About us

"Family, professional and friendly atmosphere. That is what I was looking for when I decided to start learning Spanish and I found it in El Aula Azul . I have been studying with them for four years now and, at school, I feel at home. It is my second family ”.
Laurien Lijbaart, The Netherlands
Just like our students, we are convinced that a pleasant atmosphere is essential in the process of learning a foreign language. The student has to feel good and motivated to continue making progress in that process and that is our focus at El Aula Azul: to work closely, by personalising the lessons and adapting ourselves to the needs of each one of our students.

Besides, it is very important for us to take care of our class methodology . That is why we constantly train our teachers to adapt to the new developments in Spanish teaching , so that the final result is well-structured quality classes in which our students learn and enjoy at the same time.

However, although we know that a pleasant environment and a careful methodology are enough to learn, they do not guarantee an "unforgetable experience". And as that is what we want you to experience at our school, we offer you:
