Cádiz has everything you need to enjoy your language stay including beautiful sandy beaches, warm sunny climate, and a traditional Spanish culture that celebrates the joy of food, friends and conversation as part of its national pastime.
Our premium partner school is located in a stunning building comprising of a private roof top terrace. There are 10 classrooms on two floors which are bright, air-conditioned, there is a kitchen students can use, a vending machine and a student lounge with free WiFi. This state of the art language school is just 15 minutes walk from the beach and the charming historic city centre. The school was founded in 2010; it is accredited by Instituto Cervantes and is also member of IALC (International Association of Language Centres).
The 25 Spanish lessons cover the four main language skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing along with discussions and activities on Spanish life and culture. Your lessons will be with other international students giving you the chance to experience an international classroom environment while making friends from all over the world (class size max 10). These classes run in the morning, leaving plenty of time either side for excursions, sunbathing, fiestas and homework!
The first 4 lessons a day will be general Spanish lessons and the extra class will be a Leaving Cert preparation class which will cover specific language learning needs, such as preparing topics for the Leaving Cert Spanish oral, working through exam papers and overall fluency and confidence. This is great for students who want to get a boost ahead of the curve, do the best as they possibly can in their exam.
Staying with a Spanish Host is one of the best ways to improve your Spanish and experience the Spanish way of life at first hand. To fully immerse yourself in the language, our partner school arranges accommodation with carefully selected Spanish hosts who are located either within walking distance. The hosts are visited regularly by the school’s Accommodation Officer and are known to the school. Students are accommodated in twin shared rooms on a full-board basis. If you would prefer to be accommodated in a single room, there will be a supplement of €40 per week, you can request it at time of booking. You will have breakfast, lunch and an evening meal with your host and the family may sometimes have another student of a different nationality staying with them who also attends the school.
The school organises 3 days of activities during the week and an excursion on Saturdays which are advertised on the school notice board each week which includes sports, cultural visits, social events and so on. Cadiz is also a fantastic location for water sports including paddle boarding, kayaking, parasailing, water skiing, kitesurfing and the school will be happy to help you organise whatever you are interested in doing.

This course is year round so you can book from 1 week onwards. Courses start every Monday.
You will be met on arrival by your Spanish Host or a school representative and brought straight to your accommodation if taking the school’s airport transfer (which we recommend). Please be sure to email the school at least 2 weeks prior to departure to confirm your flight details. You will see either your name or the school’s name on a board as you come through arrivals. We will also give you an emergency telephone number for the school which you should call in the event that your flight is delayed.
Depending on where your Spanish host is situated, the school can be within walking distance or you can take public transport. You will be shown to your school on the first morning.
You will have a level test on the first morning before you start your course and will be placed in a class with other students of the same level. Your level will be monitored during the course and if you feel your class is too easy or too difficult then you should speak with your teacher or let us know and the Director of Studies will see if it’s possible to move you to a different class. Everyone at the school is very approachable and once you let someone know they will make sure that the move is as quick and smooth as possible for you.
It includes your accommodation with breakfast, lunch and evening meal.
Your accommodation details are confirmed as soon as we receive them from our partner school. This is usually 1-2 weeks prior to departure but can sometimes be much sooner. At the same time, you will also receive our pre-departure information with all your school details and emergency contact numbers for your stay.
You can book online or over the phone whichever is easiest. Once the form is complete all you need to do to secure your booking is to pay a deposit of €200. It usually takes 1-2 days before your booking is confirmed and the final balance is due 4 weeks prior to departure. You can pay either by card, bank transfer or cheque.
As we are not a travel agency, we don’t book flights. However, we can advise on which flights would be suitable so please email or give us a call and we would be happy to talk you through it.
Please note, do not book your flights until you have received confirmation of your enrolment by Tribe Study Abroad.
Students who are minors (under 18) are required to have a signed parental permission form if they wish to go out in the evenings. Parents of students who are 15-17 years old and staying with a host family are advised of the following curfews: 23:30 (Sunday to Thursday) & 00:30 on Fridays and Saturdays.
For more information contact our office at 00 353 121 433 14 or through our Contact Us page.
Please refer to our Terms of Business for further information on our cancellation policy.
The minimum age students can attend is 15+. During the year there are lots of students from different countries between 16 and 20 and for the rest of the year, the average is 20-28 years.
All students are expected to be active in their courses. This includes a certain amount of homework –i.e. preparing vocab for the next day or a written piece based on what you have learned in class that day. Homework will be corrected and given back as this helps you track your progress. However, the amount of homework given will not affect your time for leisure-plenty of time to soak up the sun with a delicious ice-cream!
Yes, of course. If you would like to share accommodation with your friend just request it on the booking form and we will do our best to make sure you are accommodated together. If you are travelling on your own – don’t worry. You will soon make lots of friends and you will usually be sharing with another student close to your age.
