How we create the points regarding what we like/dislike about a school

Location: Situated in the heart of the Eixample district of Barcelona near the Entença and Sants Estació Metro stations, Don Quijote Barcelona offers students a real look into the city life, slightly outside of the hustle and bustle of Barcelona's touristic sights. The school is large, offering students many facilities such as a library and media centre, an outdoor patio with picnic tables, a garden and a terrace, indoor common areas with a comfy lounge, along with free activities and optional excursions.

Course selection: The school offers a great variety of courses suitable for a wide range of students. Whether you are looking for a General Spanish Course, DELE or SIELE exam preparation courses, a Business course or a fully immersive Junior course, Don Quijote Barcelona would be happy to have you on-board to study with them. GAP year programmes are also available for students looking to stay for longer durations of study.

City: Barcelona is a city like no other, its personality is seen on every street corner as well as in the beauty and works of artists that have travelled through its streets. The second-largest city in the Iberian Peninsula in both size and population, the city provides Don Quijote with an excellent base for their students to create lasting and funfilled memories. As mentioned, exploring Barcelona is a great experience in itself, Don Quijote Barcelona can help you make that experience as memorable and productive as possible.
  • The language school Don Quijote was founded in Barcelona, Spain in 1992.
