Location

Learn Spanish in Barcelona

Learn Spanish in Barcelona - the second largest city in Spain in both size and population. The capital of Catalonia is unequivocally a Mediterranean city, not only because of its geographic location but also and above all because of its history, tradition and cultural influences.

The documented history of the city dates back to the founding of a Roman colony on its soil in the second century B.C. Modern Barcelona experienced spectacular growth and economic revival at the onset of industrialization during the second half of the 19th century. The 1888 World's Fair became a symbol of the capacity for hard work and the international outlook projected by the city.

Learn Spanish in a world renowned city of culture

Culture and the arts flourished in Barcelona and in all of Catalonia; the splendor achieved by Catalonian modernism is one of the most patent displays.

Barcelona, more than just a single city, is really a collection of multi-faceted and diverse cities. The visitor unfamiliar with its history might be surprised that such a modern and enterprising city preserves its historic Gothic center almost intact, or by the curious contrast between the maze of narrow streets and the grid-like layout of the Eixample, the urban planning "Enlargement" project of the end of the 19th century.

Your accommodation can also be arranged for in one of the school’s carefully selected Spanish host families.






Standard Self-catering Apartments

You can choose to stay in a Standard Self Catering Apartment, which you will share with Spanish or other international students. These apartments are not located in the same building as our school and are a cheaper option.




Standard Student Residence

You can also choose to stay in standard student residence, with or without meals. This residence is not in the same area as the school. You will share the residence with Spanish people and sometimes also other international students, but, unlike staying in an apartment, you will not be able to cook there.



Private studio apartments

If you do not wish to share your apartment with other students, accommodation in private studio apartments can also be arranged.

On arrival

The accommodation is made available from the Sunday before their course starts, with departure on the Saturday after the course finishes. However, it is often possible to arrive a day earlier, or leave a day later, although, naturally, there will be a charge for the extra nights.

Should you wish to stay on in your accommodation after your course finishes, or if you would like to book accommodation for a friend or relative not be attending a Spanish course, this can normally be arranged for you, provided that the accommodation required is available.
