The IELE school has been organising Spanish language and culture courses for people of all ages and levels since 1996. Throughout the year, it welcomes students from all over the world, including Japan, the USA, European Union countries, Brazil, Australia and Canada. The school’s staff consists of experienced Spanish teachers with teaching qualifications. Each course starts with a placement test, which allows students to join the appropriate group (from A1 to C2). Classes are held in groups of up to 8 people, which allow the instructors to adapt flexibly to the individual needs of each student.
The IELE school is located in the centre of Seville, in a 19th-century building, near the Cathedral. The city has an airport with international connections and AVE high-speed train connection, by which you can get to Madrid in less than 3 hours; other attractive tourist destinations in Andalusia such as Granada and Córdoba are easily accessible from here, and the nearest beach is just an hour away. IELE offers a sightseeing tour of Sevilla, the possibility of buying additional trips, as well as help with organisation if the student wants to travel on their own.
Upon request, the school can make a reservation of the chosen accommodation and take the student there directly from the airport or train station. You can choose between single or double rooms with Spanish families (with half or full board), in an independent flat, in a student flat shared with Spanish natives and in a dormitory. All locations are within a short distance of the school. In case a student is not satisfied with the accommodation, IELE offers them other accommodation. The school will help with finding the right hotel, if that is the choice of the course participant, as well as with any problems with organising the trip, related to a visa or other documentation.
