Spanish schools reopen after closure due to COVID-19

Since March 14th when the Spanish government decided to close all language schools we have been successfully offering a range of online programmes to our students. These courses will continue and can still be reserved up until our schools reopen for face to face classes.

Discover more about our current special offers including a free online (group) course if you book a Spanish course in Spain in 2020 or in 2021. This promotion will not be available for long!

The COVID-19 virus has had a considerable impact on Spain; however the strict restrictions placed upon the country have thankfully produced positive results with numbers dropping week by week to what is now a manageable situation. The government has introduced a gradual ‘phasing’ out of lockdown with language schools principally allowed to re-open in ‘Phase 2’. This along with the recent confirmation that travel to Spain will no longer be restricted as of July 1st means our Spanish schools in Spain are able to confirm their opening dates in Late June or early July.

What measures will our schools put in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff?

Schools have naturally complied with recommendations from health authorities both nationally and locally to ensure appropriate hygiene and saftey measures are met. Whilst the exact measures may differ according to the region they would most likely include:

  • Keeping distance inside classrooms
  • Wearing a face mask where possible
  • Temperature control of all students and staff at school entrance
  • Extra cleaning of door handles, toilets, etc.
  • Washing hands more often (with soap or disinfectant)
  • Outdoor classes
  • Etc.

Naturally any new students will be informed by the school what proceedures are in place along with any specific measures applied to accommodation .
