments
like EL CORTE INGLÉS, are open from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM.
Opening hours may differ slightly from winter to summer. On
Sundays stores are usually closed.
Embassies, ministries and official organizations are usually only
open in the morning until 2:00 PM.
TIPPING
The social life in Spain is very active. People go out for dinner with
friends or go to the movies or the theater, especially on Fridays and
Saturdays. There is a huge variety of restaurants, cinemas, theater,
exhibitions, concerts and many other possibilities for a nice night
out. You can find information about where to go and when in the city
guides or in the newspapers. If you need help don’t hesitate to ask at
the don Quijote information desk.

are probably different from
those in your country. As

THE CITY
Barcelona, a northeastern city of Spain, belongs to the Autonomous
Community of Cataluña. The city is famous for its architecture,
not only modernist (la Pedrera, la Sagrada Familia and la casa de
les Punxes), but also its gothic feel, like the cathedral or the gothic
neighborhood. Barcelona was the hast of the 1992 Olympic Games
which gave the city an urban lift. Older neighborhoods such as the
Ravel and Poble Nou have been remodeled, becoming cultural centers
with the creation of the MACBA (Barcelona´s Contemporary Art
Museum) standing proud in the Ravel. Promenades have been placed
along the sea front and an industrial estate for technology and
business has also been constructed. From May until September 2004,
a wide variety of cultural activities were available at the Forum.

Generalitat) or the Cercanías Renfe (train). During the night you can
catch the Nit Bus. The same ticket can be used to take any of these
methods of transport (except the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat). The
most recommendable one is the T-10 (10 trips, transferable between
users) and the T-50 (50 trips to make within 30 days). You can transfer
from a bus to a metro (or vice versa) within an hour and a quarter
of an hour with the same ticket. The Taxi system is widely spread
around all the city. The taxi charges you according to the taximeter.
It has to be taken into account that they might charge extra money
for carrying luggage, animals or to go to the airport. One of the most
recommendable forms of transportation is the bicycle. Along all the
city you can find many routes which cross Barcelona and some of
them lead you to the beach. It is the most ecological and healthy
option.
The climate in Barcelona is pleasant for most of the year. However,
one can enjoy it most from the middle of April until the end of July. In
August it can get quite hot, reaching almost 32°C (90°F). The climate
in October and November is agreeable though temperatures can drop
slightly, falling from 21 to 15°C (70 to 60°F) approximately. The sun
does not shine everyday, so prepare yourself for cloudy, rainy days. It
is colder in winter with temperatures averaging 12°C (54°F).

THE CITY
PICK-UP SERVICE (ARRANGED IN ADVANCE)
At the foot of Sierra Nevada lies Granada, a city where an impressive
Andalusian legacy meets architectural gems from the Renaissance
and the most modern facilities typical of the 21st century. Because
it was the last city reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492,
Granada has an unmistakable Arab flavor. Granada is also a university
town; almost a quarter of its 250,000 inhabitants study or teach in
the very illustrious and old university, founded by the most European
of Spanish monarchs, Emperor Charles I of Spain and V of Germany.
•
THE WEATHER
The continental climate is demonstrated by the average temperatures,
the annual average being 14.8°C (50°F) 6°C (42,8°F) in January and
over 25°C (77°F) in August. Long summers and winters contrast with
the short Autumn and Spring. Shortage of rainfall (474 liters per
year), which mainly falls between the months of October-May and is
practically non-existent during Summer.
SHOPPING
Ceramics, silver and inlaid woodwork are just some of the most
famous craft products from Granada. The streets of the Alcaicería
and Zacatín are a perfect place to go if you want to buy typical
gifts and souvenirs. The streets Mesones, Alhóndiga, Puentezuelas or
Recogidas in the center of the city have the largest selection of shops
of all kinds. To buy reasonably priced or second-hand shoes, bags
or clothes, the best thing to do is go down to the Almanjayar street
market on a Sunday morning.

the Castilla - León autonomous region and settled on the banks of
the Tormes River, at 800 m above sea level and with a surface of
38,6km2. It has a population of 165,000 inhabitants. Salamanca is
one of the most famous university towns in Spain with more than
40,000 students studying in the town each year. The University
of Salamanca dates back to 1218, which makes it the third oldest
university in Europe. Apart from the university, Salamanca is known
for its many monuments and special architecture. In the center of the
town all buildings are constructed with golden sandstone (the special
Villamayor stone), which gives the visitor the impression of being in
another time period. Today, Salamanca is a lively mixture between a
modern city, a university town and a little village, which offers the
many visitors advantages of each (a good infrastructure combined
with a young and warm welcoming atmosphere). Salamanca was
named as European Capital of Culture in 2002 and is also a UNESCO
World Heritage City. The town is a very popular tourist destination
and it offers its visitors plenty of interesting things to see and to do.

