The first time you walk under the twin stone archways that lead into our Spanish school in Salamanca, you’ll feel the sense of wonder and inspiration that comes with being in a space built so many lifetimes ago. The interior of the 16th-century building has been completely modernized, but parts of the ancient stone walls have been purposefully left exposed, putting our students in direct contact with hundreds of years of Spanish history. The classrooms are structured in a circle around the central patio, where students can step outside for a breath of fresh air between classes. We also have a cafeteria where you can taste the delicious local cuisine as you practice your Spanish and socialize with other students.

Make the most of your time in Spain’s best known university town by taking one of our Spanish courses in Salamanca. If you want to dedicate most of your time here to learning and improving your Spanish, our intensive programs are your best bet. On the other hand, if you’re looking to prepare to certify your language level, the Spanish classes in Salamanca that best fit your profile are our DELE exam preparation packages. At don Quijote we have Spanish lessons for every taste, so you have a wide variety of specialized courses to choose from: private one-to-one or semi-private Spanish classes, programs for people in your age group, courses during your Winter Break, or whatever you need!

    Our Intensive 20 Spanish program consists of 20 weekly classes and is perfect for students who are eager to learn Spanish in a short period of time without sacrificing the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the local culture. Our experienced teachers focus on student participation and interaction by using real-life situations and topics to increase students’ ability to develop authentic language skills that are useful in the real world.

    Students who pursue the Intensive 20 Spanish Program are looking for a flexible program that allows them to experience a full linguistic immersion by giving them extra time to explore the city and culture.
    Some students also like the added flexibility the reduced class hours give them because they can mold the program to their own needs by adding private classes or an internship program. Students particularly value having time to experience the culture and language both in and out of the classroom.
    The students who prefer the Intensive 20 course are looking for a dynamic and interactive Spanish course with flexibility. There are 20 classes a week with a lot of free time for those who want to visit the city and discover new places.

    This program includes 20 weekly group classes which generally take place in the morning in small group classes with a maximum of 10 students and an average of 6 students. The classes are focused on oral expression and comprehension, as well as written communication and interaction, all of which are essential in learning a new language.
    You will be placed in your correct Spanish level following an oral and written placement test that you will take the first day you arrive at the school. We start every level every Monday. At the end of the program you will be handed a certificate documenting your progress, hours completed, and level of proficiency achieved.
    This program is offered in all locations in all don Quijote schools in Spain and most of our destinations in Latin America.

    Student Residence

    One of the best ways to enjoy a stay in another country is to reside in a student residence: you will meet classmates in the same circumstances as you, with whom to form study groups, resolve your doubts, organize outings or, simply, have fun in your spare time without having to leave the house.

    The Dorm

    If you think having an international roommate is a great way to open your mind and see the world from a different perspective, imagine how much you’ll learn in the dorm! Each mix-gender room sleeps up to 4 people, so you’ll always have someone to study or explore the neighborhood with.
    Our dorms are easy on the wallet so you can prioritize travel and focus on experiencing everything your destination has to offer while still having a cozy place to call home.
    The facilities are located near the school to minimize your commute and maximize your free time. The neighborhood is full of cafés, bars, restaurants, and picturesque city squares where you can live the Spanish lifestyle and practice your new language skills.
