SCHOOL LIFE IN SPAIN In school, you will quickly find out that things are different. In the Spanish school select line, for example. Economic, Humanitarian, Natural Sciences or Technical line. Teaching is usually in the form of classes where students listen, and interact with in the class. The teachers are great, communicated on great level with students and have fun too.