winters. The average daytime temperature is 20°C (68°F) and during

THE CITY
FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE CITY CENTRE
Puerto de la Cruz is the second largest tourist city on the island with
accommodation for around 30,000 tourists. In contrast with the
modern resorts of the south, El Puerto has had a great tradition as
a place of relaxation since the end of the last century when the spa,
which today is the Hotel Casino Tauro, was built. The lushness of the
gardens and the agreeable atmosphere are very special features of
this city, which has lively places to stroll around. Puerto de la Cruz has
small beaches of volcanic sand, the best ones being Playa Jardin and
Martianez, on the outskirts of the city.
There are two airports in Tenerife: Tenerife Norte (Los Rodeos) and
Tenerife Sur (Reina Sofia).
From Tenerife Norte – Los Rodeos:
•
By bus: Line 102: Santa Cruz – Aeropuerto Norte – Puerto de la
Cruz. This bus comes from Santa Cruz every 30 minutes. www.
titsa.com (timetable, etc)
•
By taxi: Price: around 30 euros approximately (the price can
vary depending on your luggage).
THE WEATHER
Tenerife is called the “Island of eternal Spring” because of its
equilibrated climate and abundant vegetation in the North. Spring
temperatures dominate throughout the year. The average lies between
20-22°C. During the cooler days the thermometer doesn’t fall under
15°C and rarely gets higher than 30°C on the hotter days.
SHOPPING
Tenerife, as well as the other Canary Islands, is partly tax free area. So
the prices for tobacco, spirits and perfumes are cheaper there than
on the average in EU countries. Travellers returning from the Canary
Islands are treated at the customs like travellers from outside the
European Union.
ARRIVAL
Please inform us, at least 1 week before your course starts of your
exact arrival time so we can inform you where to pick up your keys
or inform your host family what time they can wait for you.

THE CITY
TRANSPORT
Few cities are, like Valencia, able to combine so harmoniously remains
from remote periods, as far back as 138 B.C., with the most modern,
avant-garde buildings to be erected in the new millennium. Valencia is
a place for international and avant-garde design and one of the most
attractive cities in Europe when it comes to fairs and conventions.
Thanks to its location, Valencia has been the Spanish gateway to the
Mediterranean, with the special charm that seaport cities have. The
fine sand and crystal waters, the vastness of the open sea, and the
proximity of the coastal mountain range lend the Valencian coast a
unique appeal.
The Municipal Transport Company (EMT) manages Valencia’s citybus network (57 routes). There are seven night-bus lines, which are
called buhús. They all begin their routes at Plaza del Ayuntamiento,
connecting the city center to all the outlying districts. Single tickets
can be purchased in the bus itself, and they cost 1,10 euro approx..
Other possibilities include purchasing a ten-trip pass called Bonobús
for 5,20 euro approx.; a B-10 pass for 6,50 euro approx., good for 10
trips on both the city buses, and the underground (Metro). Valencia’s
underground (Metro) covers the metropolitan area, providing service
to 34 municipalities in the vicinity. Fares for single and round trip
tickets, as well as ten-trip Bonometro passes, vary according to the
zones they cover. A single Zone-A ticket costs 1,25 euro approx.. All
tickets and passes can also be used on city buses. The minimum taxi
fare is 1,25 euro approx.. For your convenience and information,
there is a posted sign in the interior of every vehicle detailing all
fares and supplement.
THE WEATHER
Valencia has one of the most favorable climates in Europe. It’s a
mild kind of weather, typically Mediterranean, with an average
temperature of more than 17°C (62°F). The summer is warm and the
winter is mild. During the winter months, the temperature is not less
than 10°C (50°F). Rain is infrequent and extremely rare in summer,
and it rains most often in autumn and at the end of the winter.
SHOPPING
The streets of Valencia are filled with shop windows exhibiting
everything from hand made arts and crafts (Ciutat Vella) to the latest
fashion designs (around Colón). Fans, lace work, Manises ceramics
and clothes are just some of the things you can buy in Valencia.
ARRIVAL
If you are staying in a host family, please inform us, at least 1 week
before your course starts of your exact arrival time so we can inform

