Frequently Asked Questions:
1.Are the FTS Stays adequate for people that do not speak any Spanish? NO. Our Stays are designed for people that have a basic knowledge of Spanish and are able to communicate in the language, even though it's in pigeon Spanish.
2.How do I know if I have the right level of Spanish? Try speaking to someone who speaks Spanish. If you are able to explain in a comprehensive way what you did yesterday or what you will be doing in the next couple of days, you will probably have enough Spanish. Although you probably knew this before you actually spoke to the Spanish speaking person
3.Can I go to a Stay with friends? We highly recommend that you do not. The idea is to be completely immersed into the Spanish language. If you go on the Stays with friends that normally speak in a language that is not Spanish, you will waste your time and money.
4.Can only one person come to the Stay with me? Yes, one person maximum, and under the understanding that Spanish must be spoken at all times. We realise that speaking in a language different to the usual one with a friend or family member is going to be very difficult. This decision must be made by you.
5.Can I extend my stay on the Stays? The FTS Stays are not extendable, but if you would like to stay longer in Spain, we will help you to find the best place to do so.
6.Can I start a Stay straight after finishing another one? Yes, this can be done in two ways, either communicating your wish to do so with enough time beforehand (30 days before the second Stay starts) or by asking for information on availability at the different Stays.
7.Is there any kind of discount available? Yes, we will give a discount to those participants that: a) Sign up for another Stay in the time period of up to 14 months after the end of the last Stay; b) Introduce another participant to FTS that wishes to participate in a Stay (this could include the person that accompanies); c) Sign up for two consecutive Stays.
