Course L: 16 Days

Our star course. This is the only course that follows the complete route and gives you the opportunity to submerge yourself in the most intense Spanish language experience. A Spanish course with a difference, offering over 110 teaching hours (the equivalent of a 6 week intensive course) and complete immersion in the culture and traditions of the land that inspired “Don Quixote”.

Ruta Ñ courses are based on an innovative study plan designed and taught by personnel from a centre accredited by the prestigious Instituto Cervantes.

The study plan has been designed to adapt to the original format of Ruta Ñ programmes.

Something else that makes our courses so special is the price-quality ratio.

  • The study groups will then be assigned based on the results achieved in the levelling test. Student preferences will also be taken into account when assigning the groups (e.g. those registered as couples, groups of friends/relatives, etc.)
  • Students will also be asked to answer a series of self-assessment questions which will help us to arrange the groups.
  • The study plans will cover all six levels of the European Common Framework of Reference for Languages (levels A1 to C2).
  • At the end of the course, students will be asked to complete a questionnaire designed to assess what they have learned in relation to topics such as grammar, history, culture, local cuisine, etc .
  • Students will receive a diploma on completion of the course.
