Each of our schools offer a variety of extracurricular activities for your enjoyment. A welcoming dinner party, numerous cultural visits, video nights, excursions, and plenty of parties are a few of the events you can look forward to. Above all, expect to dance a lot and eat very well. Although the activities are optional some of them are already included in our school fees, so we highly encourage you to take advantage of them. We truly feel it's important for you to not only receive an excellent education, but also to experience the social and cultural richness of Spain in its fullest. We believe this is one of the main reasons why so many of our students express a high level of satisfaction after having studied at our language schools.
Our extracurricular activities will be especially useful as way of introducing you to the local social scene. You'll come into close contact with Spain's culture and history. We're convinced that, given this context, learning Spanish will be an easier, more enjoyable and much more effective process for you. You'll find some images taken during some of our free time activities in the Photo Tour.
You'll attend classes in Spanish culture and take full day excursions to Tabarca Island and Valencia. We'll provide guided tours to museums and monuments, such as the Gavina Palace or the Archaeology Museum established in 1932.
Staff memebers at our Barcelona school will be delighted to show you around this wonderful city of artistry and cultural diversity.
