Travelling can be an inexhaustible source of learning opportunities. The closer you get to the local culture, the closer you are to authentic and enriching experiences. To allow this to happen, we must not allow a language barrier to stand between us and these amazing people and experiences.
We invite you to come and enjoy our week-long Spanish language and culture course. With more than 35 years of experience, Celei is one of the first language schools in Granada, but that doesn’t stop us from maintaining a fast, fun and dynamic pace in language learning.
We will focus on oral communication, so that you make the most of your stay in Granada, and we will learn the language by studying different aspects of Spanish culture. Our classes are based on a beautiful historic Carmen (traditional house with garden) in the center of the historic Albayzin district, but we will take them constantly outside to immerse themselves in the culture and the local community.
This course is taught by our teachers, who combine experience with experience learning for a fun and enriching class. The language level can be adapted to the needs of the group from A1 to B2 but always focusing on the conversation.
