To study in Santiago

Nowadays, many thousands of students and professionals are aware of the importance of the Spanish language. In an increasingly globalised world, the need for learning a language spoken by more than 400 million people is a must for those interesting in acquiring an up-to-date education, one that will guarantee their professional future.

The study of Spanish has experienced a boom in recent years. In the USA it has become the language spoken and studied the most after English. The same is true in many European schools, where Spanish is now the main optional language, often surpassing German, French or Italian. This growing interest in our language means that Spanish is now the second language spoken the most in the world.

The academic prestige of the University of Santiago de Compostela, one of the most renowned and oldest in Spain, is a great reason for studying Spanish in Santiago de Compostela. All the more so if we take into account the fact that its good reputation can be extended to the rest of the city’s Spanish schools. 

Thanks to Santiago de Compostela’s University and private schools, the city offers a wide and varied range of Spanish language and culture courses (summer, six-month, autumn, etc). These include specialised training courses for Spanish teachers, preparatory courses for DELE, individual classes, conversation classes, business Spanish, etc. Furthermore, Santiago de Compostela, the capital of Galicia, is the ideal place for becoming acquainted with the particularities of the Galician culture and learning Galician, a language spoken by 3 million people that is related to Portuguese and Brazilian.