THE CITYY
Alicante’s exceptional location between the mountains and the Costa
Blanca provides the city with a special kind of enrapturing beauty. The
city, wherever one roams, is pervaded by the scent of the sea, playing
its deeply-felt role as a seaport, as it has always done. As Gabriel Miró
said, “my city is pierced through and through by the Mediterranean”.
The historic quarter, at the foot of the Castle of Santa Barbara, a silent
witness to the numerous civilizations that have settled here, conceals
an interesting religious and civil architectural legacy, including the
emblematic Explanada de España (Spain boulevard), a traditional
recreational area for the local residents. Alicante is also a land of deeplyrooted traditions, such as the Moors and Christians festivities and the
Night of San Juan. When it comes to Alicante’s delicious cuisine, rice
takes center stage, cooked in a million different ways.
•

SHOPPING
The traditional shopping part of the town is located around Avda. Alfonso
el Sabio and Gerona street, but the area of Maisonnave and its surrounding
streets, although newer, is an equally lively shopping area. There is also
a multipurpose market that takes place in the Paseo del Doctor Gadea
in winter and along the Explanada in the summer, where you can buy
anything from casual clothes to pottery, jewelry and decorative items. If
you have a discerning palate, we recommend a walk around the Central
Market.

THE CITYY
ARRIVAL
Marbella, situated in the south of Spain, belongs to the autonomous
community of Andalucía and is at the heart of the Costa del Sol. It has a
surface area of 114,30Km2 and a registered population of 90,000. Marbella,
the coast’s cosmopolitan city, holds the most extensive recreational port in
the Mediterranean, Puerto Banús, where the most famous and legendary
yachts have been anchored. The historical center has a Moorish and
Andalusian flavour, with the scent of orange blossoms. The architecture
of the city maintains an Arab-Mediterranean style. Marbella has changed
with the times into a magnificent city which offers its visitors a typical
Andalusian flavour, brilliant whitewashed houses, flower filled squares;
and all of these on the warm and blue Mediterranean sea. Because of
its privileged micro-climate, its unmatched hotel and communications
infrastructure, its sports facilities and of course, its hospitality, Marbella
is the perfect destination.
Please inform us, at least 1 week before your course starts of your exact
arrival time so we can inform you where to pick up your keys or inform
your host family what time they can wait for you.
PICK-UP SERVICE (ARRANGED IN ADVANCE)

From Malaga airport, bus or train stations to accommodation in
Marbella: 95 euros approximately.

24 hours at this number: +34 659 918 312. Otherwise you will loose your
right to a refund of the cost of that service.
THE WEATHER
Because of its geographical location and the chain of mountains
which surround it, Marbella enjoys a special micro climate, with mild
temperatures all year avoiding harsh winters and stifling summers; the
average annual temperature is 19°C (66°F), with 320 days of sun and
less than 50 days of rain. These conditions favor a wide variety of plants
and flora all year round, which is why it is sometimes called “The Garden
City”.
SHOPPING
The school is situated on one of the most central streets in Marbella,
Ricardo Soriano. Among other things, this street is known because it
holds many of Marbella’s most prestigious shops. Marbella is famous for
its luxurious establishments, where you can find the best designer brands
in the world. You can also buy anything you need at the La Cañada Centre
or El Corte Inglés in Puerto Banús.

THE CITYY
TRANSPORT
Built on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville is heir to a rich Arab
legacy, and to the condition of being a prosperous trading port with the
Americas. Seville preserves and pampers its world famous monumental
architecture. At the same time it proudly and brilliantly treasures
mysterious secrets that romantic authors attempted to convey in mythical
works such as Carmen, The Barber of Seville or Don Juan, amongst many
others. Every street and square that makes up the historic quarter of the
Andalusian capital bursts with joy and bustle. This area has an interesting
collection of historic buildings, many of which have been declared World
Heritage Sites, and also contains colorful districts with great popular
flavor, such as Triana and La Macarena. Another good excuse to come
to the Sevillian capital are the festivals. The celebrations of Easter Week
and Feria de Abril (the April Fair), which have been declared of National
Tourist Interest and reflect the devotion and folklore of the people of
Seville, always open and friendly to visitors.
The Empresa Municipal de Transportes (TUSSAM) manages Sevilla’s citybus network. Single tickets can be purchased in the bus itself, and they
cost 1 euro approx.. Other possibilities include purchasing a ten-trip pass
called Bonobús (5 euros approximately). General information: 900 710
171. www.tussam.es
THE WEATHER
Seville has a Mediterranean climate, with average temperatures of 26°C
(79°F) in the summer and 12°C (53,6°F) in the winter, experiencing mild
winds during spring and summer. Winters are also mild. It rains only
slightly during the autumn (average annual rainfall: 534mm). The highest
temperatures are experienced during the summer. With close to 3000
hours of sunlight annually, Seville’s climate can be considered as almost
perfect in all seasons.
SHOPPING
Craft products such as ceramics, lace, shawls and fans, foodstuffs, fashion
clothes, jewelry, gifts and antiques are just a few of things you will find
in the shops of Seville. Traditional establishments stand side by side new
franchises, shopping centers and the latest fashions, thus giving a wide
range of different shopping possibilities to the visitor to the capital of
Andalusia. Seville has everything for the shopper, from craft works and
souvenirs to sophisticated fashion all sold in its many shops, workshops,
shopping centres and street markets. There are three main shopping
areas: the old center, Triana and Nervión.

