ACADEMIA IRIA FLAVIA, YOUR SCHOOL OF SPANISH

Academia Iria Flavia is an Institute Cervantes accredited school established in Santiago de Compostela in 1994. From that time thousands of students from all continents have discovered the wonders of our monumental city, its countless parks and its gastronomy while learning Spanish in our classrooms.

The school is strategically located, only 2 minutes away on foot distance from the monumental area.

We organize your full stay: course, accommodation, and also your airport transfers.

What's more, we provide you a range of free and paying activities in order to use the Spanish language outside the classroom environment, and to socialize with other students.

We also have an exchange program with local Spanish people so you can meet native speakers.

We have a big variety of courses aimed at adult learners, university students, secondary school students, as well as specific formation for Spanish teachers,  native and non native alike. Our own team of teachers, with a long experience and also a great sense of humour, will help you enjoy your stay.

Welcome to Academia Iria Flavia and Santiago de Compostela!

Methodology

The main goal of our courses is the communication. And so, the activities developed in the classroom aim to encourage dialogues and an exchange of ideas. We thoroughly enjoy working with current topics, offering exercises and situations which will be useful "out there".

Our classes follow these approaches:

  • Our classes follow these approaches:
  • Work with motivating and relevant tasks according to levels and needs
  • Up-to-date and assorted materials, as well as student handbooks from the most prestigious publishing companies.
  • Focus on communicative skills.
  • Attention to the improvement of the fluency, self-confidence and fear of mistakes.
  • Dynamic and enjoyable lessons.
  • Build-up of a good work environment, flexible and playful.

We always speak to you in Spanish and we constantly use mime techniques in order to not turn to  bridge-languages, continuously exposing you to the language which you are studying. We teach you standard Spanish but we will also mention Latin American varieties.

All our programs, methods and materials have been assessed and evaluated by the Instituto Cervantes on its regular audits.

Teachers

Our staff is made up of native teachers with university degrees related with teaching, and they all have good communicative skills and wide experience in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.
