Learn Spanish in Santiago de Chile
Our Spanish school in Santiago de Chile is an architecturally stunning old mansion located in the centre of Chile. The interior is no less impressive, with spacious rooms, furnished to perfection with complementary color schemes.
The school comprises the following spaces: 14 classrooms, 5 bathrooms, an IT suite, a lounge, a restaurant and a sun terrace which benefit from a panoramic view over the city.
The school is big enough to host some events throughout the year but it still feels comfortable; a place to feel at home among modern and antique architecture.
Each school day consists of four lots of fifty-five minute sessions split into two blocks with a twenty minute comfort break in between.
Our Spanish Teachers
Only university graduates qualified to teach Spanish as a foreign language are employed by the school. Most teachers have a second or third European language too. As well as imparting knowledge about the language itself, teachers are dedicated to educating their students about local customs and culture too.

After a shower of rain when the air is clear, Santiago city lies in a spectacular sunlit setting like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Santiago is framed by snowcapped mountains which, as well as looking pretty, serve as an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life: a wide range of activities such a climbing, horse riding and skiing are all available on your doorstep. Although perhaps not as grand as Buenos Aires, Santiago is certainly the most cultured and quirky of the two cities.
