Spanish in Spain with IH Spain

IH Spain

For those on a study abroad year, as well as for anyone interested in a shorter stay, IH Spain’s “Spanish in Spain” study tour allows you to try different combinations of cities and courses, taking advantage of our seven centres to travel round Spain while you study Spanish.

Your trip could, for example, take in several cities in the south of Spain, or you might want to spend time in cities that will offer you interesting contrasts – such as Barcelona and Madrid, Barcelona and San Sebastian or the contrast between the north and south of Spain, between San Sebastian and one or more of our centres in Andalusia, to take just some of the possibilities.

With seven different Spanish cities to choose from, there are lots of different combinations to choose from.

Prices given below are for 20 Spanish lessons per week on intensive courses at any of our seven schools.

Prices

For a minimum two-week stay at two or more IH Spain schools, we offer a special course prices, to which a single €50 registration fee should be added.

Short stays (1 to 12 weeks)
Barcelona and Madrid: €175
Our other schools: €165

Long stays (13 or more weeks)

While there are thus standard fees for your Spanish course, note that accommodation fees vary according to the type of accommodation you choose and the time of year, as well as according to which centres you choose.
