I had the most amazing experience at Olé Barcelona. I studied for five weeks at the school and really found that my skills in Spanish improved tenfold. The classes were really enjoyable and I liked that they weren’t too big. Everyone that worked at the school was super lovely. Thank you so much for having me! I’ll definitely be back.

I had the pleasure visiting the Olé school for 5 months and counting, both for evening classes and an intensive course during summer.

All four are simply amazing and helped me improving my Spanish grammar by a lot as well as gaining more confidence in speaking. On top of that, I met great classmates who I enjoyed doing the classes with. Lastly, Noelle is awesome and helped me anytime with facilitating my schedule and all my requests super smooth. Top school, top people.. can only recommend!!

Attended three months. All of our teachers were terrific, encouraging, a joy to spend time with. I chose the four hours per day, 5X/week option. Two hours of interactive instruction followed by two hours of conversational activities. Extremely well organized in a pleasant environment. Loved getting to know students from all over the planet.

I love this school, it is a warm and welcoming community with great teachers, staff and students. I began with no prior Spanish language experience, have been studying there for 5-weeks & I’ve learned a lot. My teachers are incredibly engaging, experienced and supportive and due to the smaller class-sizes they can easily adjust to address the needs of each student. Huge thanks the Olé team, I highly recommend this program! I love this school, it is a warm and welcoming community with great teachers, staff and students.
