This is an intensive program with classes 20 hours per week over a minimum period of 12 weeks.

Our Long-Term Spanish program is ideal for broadening your horizons while learning a new language and improving your Spanish communication skills. We offer various destinations in Spain and provide a wide range of leisure activities in the program to complement your intensive Spanish classes with an authentic cultural immersion.

This long-stay course is designed to allow you to create a solid base in a new language or improve your level and fluency if you already have some Spanish knowledge.

You have the option to take one week off every 4 weeks of study. Example: You want to stay in Granada during 25 weeks while studying spanish and you need our visa letter for the embassy. In this case you would only need to pay for 20 weeks because you have the option to get 5 not consecutive weeks off if you pay for 20 weeks of classes.

Long-Term Intensive 20

Long-Term Intensive 20 is our long-term academic program.

The Long-Term Intensive 20 Spanish Program is for those wanting a flexible program that provides language tuition while allowing the full experience of linguistic immersion with extra time to explore the city and culture.

This program consists of 20 group classes each week, which are generally during the morning in small groups with a maximum of 8 students and an average of 6 students per class. Classes focus on oral expression and comprehension, as well as written communication and interaction; all of which are key components of learning and becoming fluent in a new language.

Following an oral and written placement test that you will complete on your first day at the school, you will be placed in classes that correspond to your correct Spanish level. Classes for every level start every Monday. At the end of the program you will receive a certificate documenting your progress, hours completed, and level of proficiency achieved.
