What our students say
The best language school to learn Spanish. Friendly staff and excellent teachers will help you to enjoy your stay. There are all different types of accommodation to met your needs. The cultural programme has a wide variety of activities to keep you busy and entertained all the time. It´s my third year and I’m already planning for the next one. To sum up, an ideal place to learn, meet people and have fun!Theo de Jongste
If it´s International House it´s good, and if that is in Seville, twice the good. Why? Because the quality of it`s teachers and methodology. The proposed cultural activities that contribute to the knowledge of cultural aspects that complement and complete the purely linguistic learning, the climate of the city, for its light, because there are many things to do in the city and near the city. It´s my 5th year coming and I hope many more to come. Thanks CLIC, I miss you already.Janet Bell

Spanish for Seniors
So, you’re ready to embark on a Spanish course for Seniors? You have read all about it and feel this is the sort or course you’ll enjoy. Just one question left… where to do your course? Is Cadiz a good option for your Spanish course? The following points may help you to choose Cadiz as the destination for your course in Spain.
You fancy a destination that is off-the-beaten tracks
If you are one who prefers smaller cities and has a tendency to run away from destinations of mass tourism, Cadiz could definitely be the place for you. The peninsula of Cadiz counts no more than 150.000 inhabitants and has been protected from the tourist boom, especially foreign tourism, and this has made it exceptionally authentic. Do not expect people to speak to you in English or to see a menu in English in restaurants. Cadiz lives at a different rhythm and its people are more attracted to peaceful living than to making business.
You like to avoid crowded urban beaches
You would rather take a walk up and down the dunes than chase a sunbed with umbrella to rent. On the outskirts of the city, only a 10 minute bus ride from the busy city centre, Cadiz offers a 3-W beach: wild, wide and white! No beach bars, no signs, just some kites in the sky. Do not forget to bring some water and food with you.
The light and the air of Cadiz reminds you constantly that you are closer to Africa than to Madrid
The first impression of Cadiz comes with its light, the dazzling light of the South of the South as we like to call it when we refer to Cadiz. This African bright blue, together with the colours and the smells of the city remind constantly that once in Cadiz, you are closer to Morocco than to Madrid or even to Malaga.
History is present at every corner of Cadiz
Few people know, but Cadiz is one of the oldest cities of Europe: yes, it was inhabited by the Phoenicians and has gone through several periods of history. Throughout its more than 3000 years of history, Cadiz has also gone through times of glory such as in the 18th century when it was the main Port of Spain and gateway to America. It was also the setting for the declaration of the first Constitution in Spain, the city breathed the sweet air of liberalism before any other city in Spain in 1812.
How is the Spanish 50+ course in Cadiz?
Our Spanish 50+ formula is similar to our Spanish courses for Seniors in Seville and in Malaga. The teachers have adapted the content and the activities in the classroom to mature students. The rhythm of lessons has also been tailored. What really differs are the scenery and the activities attached to the course. The cultural programme, which is a key component of the course, includes social activities such as guided walks or meals with the teacher and a series of themes or highlights that reflect the richness and character of Cadiz.
What highlights can mature students enjoy that reflect Cadiz character?
The highlight themes in Cadiz include gastronomy and wine, especially seafood, but also art and history.
