Granada is 680m above sea level and has a continental climate; there is a lot of difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures, so you will almost always need summer and winter clothes. In winter, the temperature can range from 0 to 20 degrees and in summer they can rise as high as 38 or 40 degrees, although it usually cools at night to around 18 and 22ºC.
Our students come from all over the world and we have many different nationalities: English, French, Dutch, German, Scandinavian, American, Canadian, Japanese, etc.
Our students must be over 18. The majority are between 20 and 40 years old although there is no age limit.
At the weekends, we offer excursions to other places in Andalucía (Córdoba, Sevilla, the Alpujarras, etc.) with specialized personnel.
Granada is in the South of Spain, in Southeastern Andalusia, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains and one hour away from the Tropical Coast.
Most flights arrive at Malaga and there is an hourly bus service to Granada. There is also an airport in Granada. We offer a transfer service from Málaga or Granada airport to the centre.
The transfer is a private taxi service organised by the school to collect you from the airport and take you to your accommodation in Granada. The price quoted is one way.
As there is restricted access to the historic Albaicín quarter where the school and accommodation is, we advise you to leave your car in a car park in the centre. However, through the booking form you can also book a parking place close to the school for 13 € per day
The results of the level test are normally quite accurate. However, if you think you are not in the right level, the teachers and academic director will help you find the right level for you.
Once you finish your course, you can ask for an attendance certificate, which states the type of course and the number of hours you have completed. If you do a Three-Month course with us you will also receive a certificate of knowledge.
Yes, we have a one-to-one course, which consists of one private class a day. You can also do fewer classes a week, but this cannot be booked in advance. This can be organised once the student is at the school according to the availability of rooms and teachers.
The Spanish classes take place in the morning from 10:00 to 13:30h. and the Spanish Culture, DELE Preparation, ELE Teacher Training and Hispanic Literature courses are just after 13:45h.
The maximum number of students in a Spanish class is 8, although the average number is 5.
You can make your own à la carte course combination! – timetables and level permitting.
Yes, as long as places are available both in the accommodation and on the course that you want to do. It is therefore a good idea to let us know as soon as possible.
No, if you have never studied Spanish before it is not necessary. But if you have any previous knowledge, however basic, it is necessary to do one.
The classes take place in the afternoon, between 13:45 and 18:45h.
You need some Flamenco shoes or at least some shoes with a thick, stable heel as well as some comfortable clothes which allow any kind of movement.
Yes, in the School we have a small flamenco shop with shoes and skirts. If we don’t have what you are looking for, we will show you several places where you can buy flamenco shoes and outfits.
Our accommodation is in the Albaicín (historic quarter) and very close to the school. The family accommodation, however, can be a little further away.
No, meals are not included (except in family accommodation), but the flats are fully equipped with cooking facilities.
Yes, all the flats have some type of heating: gas heaters, electric radiators, central heating, etc.
This type of accommodation is a double room with twin beds which you share with another student. If you need accommodation for two people in the same room because you are coming with another person, you should mention this when you enrol.
The price of the double room is calculated per person and it is necessary to book two places if two people are going to come. The price of the apartment does not change if there are one or two people.
