Spain

Discover Salamanca

Salamanca is a city steeped in history. Its sandstone architecture, glowing Plaza Mayor, ancient university, cobblestone streets and stunning cathedrals – all surrounded by Castile and León landscapes – will bring you into the Spain of castles and kings. It is known for being stunningly beautiful and for inspiring great minds; for its 12th century university with platereque façade, an ancient library and green courtyards; for its vibrant student population all eager to learn and soak in everything this deeply Spanish city has to offer. Salamanca is a small city, where you’ll get to know the barman at your favorite neighborhood café; where you’ll have the opportunity to take a closer look at the places that inspire you; where you’ll be able to walk everywhere and practice your Spanish with friendly locals you meet at the frutería down the street. It is a place where Spanish immersion – immersion into Spanish history, culture, tradition – can truly take place.

Our school

Where better to learn Spanish than a place filled with history and buzzing with lively, youthful energy at the same time? Salamanca inspired us to begin teaching Spanish as a foreign language over 30 years ago; our prestigious school is now located close to the University of Salamanca, in the heart of the city's student center. And it is the perfect place to start a journey into the Spanish language and culture. Our school is housed in a beautiful, historic building that will immerse you in history while you learn. You will be inspired by our passionate, knowledgeable and experienced teachers and you’ll make friends from around the world. If you want to truly live Spanish rather than simply study Spanish, come to our school in Salamanca, where it all began.

What we love about Salamanca

We love that studying Spanish in Salamanca means learning the language at the heart of it all. It is a place where you will discover the Spain of old and journey into a place where history, tradition and learning are second to none. We love that the juxtaposition of the young, university vibe with ancient buildings and deep Spanish traditions creates an environment that inspires learning and discovery; that walking down any street or wandering through any plaza means getting a glimpse into Spanish history and a lesson in Spanish culture that couldn’t be found in any book or learned in any classroom. Salamanca is truly a special city for learning Spanish.

"I spent two wonderful weeks at don Quijote Salamanca. The classes where small and fun. My teachers were great and you could tell they genuinely enjoyed teaching. Salamanca is a great city to practice your Spanish, I don´t think I have ever spoke so much Spanish in my life. I have also made friends from all over the world. I will never forget this experience!!"

"I arrived very enthusiastic about the idea of learning a language I always wanted to discover in a city like Salamanca: culture, history and beauty are the elements I found in this town. I chose Salamanca for its history of student town, and its elegant cathedral. I haven’t been disappointed: the classes were good and some teachers very competent. My overall experience was good though because the students sharing my class were great and talkative. don Quijote has many assets which make of it a very good school: very friendly and available teachers, good locations, serious classes and the books are given, this is great!"
