Welcome inside the school

All courses run from Monday to Friday (with exception to national and local holidays**), in various levels all year round. Groups are formed by level of Spanish. Courses may be held in the morning or in the afternoon but the majority of the year classes are held in the morning, with afternoon sessions more common during summer. Your exact class schedule is determined on your first day*.

On your first day, you will be grouped with students who share your level of language proficiency. The groups are full of people of all ages, background, and nationalities. We believe this makes a more interesting and educational environment. We have visited the school and verified small groups, quality textbooks and materials and a well-rounded structure to learn Spanish quickly. The school utilise a communicative approach and all classrooms has multimedia installed for interactive learning.

Shared Apartment

A Shared Apartment with Host is a great way to have an authentic, independent living experience in the city. Students will have a private bedroom in the apartment of a local and share common spaces.  Meals are self-catering so students can choose to cook at home or eat out. Each apartment has 1 to 4 international students, so there may be other Expanish students living in the same place, although this is not guaranteed.  There is always a local host living in the apartment to guarantee Spanish practice at home and contact with the local lifestyle.