THE CITYY
Cadiz, the oldest city in the western world, serves up an eclectic mix
of offerings to both its visitors and 135,000 residents. Great beaches,
sweeping views of the sea and long, palm-lined promenades complement
the town’s lively bars, fantastic museums, bustling commercial activity,
and spectacular Cathedrals typical of any prized European city.
THE WEATHER
Expect a mixture of Mediterranean and Atlantic weather for Cadiz. This
means a mild and moderate climate throughout the year. The sun is
usually out, even on cool days, which translates to 300 days of sunshine a
year. The months of April to September are generally dry and comfortably
warm, with temperature playing around the 25°C to 28°C range. July
and August are the hottest months of the year; temperatures can be
maximum 36°C – 38°C. Winters mean rainy days, never snow. During
winter, the coldest months are December and January, with temperatures
between 6°C – 8°C. At nighttime, wear those jackets! Though it is not
as ice cold, the winds can make you feel quite chilly. More information:
www.wunderground.com
SHOPPING
Cadiz carries a whole gamut of shops and products, from the usual
souvenirs to exquisite handcrafted products, high fashion and run-ofthe-mill “I’ve been to Cadiz” t-shirts. Now, to explore the city and look for
great finds (and great bargains), start at Plaza San Juan de Dios. You can
say all shops lead to this plaza, or vice versa. The streets that connect to
this square is filled with shops where you can spend hours browsing and
buying. Don’t forget to pass by Calle Ancha and Calle Columela, two of
the main shopping streets in Cadiz. Remember siesta time. From 2:30 p.m.
to around 5:30, the small shops may be closed. Bigger stores may remain
open during siesta time. However, we would advise you to use this time
to wander around town or to catch up on some sleep after partying the
previous night away.
TRANSPORT
•
Bus: The bus is certainly the most cost-effective way of getting
around Cadiz, and there are plenty of buses to be had with different
lines plying different routes. If you plan to take a lot of bus ride, it
www.donquijote.org
•
is advisable to buy the Bonobus Pass, which is valid for 10 rides and
can be bought from tobacco stands and news kiosks.
Taxi: The best way to see the town is to make your way through the
old town on foot, as you’ll be able to see more of the city’s treasures
tucked into hidden nooks and crannies. However, if you still want
to take a taxi, particularly outside the Old Town, you can call the
Asociacion Gaditana de Radio Taxis.

