Welcome to our school

Giralda Center is located in Seville, the capital of Andalusia. Founded in 1983, we’ve been receiving thousands of students in our classrooms for more than 30 years, helping them in their Spanish learning process.

Besides offering courses in Spanish as a foreign language for students from all over the world, Giralda Center also offers English, French, German and Italian courses for local Spanish students. This makes us a language school where the multi-cultural factor is an added value for our students.

Giralda Center has a privileged location in central Seville: At a stone’s throw from the Royal Alcazar gardens, the Santa Cruz quarter, The Cathedral and Giralda, and the historical University of Seville. We are in Menéndez Pelayo 16, one of Seville’s best-known avenues where you’ll easily find us: on foot, by bike, bus or metro.

The school occupies a modern building, with 18 spacious classrooms, equipped with interactive technology. The school premises have access facilities for students with disabilities. We provide the students with both computers and free WiFi access in all of our premises. Spacious study areas and open-air roof terrace. The school is surrounded by the beautiful Murillo Gardens.

Giralda Center offers 14 types of Spanish courses, designed with the formative needs of the different student profiles in mind, from general Spanish courses to internships and work experience, access to Spanish university, tailor-made programs for high schools and universities, Spanish courses for families, Spanish and cooking, au-pair work, business Spanish, DELE preparation, private one-to-one Spanish courses. Our student ages range from general adult courses from 18 years old onwards to teenage and school programs (12-16).

All our staff is committed to helping our students in any matter related to their studies, housing or stay in Spain. Our objective is that students feel comfortable in a respectful and familiar atmosphere, and above all that their time at the Giralda Center be the most productive possible.

Cultural activities

Giralda Center offers you an additional program with free sessions (mínimum 8 hours per week) to better acquaint yourself with the cultural, social and leisure aspects of the city. A great opportunity to learn more while sharing the soul of Seville with your companions and teachers.

Seville in flavors

Share, taste and savor Spanish cuisine along the different gastronomic routes we suggest: tapas in bars, bodegas or restaurants, wine-tastings, beer-tastings and cooking classes.

Learn more

Our extra-curricular language workshops, with tips for grammar and vocabulary, will help you to review and better understand concepts in Spanish. In addition, we’ve designed creative activities to practice writing, reading, and oral expression.

Excursions

To travel is to live, to live is to learn...We suggest well-known destinations such as Cordoba, Cadiz or Granada, as well as discovering other places hidden from the eyes of the conventional tourist: the treasures of the province of Seville and its pueblos.

Seville on foot or by bike

Seville, together with Venice and Florence, has one of the most extensive historical centers in Europe. We invite you to discover the incomparable richness of its quarters: from the Alameda to Santa Cruz, from La Macarena to Triana and from San Bernardo to La Encarnacion.

Accommodation

We want our students to continue their Spanish learning outside their classes to achieve a real immersion into Spanish language and culture. We are also conscious that each student looks for different types of accommodation (shared apartment, host family, private apartment, hotel); for this reason, the Giralda Center team makes every effort to ensure our accommodation fulfills the expectations and needs of our students and contributes to the success of their stay in Seville.

  • Enjoy communication and homemade meals with our selection of Spanish host families.
  • Share facilities and social life with Spanish and foreign flatmates.
  • Comfort and independence in a private studio or apartment in the historical district.
  • Experience a new concept of student hostel & boutique hotels at unbeatable prices.
  • Giralda Accommodation PLUS, wi-fi, only 1 student per house, private bathroom, air-conditioning. Tell us your personal needs.
