“When in Rome, do as the Romans do…”
So when you’re in Barcelona, you might as well stay in one of our shared apartments or host families. We know it is important to have a safe, comfortable accommodation when you go abroad to study Spanish. That is why we carefully visit and select all shared apartments and host families we offer to our students and make sure they meet the basic requirements. With most of them we have been working for many years. All shared apartments are within 30 minutes walking distance from the school while the host families are within 30 minutes travel distance, so by public transport and/or on foot.

With this option you will be living with other foreign students sharing common areas of the flat like the dining room, kitchen, and bathroom. You will have a private room at your disposal, and be free to live your daily life as you please, with consideration for the roommates and neighbors of course. High speed wireless Internet is included and the common areas will be cleaned once a week.
All shared apartments are within a 30 minutes walking distance from the school. Standard single rooms have a single bed while the big single rooms have a bigger- or double bed for single use.
Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels. Reservations for double rooms can only be made for students booking together.

In a family stay you will practice your Spanish while learning how Spanish families live by taking part in their daily life. Having your own room and keys, students will enjoy this home-style experience yet still have the comforts of independence. But it must be understood that each student must adhere to the rules and customs of their Spanish family. Please mind that a family is not always the typical family, but can also consist of a divorced woman (with or without children) for example.
All host families are within a 30 minutes travel distance from the school, so this can be walking and/or public transport.
The host family option with half board includes breakfast and dinner while the breakfast option includes breakfast only. Full board means breakfast, lunch and dinner is included. Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels. Reservations for double rooms can only be made for students booking together.
