Why Carmen de las Cuevas?
The school’s friendly and relaxed atmosphere will make you feel at home from the moment you arrive at Carmen de las Cuevas, allowing you to really make the most of your stay with us. You will have your own key to the school, giving you access between 8am and 11pm, 7 days a week, to all our facilities, including the library, video and music rooms, free internet and WIFI, dance studios, the patio, and of course the terraces with their panoramic views of the Alhambra.
Student accommodation is located in the historic quarter of the Albaicin, close to the school and city centre. You can choose to rent a private apartment or a single or double room in a shared residence, or you can opt to stay in a charming hotel or with a Spanish family.
We also offer weekend excursions to places of interest around Granada, such as the “Costa Tropical”, the villages of the Alpujarras, the Guadix region, Cordoba and Seville...
We are a Spanish Language School acknowledged by the Instituto Cervantes, as well as a leading Flamenco Centre, a popular choice owing to its spectacular location and authentic Andalusian ambience. The school building, a charming whitewashed house cut into the hillside, boats several sun-drenched terraces with breathtaking views of the Alhambra. Founded in 1984, it is perfectly situated between the historic neighbourhoods of the Albaicin and the Sacromonte, and, 25 years on, continues to combine experience and enthusiasm to provide a unique learning experience.
Teaching groups are kept small, allowing greater individual attention and more personal relationships with the teachers, all of whom are academically qualified, highly motivated and very experienced in teaching Spanish to foreigners. Lessons are well-planned, following a structured programme which is continually undergoing revisions and improvements.
A free cultural programm is available to all students enrolled on a course, and offers guided tours through the city, as well as special recommendations for flamenco and cultural events that take place in Granada.
If you would like to combine your language classes with flamenco, Carmen de las Cuevas is considered one of the most prestigious schools in Andalucia, a meeting place where both professionals and aficionados of flamenco come together. We have 3 sound-proofed flamenco studios, and offer dance, guitar and compas (rhythm clapping) lessons for all levels, from beginner to professional.
Intensive Spanish for all levels
