Founded in 1995 on Avenida Diagonal, BCN Schools has five school centers in Barcelona: in Grácia, at Rambla Catalunya Center, at Sagrada Familia Center, at the Sants-les corts Center, and at the Joanic Center. They teach Spanish for foreigners as their main core competence but also offer classes in Catalan, English, French, German, Italian and Russian.
The philosophy of BCN Languages is that they believe that languages are living entities and that you are learning through experience and contact with them and the modern culture they represent. The teaching methods of BCN Languages reflect the thrill experienced at the discovery of a new language.
You can take a direct online test to evaluate your language skill level to help you better, so you know exactly where to start. Choose the intensity of your classes based on the time commitment you can confirm. A very exciting class is the Intensive Course ELE 25 where you have one weekly excursion of 2 hours to visit exciting cultural places in Barcelona.
All groups are small and have never more than 13 students to ensure that each participant has enough time to practice the language and gets enough attention to address and fix mistakes and problems. Because you are going to take a Spanish level test, in the beginning, the level of all group members is closely matched to optimize the learning experience for everyone.
With the academic courses, the syllabus for one level of Spanish is completed in 3 months. You can decide how much time you have to invest and how fast you are able to reach your goals. In the end, you are able to take the DELE exam preparation and BCN Languages helps you prepare and pass your official Spanish certification.
To experience Barcelona and the Spanish culture at its best it is always a good choice to stay with some of the friendly Spanish host families where you can immerse yourself in every-day Spanish life. If you prefer to stay at a shared flat with other students that can be arranged as well or you like to at private student residences or a hotel instead? The BCN Languages will make sure to help you the perfect place that will fit your budget and style to make the most out of your Barcelona experience.