Malaga, located on the southern coast of Spain, is home to the second
largest Mediterranean port and enjoys average yearly temperatures of
23°C (73°F). It’s a small city with a population of about 600,000, which
creates a friendly, warm environment to learn Spanish.
•
THE WEATHER
Malaga is blessed with typical Mediterranean weather. Summers are fairly
hot while winters are generally mild and dry. Malaga’s superior location
ensures pleasant weather; the mountainous terrain and the warm
Mediterranean coastline makes for mild weather practically the whole
year round. With around 320 days of sunshine, any time is a perfect time
to go to Malaga. Due to low humidity, be prepared for a comfortable kind
of heat- neither sticky nor sultry but just right. Average temperatures (in
Celsius degrees): Spring 16, Summer 25, Autumn 17, Winter 13
SHOPPING
Between contemporary shopping centers, old-fashioned shops and flea
markets, shop alcoholics will be delighted to explore Malaga’s shopping
scene. While shopping, you will surely be pleased to see that Malaga
charmingly blends the old with the new and there are always plenty of
interesting and unusual shops to explore. When shopping, your first stop
should be at the Calle Larios. Calle Larios is a fascinating blend of the old
and the new. It is lined with modern, high-fashion boutiques standing
side by side with shops that sell unique handicraft and souvenirs, as well
as shops that have been in Malaga for several generations.
TRANSPORT
•
Bus: Malaga’s public bus network is serviced by the Empresa
Malagueña de Transportes (EMT). EMT buses are one great way to
move around Malaga, especially if you are not yet familiar with the
layout of the city and its network of narrow streets. One journey
costs around 1euro, regardless of the duration of the ride. If you
plan on using the bus more than once or twice, consider purchasing
a bus card from one of the many booths scattered throughout the
city. For 6 euros approximately, you can get a bus card that is good
for 10 trips. If you’re staying in Malaga for an extended period of
time, it may be worth your while to get the one-month bus pass,
which gives you a month’s worth of unlimited bus trips for 30 euros
www.donquijote.org
approximately. For later-night parties, a night bus service, which
runs once an hour, is also available. For more information on bus
routes and timetables, you may go to the EMT web page (www.
emtsam.es).
Taxi: Taxis are a popular means of transport in Malaga. Taxis are
also monitored by the authorities to help make sure that these
are safe, especially for tourists. You will discover that these white
vehicles are usually found everywhere. However, it may be a bit
difficult to get one during the rush hour, especially when people are
scrambling to get out of the summer sun! A taxi ride costs no more
than 5 euros approximately for short trips around the city, while the
taxi fare from the airport to Malaga’s city center typically ranges
from 12 euros approximately to 15 euros approximately.

THE CITYY
Pamplona, or “Iruña” in the Basque language, is the capital of the
autonomous Spanish region of Navarra and has approximately 196,000
inhabitants Pamplona is so much more than “San Fermines” and the
Running of the Bulls. The center of Pamplona is quite small; in an hour
you can peruse the bulk of the city either on foot or via the efficient
public bus system. The city’s green zones are impressive; in fact, about
20% of the urban area is comprised of parks and pedestrian areas Get to
know the true Pamplona: a tranquil, safe city with a high quality of life,
phenomenal cuisine and a lively night scene, perfect for enjoying the
many charms of northern Spain.
THE WEATHER
While Pamplona enjoys rather mild temperatures moderated by its
proximity to the Cantabrian coastline, it also has a climate marked heavily
by contrasts and seasonal changes. The hottest month is August, with an
average maximum temperature of roughly 27°C, while the coolest month
is generally January with an average low temperature of 1°C. Days in
Pamplona are generally breezy and cloudy, and the city gets enough rain
to keep the surrounding landscapes lush and green- about 130 days each
year!
SHOPPING
In Pamplona there are enough stores, shops and boutiques to spend an
hour, an afternoon, a day or a whole weekend shopping, just you and your
trusty credit card. Whether your style involves tearing through fashion
stores at record-breaking speeds or taking your time to peruse quaint
craft shops, this dynamic city is ideal for all shoppers. If you’re after
a new outfit to debut, the Avenida Carlos III is essentially Pamplona’s
version of New York City’s Fifth Avenue. Flanking the Avenida Carlos III
and its surrounding streets - the fashion hub of Pamplona - you’ll find
all sorts of Spanish, European and international retail chains of all price
ranges. The Old Quarter is the most picturesque shopping area.
TRANSPORT
•
Bus: Pamplona’s city bus network, also known around town as
Villavesas, consists of 21 daytime bus lines throughout the city.
There are also another 9 night-time routes; don’t, however, always

