No matter your true desire for learning Spanish abroad, we’ve got some reasons you should consider as well:
Reasons to study Spanish abroad in Barcelona
- The beaches – This metropolitan city rests along the Mediterranean Sea. Don’t be afraid to travel up and down the coast to see cute little villages and beach towns too!
- The weather – The weather is beautiful! Just be sure if you’re coming in August to find a place with air conditioning! TIP: The best weather usually happens between May and the end of July.
- Culture – Barcelona has been inhabited since 5000 BC, therefore there’s TONS of history to learn about in this magical city. Not to mention it’s architecture
- Food – The Mediterranean diet is one of the best and healthiest in the world. But when you add TAPAS culture into the mix, you’ve got a bite of everything (literally).
- Nightlife – After your afternoon siesta and late night dinner between 9-11pm, the city knows how to PARTY! You can find travelers, expats, and locals at beachfront clubs, in cannabis clubs, bars and more.
- The mountains – If you’re someone who enjoys nature and hiking, reap the benefits of the Spanish outdoors.
- Things to do – There are countless things to do in Barca, from museums to parks, to the markets, to the clubs, to the beach, to the churches. You won’t find a boring day if you know how to do BCN the right way!
- Work/life balance – If you’re someone who needs a nap in the middle of your day, after studying, before going out to a club at night, Barca understands. A “siesta” in the middle of the day is not only encouraged but a norm. You will hardly find local stores even open between the hours of 3-5pm. They’re all about taking rests, form everything!
- Affordable – Compared to other main European cities or the United States, Spain is very affordable!
- Music – Flamenco anyone? There are tons of joints to catch moving live music. To be honest, even the street musicians in the streets and parks are some of the best we’ve seen anywhere on earth.
- Food – You can treat yourself to sweet and savory at one of our favorite places, Las Ramblas Market. Just a couple of Euro will get you fresh fruit, smoothies, juices, a bag of delicious nuts, a bowl of paella, shrimp, cheeses, and so much more.
- Location – In Barce you’re located perfectly in Europe to set off for spending your weekends in other countries. TIP: Check out airlines like Easyjet and Ryanair to score cheap flights departing from Spain.
You don’t have to be a party animal and stay up late to enjoy Barcelona’s energy. Find it in the world-renowned and famous architecture, the treasure of humans from all over the world, and enriching culture. It’s the perfect city to have an experience of a lifetime in, and the food, new friends and art are just waiting for your arrival!
