This intensive Spanish course is great for people who want to focus on learning to progress quickly. The intensive 20h course is our most popular course because our students know that there is no more effective and pleasant way to learn Spanish. Classes are 4 hours every day, Monday through Friday, in the morning or in the afternoon. Class is divided into two blocks, one teacher for each half, with a small break in the middle. This gives you time to cover all aspects of Spanish language learning each day: speaking, reading, writing, and listening.
Course start dates
If you already have some basic knowledge of Spanish or have a more advanced level, you can start any Monday. If you are a complete beginner, new courses start every other Monday throughout the year.

If you will be applying for a student visa application with your course at Speakeasy we will help you with the entire visa application process. All long-term course packages include all necessary application documents that you will need from the school. We have years of experience helping non-EU citizens to obtain their long-term student visas. We know it can be quite daunting and complex but you can take comfort in the fact that we will be there for you each step of the way.
Speakeasy is happy to offer you a selection of accommodation types if you need help finding a home away from home during your stay in Barcelona. Options include a room in a shared private apartment, host family, full private apartment or a room in a student residence. Most of our apartments, families and residences are located within 20 minutes from the school and the city center by public transport.
In addition to the comfort of knowing that you will be fully covered throughout your stay in Spain, many student visas require students to be covered with comprehensive medical insurance. If you plan to stay in Spain for more than 180 days and you need a long-term student visa (type D), you must have insurance with full coverage of medical services in Spain.
It’s a great experience, a chance to meet many interesting people, see new places and speak a new language. I like the way things are arranged at the school. The teachers are very professional. You start speaking Spanish very quickly. It seems that you just chat with friends, and then you notice that you understand people around you, you speak Spanish! It’s cool.
- If I get financial aid for studying in Speakeasy, will that reduce the number of weeks of CSN aid I get for studying at University?
No. Since our courses counts as being on a high school level and not university, you will have all of your CSN-weeks left after studying with us in Speakeasy.
- Do I have to buy the books?
The student book and workbook for your level are necessary to participate in class and available for purchase in reception. However, it is not required that you purchase them from Speakeasy if you already have them by other means.
- Do I have to pay for the course fee upfront and in-full?
Yes, the payment for the weeks of the course you want your spot reserved in must be in full and in paid in advance. This way your spot for the duration of the whole course will be reserved. It is also a requirement by the embassy if you are applying for a student visa to have your long-term course paid in full before applying for the visa.
