Learn Spanish in Salamanca (Premium), Spain
Also Available:• Salamanca
Salamanca is the perfect choice if you want to learn Spanish in a part of Spain where there is no accent or regional dialect. If you attend a Spanish course in Salamanca, you will learn Spanish in a beautiful, very historic and very ‘Spanish’ city, unspoilt and untouched by mass tourism. We have two schools in Salamanca, each school offering high-quality Spanish courses. Both our schools in Salamanca are located just a short walk from the Main Square, in the historic centre of the city. Our school in Salamanca is located 5 minutes’ walk from the famous Plaza Mayor.
I just loved the whole experience, the school, the staff, EVERYTHING. Perfect location and perfect school! It was great!
Absolutely amazing, never would have believed I could learn so much and have so much fun.
Choosing the school in Salamanca was definitely the best decision in my life. Salamanca is probably the best place to recommend for students to study Spanish.
It was great being surrounded by people of so many nationalities and ages,all doing our best to converse in Spanish! A fantastic experience which I hope to repeat sometime next year.
Thoroughly enjoyed my time in Salamanca: the people were friendly, the teachers enthusiastic and fun and the city itself was beautiful.
During and after my course I noticed a considerable improvement in all aspects of my Spanish. It is definitely more profitable to study the language in Spain itself than in England.
Course was good, the classes were the right size, teachers were great - friendly and helpful.
The course was excellent just was I wanted. I learned so much in my week there. Fabulous.
The course was very well done, small classes, good atmosphere, competent teachers, pleasant! The accommodation was great! Very welcoming, clean rooms, very good food. An experience to live and relive!
I had one to one tuition from 3 teachers all of whom I thought were excellent. They were lively and interesting and guaged my level correctly and made me work hard.

Students can learn Spanish on a wide range of Spanish courses, including a Business Spanish Course and a DELE Exam Preparation course. The maximum class size is 4 or 9 students per class – smaller than at most schools - depending on the course.
You can stay in carefully selected Spanish host families, shared student apartments, or else in private studio apartments. The studio apartments are just a short walk from the school, in the historic centre of Salamanca, just off the Plaza Mayor. Students who stay in Spanish speaking host families tend to learn faster, as they practice with their families the Spanish that they learn on the course.
The school organizes full-day weekend excursions to Toledo, Madrid, Zamora, Segovia and Avila. Four free ‘culture lessons’ per week are also provided by the school, plus an extensive program of visits and activities - all designed to help students use the Spanish that they learn at the school. These visits include guided walks within Salamanca, sports, tapas tours with the Spanish teachers and weekly parties.
Hidden Treasure in Salamanca!
There is no better place on Earth to study Spanish than in Salamanca! The city’s majestic architecture, cultural history, and linguistic purity are unique characteristics that, for me, make Salamanca a city of hidden treasure.
Due to its lavishly decorated sandstone cathedrals and university buildings, Salamanca is so distinctively called La Dorada (“The Golden City”). Not only does the sun bathe Salamanca’s landmarks in resplendence right before sunset, but the city is rich with local legends and stories.
I tagged along a guided tour of the city and learned about the cleverly hidden “lucky frog” (“la rana de suerte”) on the main façade of the Universidad Civil building. According to legend, university students received good luck for a year with their studies if they found the frog without help. Nowadays, tourists will gaze upward for an hour in the hopes that they find the frog and are then blessed with one year of good luck. If you go to Salamanca, this is a must-do before you leave!
