Spanish and Culture in Cadiz
We are proud to offer our Spanish and Culture Course for senior students in Cadiz, delivering classes adapted to meet your needs at a pace you will enjoy as you discover the history and culture of our incredible city. And, of course, relax on our beautiful beaches! Classes are fun, relevant, and we offer you plenty of time to practise with your native teachers.
Add to that, the sun, the sea and the city of Cadiz will not disappoint. As well as our classes, Cadiz offers a wonderful cultural programme that also plays an integral part of your learning experience. Alongside the orientation walk, a welcome drink, a meal with a teacher and a flamenco show, we also offer a seasonal ‘highlight’ activity – from wine and gastronomy to art and culture, we even organise trips in a catamaran, day trips to cities such as Jerez and El Puerto de Santa Maria – to show you the best of Cadiz and give you the push you need to get out and enjoy the region!
Cadiz is gem of a city that anyone wishing to experience authentic Spain should not miss. A commercial hub for more than 3,000 years, it combines its cultural legacy with spectacular beaches, delicious food, and a safe and vibrant city centre where you’ll enjoy your learning experience. An ancient port city, Cadiz has a number of architectural points of interest including the ruins of the old Roman theatre, the Santa Cruz Cathedral built between 1722-1838 and numerous Plazas (squares) surrounded by merchants homes, old palaces, museums, galleries, and plenty of bars and restaurants for you to sit and take in the sights.
Not to mention the lively market in Plaza de la Libertad where you can still pick up your fresh fish, fruit, vegetables, and try out your language skills at more than 100 stalls. But it is the light, the pace of life, and the rhythm of the city that really make Cadiz the perfect destination for those who want to be outdoors, close to the sea, and away from the typical touristic spots. El sur del sur (the South of the South), it is unspoiled and full of well-humoured ‘gaditanos’ (people from Cadiz). You will find one of the oldest cities in Western Europe – a fabulous location to have wonderful new experiences on your Spanish and Culture Course.

What our students say
The best language school to learn Spanish at. The friendly staff and excellent teachers will make your stay enjoyable and there are all different types of accommodation to meet 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 it up, an ideal place to learn, meet people and have fun!
If it’s International House, it’s good, and if that is in Cadiz, twice as good! Why? Because the quality of its teachers and methodology. The proposed cultural activities that contribute to the knowledge of cultural aspects complement and complete the purely linguistic learning. The location contributes a lot, because there are many things to do in and near the city. It’s my fifth year coming and I hope there will be many more to come. Thanks CLIC, I miss you already.
