School logo International House Barcelona

Carrer de Trafalgar, 14

International House Barcelona was founded in 1972 and it can be considered as one of the leading organizations for languages and for teacher training in Europe.

It has an excellent location in the city centre, in a large building composed of six floors with a unique triangular shape.

The building dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and offers some unique characteristics: an entrance that still keeps its exuberant modernist style, lots of light, high ceilings and marble stairs, which all make the building an exciting location to study Spanish in Barcelona in.

The school is spacious and has forty well-equipped classrooms, a library and a study room.

There is also a private bar that is open all day long serving drinks and cold and hot meals in case students get peckish between lessons, and there is a terrace where students can sunbathe and simply relax.

The school has recently constructed a modern annexe with modern classrooms and an auditorium with the capacity for 100 people, helping students make the most of their Spanish course in Barcelona. All equipment available in the school is adapted for disabled access.

I would like to congratulate everyone that was able to make this trip happen. Although the adventure has finished, I know that it was one fo the best trips of my life. Thank you once again!
The people that attended me before I left did so with punctuality and with detail and attended my every question.
The entire trip has been great, interesting, and useful for the mind and heart.
My kids really enjoyed the course in Barcelona. They´ve made new friends and they would have liked to stay longer...Thanks to all the staff at Dencanto Community, we felt safe, helped with everything and we knew we could always count on them.
