Learn Spanish in Barcelona

Barcelona offers the visitor an unforgettable experience and the opportunity to learn Spanish in what is undeniably one of the most beautiful cities in the world - Barcelona. This is a modern, thriving city, yet at the same time rich in cultural and historical heritage - the architecture of Gaudí, the Gothic Quarter, the Roman ruins, the famous 'Ramblas', as well as the Picasso and Dalí museums and all the beautiful buildings of the modernist period, which fill the centre of this outstandingly beautiful and atmospheric city. All this makes Barcelona a simply ideal location for a Spanish language course.

You can learn Spanish in Barcelona on one of our Spanish language courses and at the same time enjoy the 4 kilometers of sandy beaches, a wonderful Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and mild winters, stunning scenery and the ski resorts of the Pyrenees Mountains are less than 2 hours drive away. Because of its superb location, on the Mediterranean, yet close to the mountains and beautiful countryside, Barcelona offers you everything, whatever your tastes or interests.

Whether you are interested in a Spanish course of just 1 week or 36 weeks, and whichever time of year you choose to study, Barcelona is sure to thrill and enchant you. This is truly a city for all tastes and all seasons and you can experience it with us, practising in the street the Spanish you learn in class. We look forward to welcoming you here soon on one of our Spanish courses!
