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.

Learn Spanish inside and outside of the classroom in one of the most vibrant cities in the world

Sophia Snezhynska Speakeasy, March 2021

It's a great experience, a chance to meet many interesting people, see new places and speak a new language. 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, and you speak Spanish!

Frequently asked questions

  • 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.

  • Yes! We have a range of ages at Speakeasy BCN so you will never feel out of place, whether you’ve just finished school or have decades of work experience. The average age of a student at Speakeasy BCN is 28.

  • 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.

  • Yes, you can apply for a Spain student visa after arriving in Spain. However you must submit your application when you have at least 30 days of legal residence remaining (e.g. on your tourist visa or short-stay Schengen visa). You can see a list of countries which need the Schengen visa before visiting Spain below.


  • Yes, you can bring your family with you on a Spain student visa.

    The family members who may accompany you include:

    • Your spouse or unmarried partner

    • Children who are minors or who have a disability

    In most cases, the student needs to get the student visa first and then the spouse can apply to accompany the student. But please note – each consulate has its own application requirements. We recommend you contact your nearest Spanish embassy or consulate for more information.
