Spanish Club 50+ courses, Palma

Our Spanish Club 50+ courses in Palma take place at our Spanish language school in the city centre. Internationally renowned as one of the world’s top tourist destinations, the city’s honey-coloured and intricately-detailed buildings contrast with verdant palm trees, vivid blue skies, and the gorgeous waters of the Mediterranean. Our language school here has 14 air-conditioned classrooms, some of which are accessible for students with reduced mobility or those using a wheelchair. The building has several student common areas with comfortable seating that are great for socialising, relaxing, or studying between lessons. There’s also a computer lab available for schoolwork or personal use.

Dotted around the city are many parks and green spaces, each providing a peaceful oasis in the middle of this bustling capital. One such park, the quaint Parc de Sa Feixina, is just a 5-minute walk from our language school. Near here you’ll find segments of the ancient city walls, the striking Bastion of Sant Pere and the modern art museum it houses, and Mercat de l’Olivar, a popular street market that has sold fresh seafood, local fruit and veg, and delicious street food to locals and tourists alike since 1951. Palma’s iconic cathedral and the numerous attractions that surround it are just a 20-minute walk away and can be easily accessed by buses which stop around the corner from the school.

With accreditations from the Cervantes Institute and the National Federation of Schools of Spanish for Foreigners (FEDELE), this language centre offers demonstrably high-quality language tuition. The school’s proximity to Palma’s wealth of history, art, and architecture - which it blends seamlessly with a vibrant and modern atmosphere - makes it a sought-after facility in which to learn Spanish.

Accommodation

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

Lodging is available in the homes of local homestay hosts, which is a great way to maximise your language immersion. You’ll live 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’ travel from the school by public transport and all offer a safe and comfortable living environment. You’ll have a private single or twin* bedroom and 1 or 2 meals per day as part of your accommodation package (breakfast or breakfast and dinner). As standard, you’ll share the living and bathroom facilities with your host(s) and any other students 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. Hosts offering private bathroom access will also provide an ironing service at no extra cost. You will have your own key to come and go as you please, but you must respect house rules and schedules.

*Twin rooms are only available to students travelling together.

Accommodation is available from the Sunday before the start of your course until the Saturday after your course finishes. Check-in and check-out times are usually very flexible.

The Club 50+ package includes a selection of social and cultural activities designed to supplement your Spanish tuition and give you the best possible experience in Palma. You’re guaranteed to have 4 activities per week, though others may also be available.

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 complete beginners to advanced-level learners. You do not need to start your course on a specific date if you are a beginner; since this programme only runs at certain times of year, all available start dates are appropriate for all students, regardless of their starting language level.

Please contact us if you are unsure if this programme would be suitable for you; we will be happy to advise you.

How to get there

Palma de Mallorca Airport is around a 20-minute drive from the city centre and is easily accessible from many European cities.

From here, 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 the 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 the airport in time for your departing flight.

You should arrange to arrive in Palma 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.
