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.
I studied Spanish for 3 months at Speakeasy. I loved it. The professionalism of the teachers and atmosphere of the classes and the school. There are also projectors in the classes that make the way of teaching very interesting and more comfortable. In addition, the receptionists are friendly and always help you. And of course many thanks to my favorite teacher Verónica. For me she was the best. All the classes were always very interesting and fun, we talked, we played. She explains the grammar perfectly. I will definitely return to improve my level of Spanish. I recommend everyone to this school in Barcelona!
- Do I have to pay before the course starts?
You must pay in advance for the weeks you would like to reserve your spot in. The number of weeks you book is entirely up to you.
- Can I do a trial class?
We do not offer trial classes due to class planning and organization. You can, however, enrol in one week of class to see if it is the right fit for you and then prolong your booking if you choose to do so. If the level or type of course doesn’t suit you, we are always happy to switch you to a higher or lower level or different timetable.
- How long does it take to complete one level?
To finish one mini-level in our intensive course it takes two weeks and to finish an entire level it takes four weeks. Check out our course progression chart where you can compare how long it takes to complete each level for each type of Spanish course.