Mexico
SAFETY
Violent crime against visitors is VERY RARE in Mexico. Petty crime (e.g.
pick pocketing, bag grabbing) can be an issue in some areas. Common
sense and being alert to your surroundings will minimize any risks.
Mexico’s main colonial cities, beach towns and resorts are very safe places
to visit. Crime is low, there is a real community spirit in them, and very
violent crimes are rare even among locals. Dress modestly, act naturally,
be yourself. Most journeys through Mexico are trouble-free. (Because of
its size and complexity, Mexico City is one of the few locations in Mexico
where travelers need to concern themselves with crime. There have been
some high profile cases of robberies, and hold-ups in recent years, but
taking a few precautions will minimize any risks to you during your travel
in or through Mexico City.)
ELECTRICITY
Mexico’s electricity system is the same as that of the USA: 120 V; 60 Hz.
You may need a socket adaptor. Most plugs in Mexico are the same as in
the US; two flat prongs.
MEXICAN CURRENCY AND CREDIT CARDS
Mexico’s currency is the Mexican Peso. There are one hundred Mexican
cents (centavos) to every peso. The symbol for the Mexican Peso is $.
To distinguish this from the US Dollar, you
sometimes see it presented as MX$ or the
value with the letters “MN” after it, e.g.
$100 MN. The MN stands for Moneda
Nacional. National Cash Machines (ATMs)
are now widespread in Mexico. They are
almost always open, very reliable and
will dish out Mexican pesos to anyone
with a card connected to one of the
global networks, like VISA, MasterCard,
American Express, etc. ATMs are by far
the quickest and most efficient way to
get access to local currency in Mexico.
www.donquijote.org
Most establishments in Mexico now have the “swipe” machines like the
ones used in stores in the US and Europe. Check the current value of the
Mexican Peso: finance.yahoo.com/currency
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Mexico offers visitors, vacationers and residents an extensive network of
transport systems, both public and private, which make getting around
Mexico efficient and affordable.
Domestic flights in Mexico: With nearly two million square kilometers
•
of land-space, Mexico covers a big territory and sometimes flying is
the best and most effective way to get around.
•
Traveling by Bus in Mexico: Mexico offers travelers three classes
of service on the most popular routes and at least two classes of
service on most routes. The “Executive” class buses are modern,
comfortable buses configured with just 24 seats on board; First
Class buses also offer comfort and efficiency with direct routes to
most principal destinations across Mexico.
Local buses: Local buses exist in every city and town. They are not
•
regulated from a safety point of view. Buses carry as many people as
can be packed in—especially at rush hour. They are very inexpensive
to ride (take change with you)—pay when you board. Not for the
feint hearted, but independent travelers who are street-wise and
know how to get themselves around a place will find the buses OK.
Micro Buses: These green and white mini-buses cost on how far
•
you’ll travel from MX$3.50 to MX$4.50 with extra charge after 10
PM. Like buses, you pay when you get on.
•
Taxi: Getting about by taxi cab is relatively inexpensive in Mexico.
Taxis are either metered, not metered or charged by zones. In the
latter, your price will vary depending on which zone you’re in and
which zone you’re traveling to.
TELEPHONE
Mexico’s telephone network is one of the most well-developed in Latin
America
Public Phones: Telmex (Telefonos de Mexico) - the dominant, near•
monopoly, phone company in Mexico manages most of the pay
phones in Mexico. Coin operated phones exist in small quantities
for local calls and reverse charge calls. Most public phones use the
Student manual | manual del estudiante
•
•
•
•
pre-paid phone cards. You can buy pre-paid Telmex phone cards
in denominations of 30, 50 and 100 pesos. They are widely sold
throughout Mexico including convenience stores, hotels and news
and tobacco kiosks. Look for a sign reading “Tarjetas Ladatel” in the
window, or ask at the counter.
Roaming with Your Home Cell Phone: If you have a “Tri Band” mobile
phone, you can take it with you and use it in Mexico using the
GSM (Global System for Mobile) network in Mexico.Two of Mexico’s
wireless operators use the GSM system—Telcel and Telefonica, which
operates under the Movistar brand in Mexico.
Local Calls - To make local calls, ignore the area code, and dial direct,
just as you would do at home. Note that major cities’ numbers have
EIGHT numbers and other places have SEVEN numbers.
National Calls - Dial 01 which is the prefix for all non-local calls in
Mexico, followed by the area code, followed by telephone number.
International Calls - To access a number outside of Mexico, you
need to prefix the number with 00 (the international access code)
then the country code, and then the national area code (omitting
the first zero if there is one), and then the local number.
Calls to Mexican Mobile Phones in Mexico and from Abroad:
•
For calls to a local cellphone, dial 044 then the 10-digit number of
the mobile phone.
•
For calls to a non-local domestic cellphone dial 045 followed by the
10-digit mobile number.
•
Dialing Cell Phones From a Mexican Cell Phone in Mexico
•
If you are calling a Mexican cell phone from overseas, you should
dial your country’s international access code, followed by Mexico’s
country code (52), then add a “1”, then the mobile phone’s area
code and its number. The full charge of the call will be made to
the caller.
MAIL SERVICES
You’ll find a post office (Oficina de Correos) in almost every town and in
every city in Mexico. Stamps can be bought from post offices or stamp
machines, located outside the post offices, at bus stations, airports and
some commercial establishments (but not many). Airmail letters will have
to be weighed at the post office and stamps to the postage value bought.
79
For urgent items and packages of high value, it’s probably best to use
a courier. If you’re sending a package internationally, take the package
OPEN to the post office, they may want to inspect it. Seal it up at the
post office. Delivery times will vary; but a letter or postcard from Mexico
will take about a week to get to the US/Canada, between 1 and 2 weeks
to make its way back to Europe or Australia. Mexico’s Postal Service often
gets a “bad press”, but in our experience the service is reliable for letters,
postcards, greetings cards... Items sent from abroad to Mexico City can
arrive within a few short days; if they are being taken out to Mexico’s
provinces, this can add a week or more delay to their delivery time. Items
which are critical or of high value should be sent by courier.
COMMERCIAL HOURS
Shops: Shopping hours start at around 10 or 11 AM, and continue through
to between 8 and 10 PM. open 7 days a week.
Banks: Branches are open from 9 AM to 4 PM in many cities and big
towns, and some even open Saturday mornings.
TIPPING
In Mexico, tipping not only is it customary, it is expected and appreciated
in return for good service. Even fringe services like someone at a taxi rank
opening the door for you should receive a small tip (just 10 pesos will
suffice in these cases).

