Barcelona is a perfect place to learn Spanish. Barcelona combines a Mediterranean climate, fine sandy beaches, tons of bars, Catalan delicacies, and a vibrant, young population. It is a fascinating city with a very special charm – the ideal location for a Spanish language course.

The lively city by the sea caters to everyone; in addition to a mix of varied nightlife and fascinating sights and museums, Barcelona is known around the world for its extraordinary architecture. Architect Antoni Gaudi significantly influenced the Catalan capital; from Parc Güell and the fascinating La Sagrada Familia cathedral, to the many large and small structures that can be found throughout Barcelona, it is an art lovers dream.
