Spanish Club 50+ courses, Cadiz

Our Spanish Club 50+ courses in Cádiz take place at our Spanish language school on the edge of the city’s central Old Town. The locals here are well-known for being very open, friendly and welcoming, making Cádiz a fantastic location for learning Spanish! Our school here is part of a group of schools that was founded in 1983 and therefore has over 30 years’ experience teaching Spanish to international students of all ability levels. The Cádiz facility has 13 classrooms, a kitchen for cookery lessons, and various study spaces. A spacious student lounge allows you to socialise or catch up on schoolwork between lessons. The jewel of the building is undoubtedly its rooftop terrace, an excellent spot for a bit of relaxation under the sun.

The school’s prime placement close to some of the city’s main attractions makes it a sought-after study location. Just a 5-minute walk away is the Puertas de Tierra - ‘Gates of the Earth’ - the old entrance to the city that dates back to the 16th century. Nearby is the Ancient Roman amphitheatre, which is considered to be the second-largest in the world, and Cádiz Cathedral, an impressive Baroque construction overlooking the coast. Dominating the city’s skyline, the cathedral is perhaps best-known for its golden-tiled dome, which shimmers in the bright Mediterranean sunshine. The cathedral’s Levant Tower is open to the public and offers stunning views over this ancient city. Also within easy reach of the school are several public parks and Playa Santa María del Mar, a small and sheltered beach that’s popular with the locals.

Our Cádiz school is accredited by the Cervantes Institute and the universities of Seville and Barcelona. It is also a member of the International Association of Language Centres (IALC) and the Spanish Federation of Schools of Spanish for Foreigners (FEDELE). These credentials demonstrate the high quality of tuition available here. Cádiz is compact enough that our school is within easy reach of all the sights and sounds of this cultural capital.

Accommodation

Accommodation is not included in the Club 50+ programme as standard but can be added to your tuition package.

For a fully immersive experience, we recommend that you select homestay lodging. You’ll stay with a native Spaniard and be able to practice Spanish with them, so you can carry on learning even outside the classroom. Hosts live up to 20 minutes’ walk from the school and all offer a safe and comfortable living environment. You’ll have a private single or twin* bedroom and 1, 2, or all 3 meals per day as part of your accommodation package. Special diets - such as vegan, gluten-/lactose-free, halal, etc. - can be provided for an additional fee (does not include vegetarian diets). As standard, you will share the living and bathroom facilities with your host(s) and any other students living in the home, though some hosts can offer rooms with private bathroom access (subject to availability). Bed linens, towels, and a weekly laundry service are included in the accommodation package. You will have your own key to come and go as you please, but you must respect house rules and schedules.

If you prefer more privacy, a studio apartment would be the best option. Apartments are located within a maximum of 20 minutes’ walk from the school and are usually close to public transport links. You’ll have a sizeable single or twin* flat with its own fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom; many apartments also have a separate lounge area. The studios are offered on a self-catering basis, giving you the freedom to cook for yourself during your stay. Bed linens and towels are provided as standard. Many apartments or apartment blocks have on-site laundry facilities, but some may not; you may therefore need to use a local laundrette for this service. All apartments have air-conditioning, heating, and Wi-Fi access.

*Twin rooms are only available to students travelling together.

All accommodation is available between the Sunday before the start of your course and the Saturday after your course finishes. Check-in and check-out times vary based on the type of lodging selected.

Suitability

This programme is ideal for mature students wanting to study Spanish with other international learners of a similar age. Tuition is suitable for students of any ability level, from beginner right up to advanced.

How to get there

Cádiz does not have its own airport, though there are several international airports close to the city that you can travel to. Jerez Airport is just over 30 minutes away; Seville Airport is 1.5 hours away; and Málaga Costa del Sol Airport is 2.5 hours away. These three airports are all easily accessible from many European cities.

From these airports, you can either take public transport to your accommodation or we can add an airport transfer service to your booking for an additional charge. If you select this service, a driver will be waiting for you at your chosen airport when you land and will take you directly to your accommodation. If you select this service on departure as well, you will be collected from your lodging on your last day and taken back to your chosen airport in time for your departing flight. Transfer services are also available at Cádiz train station.

You should arrange to arrive in Cádiz on the Sunday before the course starts and depart on the Saturday after the course finishes. We may be able to arrange extra nights on arrival and/or departure for you if needed.
