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, Spanish tutoring to review what you've learned in class, pronunciation, workshops 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 either from 13:30h – 15:30h or 17:30h - 19:30h. Complimentary Spanish Immersion workshops are held from 15:30h – 17:30h each day. In your general Spanish classes, you will cover all aspects of Spanish language learning each day: speaking, reading, writing, and listening. Then, 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.

Kara Danielle Avanceña Speakeasy, November 2023

I’ve loved my experience. It was such a welcoming place from the second I walked in. My teacher is so wonderful and cares about making sure we understand the material. The weekly trips, with bimonthly ones outside the city, have made it so easy to make friends in a place I just moved to. The team was also very responsive when I was emailing months ago with questions. Would happily recommend Speakeasy to anyone looking to learn Spanish and meet new people in Barcelona!

  • 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:

    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.
