We offer a proven method to acquire in-depth knowledge of the Spanish language, literature and culture. In addition to regular classes, our program of cultural activities and the direct contact with Spanish people are ideal ways to attain this objective. The faculty is composed of highly qualified professors from Spanish Universities, and most US educational institutions accept credits for our courses. The Institute is proud of having had over 20,000 satisfied students since 1950. Many American colleges and universities have sponsored our Institute and entrusted us with their students.


Personal Attention


At the Institute, our students come first. The small classes and individual attention paid to each student allow very close interaction between students and teachers. As a result, most students talk about the feeling of being in a large family, where their personal needs are addressed.




The best place to learn Spanish is unquestionably the country of origin. To be in Spain is to have access to its rich history and culture, to be studied and enjoyed in depth through its monuments and landscapes. Spain's location and its integration with Europe are perfect for students to travel to other countries during weekends or vacation, using excellent means of transportation by bus, train or airplane. The Institute of Spanish Studies is located in the university area of Valencia, in a residential area near “Los Viveros,” the largest park in the city. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from the school to the historical downtown area.


Don’t just study Spanish, STUDY SPAIN!!
