International Accreditations

Instituto Cervantes

The accreditation by the Instituto Cervantes is among the most prestigious and well-known international acknowledgements for Spanish Language Schools. To achieve the status of accredited institute, each school must meet a high standard of academic excellence, offer quality facilities, continuous training of staff and professors, have specific teaching equipment and assure that required information is provided to the students before, during and after their experience. Our schools in Barcelona, Madrid, Salamanca, Tenerife, Valencia (Spain), and Playa del Carmen (Mexico) all have earned this accreditation. Each school goes through this rigorous accreditation process every 3 years.


Our schools in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia and Tenerife are officially part of the Federación Española de Asociaciones de Escuelas de Español para Extranjeros (The Spanish Federation of Associations of Spanish Schools for Foreigners), whose primary objective is to promote a high standard of Teaching of Spanish in Spain. All accredited schools have obtained the quality stamp in the field of Spanish Teaching.


The Madrid Chamber of Commerce

All don Quijote schools are accredited by this prestigious institution, guaranteeing that our official Spanish Business Exam Preparation Courses meet a high standard of quality. This ensures that our qualified teachers are experts and knowledgeable about the exam as well as that the material used in class is updated, appropriate and relevant.
