IH Barcelona founded in 1972 is located right in the center of Barcelona. It is a major center for language teaching (Spanish for foreigners and English for local students), teacher training, study tours and related activities. We have friendly, qualified and motivated teachers who will help students achieve their language goals through our dynamic and immersive lessons in a relaxed and friendly environment. They will also be able to keep practicing Spanish and make friends on our social program of activities after class.
The main objective of most of our Spanish courses is to improve the students' communicative skills. The emphasis of classroom activities is therefore the development of the students' abilities to speak and understand spoken Spanish. For this reason, classes are conducted entirely in Spanish and students are given plenty of opportunity to practise the sort of language they are likely to need outside the classroom. We don't just want our students to "know" Spanish, we want them to be able to use it! Due attention is also paid to grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing skills, and a wide variety of materials is used, including published materials from many different sources as well as materials which have been written by our own teachers. The teaching and the course programme are carefully supervised by the Director of Studies, who is also responsible for ensuring that students are placed in the appropriate level and that their progress is satisfactory. While the atmosphere in the classroom is generally relaxed and informal, students should be prepared to work hard and participate fully.All teachers are native speakers: SiAccreditations or memberships:
