Spanish courses in Barcelona at the Don Quijote Spanish Language School
Don Quijote has been offering Spanish courses in Barcelona for over 15 years and operates several Spanish language schools across Spain including programs at their centers located in Salamanca, Granada, Tenerife and Valencia. Additional Don Quijote Spanish schools are located in Seville and Madrid (please contact us by e-mail or phone for information on Spanish language courses at these destinations). All the schools are centrally located, and the same teaching method is used by all. Don Quijote emphasizes the practical use of the language. Even if you are a complete beginner, you will learn to communicate very quickly, as classes are taught entirely in Spanish. Teachers are highly skilled in teaching foreigners. Authentic study materials such as newspaper articles and videos are incorporated into the classes. The school never exceeds 8 students per group, thus allowing teachers to give personal attention to each student.
It is possible to combine Spanish language courses in the Don Quijote Spanish schools, for example, beginning a 4-week Spanish course in Salamanca, and ending it in Granada. This way, you can get to explore and experience different areas of Spain, and make your Spanish language study trip even more exciting!
The Barcelona Don Quijote Spanish school occupies an entire 5-story building located in the heart of the city center, on the famous boulevard ‘La Gran Vía’.
The Don Quijote Spanish school has 65 spacious classrooms all with windows and balconies. The ground floor is dedicated to the teachers’ room, multimedia classroom, a central meeting and recreational area where you can watch TV, read the newspapers, have coffee with your fellow students or do your homework. There is also a magnificent roof terrace available for student use.
