Our students say

After researching many language schools in Barcelona CactusBcn seemed like the best value Spanish language school. The school is very small with only two teachers and small class sizes. My teacher is amazing and by far the best language teacher I have had. The teaching style involves a lot of conversation and interaction between the teacher and students in a very relaxed environment, which is perfect for learning conversational Spanish quickly. I highly recommend CactusBcn and I will definitely take more classes there in the future.

These ladies are the best! You can tell they truly enjoy what they are doing, have great energy and are always looking for ways to personalize a program that works for you. I have taken private and group lessons and have found both formats to be really great. I couldn’t recommend them more.

Excellent place to get started and carry on!! Reasons are: there isn’t a coarse contract and is a month to month payment. Therefore if you have to leave on holiday and come back it’s great or if you feel you good same. You don’t have to buy extra books and the price is the best out of any school. Stop researching and apply. I’ve done all the research and this school is perfect!!! It’s central, right next to Liceu metro station so you can get there from anywhere.!!! Teachers are soooo friendly and extremely patient. You can find a smile on their faces every day!!! The coarse and learning experience is amazing. In 1 month I can serve customers and speak basic Spanish to my customers at my bar.

I’ve been studying Spanish with Marta at Cactus for three months now. It’s a really amazing experience of studying a new language.The reason I chose Cactus because they have small class for each level. Teachers can take care of each students. I feel a lot of different between other language schools. In the class the activities are interesting, and teacher is full of patient and passionate. I improved a lot about my grammar and vocabularies. I’m looking forward to take more classes at Cactus in the future. So, what are you waiting for? I highly recommend Cactus for everyone!😊

This is a difficult question to answer because there are many factors to take into consideration. For most people the goal is to be able to participate actively in a social or business conversation in Spanish. If you attend classes regularly, put in the effort of doing your homework and do not leave too much time between classes, then generally speaking this goal can be achieved after 2-3 months of regular Spanish classes (i.e. 6 hours a week).
