State of the art teachers and courses

You’d be hard-pressed to find an older language school than Academia Guiu. Initially, the academy was founded by Manuel Guiu Casanova back in 1892. Manuel was a graduate of the sciences with an interest in language learning. Since its founding, the school has been in the same family for four generations and still is today.

    ELE, DELE, EBAU and Spanish University prep

    The selection of courses at Academia Guiu is best described as wide. First and foremost, the academy offers a huge range of ELE (Spanish as a foreign language) classes. These include courses for total beginners as well as intermediate and advanced speakers. Aside from that, they also have intensive courses whose goal is to bring learners up to a B2 (upper-intermediate level). 

    Private classes and group classes tailored to your needs

    There are also private classes available where the student can more specifically guide the class's direction and flow. As they put it, you can get a custom program tailored to your knowledge as well as your availability.

    On top of that, there are intensive courses meant to give your Spanish a big boost. The school also has summer courses and training courses for specific topics that companies can order. We weren’t kidding when we said the school offers a lot of different ELE classes.


    THE Pathway Course for EBAU

    One of the things that put Academia Guiu on the map is their Pathway courses. These are specifically for students who are trying to pass their EBAU. This is something particularly useful for anyone who went to an international high school or students with an international baccalaureate.

    Fully accredited

    Guiu has been accredited by the Instituto Cervantes, Spain’s primary institute for Spanish language education and by Siele (Servico Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española)

    Visa assistance for US citizens

    This is specifically important for those who want to stay in Spain longer to study Spanish. While US citizens can stay in Spain (as part of the European Union) for up to three months without a visa, Academia Guiu can assist with getting a visa for a longer stay with the intention of studying Spanish.
