Gap Year in Spain

Through a gap year in Spain, you can learn a new language and culture, as well as making lots of new friends from all over the world!

Would you like to sign-up to one of our courses and have a year of studying and travelling?

For young people learning a new language can be a very rewarding experience that broadens your horizons and strengthens your CV. Moreover, Spanish is the second most spoken first language in the world!

Having Spanish as a linguistic skill, you could open the door to working in Spain and the vast majority of Latin America; a region which is developing rapidly economically.

We offer Spanish courses for all levels. If you have studied Spanish for a few years, or have done a few modules whilst at University or you are a complete beginner, we provide classes designed specifically for you. Moreover, we provide courses all over Spain, including in Bilbao, Barcelona, Madrid, Santander, Valencia and more.

Apart from learning Spanish, what can I do with my Gap Year in Spain?

In Spain there is a wealth of opportunities to travel, work and assimilate new skills. We offer work experiences with businesses in many fields such as hospitality, education, marketing, administration, translation and more. Furthermore, you can participate in a variety of volunteering schemes with social work, education, tourism and the environment.
In addition, there are many activities that you can take part in alongside a Spanish course. For example, you can take-up a culinary arts course and broaden your knowledge of Spanish cuisine in a friendly environment with one of our bilingual chefs. Also, surfing courses are very popular between April and October. In the Basque Country you can find the best left-hand waves in the world. Furthermore, you can expand your knowledge of Spanish culture and have fun with wine tasting or flamenco courses all year round.

All experiences must be a minimum of 1 month in duration.
