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

The article invites you choose the city in which you would like to live your Spanish language experience. For more information, we list below a series of facts that may help you make a decision whether Seville is the place for you to do your Senior Spanish Course.
You fancy architecture and tradition
If you fancy architecture and tradition, Seville is, without any doubt, one of the most interesting cities in Spain. You may already know that Seville offers 3 world heritage sites: The Alcazar Palace, the Cathedral and the Archivos de Indias. Besides its world heritage, Seville is a city for strolling, a city to get lost in its old districts, a place to discover small hidden squares and flowery dead end streets. Seville is a journey to the essence of Andalusia and to the golden age of Spain. Upon setting foot in the Andalusian capital, you will understand right away why no fewer than 100 operas take place in this lovely city.
You like crowded and lively bars and terraces
Seville is a vibrant city and its people know a thing or two about savoir-vivre. The economic crisis is no way affected meeting friends around a wine or a beer to maintain passionate discussions about life, politics, or any other subject. Seville is a city in which you will never feel alone. On any day or at any given time, you can find a place with a lively and warm atmosphere to sit down for a drink or tapas.
Flamenco still thrives
Seville is clearly the place for you if you like flamenco music and dance. The level and quality of the performances is amazing. From la casa de la Memoria to the only Flamenco Museum in Spain. Flamenco is not just a music style; it is also one of the most popular expressions of Andalusian culture. Seville gathers the best and most promising and current talents in Flamenco music and dance.
Why is the Spanish 50+ course in Seville is structured differently?
This course is slightly different from our standard courses; the rhythm of teaching and the delivery have been adapted to mature students. The cultural programme plays an integral part of the course. It always includes an orientation walk, welcome drinks, a meal with the teacher, and a flamenco show. The rest of the cultural programme varies according to the season.
Why are all the students in the group over 50 years old?
Participants in the Spanish for mature students course are over 50 for the simple reason that you will enjoy studying with peers that share the same learning profile, tastes, and expectations. The teacher will manage the group at an appropriate rhythm and use material that is adapted to the learning process of mature students.
