Trip overview

Honestly, you really can’t learn a language to that level you really want to without a bit of cultural immersion. Books, apps and classes are great, but it is that everyday practice, those little sprinklings of colloquialism and nuances that you just can’t pick up from anywhere but actually speaking the language every day. 

Learning Spanish in Spain is a joy. Immersing yourself in the vibrant, on-the-street culture of Spain and interacting with the welcoming and friendly locals, will boost your language skills immeasurably. Valencia is the perfect spot for your undiluted Spanish experience. Barcelona and Madrid are cool and all, but as Spain’s third-largest city, Valencia is enough off the beaten track to give that entirely Spanish vibe. 

Valencia is a buzzing city, a perfect blend between classical Spanish architecture and incredibly innovative buildings. Packed with art, bars and restaurants, the centre of Valencia is such a vibrant place to be and your lessons will be right in the heart of it all, just ten minutes walk from Plaza de Ayuntamiento.

Once the course is over, you are in the perfect spot to continue your adventures. Situated on the south coast of Spain, you can choose to travel onwards, down the Costa del Sol to Andalucia and the hot-sticky melting pot of Seville, or north, up to majestic Barcelona and the Costa Brava. Wherever you travel, armed with your newfound language skills, you are going to get so much more from the experience. 

This language course is all about living like a local. You are not just learning a language, you are learning a lifestyle, merging into the rhythms of Spanish life. You can even choose to stay with a Spanish family to fully immerse yourself and discover exactly what it means to live life the Spanish way. Become more than just a visitor on this incredible opportunity to learn Spanish the immersive way.

Trip details

We have specially designed this trip to make sure you are as comfortable as possible when you embark on your Spanish adventure.

Trip location

You are going to Spain’s third-largest city, but the one with far fewer tourists, Valencia. Your classroom is right in the heart of this dynamic city, just a ten-minute walk from Plaza del Ayuntamiento. We always try to arrange your accommodation so you are not too far away, but part of the joy of living in a city is the commuting, so there may be a short bus or underground ride to the school.

Trip itinerary

Arrival

Once you’ve touched down at Valencia airport, your transfer will take you to your accommodation in the city. If you’ve given yourself a few days between your arrival and the course starting, use this time to get acquainted with the city and your new classmates/homestay hosts! Valencia is an amazing city, so try to make the most of it straight away!

Day 1

On your first day, you'll run through your orientation. This will include information about the school, classes, study methods, Spanish culture and daily life in Spain. 

Then dive straight into your class! You’ll undertake a two-hour Spanish class in the afternoon, followed by an optional city tour to get you acclimatised and start bonding with your classmates.

Ongoing

You’ll be heading to the school every day for either a two-hour class if you opt for the standard, or a four-hour class if you go for the intense. These classes are subject to your class level and schedule and will probably change through your stay. 

The school’s concept of teaching differentiates them from traditional Spanish classes. They provide much more personal lessons that are easy to follow and are not limited to any barriers. The methodology is based on continuous practice in a pleasant and fun way, both inside and outside of class by immersing you in everything around you, getting you to discover the city while practising Spanish, rather than just confining you to a classroom and giving you an unforgettable experience.

With this in mind, you will take loads of different little trips with your class to experience Valencia and practice your Spanish. Visit the beautiful Turia Park and City of Arts and Sciences, experience the best museums in the city, the Museum of Enlightenment and Modernity, Valencian Institute of Modern Arts and Centre of Contemporary Culture El Carmen. You will also visit the beautiful Oceanogràfic and explore the delights of Museo Fallero, not to mention a few drinks as you navigate the Spanish language skills needed in bars and restaurants. 

Your weekends are yours to explore the city, or go further around Spain! If you’d like to go on a more in-depth trip around the country, let your course leader know and they can try to rearrange classes. 

We’ll constantly keep in touch with you throughout your stay. If at any point during your trip you need advice or support, our team will be on hand to answer all your questions. Don’t forget you can jump on our social media pages too or buzz our 24/7 emergency support line for urgent matters.

Frequently asked questions

Yes! There are several destinations that are open to travellers right now! And if you’re from Australia, you could be able to get an exemption to travel if you’re travelling for over 3 months*, which is the majority of our trips. We can advise how to apply for this exemption. We recommend our travellers book their trips at least 6-12 months in advance, so by the time you’re ready to depart we’re confident your destination (if it’s not already open) will be open and ready to go. *Full exemption info here.

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected by our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.


If you’re affected by COVID while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We work with a travel insurance company that provides COVID protection, and people going on Volunteer trips will get this for free currently!

Yes we are! All of our trips are still being planned for and taking new bookings. We always recommend that our travellers take 6-12 months between booking their trip to departure. This gives you plenty of time to arrange all the finer details of your trip, and pay it off. If things don’t go as planned you are always able to rearrange your trip using your Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility! So there is really nothing to worry about.

In 2020, the world stopped. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12 months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free. If COVID affects your trip, you are protected for any changes with our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. Why not give yourself something to look forward to, by booking that trip!

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together. Meaning that you can live together and work together. If availability doesn’t allow it, we’ll get you in the same area. So you’ll be able to have this experience together!

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 56 days before departure without incurring ANY charges, and you’re able to rebook it for ANY time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.


In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 56 days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Travel Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 3 years!
