All of our homestays are located in the best neighborhoods of the city and always within 25 minutes of the Expanish school, but many of them are much closer than 25 minutes as that is the maximum commute.
Barcelona is a very large city, so it is common for students to take public transportation (subway or bus) to get to the school each day, just like the locals do.
In the shared apartments the single rooms can have a single or double bed (standard single rooms or big single rooms) and can also have private facilities (limited availability). This is a great, affordable option for those who want to see Spanish culture but need a more independent option, as this accommodation does not include meals. The room has adequate furniture to allow the student to study. If not, students can use an alternative space, such as the living room.
In the host families single rooms have usually a single bed. Students will have their own set of keys and will be able to enjoy a home-style experience without losing their independence.
The family will change the bed linen and towels and will clean the room once a week, plus
the family will prepare breakfast or breakfast and dinner. It is a great opportunity to experience the culture and rapidly progress in Spanish.
