Spanish classes in Barcelona with city views

An unforgettable adventure in Spain

What city has more UNESCO listed buildings than Athens, more museums than Florence, more hashtags on Instagram than #Milano, bigger beaches than any city on the Mediterranean and more visitors each year than Rome, Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna or Madrid? Yes, it’s Barcelona!

Barcelona is a world-famous city that combines a medieval quarter and Spain’s most visited monument (the Sagrada Família) with one of Europe’s top 5 tech districts, a major international airport and the award for the ‘world’s #1 beach city’ from National Geographic.

Speakeasy BCN Spanish language school in Barcelona is right in the heart of the action. Spanish courses in Barcelona where you don’t just learn Spanish, you’re immersed in Spanish culture too!

Get internationally recognised Spanish language qualifications

Spanish is the most powerful language you can learn to unlock career opportunities in industries like tourism, international business, education, real estate, government, finance and development. Our Spanish courses in Barcelona give you qualifications that impress employers.

The Speakeasy curriculum follows the 6 levels of the internationally recognised Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): from A1 to C2. Because we’re an accredited language school, international students can get a long-term Spain student visa just by applying to one of our Spanish courses!

Immersive Spanish classes at our top-rated Spanish language school in Barcelona

How do you know our Spanish lessons will deliver? Our Spanish classes are small (maximum 8-13 students) so you never feel left behind. We’re the only school to introduce ‘mini levels’ between each stage of the CEFR framework to ensure you’re placed with students of the exact same ability.

You can choose from 15+ of our Spanish courses in Barcelona and determine how fast you want to earn qualifications and improve your career opportunities. We also have a ‘rolling admissions’ policy so you can start learning from the week you arrive.

    Els 4 gats

    This Thursday we will visit one of the oldest cafés in the city, a historic art nouveau style site that opened in 1896.
