Arrival and First Day

You will enter the school and be greeted by a professional team of highly trained teachers and a passionate international staff who are excited to bring the students together and bond over Spanish learning. We know the first day can be nerve-wracking, so here is an idea of what you can expect:

Placement Tests

You will take a Spanish written test prior to arrival and oral one on the first day at the school. This test allows for the assessment of Spanish knowledge and appropriate placement with students of the same level.

Welcome Packs

You will receive a welcome pack on the first day at Expanish which includes tourist information about Barcelona, class information, and a student benefit card (used for our discount program).

New Student Orientation

On the first day of classes, Expanish staff will provide all new students with more information about the weekly activities. You can also look forward to a Welcome drink hosted by Expanish Partner School for a chance to socialize with new students.

What to Bring

Students should bring school supplies like a pen and paper for notes. We will be providing course materials and a welcome pack on your first day.