Guanajuato, located in central Mexico, is a picturesque, tranquil university
city which serves as the capital of the Guanajuato State. The city is protected
by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is less than 30 minutes from the

THE WEATHER
Guanajuato enjoys a mild climate all year-round. Winters are cool but not
freezing and summers are hot but not simmering. While the sun is nice
and warm, the city’s relatively high altitude balances things out and cools
the temperature down. Overall, it’s a pretty dry climate; however, you can
generally expect a bit more rain - in the form of a passing shower or afternoon
thunderstorm - between the months of July and September.

THE CITY
TY
The city of Oaxaca has an altitude of 1550 meters (5080 feet) above sea,
located in the central valley of the state. Surrounded by the states of Puebla,
Veracruz and Chiapas and the Pacific Ocean to the southwest. With its ethnic,
cultural and historic richness, Oaxaca is an ideal place to experience the
beauty of Mexico and its people. Due to Oaxaca’s appreciation for ancestral
traditions and its colonial architecture, UNESCO has named the city a
patrimony of humanity. Oaxaca is known for its creative, talented artists and
many different types of artisans. The artists use everything from clay and
fabrics to leather, iron and jewelry, making Oaxaca one of the main producers
of these goods.
•
sometimes its pace is too parsimonious; therefore, they are not
recommendable when travellers are trying to beat their clock.
Taxi: a faster and more direct alternative to move from one place to
another. Make sure you check the taxi driver’s identification before
boarding the vehicle.
ARRIVAL
Please inform us, at least 1 week before your course starts of your exact
arrival time so we can inform your host family what time they can wait for
you.
PICK-UP SERVICE
THE WEATHER
Oaxaca has an average of 311 days if sunshine, though the summer months
are considered rainy season. The warmest months are April and May (30°C 35°C / 88°F - 95°F) The temperature during the summer months is between
28°C and 33°C (85°F and 92°F), but you can expect an afternoon shower
during those months to cool things off a little in the evening. Cold fronts
usually come through during November and early December. The days will
continue to be warm, but the evenings are generally quite cold until March.
The temperature will range between 15°C and 25°C (55°F to 80°F) during the
days and 10°C and 20°C (45°F to 65°F) during the nights.
SHOPPING
Oaxaca’s markets are exciting places to explore where the true essence of
the city comes in to its own - the sights, smells and sounds as the indigenous
populations go about their daily business makes for a truly rich cultural
experience. Artisans can be seen working on their crafts, adding the final
touches of col our to rugs, pots and paintings as cooks prepare mouth
watering dishes to serve up to hungry locals. Oaxaca Markets are the best
places to catch a bit of Oaxaqueñan life in its purest form as well as for
purchasing arts and crafts and sampling a bit of traditional cuisine.
TRANSPORT
•
Bus: Oaxaca has an adequate service of public transportation, which
is based or rather sustained by the bus lines (camiones) that cover the
most important streets and avenues of the city. These units follow
a predetermined route, and their cost is pretty economic; although,

•
Pick-up service at Oaxaca airport is free when staying with a host
family.
HOW TO REACH THE SCHOOL
•
•
Plane: Some companies offer a direct flight to Oaxaca, however, all
other flights are directed through Mexico city. You can organize a flight
into Oaxaca or fly into Mexico city and take a bus to Oaxaca. The flight
from Mexico city is only 40 minutes; so flying is obviously a much faster
way to arrive, though the bus is considerably more economical.
Bus: First class bus from Mexico city to Oaxaca costs around $50 and
it is 6 hours. For more information: www.adogl.com.mx; www.uno.com.
mx; www.ticketbus.com.mx. If you are arriving by bus, you will need to

