Spanish School in Salamanca
The don Quijote school in Salamanca is located in the heart of the old city center.
The building is 100 meters from the famous University of Salamanca and just two minutes away from the magnificent Plaza Mayor.
The school is a restored 16th-century monastery, whose modern materials used for the recent renovation create a natural balance with the richness, style and class of previous centuries. Studying Spanish in Salamanca in this antique building will make your stay worthwhile!
You enter the Salamanca Spanish School through a beautiful courtyard. This courtyard and the garden divide the language school into three parts: the offices, the cafeteria and the classrooms. The main building has three floors, 17 classrooms, a recreation room (with computers, video, sound system, etc.), a library, a staff/lounge and three offices, where you can learn Spanish.
don Quijote Salamanca was picked more than 20 years ago to be home for the first don Quijote school.
From the beginning, the idea had been clear: to create the largest Spanish as a Foreign Language teaching organization under the slogan “!Vive el español!”; (Live Spanish!) These twenty years of hard work, much involvement and dedication from everyone have led to twenty years of success… and the Salamanca School remains as youthful and full of illusion today as it did on its first day.

Thanks to 24 years of experience teaching Spanish to non-native speakers, Don Quijote is now the leading institution in its field.
All our schools have national and international quality seals and recognition, ensuring the very best in teaching excellence.
With this program, you will succeed in gaining a command of the second most important language in the world, which will help in gaining greater success in the various official Spanish examinations as well as improving your professional prospects.
By focusing on your needs and maintaining small group sizes with students of an identical level, you are guaranteed to improve your Spanish at the fastest rate possible.
At our schools we use an interactive method of teaching which is based on learning by practice and thus means that grammar is covered, but taught as much as possible using practical situations.
All classes are conducted in Spanish, so no matter what level you are, you’ll be fully immersed straight away.
The emphasis is primarily on conversation but we also focus on to reading, listening, and writing.
- Study Materials
You will receive all the learning materials needed, (there may be a small charge for learning materials in the partner schools and in some Latin American schools).
- Cultural lessons
In addition to your language classes, in all schools in Spain* you will be offered an extra cultural class or activity every day, teaching more about cinema, workshops, food, history, Flamenco and more, depending on where you are studying.
This will give you the chance to meet other people from the school, discover even more about Spanish culture and practice your Spanish in a different social environment
Intensity of the courses
Depending on your goals, you can choose as many hours of classes as you wish every day. Our most popular course is of 4 hours a day which allows you to communicate with confidence and ease, and gives you free time in the day to explore or study.
With a higher number of contact hours every day, (a total of 25 or 30 classes per week), you will have further opportunities to practise your skills from the first class and improve your Spanish further.
These additional classes tend to have a more conversational focus, allowing you to achieve your ultimate goal more quickly.
Comfortable accommodation is an essential part of your study trip. If you want an authentic cultural experience, coupled with the added security of living with a family, then Home Stay could be the perfect option for you!
We understand how important it is that you choose the accommodation that best suits your needs.
Staying with a host family undoubtedly allows you to get the maximum out of your course as it allows you both the chance to directly experience local life, as well as developing your language skills with native speakers in a unique way.
You will be given your own keys, so you can come and go as you please with complete independence.
