  • Anthony Sarmiento Speakeasy, October 2020

    Super fun school! Took both online and in person classes. The teachers are all super nice and make learning Spanish fun. They have weekly activities where you can meet other students and experience Spain. The staff is friendly and professional. No complaints I had a great time here!

  • Gerard Don Speakeasy, May 2021

    The 6-hours a week Evening Course helped me get my Spanish from a very basic level to upper intermediate in less than 6 months. During the classes we use a variety of different learning techniques in a small group of students and Georgina has been a great teacher, facilitating an interactive experience. Next to a full-time study or job it is demanding – but rewarding, fun and definitely worth it!

  • Kwong Him Hung Speakeasy, March 2021

    It is a great Spanish school for beginners like me. It is located at the centre of Barcelona and very accessible. The staff are so nice and supportive and provided so much information that I needed (especially Kenny). Teachers are passionate and the vibes are so good. I joined the intensive class.

  • Werner Van Laack Speakeasy, October 2021

    The whole experience at Speakeasy is great. My booking with Kenny was very easy and he did great with providing me the courses that I need to improve my level in Spanish. The reception in general is very friendly and helpful, same as the whole staff. I had various courses at Speakeasy (Intensive course, conversation class and business class) and every class I attended was fun and improved my Spanish. The teachers I had are very experienced, take care of each student and lead the classes in a fun way with a focus on a good atmosphere for learning. I would like to highlight the activities organized by Lina. They were my absolute favorites no matter what. We had great nights discovering famous bars or playing volleyball on the beach. The activities were really great to meet new people from all over the world while improving your Spanish. I would like to return to Speakeasy next year for more courses and would recommend Speakeasy in every way possible!

  • Phil Opaola Speakeasy, February 2022

    I’ve been a student at speakeasy for a month and a half now, and it’s been going even better than I could’ve expected. We started learning practical Spanish from day 1 and by the end of the first week I was already able to have basic conversations with cashiers, friends, and people I met while out and about. There’s no better motivation than being able to use the words and phrases you learn in class to immediately connect with people. Of course the quality of learning also stems from the quality of teaching, and I can’t speak highly enough of my professor at the school, Cristina Revenga. In addition to a varied pedagogical approach (which keeps the whole class engaged for 4 hours at a time) and an endless amount of enthusiasm for the subject, she’s also a great source of knowledge about Spanish culture. She’s constantly recommending songs, books, food, festivals and other ways to engage with the language and culture outside of class. My classmates also bring a diverse range of backgrounds to the classroom. It’s great learning about Camino de Santiago with an architect in class who can talk about the history of Romanesque architecture in Spain, or learning about linguistic similarities between Spanish and Swedish, Dutch or German from students from those countries. Basically, if you’re interested in learning Spanish and are curious about taking an immersive approach, you can’t go wrong with this academy.

  • Kuo Lucio Speakeasy, June 2019

    Very nice people at Speakeasy. The faculty are so welcoming and teachers put a lot of effort into teaching and you get to know people from all around the world. With the help of the school you can easily learn Spanish. The teachers are all very nice and attentive to every student. Furthermore, the school arranges activities for you to join after class. Which made you connected with the people and the city better. Great place for learning and making friends!

  • Deniz Dönmez Speakeasy, February 2020

    I passed the B2 level DELE exam thanks to Speakeasy’s intensive DELE preparation course. We had very intensive and interactive classes in just 4 weeks. It all went well, systematically. We did many examples and cases from the exams. On top of this, it was fun. I am happy to have gotten to know my teachers, Ana and Marta. Thank you for everything!

  • Lauren Chapman Speakeasy, March 2021

    I started this program in November of 2020 and have been enrolled for 16 weeks. The amount I’ve progressed is tremendous. One of the main reasons I’ve advanced so far in my ability to speak, listen and write is due to the phenomenal teachers at this school. I had 4 different teachers with their own unique styles. I can say that every single one was amazing and pushed me to get to the point where I am now. Thanks to Olga, Marta, Verónica and Joan, I can now confidently say I speak Spanish and navigate myself through Spain without so much fear of having to communicate. I have met many students from other language schools who switched to Speakeasy and all of them have told me this school is the best Spanish learning school they’ve gone to due to the amazing professors. I highly recommend you take classes here!

  • Zara Malik Speakeasy, March 2021

    Speakeasy has so far made my experience one to remember. I felt so welcomed and the classes have so far been very helpful. My teachers make learning that much more fun with class activities and group assignments. Also, meeting new people was so easy and comfortable at speakeasy and through the exciting events. I thought it would take me a few months to settle in and adjust, but it has only taken me days. I’m glad I chose speakeasy for this exciting new chapter in my life

  • Bianca Gonçalves Moreira Speakeasy, May 2019

    I am new at the school, but I can already say that I was surprised with the quality from my reception with Yasmin (attentive and friendly!), from teachers Bea and Txemi (which are great and the classes are flying by) and the events by Anna (always friendly and concerned to always promote the best). I really recommend Speakeasy as the best option in Barcelona!

  • Andreas Weiler Speakeasy, August 2019

    Energetic, yet patient teachers. Great teacher to student ratio (1:5 for my classes). Young, fun international office and activities team. Kept me busy and made my stay in Barcelona super colorful. Will definitely be back. Muchas gracias amigos!
