Program Dynamics

First, Expanish sends the Bildungsurlaub accreditation to the employer or the student in Germany. Once the request to study the language has been approved by the employer, the student can book the course with Expanish! Students must reserve the Intensive Spanish 30 course in order for the accreditation to be valid.

Next, after the course has finished, the student receives a certificate detailing the level of Spanish achieved, course taken, and the dates of the course. When you return to Germany, you will be able to show the credential to your employer.

If you are interested in Bildungsurlaub in Barcelona, it is required that you participate in the Intensive Spanish 30 program. This program takes place Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 1:30pm, followed by a second session from 2:30pm to 4:30pm or 11:30am to 1:30pm and 2:30pm to 6:30pm. In order to significantly improve your Spanish, this is the most effective course.

More About the Bildungsurlaub Accreditation

The German government provides funding for the Bildungsurlaub program, which permits employees to receive extra vacation days if they will be taking professional development classes, such as Spanish Language courses. Our Intensive Spanish 30 program (link) for five or ten days at Expanish is recognized by the Bildungsurlaub program. This means you can use your holiday to meet new people from different parts of the world, learn Spanish in Spain or Argentina, and join us for activities such as exploring the beautiful city.
