San Sebastián

San Sebastian is said to be the most beautiful city on the North Spanish Costa. This stunning city lies between hills, and has a lot to offer: exhilarating beaches ideal for surfing, historic buildings, amazing nature and more. Within the city you can find tasty tapas restaurants, great shopping streets and various events. There is always something to do in the bustling city centre, as many festivals and performances are organized in the central square; in September, the city is always busy with the internationally renowned film festival. Surfing or learning to surf is highly recommended here as the waves are fantastic for both beginners and experienced surfers, which is why the city attracts avid surfers from all over the world.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Lacunza. The program met all the needs of our family: a kid's camp for my 11 year old, a teen program for my 14 year old and an adult program for me. In my life I have attended over a dozen language schools (I speak 5 languages), but Lacunza distinguishes itself with its welcoming families for the home stays, the enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructors, and the sheer beauty of San Sebastian. The kids enjoyed the optional surfing and cooking, as well as many other organized activities. They returned to the U.S. with both new Spanish skills, and more importantly, new life skills. They both greatly appreciated the hospitality and warmth of our new Spanish "families", gained confidence by getting out of their comfort zones to live and communicate with others, and they have a great desire to continue to improve their Spanish. There was something for everyone at Lacunza. It was a life changing experience for the kids and a chance for me to really embrace the wonderful culture of Spain.

The teaching in this school is second to none. I have gone back there several times and have never been disappointed. They understand how language learning works and achieve rapid progress with most students. They are very enthusiastic and motivating.
Outside the classroom, San Sebastián is a wonderful city for the tourist. There is always something new to see or experience. If you need a change, buses from the conveniently located bus station can take you anywhere in the Basque Country or beyond.

Excellent language school, in the heart of San Sebastian. Each student is placed in the appropriate level based on his/her level in Spanish. Small classes, opportunity to take extra private lessons. Very professional and friendly administrative staff can help provide accommodation - ranging from living with a family or local, to shared or independent apartment. They also organize cultural and sports activities (surf, yoga, museums, cooking classes). I have attended twice, progressed my Spanish, and will continue to return. Highly recommended.

I spent a total of 7 months at Lacunza, not as a student, but as an intern/marketing assistant. I look back at my internship as a very educational, interesting and fun period!! To start with, San Sebastián is an amazing city to live in - it has plenty to offer. There's something interesting for everyone (beach, sea and waves, gastronomy, mountains, culture, nature...) and its architecture and beauty makes it very charming. It's also a great city to practice your Spanish. In San Sebastián, you will definitely be able to speak Spanish to locals, in bars, in shops etc., where in major cities like Barcelona, people will start speaking English to you the moment you don't look Spanish (I can tell from experience :)).

The teachers at Lacunza are very professional and kind, and are always happy to help you whenever you need it. Even though I wasn't a student, as a non-native I also needed help with my grammar regularly, and they always took their time to explain things in detail. Also the other staff at Lacunza are always able to help you with anything you need - think about giving you tips about things to in and around the city, problems with your accommodation, etc. - and will treat every student as an individual and try to make them feel at home. This results in a very family-like and cosy atmosphere, where people from all around the world learn, connect and become friends, and experience an amazing time together.

I would definitely recommend studying Spanish at Lacunza, not only because of the beautiful town it's located in, but also because of the quality of the classes, the kind and professional teachers, the extracurricular activities they offer (surfing is great in the Basque Country!) and the helpful staff that make you feel at home right away.

Hasta luego, Lacunza!
