Spanish Immersion in the Classroom and at Home

At Expanish we offer a uniquely international experience as our students come from diverse age groups, cultures and countries. Students enjoy the diversity of the classroom make up while learning Spanish language and gaining local cultural experience from local teachers.

Our award-winning Spanish Language School in Barcelona is located on Rua de Pau Claris, minutes away from la Sagrada Familia and just 20 minutes walk to Barcelona’s lovely beach.  The school is located close to many modes of public transportation, allowing students to comfortably travel throughout the city. Studying at Expanish offers the perfect opportunity for students to take advantage of afternoons to visit attractions, while at the same time, meeting locals and continuously practicing their Spanish. The Expanish Study Abroad staff will be their on-site support staff during your time abroad!

Expanish highly recommends that students stay at homestays during their time abroad to maximize their immersion experience. The homestay experience in Barcelona allows students a first-hand experience to be a part of everyday life and share in traditions, customs, and habits with their hosts. Homestay in Barcelona will allow students to consistently practice their Spanish, enabling them to learn the language quickly. Students will share breakfast and dinner with their host family, giving them numerous opportunities to practice!

While we certainly recommend that all students opt for homestays, we recognize that they are not for everyone. Expanish also provides student shared apartments. All apartments in Barcelona have comfortable furniture that allows students to sit down and chat with their peers about what they have learned at Expanish. Students can use communal spaces, such as the living room, dining, kitchen, etc. A shared apartment for students in Barcelona is ideal for those who are looking for affordable housing and a social and cultural experience in Spain. By living with other students they gain the chance to chat about their experiences, get to learn their opinion and maybe even make some new friends along the way.
