These courses are for students who want to intensify and personalise their Spanish learning experience. They mix the personal attention of private lessons with the lively dynamic and international vibe of group lessons.
Small-group lessons provide opportunity to converse with other students and learn in a fun, stimulating environment. You can decide the subject for the individual classes. For example, you may choose to emphasise Spanish use in a business or medical environment. Or you can choose to focus on grammar, fluency, or any area in which you are weaker.
As the individual classes are adjusted to your wishes and capacity, following this course will make you learn Spanish faster. Most classes generally take place in the morning. Depending on the season and destination, classes can also be in the afternoon.

Every Monday of the year, except for absolute beginners
Intensive 20 + 5
Level: For all levels
Supplement the Spanish Intensive 20 with 5 private lessons a week. This means 1 extra private lesson per day, Monday to Friday. The private lessons are usually scheduled right before or right after your group lessons.
This course is perfect if there is a subject you want to especially focus on, such as Spanish use in a business or medical environment, fluency, or some grammar issues you might find more challenging.
This is one of the most intensive courses and leads to rapid improvements. In addition to the Spanish Intensive 20 you have 10 private lessons in the week. This means 2 extra private lessons per day, Monday to Friday. These private lessons are usually scheduled right before or right after your group lessons.
This course is perfect if you want to learn Spanish quickly, especially if there is a specific reason you are learning Spanish; such as business, medical, or professional reasons. While group lessons provide a backbone to your learning, private lessons focus on what’s most important to you. If you have limited time available and want to make the most out of your stay, this is your course.
Intensive 30 + 5
In terms of intensity, this course is similar to the Intensive 20+10 combination course. There are 7 lessons per day, with 6 group lessons followed or preceded by 1 private lesson. Monday to Friday.
The private lessons are very useful for working on any of your weaker areas, so you develop a more rounded Spanish proficiency. For example, you may benefit from individualized support around grammar, fluency, or writing. These private lessons can also focus on subjects not usually covered in group lessons, such as medical or business Spanish.
All courses begin on a Monday and end on a Friday. Starting in the middle of the week is not possible. Most courses start any Monday of the year. If Monday is a holiday and the school is closed, the course will start on a Tuesday. There are fixed start dates for absolute beginners and for some special courses, such as exam preparation courses or extensive evening courses. Customised individual classes can start on different weekdays.
At what time does the first class start?
The exact start time will be written on your personal page, no later than 5 days before the start of your course. Depending on the destination, this can be somewhere between 7:30 and 9:00h, but can also be in the afternoon.
What happens if there are no students with the same level as I have?
As Spanish language specialists, all Linguaschools schools have a fair amount of students of different levels, all year round. This means we are always able to form groups of students of the same level. In the exceptional case that you are the only student in your level range, you will receive a reduced number of private lessons instead.
What is the course timetable?
In general, group classes take place in the mornings between 9:00 and 14:00 and in the afternoons between 14:00 and 19:00. Timetables vary per destination and might be subject to change during peak times.
I think the level of my group is too high or too low. What can I do?
First contact the secretary of the school if you think you are in a group learning at the wrong level for you. They will discuss this with your teacher or the head teacher and inform you of the possibilities to transfer you to another group.
Who are my class mates?
The age, nationality and background of Linguaschools students is very diverse. Whether you are a university student or haven't studied for the last 20 years, the schools’ atmospheres makes you feel at home immediately. From July to September in Spain, there is a higher proportion of relatively younger people (students), then during the rest of the year. Our students are from all over the world. This varies a little per destination, so if you want to know more exact, check out the statistics provided on the page of each destination.
Do I get a certificate?
Yes, on the last day of your course you will receive a certificate indicating the time spent at the school, the number of lessons attended and the level achieved. Attendance of at least 80% is necessary to obtain such a certificate.
