Course programme

Our Discover Granada through Spanish programme combines language teaching with activities that will help you to discover Spain’s rich cultural heritage as well as the things that make the Spanish lifestyle special. It consists of three Spanish lessons per day from Monday to Friday (a total of 15 classes per week), along with afternoon and weekend activities.

It doesn't matter if you are new to Spanish and want to learn some useful phrases for everyday situations or you have studied the language before. We cater to students of all levels of Spanish (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2). See our levels page for more information about levels.


15 Spanish classes per week, consisting of three 45-minute sessions per day:

  • two sessions on the fundamentals of the Spanish language
  • one session on Spanish culture (art, food and drink, festivals, music, history etc.)


  • Reception and welcome drink
  • At least four afternoon activities per week. These may include guided tours of monuments, walking tours, tapas, cooking, flamenco etc.
  • A full-day weekend excursion (lunch not included in the price)

Extra activities

We will also be delighted to book optional extra activities on your behalf. Examples include the Alhambra, the Hammam Arab baths, skiing, trips to the Sierra Nevada, Pilates, Latin Dance, concerts and events. Contact us for availability and prices.


The school can organise accommodation with a Spanish family (half-board or full-board) or in a private apartment. All of our accommodation is within a 10-20 minute walk of the school. You are also welcome to organise your own accommodation separately.

I have always enjoyed staying with a family in Granada when I have come to the school. It has been a wonderful experience and has helped with getting to know the customs of the country and the area of Andalusia. The teachers at IDEA are extremely careful to place students with appropriate families which makes for an enriching experience for each student.
