As they say on their webpage: Many things have happened since 1991 when a small group of teachers decided to get together at International House Barcelona to exchange experiences in a newly developing professional environment: Spanish has made great advances everywhere, we have all learned a lot, Spanish as a Foreign Language has become a dynamic speciality with amazing professionals and research has been consolidated.

Happy anniversary!
