Course overview

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.

Reviews

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.

FAQs

Can I also share a room with another person (friend/family) in the host family's house?

Yes, you can. Booking a double room allows you to share your room with someone else. If you want to stay in a double room you’ll need to book together with the friend/family member you will be sharing with. Each of you will have you’re your own single bed. You are responsible to find your roommate, we do not provide the service to match students together.

Do I have to pay for the course fee upfront in full?

Yes, the payment for the course 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.

How old do I have to be to receive the financial aid from CSN for studying at Speakeasy?

You are eligible for financial aid from CSN for our courses from July the year you turn 20. If you would like to study with us but are younger, there is another aid from CSN you can apply for. It is a grant of 3600kr/ month. You can however not take any loans until July the year you turn 20.
