The GRAN CANARIA SCHOOL OF LANGUAGES offers intensive Spanish courses to foreign students since 1964.


Our Spanish courses are offered all year round in six levels and are aimed to adults who are either having their first contact with the Spanish language or to those who wish to improve their knowledge.


Our intensive Spanish courses are given in groups and in private or semiprivate lessons. Courses in Spanish for specific purposes are also available. Private tuition is also available on Skype.


At the Gran Canaria School of Languages you will find the Spanish course you need, whether general or for specific purposes, and we will introduce you to the Spanish and local culture. Our highly qualified and long experienced teachers will make your study of the Spanish language an easy fun trip. Our mild climate will pamper you on our beaches of golden sand, and the island will reveal its most beautiful sights to you. Our social and cultural activities will let you get in touch with our history, culture, art and people.


It will be an experience that we are sure you will enjoy and hope you will repeat.

Come and experience Gran Canaria with us!
