Spanish courses in Spain

Come and discover it!
Live with a host family and you will benefit from a total language immersion.
Learn Spanish while having loads of fun..

It is a language immersion program designed to improve your language skills by listening to Spanish in the real world, giving you exposure (access and experience) beyond textbook exercises.

Living with locals, traveling to a Spanish speaking country, immerse yourself in a culture, will take you out of the classroom. It will take you out of the classroom and let you see it as it’s used by real people, in real life. No doubt that you will exercise your mind and learn faster. Our program in Spain is located in the beautiful city of Gijón, in the region of Asturias, in northern Spain. The brave Cantabrian Sea has marked its history for more than 5,000 years.

Gijón has kept its Roman past alive at the Campa de Torres Archeaological Site (it was one of the main fortified settlements in Northern Spain way before 490 BC) and, specially, in the beautifully restored Roman baths at Campo Valdés (dating from the end of the 1st century AD)

The strengths that have made Gijón a city that attracts a growing number of visitors are a rich culture and cuisine that blend with its green landscapes, a comprehensive care of the environment, a high quality of life and a tourism model that focuses on the satisfaction of its visitors.
