The School

Learn Spanish, Meet People 
and Enjoy the City!

Since opening our doors to overseas students in 2001, our goal has always been for students to learn in a pleasant, fun and effective way – Barcelona makes this an ideal environment.

We also want you to have a really positive and fulfilling personal experience while living in Barcelona.

Our school’s ethos and size allows us to attend to you personally and help you with your requirements.

Our team is pleased to help you with information for sightseeing, visas, jobs or anything to enhance your stay while you are with us.

Our teachers are native speakers, university educated and trained to teach Spanish as a foreign language through courses and seminars.

We mainly work with Aula and El Ventilador Books by Difusion Publishing but we also use other books and our own material made by our teachers with the support of our Spanish Dept. Coordinators and our Studies Director.

We also use ICT Technologies for teaching, so our teachers can use Smart Phones, Tablets, Netbooks, TV´s, Projectors or Interactive Monitors in the Classroom.

Students work in small classes – 8 on average but a maximum of 12. This allows the teacher to dedicate more time to our students’ learning needs.

The school enjoys an international atmosphere, welcoming more than 100 nationalities and making cultural exchange easy between our students.

At Kingsbrook, you get free use of computers in our Lab Coffe Area as well as free Wi-Fi connection in every area of the school.

We also have additional material such as of grammar exercises, vocabulary, listening and DELE preparation if you want to continue studying after your classes.

We opened in 2001 with 7 classrooms, and have since expanded with a total of 14 classrooms. Our classrooms are climate-controlled with air conditioned, funs and heating.

We have a study room where you can work comfortably after your classes. Here, regularly, our teaching staff give free review lessons for students who might need a help.
