Located in North East Spain, Barcelona is the capital of the Catalonia province and the largest city on the Mediterranean Coast. This unique destination has a fantastic combination of history, culture, shopping, beautiful buildings, incredible nightlife and kilometres of sandy beaches! Barcelona is simply wonderful cosmopolitan and one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Whatever your tastes, you will find it impossible not to love this city!

The influence of Antoni Gaudi evident throughout Barcelona and the famous Park Güell, Casa Batllo’ and the still unfinished La Sagrada Familia are absolutely must see attractions during your stay.

Stroll through the narrow streets of the Barrio Goticio, the medieval heart of Barcelona and experience an extravaganza of light and sound at the magic fountain of Montjuic and anyone with an eye for fashion and passion for shopping will appreciate the designer shops of Paseo de Gracia.

Sporting tradition is taken very seriously in Barcelona and local people are understandably proud of the range of sporting legends associated with the city, even for non-football fans, a visit to Camp Nou, home to FC Barcelona can be an exhilarating experience.

Taking a Spanish course in Barcelona means that you will have the opportunity to learn Spanish right in the heart of this amazing city!

    Our group courses in Barcelona are a great option for anyone trying to improve their understanding of Spanish and confidence in using their language skills.

For extra in-depth tuition, Private lessons are also available, allowing you to also customise your programme or focus on specific areas of the language to improve upon. These one-to-one Spanish lessons with your teacher can be booked either on their own or in addition to a group course.

    We understand how important booking the right type of accommodation can be, so our school in Bareclona offers a range of accommodation options to meet all requirements! All accommodation options are carefully selected to ensure you will never be more than 30 minutes away from the school.

    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 shared apartment accommodation, which is located within very easy reach of our school. Shared apartments are available on a self-catering basis, so you will have access to a kitchen where you can prepare your own meals. We also offer student residence accommodation where you will still live with other students, but meals are included, allowing you to choose between bed and breakfast, half board (2 meals each day) or full board (3 meals each day).


    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), flamenco shows, tapas nights and excursions to places such as Montserrat and 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!

    School Staff

    An enjoyable holiday language course, teachers very positive and friendly.

    Stayed with a lovely hostess, food and bedroom. Excellent location

    School Staff

    The instructors were excellent. I enjoyed our topics of conversation and getting to know my fellow students.

    Antonia was a wonderful host and a great cook. I really felt at home and she was very helpful to me.

    School Staff

    The course was interesting and the teachers were outstanding but I would have liked a more intensive approach towards the learning.

    The accommodation was clean and my privacy was highly respected. The kitchen and room helpers were very good.

    Thank you to the teachers, to the residence assistants and to Apple Languages for providing this experience.

    School Staff

    I really enjoyed the course, particularly when the lessons were more conversational. Having a range of teachers was also nice. 4 hours of lessons per day was a good amount. I feel I have learned a lot in a short space of time.

    I stayed with a family.

    School Staff

    The staff were lovely, friendly and competent. They were always helpful. I especially loved it when the teachers made it so fun to be learning with them. The accommodation itself was lovely. A great location and place to stay.

    Student stories on our blog

    A few local favourites in Barcelona

    Barcelona - Sagrada Familia 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. Read more...
