Spanish Courses in Cadiz, Spain


Spark Spanish is a vibrant and dynamic language school and cultural residence situated 'off the beaten track' in the beautiful coastal town of El Puerto de Santa Maria. At Spark Spanish we strive to create a friendly environment, , where learning a language goes hand in hand with an enriching holiday experience. Our dedicated, professional and talented team are always at your disposal to meet your educational, personal and cultural needs. A big part of what makes us different to other schools is our range of courses, from general Spanish to total immersion and Spanish language holidays, all of which aim to allow anyone, regarless of age or level, to learn the Spanish language. Our courses provide a combination of in-class teaching and a range of cultural activites and events to ensure that our students throughly enjoy their learning experience with us. Students benefit from a truly personal approach to language learning with extra challenges and incentives which promote the use and consolidation of the language while our cultural residence brings a diverse range of people to live together alongside our Spanish speaking staff to create a friendly and communal atmosphere that makes our residence so popular with our students.


Spark is lucky enough to have students from all over the world and from lots of different walks of life. The age ranges from students as young as 16 to students in their 80's! This makes the Spark experience that much better!


    At Spark we believe your learning experience with us should be comfortable and convenient. Spark is a fully functioning academy and residence that is modernly equiped with everything you could possibly need. In the academy we have 7 classrooms, a chill out zone with vending machines and access to a flatscreen tv and dvd player. We also have a big roof terrace that is perfect for BBQ's, relaxing in the sun and socialising with other students or members of staff.

    Spark is located in the perfect area, El Puerto. We at spark truly love El Puerto and believe it to be a gem of a place for learning a language.  We are located close to big cities such as Cadiz, Jerez and Seville as well as the Pueblos Blancos (White Villages) but away from the tourists, students get to experience authentic daily Spanish life. It is a medium sized town with 5 fantastic beaches, fabulous food  in the form of many excellent tapas bars and restaurants (including  one of the ten worldwide restaurants worth a visit, according to the NY Times, 2010!), a very active nightlife scene, and much more!


    Here at Spark, we know that solely language learning can sometimes be a daunting thought, which is why we offer an exciting array of fun activities, to get you active. Whether you want to go golfing or dancing, go kite-surfing, Spark Spanish has definitely got something to suit you!

    We offer a cultural events programme, where we combine various activites to allow our students to make the most of their time here, by combining cultural activities, such as sherry or wine tasting, horse riding shows and days to explore El Puerto de Santa Maria and the surrounding areas like San Fernando or San Luca. The cultural events programme is a perfect way to practice your newly learnt Spanish in a very practical way, and it is a great way to meet new people (usually local Spaniards).


    How to get there

    We offer free of charge transfers to and from Jerez airport and from El Puerto train station at designated times.

      Quality not Quantity that matters
      Spark Languages school, although is a small school, it has good atmosphere , facilities and adaptable friendly staff. This has effectively made my short stay for learning spanish at Spark Idiomas very memorable and exciting. It is a good place for all ages to learn a new language skill. Yours sincerely devoted Samson Chinien

      I had such a great time at Spark Languages, the teachers were very friendly and I improved my Spanish a lot! The cultural activities were amazing, especially the sherry tasting was interesting. El Puerto de Santa Maria is also perfectly located to discover Andalusia. In the weekends I went to Gibraltar and Cadiz, these cities were very nice and are worth a visit!

      I had a really great time at Spark. I thought they were really professional and all the staff members were really willing to help at all times. I really liked staying in “Sparkville” (the student residence), as it was a great place to meet new people. El Puerto de Santa Maria was a great location to practice my Spanish, and in the 4 weeks I was studying there I really improved on my speaking skills, especially in the local bars and restaurants. Being a native English speaker, most places in Spain that I visit I seem to always only speak English, however not in El Puerto, which was an added bonus!

      I went to Spark for four weeks to perfect my knowledge of Spain. I really enjoyed the classes - there's a small student-teacher ratio and everything is tailored to your level. The cultural activities in the afternoon/evening are great - I learned loads about Spanish culture and met a lot of people from all over the world who also wanted to learn and practise Spanish. The events give you a chance to use the Spanish you learn and are really enjoyable too! Even people who were complete beginners to the language were able to hold conversations in it by the end. El Puerto de Santa María is a good town to learn in too, because there are very few foreign tourists and the people who live there are happy to speak Spanish with the students. Would definitely recommend it!

      Toen ik bij Spark kwam sprak ik geen woord Spaans, maar de docenten en medestudenten bleven spaans praten en zo leer je heel snel goed spaans. De lessen zijn van een hoog niveau, maar wel zo dat iedereen mee kan blijven doen. Omdat de klassen niet groot zijn krijg je heel veel persoonlijke aandacht en begeleiding. Wat we die dag in de klas geleerd hadden konden we vaak de middag en avond weer gebruiken wanneer we jamon, sherry of vino gingen proeven in de lokale barretjes. Deze vrijwillige uitstapjes zijn alles behalve een straf! Er werkt een heel jong maar zeer gemotiveerd team, iedereen staat 24u per dag tot je dient. Boven de school zit een residentie waar alle studenten slapen. De kamers zijn eenvoudig, maar netjes (er komt zelfs twee keer per dag een schoonmaakster!) en de meeste van ons aten elke avond samen, om daarna naar het dakteras te gaan om nog lekker na te borrelen, spelletjes te doen of liedjes te zingen. Er is een gitaar aanwezig en daar wordt gretig gebruik van gemaakt. Ik heb hier echt twee hele fijne weken achter de rug. Ik voel me zelfverzekerd over mijn spaans, heb hele leuke vrienden gemaakt en heb Spark al aan meerdere vrienden aanbevolen. Vooral de persoonlijke benadering, de culturele activiteiten en het vele gelach maken dat ik met warme gevoelens aan mijn tijd in El Puerto de Santa Maria terug denk!

      I studied at Spark for 2 weeks and had a great time. The staff were so nice and personal and my teacher was great. Residence was fantastic to stay in, I loved the roof top. El Puerto has great beaches and locals were so friendly. I made so many friends and would love to go back.
