Fly into El Prat Airport (Barcelona). With really cheap flights from most European destinations, it is very easy to get there.
Barcelona is one of the coolest cities in Spain, and Europe. Not only do you get to live here, immersing yourself in a new culture for a few weeks or months, but you´ll also become fluent in one of the most important and widely used languages in the world. After Barcelona, there´ll be no stopping you from hopping on a plane to South America, Central America or the Caribbean; the world is your oyster when you master the language of love!
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.
Did we mention that Barcelona is a beach city? So, if you´re feeling too hot from the gorgeous weather, or you want to relax after an intensive Spanish lesson, you can simply stroll to the beach to dip your toes in the warm Mediterranean Sea.
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. Trust us, there´s nowhere more exciting to spend a gap year than Europe in the summertime!

Learn Spanish In Barcelona Spain: Trip Highlights
We pack a load into this short itinerary that you still have plenty of time to check out the must see places and obligatory sites like the Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell Cathedral and much more.
- Intensive Spanish language classes
- Two hour boat party with live DJ and Unlimited beer and sangria (throughout the summer until the end of September)
- Lots of social excursions and activities in Barcelona
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.
A Rough Idea of Price
All of our gap year holidays are completely customised to your needs and prices will therefore vary based on things like the time of year and level of accommodation; but we want to give you as good an idea of how much this itinerary will cost.
