You’ve been thinking seriously for months about taking a Spanish language course. You want to start from the very beginning, or maybe you want to improve your grammar or speaking. How do you know which class is right for you? Are you unsure about which school fits your needs? We’ve put all that work onto one easy-to-read page.
Speakeasy prides itself on the quality of its classes. We have qualified Spanish teachers from Spain and we focus on Spanish immersion directly from the beginning. This all-Spanish class method allows students to learn more vocabulary, Spanish sentence structure and eliminates word-for-word translations which seldom work. Our students come from all parts of the globe and for many, Spanish will become the common language amongst students. Another great thing? Speakeasy is located right in the heart of Barcelona near Plaça Universitat. It’s easy to get to and the central location offers restaurants, cafés and bars you can enjoy before or after your classes.
How big are the class sizes at Speakeasy?
We offer a variety of Spanish classes starting at level A1 up to C2. Depending on how many people sign up for the course at the time, you can have anywhere from 3 students up to 10. Usually, once you get to a higher level, class sizes decrease, giving you the best opportunity to practice your speaking. Small, intimate classes also mean that you will have special attention from the teacher to work on your problem areas.
