Opened in 1986, our language school Escuela Montalbán – TANDEM Granada offers Spanish courses in Granada, which is surely one of southern Spain’s most beautiful cities. The warm and friendly atmosphere of our school and unique flair of our city will make your time in Andalusia an unforgettable experience.
The school building with its modern interior, welcoming classrooms and Andalusian patio is in a quiet residential district just ten minutes on foot from the city centre. This is where we hold all our Spanish lessons along with a wide range of cultural events. The school puts great emphasis on a personal approach and creating the right atmosphere for successful learning. A course leader works with the teachers to plan the lessons and teaching methods. All teachers are native speakers with a university degree and have a long experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Ours is a medium-sized school with around 1000 students a year and has been accredited by the Instituto Cervantes since 2002. Escuela Montalbán is also an exam centre for the internationally recognised DELE and SIELE exams in Spanish as a foreign language. Our language courses are also recognised in Germany as educational leave.
Finding the right accommodation is an essential part of a successful language holiday in Granada. Our school chooses accommodation carefully and carries out regular inspections. The school team will help you feel at home, whether you stay with a local host family, at a teacher’s house, in a shared apartment with other students or in a private hotel room or apartment. We want to meet your expectations and will guarantee you places to stay just a few minutes’ walk from the school.
Learning a new language also means immersing yourself in another culture and way of life. Escuela Montalbán – TANDEM Granada offers a daily cultural programme. This includes presentations on topical issues in Spanish society and on the Moorish history of Granada, film evenings, tapas tours, visits to the hammam, flamenco shows, guided sightseeing tours, cookery courses, excursions to the beach, hiking or horse riding in the Sierra Nevada, and weekend trips to Morocco, Cordoba, Ronda, Sevilla, the Alpujarras or the Costa Tropical.

Granada, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada and at the heart of Andalusia’s Moorish history, is one of Spain’s most beautiful cities. Its transformation from a small unimportant settlement began with the conquest by the Moors in 711. The city was fortified and extensive irrigation systems installed. With the dissolution of the Emirate of Córdoba in 1031, Granada became an independent kingdom. Under the rule of the Nasrid dynasty, Granada blossomed culturally and economically. The city fell in 1492 as the last bastion of the Moors. King Boabdil surrendered it without a fight to the Catholic Monarchs Isabella and Ferdinand II. Granada is an important university city with over 60,000 students and surely one of the most beautiful places in southern Spain. With a large cultural offering, the world-famous Alhambra and a vibrant nightlife, it is the ideal destination for a language study trip. An afternoon on the nearby Mediterranean beaches, winter sports in the Sierra Nevada, flamenco in the Romani district of Sacromonte, salsa dancing in the countless bars, a visit to the hammam or a stroll along the winding alleyways of the historic Albaicín: Granada offers countless sport and leisure options.
