Social activities

Social and cultural activities programme in the afternoon included in the course fee (6 extra hours of Spanish immersion). IH Barcelona organizes guided visits and excursions to places of interest in and around Barcelona, films in Spanish, concerts by local musicians, and language exchange evenings at which students can meet and talk with some of our other students who are learning English, French or German in the school. Most of these activities are included in the course fee. We also cooperate with a local tour operator to offer full day excursions outside of Barcelona. The Social Programme is changed every two weeks so that students staying for longer periods will not have to repeat specific activities. All students are given a copy of the Social Programme planned for the following 2-week period when they arrive. The school also cooperates with a local tour operator to offer full day excursions outside of Barcelona.
