Director of Qimeng Global
We welcome all the young people who wish to spend a few weeks, some months or a full academic year with us. We invite you to live an unforgettable experience in our beautiful city, where you will be able to learn the Spanish language and culture with native speakers in the best schools in our country. We would like to especially extend a very warm welcome to all the students’ families and schools for trusting us. We assure you that you will not be disappointed.
Your children and pupils will have the opportunity to get in touch with our language and culture, which are Spain’s most universal values. Spanish is currently spoken by about 500 million people. It is the second language in the world in terms of the number of native speakers and is the second language of international communication. It is also the second most widely-studied language in the world (after English, with more than 20 million students, although some sources say there are more than 46 million students in 90 countries).
We are based in Barcelona, which is the capital of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. Barcelona has its own way of life, which makes it unique. Wherever you are in Barcelona, there’s always something to see nearby around the neighbourhood or district: jewels of home-grown Catalan architecture, Gaudí’s works, and contemporary architecture, markets that are a treat for the senses, treasures of the ancient Roman and medieval city, and beaches where you can unwind. Our city has a vivid cultural life, which you will be able to see in the opera house, the Liceu, and in the Palau de la Música Catalana, the building that epitomises Catalan art nouveau.
Last but not least, they will be able to visit the Camp Nou, FC Barcelona’s stadium, and the Museum for a first-hand experience of this legendary football club, which is one of the teams with the most titles in the world.
We are waiting for you. Do not miss this opportunity.
