“Take part in the exciting leisure a




activities Montequinto has to offer�Mare Club


Seville is approximately 3,000 years old. The passage of the various civilizations has left the city a distinct personality, and a large and well-preserved historical centre. Although it has a strong medieval, renaissance and baroque heritage, the city was greatly influenced by Arabic culture. Weather, gastronomy, nightlife, thousands of bars, hospitality and the warm character of its people, museums, and architecture are the main reasons why Seville is one of the most visited cities in Andalusia.



Canadian Language Institute Founded in 2000, CLI is a privately owned and operated school that operates a number of carefully designed and managed language programmes. It has two centres, one in Montequinto, a residential area, and the other in Alcalá de Guadaira, both in Seville. CLI’s early beginnings focused on English as a Foreign Language using a teaching compendium called FORYMED based on comprehensible input methods: TPR (James Asher), TPRS (Blaine Ray), The Natural Approach (Stephen Krashen). A few years later other languages


were incorporated in the programme: Spanish, Italian, German, French and Chinese. The compendium FORYMED is used to teach all the languages. Students range in age, the youngest being 4 years old, the oldest 57 years old. Classes can either be on a one to one basis or in groups. They may be in the morning, in the evening, although company classes are mostly in the morning. There are also continuing education courses for the Junta de Andalucía, and foreign students who come to learn Spanish. In 11 years, the number of students has increased significantly.
