Spanish language school International House Barcelona was founded in 1972 and has since grown into a major centre for language teaching, teacher training, study tours and related activities.

More than 3,000 students learnt Spanish with us last year, on the different courses that we offer.

There is plenty of opportunity for our students of Spanish to meet native Spanish speakers, make friends and improve their fluency outside the classroom, in the bar, at social events like our very popular Friday Club, etc.

The quality of our teaching is guaranteed by the fact that we only use fully trained teachers who have been carefully selected to match the high standards we set ourselves.

Regular courses and seminars held in the school, combined with frequent visits to and from other schools, help to ensure that these standards - and our reputation - are constantly upheld.

We have been approved by the European Union's Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) which accredits our school as an institution that does its utmost to protect the environment.

Courses

  • General Spanish

    From 16 years From 7 to 10 students per class Length of course minimum 1 week Length of lesson 45 min For all language levels
    Our intensive course gives you 20 hours of Spanish a week – enough to learn lots of Spanish but still have time to explore a truly lovely city, and the island of Mallorca.
    Our intensive group Spanish courses in Palma consist of 4 hours tuition per day, from Monday to Friday. Classes normally take place from 09.30 to 13.30, with a twenty-minute break for coffee taken halfway through the morning.

    The main objective of most of our Spanish courses is to improve your communicative skills and so the emphasis of classroom activities is the development of your ability to speak and understand spoken Spanish.

    For this reason, classes are conducted entirely in Spanish and you get plenty of opportunity to practise the sort of language you're likely to need outside the classroom. We don't just want you to "know" Spanish, we want you to be able to use it!

    Due attention is also paid to grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing skills, and a wide variety of materials is used including published materials from many sources as well as materials which have been written by our own teachers.

    All materials you need to work with are provided free of charge. This includes one Spanish coursebook which is given to you at the beginning of the course.

    There is a maximum of 10 students per group and the minimum age for these courses is 16.

  • Private Tuition

    From 16 years 1 students per class Length of course minimum 1 week Length of lesson 45 minutes For all language levels
    Our One-to-One private Spanish classes consist of 1 or more hours of individual tuition per day. You can either study entirely in this way, or, if you prefer, combine an intensive course in the mornings with 1 or more hours of individual tuition in the afternoons.

    The contents, times and starting dates of your private classes can be arranged to suit your needs. For example, courses can be designed for people who need to develop negotiating skills, presentation skills, telephone skills, writing skills, etc.

    We offer individual tuition at all levels from beginners to very advanced. We also offer individual tuition to students of all ages. We can also offer classes, similarly tailor-made, for two students studying together provided you have similar levels and linguistic needs.

    Here you have an option to choose 10 hours per week, but you can choose any amount of hours per week.
  • Executive Plus

    From 16 years 1 students per class Length of course minimum 1 week Length of lesson 45 min For all language levels
    Enjoy 30 hours of one-to-one Spanish tuition on our five-day, tailor-made "Executive Plus" programme.

    Each Executive Plus course is designed from both a level test and a detailed needs analysis; each is therefore 'tailor-made' for each individual student and his or her particular needs, and is designed to enable you to communicate more effectively.

    About the course

    Our five-day "Executive Plus" immersion Spanish course includes:
    - 30 hours of one-to-one tuition during the programme

Accommodations

    Host Family

    From : 16 years
    Time in transit : maximum 20-30 minutes by public transportation
    All our host families live in flats, as there are practically no individual houses in Barcelona. Apartment buildings (both old and modern) are rarely more than 8 floors high. A typical flat will have 3 or 4 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, a dining room and living room. Some flats have terraces; almost all of them have balconies.

    It is difficult to describe a typical family as there is such a variety; some are young couples, some have children still living at home, others - perhaps the majority - have grown-up children who no longer live at home, but who often appear for lunch on Sundays! Lunch is usually eaten quite late - around 2.30 p.m., and dinner is usually at about 9.00 p.m.

    Location Most families live near the school and are rarely more than 20 minutes away by public transport. Very occasionally, a family may be up to 30 minutes from the school as some of the most elegant districts of Barcelona are on the edge of the city.

    We also have a limited number of host families who live in larger, 'up-market' apartments and who can also offer students their own private bathroom. These families will also undertake to do their students' washing and ironing.

    The higher prices we charge for these families reflect the extra services and facilities they provide.

    Student Residence

    From : 18 years
    Time in transit : 20-25 mins by public transport
    The residence occupies the whole of the first floor and ground floor of a large, smart, apartment building. There are 49 bedrooms in total including single rooms, double rooms and some triple rooms.

    The residence has a capacity for 70. All of the bedrooms have wardrobe space and tables and 6 of the bedrooms also have their own private bathrooms. There are 22 bathrooms in total.
    Year-round in single rooms; shared rooms available July to September.

    Location

    In one of Barcelona's posher residential districts, Tres Torres/Bonanova.

    There are 2 options for travelling to the school:

    The metro station El Putxet is approx. 5 minutes walk from the residence. Trains go to Plaza Cataluña (10 minutes), less than 5 minutes from the school.
    Buses numbers 14 & 58 are approx. 2 minutes from the residence and stop outside the El Corte Inglés department store in Plaza Cataluña (total journey time approx. 25 minutes).

    A 10-journey metro/bus ticket costs around €10.30.

    Students can be accommodated either on a bed and breakfast basis or half board. Full board accommodation can be arranged on request. The menus are varied and balanced and the quality and quantity of food provided is very good. Water is provided with meals and other drinks are available from a vending machine. Breakfast is from 08.00 to 10.00 and dinner from 20.00 to 21.30.

    Students are not permitted to use the kitchen to cook in, but they are allowed to keep food in the refrigerator and make use of the microwaves. There is one refrigerator in each flat, 8 in total.
    Washing facilities

    Students have access to a washing machine, iron, etc. The washing machine functions with tokens that cost €2 each. Bed linen is changed every week and towels are changed twice a week.

    The residence, which is normally used to accommodate female university students, is extremely well maintained and kept very clean.

    Shared apartments

    From : 18 years
    Time in transit : 10-20 minutes from the school on foot or by public transport
    We have a number of furnished apartments available for rent which you can share with other students. The normal minimum period for renting an apartment is 4 weeks, although shorter rentals can sometimes be arranged on request.

    Each apartment also has a kitchen, bathroom and living room which you share, and each room is furnished with a bed, desk and wardrobe.

    Facilities include a washing machine and TV. Some apartments also have telephones but these are programmed to accept incoming calls only.

    Each student is provided with a set of keys so that they can come and go when they please.

    You are provided with sheets, blankets and towels, but you should bring your own beach towels. The apartments are cleaned once a week and bed linen is also changed weekly.
    Location

    All apartments are centrally located and are therefore approximately 10-20 minutes from the school on foot or by public transport.
    Arrival

    On arriving (the Sunday before the course begins), you should make your own way to your apartment (unless a transfer has been requested). We will send the address of the apartment to you when your booking is confirmed.

    You must inform us of travel arrangements and your estimated time of arrival; this will avoid the person handing over the keys having to wait in the apartment unnecessarily, or you having to wait in the street.