THE CITY
TY
AM until 10:00 p.m. There is usually no fixed schedule of departure, as
a colectivo usually waits to be filled before it leaves the “terminal.” The
maximum capacity of a colectivo is usually 10 passengers. Payment is
made when you exit the colectivo.
Motorcycles and bicycles: You can rent motorcycles in some rental
shops in Playa del Carmen.
Playa del Carmen is located in the center of Mexico’s Riviera Maya in the
state of Quintana Roo. In the heart of the Yucatan Peninsula, this small
city is approximately 35 minutes from Cancun’s international airport and
40 minutes from Tulum. Playa del Carmen attracts people from all over the
world because of its relaxed, tropical atmosphere and its unmatched beautiful
beaches. “Playa”, is a great place to enjoy the cultural and historic richness of
Mexico and the Mayan people.
•
THE WEATHER
Please inform us, at least 1 week before your course starts of your exact
arrival time so we can inform your host family what time they can wait for
you.
The weather in Playa del Carmen varies considerably throughout the seasons,
but mostly there is sunshine, heat and humidity. Tropical storm season
officially begins in June and lasts through the middle of November, but
hurricanes are extremely and if so, it would not be until late September or
October. The warmest months are May through September with 31°C (87°F).
Late March and April begins to be warmer with 28°C (lower 80’s). The cooler
months are late November to early March, and the temperature will range
between 20°C to 27°C (or 68°F to 81°F).
SHOPPING
Being the prime tourist spot that it is, you can be sure that all the quality
products in Mexico and even the rest of the world will find its way here. Stroll
along La Quinta and spend hours window shopping and going on a buying
spree. A word of warning, though, keep a firm hold of your wallet. You may
bust your budget before the day is out.
TRANSPORT
•
•
•
Walking: Playa del Carmen is a relatively small city, with almost
everything within walking distance.
Taxis: Playa del Carmen taxis are easy to find. There are stations on
5th avenue, on Avenida Juarez and on the corner of 5th Avenue and
Constituyente. Authorized taxi fares within Playa del Carmen are based
on a zoning strategy ($12 - $25).
Colectivos: these white vans are mini-bus lines that service the route
of the Riviera Maya - Cancun to Tulum. These are highly economical
and also convenient. You can take these mini-vans from their terminals
(Avenida 20, between Calle 12 and 14 and one on Avenida Juarez corner
5th Avenue) every 15 to 30 minutes during the day starting from 5:00

student may have to wait up to 2 hours to get this service. The cost of

ARRIVAL
On the Pacific coast, Puerto Vallarta is in the western part of the state of
Jalisco in central Mexico. The magical combination of mountains, tropics and
beaches makes visitors fall in love with Puerto Vallarta at first sight. Aside
from its beauty and amazing flora and fauna, however, this city also allures
tourists with its colonial architecture and traditions unique even in Mexico.
Puerto Vallarta is the perfect blend of tropical waters and rich Mexican
culture.
Please inform us, at least 1 week before your course starts of your exact
arrival time so we can inform your host family what time they can wait for
you.

HOW TO REACH THE SCHOOL
The weather in Puerto Vallarta varies considerably throughout the seasons,
but mostly there is sunshine, heat and humidity. Puerto Vallarta is surrounded
by jungle and mountains, and receives considerable rain. The rainy season is
June to September, rainiest in September. December and January, the peak
tourist season, is nice and sunny. Spring and Autumn produces moderate
temperatures. Temperatures reach 32°C (90°F) during the summer and 2530°C (mid 80°F) during the winter. Night time temperatures range from 1624°C (60’s to the mid 70’s).

Puerto Vallarta’s city streets are brimming with unique shops just waiting to
be browsed. Not to mention the assortment of major shopping centers typical
of any modern city. There’s really no “shopping” district in Puerto Vallarta,
so just enjoy the sights and the sun as you peruse the city streets and walk
along the malecón. Puerto Vallarta’s countless art galleries, feature local and
international artists of all genres that have made the city an internationallyrenowned art mecca. There is also a lively flea market located right by the Río

that the student is certain that the e-mail has been received. If the student is covered under the Silver

you should be aware that prices may change depending on how many weeks you’ll be doing eventually.

4 week prices will be applied.
