School Spanish Culture Trip to Barcelona and Costa Brava

A Spanish school trip to Barcelona and Costa Brava is always a sure-fire hit with students, thanks to the unique opportunity to enjoy a buzzing city and a relaxed coastal resort!

Most of our groups stay at one of the coastal resorts along the Costa Brava, such as Lloret de Mar, Blanes or Tossa de Mar, so that students and teachers can relax and enjoy the beaches after a busy day of sightseeing and speaking Spanish in Barcelona!

And if your students are preparing for exams, then you may be interested to learn that we can also offer Spanish lessons at a specialist language school which will be tailored to meet your specific requirements and learning objectives!
