Host family accommodation offers the opportunity to truly immerse yourself in the language and culture, whilst experiencing Barcelona in a unique and local way! If you prefer to stay more independently and would like to prepare your own meals, then you may like to consider our student residence, shared apartment or shared apartment plus accommodation, all located within very easy reach of our school.
Our colleagues at the school in Barcelona will do their best to help you make the most of your time in this wonderful city by offering you the opportunity to take part in the optional activities programme! With typical activities including guided tours of places of interest within the city (such as Park Guëll, the Sagrada Familia and Las Ramblas), tapas nights and excursions to places such as Sitges, there will be plenty to keep you entertained outside of the classroom! Activities will be conducted in Spanish, so this is a brilliant way of putting into practical usage that which you have learnt in your lessons!

A few local favourites in Barcelona
Home to one of our most popular language schools (and my very own big sister) Barcelona is always worth visiting, especially if you are living there as a student on a Spanish language course! I have personally visited Barcelona about 10 times now and even after being back home for just one week, I can’t wait until I have the opportunity to return again. There is just so much to see and do and experience for not only the tourist, but also those that live there, discovering new things every week or even every day.
