We loved our classes at Expanish! It was one of the highlights of our trip to be able to refine our Spanish skills while being in Spain. I took private lessons with my 3 kids. The teachers and staff were all so kind. They were very understanding when we were running late too!

Absolutely satisfied. I did my course with Expanish, which is accepted as "Bildungsurlaub" in Germany. Everything was well organized. During the course, I
learned in short time a lot and received valuable recommendations.
Expanish is absolutely recommendable for everyone that wants to learn or improve their Spanish.

Stayed for 9 weeks, it was great. My friend and I were in a host family together and they were amazing. The school itself was really fun and my Spanish improved a lot. It's also a great social experience. Super easy to make friends from loads of different countries at the school.

Study AbroadThe Importance of Inclusive Language Learning

We believe strongly that cultural immersion overseas is the most effective and memorable way to learn a second language. Not only that, it offers students the chance to explore different cultures, traditions and ideas while connecting with like-minded people from all walks of life. Such a potentially life-changing opportunity should be made available to as many people as possible, which is why inclusion and accessibility are so important.

Living AbroadHow to be a Digital Nomad in Spain

The concept of remote work is nothing new, but most didn’t really consider it as a real possibility before the pandemic. Now more people than ever are embracing the idea of leaving the office to become a digital nomad, many motivated by the freedom to work from overseas.
