Our way of working with the students is based on the following motto: tell me what you want, and I will give it to you, given that in Barcino School we blindly believe that every student is special, unique and irreplaceable.

Barcinno School joins to the communicative teaching, that is why the students who attend to our lessons will be able to enjoy interactive lessons in which they will be able to develop their linguistic skills in real-life situations. Nevertheless, we think that the traditional way of learning is also effective, an we do not want to leave it aside. We could say that Barcino School has adapted the best of each method and has strengthen it in order to make the learning more significant to the students. Our teachers are all Spanish natives and they have years of experience behind them. That is a fact that guarantees that the students’ learning is in hands of great professionals, therefore the quality of the lessons is ensured. The combination of our educational proposal and our excellent teachers guarantees the quality of learning provided.

Barcelona is one of the most important cities on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the second largest metropolis in Spain. A cultural, social and political landmark in the country, the city stands out for its taste for the alternative, its acute aesthetical sense, and its welcoming attitude, which results in a largely cosmopolitan population. Fittingly, Enforex Barcelona is our largest Spanish school in Spain with a capacity of 550 students, turning it into an ideal hub for socializing and making new friends from all over the world. We are located right in the middle of the city, as well, ensuring perfect communication with a wide variety of public transport lines, both in the metropolitan network (nearby tube stations include Urgell, Universitat and Rocafort) and on the bus. “L’Eixample”, the area where our Spanish school in Barcelona is located, was conceived in the 19th century as an extension of the city’s original layout, chaotically inscribed within what today is known as the Gothic quarter. Built in the highly rational and efficient shape of a grid, the area has grown to form the cultural nucleus of Barcelona, placing us within walking distance of the main points of reference in the city, from the bedlam of Las Ramblas to the precincts of the university. Make the Most of Barcelona The first step to embarking on a successful and productive stint at learning Spanish is to be in a comfortable, up-to-date environment where to feel at ease and to perform in the most efficient way. To that end, we have ample facilities in a four-storey building with gorgeous terraces, a solarium terrace and as many as 50 classrooms, where you will be able to enjoy some of the pleasures Barcelona has to offer (the pretty views, the wonderful weather) while carrying out your work. Additionally, fully equipped computer labs and a well-stocked library combined with the Wi-Fi Internet service and the nicely air conditioned rooms to complete the settings of an eminently modern language school, where the same goals as ever – learning foreign languages – are achieved quicker and more efficiently through the use of the latest technology. Furthermore, Enforex schools in Barcelona offer language classes to Spanish students seeking to learn English, French and German. Therefore, our building practically becomes a Tower of Babel where, nevertheless, a common platform is provided for mutual understanding. In this sense, you might want to sign up for free language exchanges with native Spanish speakers and practice with them what you have learned with us. Combine Business and Pleasure At the same time, Barcelona offers a unique opportunity to explore important features of Spanish culture alongside your Spanish course. For instance, walking around the city is almost as edifying as visiting a museum in most cities of Europe. Consequently, you might want to enrol on one of our combined courses and learn more about Spanish art, literature or history together with your Spanish classes. Or, similarly, you could delve into the intricacies of Spanish recipes, and learn what the true ingredients of an authentic sangria are, what are the different versions of gazpacho and how are you supposed to prepare a paella, with our combined course, Spanish and Spanish cooking. Whatever you choose to do, our Spanish school in Barcelona allow you to combine your language requirements with your personal preferences in order to ensure that you make the most of your stay in one of the most exciting places in Europe, both in terms of your formation and your entertainment. There is simply no better place to learn Spanish, so take a look inside, explore the different options we have to offer and allow yourself to be tempted. *Minimum student age: 14 years old Location *In the heart of central Barcelona, the "Eixample" district Metro stops: Rocafort, Urgel, Plaça Espanya , Universitat, Plaça Catalunya *Next to 6 different bus lines *Walking distance from Las Ramblas, the university, cultural centers and much more Facilities *A spacious, 4-story building (3,000 m2) *50 classrooms with audio-visual equipment *Teacher's meeting room *1,500 m2 of gorgeous terraces *Solarium terrace open all year round *Computer lab with free Internet access *Wi-Fi (wireless access throughout the school) *A spacious, fully-stocked, modern library *Conference room with capacity for 160 people *Wheelchair accessible elevator / lift *Air conditioning and central heating

Language Surfing is an innovative way of teaching based on ‘linguistic immersion’. It takes elements from Spanish Culture and Barcelona itself in order to accelerate the learning process. Classes are taught by native and professional trainers, and they take place mostly in urban areas of Barcelona such as art galleries, cafés, shops, museums, parks, and other places in which language is ‘alive’ and used every day. Our task is to ensure that the student, through theoretical and practical training, could explore the world of the Spanish language and the different realitiesof Barcelona. Using the city as our language lab, we practice the knowledge acquired in our theoretical classes and are constantly provided with new conversation topics and opportunities for expanding vocabulary. It is the end of boring and traditional lessons! Because we strongly believe that the best thing to do with language is to put it into practice! The most effective and dynamic way of learning a foreign language is to use it in real circumstances, with native speakers and not only stuck in the classroom! An important part of the Language Surfing work philosophy is the use of the Internet and new technologies, which provide a wide variety of opportunities to explore the language. Multimedia resources, apps, blogs, YouTube videos, social media memes, tutorials, etc. are a great chance to find out more about Spanish language and its culture.
