Our institute was born in Spain, created by bilingual people who have worked in the study and work abroad industry for a long time. From personal experience, we have mastered the ins and outs of traveling, living and working in another country.

No matter which program you choose, how long you stay, where you want to go or what language you speak, our goal is to help our participants fully immerse themselves in another culture. Each program is structured to help you learn about the language, customs and lifestyles of the local people.

We offer a wide variety of courses. Whether it is linguistic, academic, or professional, our program is tailored to fit your needs. No matter your previous background in this international language, we will help you to assimilate Spanish quickly and easily.

Our experienced teachers are here to assist you with all your questions, queries and concerns.

Whatever you need to make the best of your experience!

Afternoons are filled with a wide variety of courses along with fun activities, outings, fiestas, barbecues, concerts, cinema and sports. You will have the chance of meeting Spanish people, make friends, and practice what you have learned through contacts provided at our institute.

The curriculum is designed with you the learner in mind: to build your skills and confidence. Classes are focused on the essentials of language acquisition: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
