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 Immersive Spanish program, you’ll study 10 hours of general Spanish each week and complement these with 10 hours of Spanish cultural activities and workshops. Our Spanish immersion workshops take a more hands-on approach including interactive games, tours of Barcelona neighborhoods, Spanish tutoring, learning about current events, popular culture, history and more! Each week you’ll have a variety of topics to choose from.
General Spanish classes are held 2 hours each day, Monday through Friday, in the afternoon from 13.30h – 15.30h followed by Spanish Immersion workshops from 15.30h – 17.30h. In your general Spanish classes, you will cover all aspects of Spanish language learning each day: speaking, reading, writing, and listening. Afterwards, you’ll have the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned beyond the books and classroom.
From A1 to A2.1 levels your general Spanish course will be supplemented with the Spanish workshops described above (12 weeks), once you reach the A2.2 level, your general Spanish course will be supplemented with Conversation and Business classes.
This program is intended for those who would like to learn the practicalities of Spanish language learning while immersing themselves in all aspects of the Spanish language and culture. You’ll have the opportunity to absorb the key language skills that will make a difference to your ability to communicate in Spanish with ease.

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 started this program in November of 2020 and have been enrolled for 16 weeks. The amount I’ve progressed is tremendous. One of the main reasons I’ve advanced so far in my ability to speak, listen and write is due to the phenomenal teachers at this school. I had 4 different teachers with their own unique styles. I can say that every single one was amazing and pushed me to get to the point where I am now. Thanks to Olga, Marta, Verónica and Joan, I can now confidently say I speak Spanish and navigate myself through Spain without so much fear of having to communicate. I have met many students from other language schools who switched to Speakeasy and all of them have told me this school is the best Spanish learning school they’ve gone to due to the amazing professors. I highly recommend you take classes here!
