Our Long-term Spanish courses are a great option if you want to learn Spanish and enjoy living in Barcelona for a longer period of time. These courses meet the requirements to apply for a student visa in Spain.
In our Long-term Accelerated Spanish program, you’ll study 20 hours of Spanish each week and cover up to 6 levels of the CASA program. Classes are 4 hours each day, Monday through Friday, from 9h – 13h. 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. You’ll also have the option to include the DELE exam preparation course in packages from 36 weeks and more.
This program is intended for those who would like to take advantage of their time in Barcelona and fully commit to learning as much Spanish as possible. No other program delivers the same results or will increase your level or Spanish faster than the Accelerated Spanish program at Speakeasy.

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 is my fourth week with the program, and I plan to stay for 8-10 more weeks. The quality of the teachers is very high, I’ve been impressed with their abilities to explain words and concepts in Spanish to those who are learning without utilizing another language such as English or a dictionary. It’s a truly immersive experience, which helps one progress quite rapidly. In addition, they take the weekly social activities seriously, so that we can enjoy and get to know other students and the city. Each week they prepare several activities for students and alumni at no or very low cost (i.e. €5). Lastly, customer service is excellent. They worked with me and around my specific situation and problem(s), came up with creative solutions, were accommodating, etc. I would give a 6-star rating if I could! Above these very practical things, this place is so much fun!
- Are Speakeasy teachers native Spanish speakers? What are their qualifications?
Yes. All our teachers are native Spanish speakers from Spain. They all have a university degree, special training in ELE (Español como Lengua Extranjera) and experience teaching Spanish to foreigners.
- When can I take my holidays?
You can take them whenever you like! You just need to let us know with at least ten days advanced notice so we can plan classes and place you in the correct course for your return.
- Do you offer help to students who want to obtain a student visa?
Yes, we provide the necessary documents you will need from Speakeasy to apply for your student visa in Spain. Since additional documents required for application depend on the country you´re coming from we suggest getting in touch with the embassy in the city you will be applying in.
