Spanish Language Course
If your Spanish skills are still very basic, you will have to take a Spanish language course before you can work in hotel jobs in Spain. Employers and colleagues working in hotel jobs in Spain, as well as hotel guests, will rely on you to have solid Spanish language skills.
Do you only have very basic knowledge of Spanish, or are you still a bit shaky and unsure with your use of the language? Then take the opportunity to enrol in a 2 to 4-week Spanish course, with 20 classes a week, each class lasting 50 minutes. The course takes place in the lovely city of Seville, in the heart of Andalusia. You will have the chance to refresh and expand your knowledge of Spanish, in a class of 10 students or fewer.
If you want to find friends as quickly as possible in Spain, take part in the free-time activities offered by the school, which include excursions! You will stay in a single room in shared accommodation for the duration of the course, with other Spanish students or with local Spanish people. You will need to purchase your own meals. You are welcome to extend the language course for an additional price of Ł 280 (US$ 465 / 310 €) per extra week. This price includes both the Spanish course and accommodation.
