Learn Spanish in Granada, Spain
Description of Learn Spanish in Granada, Spain
Our Spanish language school is located in the very centre of one of the most unique and exciting cities in Spain, Granada, with easy access to the region’s ski resorts and beaches.
We have been providing high-quality language and cultural courses to foreigners who want to learn Spanish in Granada for over 15 years.
Being small and independent means we can offer a truly personal and friendly environment which is ideal when learning a foreign language. We try to provide something different and so pride ourselves on our individual and open approach to teaching.
The school is situated in a renovated house at the foot of the Albaicín, the oldest district in Granada. It is equipped with all modern facilities including a computer lab with free wireless access, patio, terrace, television room and a library full of Spanish books, music and films.
Communication is the key and our students enjoy the informal nature of classes set to a maximum of 8 meaning that every student can play an integral role in their daily lessons.
We have a choice of different types of Spanish language courses to suit your needs which are available for different durations, and with different accommodation options.

All accommodation is in the centre of Granada no more than a 15 minute walk from the school. We are very selective with the accommodation we provide and always ensure that it is owned by local landlords, is comfortable for all our guests and has a range of modern facilities.
Shared accommodation with Spaniards: single and double rooms are available. People travelling alone need to reserve an individual room. You can stay here, provided you are staying longer than six weeks. It offers the perfect opportunity to improve your Spanish. Students share a kitchen, bathroom and communal areas. All bed linen is provided but towels are not.
Shared accommodation with other students: single and double rooms are available. All apartments have communal kitchens, bathrooms and sitting rooms. You stay with other international students from the school meaning you can practise Spanish together. All bed linen is provided but towels are not.

This accommodation offers the perfect opportunity to experience Spanish life, practise your Spanish and helps the local community.

Reviewed on 23 Dec 2018 by Oliver WillderMy teachers had a great sense of humour and their conversational style of teaching really breathed life into the dryer grammatical topics, as well as producing some more eclectic points of vocabulary along the way. Read full review

Planet and peopleWe value our role within the community and regularly attend neighbourhood meeting where we help with decision making. We encourage all of our students who come to learn Spanish in Granada to use the local shops and stalls close to the school so that they can get a feel for the history and culture of the city and so that they can support local business.
All our teachers are employed from the local area and the accommodation provided, within walking distance from the school, is owned by local landlords or families. We ensure that the accommodation places our students in the centre of the community and that they will play a part in typical Spanish life.
We do not charge for the organisation or administration of activities, students only have to pay the entrance fees when at the particular place of interest. Therefore the money from our students goes directly to local businesses, guides and the attractions here in Granada.
We work with charities that help teenagers and young immigrants who have recently arrived in Spain with basic or no knowledge of Spanish. We provide them with teaching materials and support to help these people with their Spanish studies. This is important for us as we can use our main forte to help those in need.
We have written a Code of Conduct for all of our students and teachers. They can refer to this during their stay with us and again when travelling in the future. The Code specifies how you can be responsible and environmentally sustainable. We believe that if our students do at least one thing that is included in the Code then we should make a difference.
