Spanish is one of the world’s most-spoken languages.

With over 538 million people speaking it as a first or second language, Spanish can help you communicate all around the world. Colonial history has made Spanish the most spoken first language in the Americas. Its role as an official language in many international organisations also makes it a true world language.

Group programmes

When you're young, you learn particularly easily and quickly – that's a well-known fact. Dynamically designed lessons, new friends from all over the world and exciting activities make learning great fun. The Spanish TANDEM schools offer special tailor-made programmes for school classes or adult groups. The programmes usually include a Spanish course, an extensive cultural programme, local accommodation and various other services. Teachers planning a longer school trip can also split the course between two locations.

Teacher training

Our advanced teacher training is aimed at non-native speakers who teach Spanish as a foreign language and who want to refresh and improve their own language skills while also picking up new teaching methods and approaches. Immersing yourself in the host country’s culture will give you plenty of inspiration for your Spanish lessons back home. Teachers from EU member states, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Macedonia and Turkey can apply for Erasmus+ funding for their training courses. Scholarships for teachers who work in public-sector schools and adult education promote individual mobility. They cover most of the course fees as well as travel and accommodation costs.
