Spanish Study Holidays

Welcome to Spanish Study Holidays and to the world of Spanish language travel. We specialise in Spanish courses in Spain and Latin America. Our schools provide high-quality courses of 1-week to 40 weeks for students of all ages and levels. Whatever your needs or interests, we are confident that we will have a Spanish course to suit you.

Our Spanish Courses

You can learn Spanish in Spain or Latin America.

These are our most popular Spanish courses:

  • Semi-Intensive (10 to 15 lessons/week)
    The most economic option, because it is only a few hours a week. Only available in a few locations.
  • Intensive (20 lessons week)
    The best choice for most students. 20 lessons per week is the right number of lessons to help you to make lots of progress with your Spanish, whilst also leaving you plenty of free time.
  • Super-Intensive (25 to 30 lessons/week)
    A good choice if you want to learn as much Spanish as possible, in a short period of time.

These courses are offered at all levels. You can normally choose to do the course for just 1 week, or for as many weeks as you like. Naturally, the longer you can attend a course, the more Spanish you will learn. The most popular durations are 2 to 4 weeks. All the tutors at our schools are native Spanish speakers, with a university degree and special training in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.

We also offer special interest courses:

  • Spanish and Salsa
  • Spanish and Surfing
  • Spanish for Exam Preparation


Shared apartment
Sharing a fully-equipped self-catering apartment with other students. This is usually the cheapest type of accommodation and is especially popular with students of 18 to 28 years.

Host Family
Living with a local host family. This provides total immersion in the language and is the best option if you want to learn as much Spanish as possible in the time available to you. You can choose between half board ( 2 meals a day - breakfast and one other meal) and full board (3 meals a day - breakfast and 2 other meals).

Student Residence
These residences offer room only, half board and full board. They do not normally offer cooking facilities. Student residences are a good choice if you want to have your meals provided, but do not want to live with a host family.

On-site Residences
These residences are located in the same location as the school. They offer room only, half board and full board.They are a good choice if you want high standard accommodation, and do not want to travel to school each day.

Studio apartments
These are private mini-apartments, fully self-contained, with cooking facilities and private bathroom. They offer a good standard of accommodation and are suitable for one person, or for 2 people travelling together. Studio apartments are normally the most expensive type of accommodation.


To help you find a suitable course , we ask you to give us an approximate indication of your current level of Spanish, as some courses are only offered at certain levels. However, our Semi-Intensive, Intensive and Super-Intensive courses are offered at all levels. You will have a level test on your arrival at the school, to ensure that you are placed in a class which is of exactly the right level for you.
