60 years helping our
students to conquer the world.
Three generations and 60 years. That is our baggage teaching languages and helping thousands of people to open up to the world, to travel thanks to them, to know other places, other cultures and other experiences.
A time that has allowed us to be the reference academy in the city, receive the endorsement of the most recognized international associations and create a learning method that guarantees that your journey through the world of Spanish will be a successful journey and an unique life experience.
Reasons 7 Why choose Lacunza:
1.Our long experience
We are the school that has been teaching languages in San Sebastián for the longest years, the one with the most students, the one with the most international endorsements, the one with the most experienced teachers and the one that offers you the most possibilities.
2. A learning method
very active, interactive and social.
We learn more and better when we have fun. That is why at Lacunza learning is active and based on people, with activities inside and outside the classroom, with materials that go far beyond books, with a lot of conversation and a lot of social focus. In this way you learn Spanish while you are enjoying life and the city, because learning a language is an experience in itself.
We also organize exchanges with people from the city, so that you can meet local people, so that you can practice with them and also learn the language of the street. So they can teach you their language, you can teach them yours, and make it the beginning of a long friendship.
3. We offer you more possibilities than anyone.
We are the largest, most complete and multicultural school in San Sebastián (we have 18 classrooms and students from 29 countries (see nationalities in the graph). This allows us to offer you a greater variety of learning possibilities depending on your level, your age or your needs In addition, you will find a student atmosphere and activities throughout the year, both in our social space and in the experiences that we help you live.
4. Learn in small groups.
By having more students, we have more levels and that allows us to create more groups of fewer people (from 4 to 12, with 7 being the average number of students in a class). This helps you to open up, to enjoy more confidence and to let go of speaking Spanish from the first day, which greatly benefits learning.
In addition, as soon as you arrive we do a level test to confirm that you enter the group that best suits your level and your needs and every 2 weeks we do a progress test in case it is necessary to go up to a higher level.
5. Expert teachers and continuous monitoring.
All our teachers are qualified and highly experienced. Something fundamental in any learning process. They are always by your side, they help you and accompany you, they give you free tutorials outside the classroom and they are the essential point of support so that you learn faster and better. In addition, you have direct contact with our Director of Studies who helps you create your own learning path throughout your stay.

Because we are always by your side, we manage your transfers, your accommodation, we arrange activities for you outside the school, we solve any incident you may have, we accompany you and we are here to listen to you and lend you a hand whenever you need it. Because remember, although we are the largest academy in the city, we are a family academy and students are a fundamental part of our family.
