Barcelona is a fantastic place to live and learn Spanish for many reasons; the year-round great weather, the amazing arts and music scene, including huge festivals like Benicassim, the Primavera Sound Festival and Sonisphere Barcelona Festival, and, of course, the city´s central location in Europe allows you to easily explore some of the best spots on the continent.

What should you do when you´re not studying Spanish? There are lots of things to do on your time off, from exploring the history and culture of Barcelona through the beautiful architecture, the amazing museums and the mesmerising art, to travelling around the country and continent, visiting the best beaches, cities and festivals that Europe has to offer.

THE BARCELONA SPANISH COURSE
Learning Spanish in Barcelona is easy, fun and flexible. All of our courses in Barcelona can be completely tailored to suit your lifestyle, whether you want to accommodate a job and can only commit to a few hours of learning each week, or if you want to fully immerse yourself in the language-learning process and come out speaking Spanish like a native.
From just 5 hours a week in the mornings or evenings, to over 30 hours a week of intensive full-time learning, our Spanish courses are both professional and extremely effective, leaving you with plenty of time and independence to decide how you spend the rest of your time in Spain.
In fact, the courses have a nice little twist to them in the form of ´gamification´. In the ´Casa´ where you will go to complete your lessons, beginners start on the bottom floor of the building (Level A1) and literally ´level up´ as their Spanish improves and they move on to more difficult courses. By improving your skills, you will gradually move up to higher floors in the building until you reach the very top level; floor 6 (Level C2)!
It´s these small details that make learning Spanish with us so fun and intriguing. No more boring classes, yawn-inducing teachers or pointless books. We provide you with the best, most appropriate material, the coolest and most qualified teachers, and the most amazing way to learn Spanish fast; through living and immersing yourself in one of the coolest cultures and cities in Europe!
All of the Spanish courses have been certified by the Cervantes Institute, so you can be confident that the qualifications you receive in Barcelona will be widely recognized as standard-level Spanish qualifications across the world.
Apart from the weather, food, amazing city and awesome culture, one of the main reason why so many students choose to study in our Barcelona Spanish school is because of the flexibility they are awarded here.
From choosing how many hours you want to study per week, to choosing how many weeks you will stay in Barcelona, there is a lot of room for flexibility and changes of plans. You can even extend your course on a week-by-week basis, in case you are not sure how long you can stay. That means you´ll have plenty of time to yourself for traveling, eating, partying, dating hot Spaniards, or whatever other way you choose to spend your time!
Choose from the Standard Spanish Courses (max. 10 students per class) with hours ranging from 6 to 30 hours per week, the Combined Spanish Courses (private and group lessons) with hours ranging from 5 to 24 hours per week, or a range of other courses like the Exam Preparation Courses, Private Spanish Courses, Express Spanish Courses and Long Courses (up to 48 weeks!!).
With your accommodation sorted jump on the airport bus (A2) or get a train (departing every half an hour direct from the airport) and this will get you into the city centre in 20 min. Head to the homestay to check in, before heading over to our central Barcelona language school to meet the team.
One of the really nice things about this learn Spanish programme is that you stay in a homestay in Barcelona. This really helps you integrate with the local environment and it’s really nice to have a supporting friendly family looking after you.
As the name suggests, a homestay is where you live with a host family. All of our host families have been thoroughly vetted, and are used to hosting our students so even if you are a little bit nervous about going to a completely foreign city you will be made most welcome.
The host family will take care of your accommodation and your food during your stay. Obviously there’s a social side to studying Barcelona as well, as you will be meeting and hanging out with other students but always be mindful and respectful of your host family as well.
Typically you will have your own room in an apartment or house close to the language school. Each of our host families are located in different areas, so they will familiarise you with the Metro system (Barcelona has an excellent public transport infrastructure) and you will feel at home in no time.
