What We Offer

Just a few words for you

Hi everyone! I am Celia, the director and teacher of Isbilia Spanish Academy and I would love to tell you how this family project came about:

Don Quixote said that “since you are not experienced in things of the world, all things that are a bit difficult will seem impossible to you. Trust time; it usually provides a sweet way out of many bitter challenges.”  So, as an avid fan of Cervantes, one day I packed my backpack and went to travel to distant places to experience the things that seemed impossible to me. This gave me a new sense of purpose, and soon I started working as a Spanish teacher far from Spain, an experience so enriching that it is hard to describe.

Now, settled in Seville, the teachers that are part of this beautiful project want to offer you the best of our experience and the best of our culture. We are travelling teachers with a great love for languages, for art and for teaching. What is our method? We believe in unique classes, in closeness to our students, in small groups (that is why we do not offer large groups in classes), in a personalised approach, and in being a great family.

Why study with us?

We are professional Spanish teachers with years of experience, so we know how to get you to where you want to go with your Spanish. Also, we adapt to your circumstances: time, level, culture, age and needs. Studying Spanish has never been so easy!

I have been studying Spanish grammar for a long time
and still find it difficult to speak

If what you need is to improve your speaking, you can trust our methodology: we focus on enhancing speaking skills to build your confidence in every lesson. We have a lot of students taking online Spanish conversation classes. Tell us about your learning experience and we will get you on the right track!

Have I left it too late to start studying Spanish?

Age is not a barrier. The technology we use in our lessons is super friendly and you will always receive all the support that you need. If, on the other hand, you want to come on a trip and practise for a few weeks, we have had many students with this requirement in past years. We always create a customised Spanish programme for adults.

I find it hard to motivate myself to study Spanish

This can happen for many reasons. Perhaps lessons in the past have not been suited to your level, or you have not found a teacher who understands your personal motivations and goals. Or perhaps you do not have a lot of time to study and need a lot of flexibility. We understand that each student or each group needs a specific methodology. Tell us what you need and we can cater a course to you.

I want native Spanish teachers but I´m not sure
about online classes

We are experts in both in-person and online classes, and we will show you that studying Spanish via Skype or Zoom is also fun and a very useful way to improve the language. You don't need to come to Seville to improve with us!

Why choose to study Spanish in Seville?

Seville is a multicultural city with great opportunities, not only to meet people, but to better understand the history of Spain and Andalusia. It is a beautiful city rich in history, and we work closely with official city tour guides to be able to offer you guided tours for small groups. We can take you to see our world-famous landmarks as well as to enjoy our colourful patios, gardens and terraces.

*Our group courses are made up of a maximum of 5 students per class. We make sure that every student receives the best attention.

I would 100% recommend Isbilia to anyone wanting to improve their Spanish! I have had such a great experience working with them and they have helped me gain confidence and boosted my Spanish level tremendously! I started with them when I just arrived and spoke very little Spanish and they have supported and guided me through my journey to where I am now working and studying at a B2 level! Overall they are such a great school who provide a brilliant and supportive learning environment!

Hola, soy Thomas y soy de Suiza. Conocí a Celia y aprecié su trabajo el año pasado en Sevilla cuando pasé diez días en esa maravillosa ciudad para mejorar mi español, que en ese momento era de principiante. En poco tiempo no sólo pasé a un nivel más alto de español, sino que también aprendí mucho sobre la cultura, la historia y la vida actual en Sevilla de una forma muy interesante. Incluso después de mi estancia en Andalucía, Celia continuó siendo mi profesora de español, hasta a día de hoy, que naturalmente hacemos nuestras clases a través de Skype.

What not to do if you want to learn Spanish

What do we not do at Isbilia?

Our teaching philosophy

Nowadays, we live in a specialised world and don’t always see that all branches of knowledge are actually inter-connected. Our teachers, as well as specialising in teaching Spanish as a second language, also have backgrounds in Spanish history, linguistics and journalism. We are deeply interested in the world that we live in, from science to current affairs, music, art, literature, sports and, of course, other languages! 

Language is a door to other cultures, and from the quirky colloquial expressions we use in everyday life to our Nobel Prize-winners, Spanish culture shines through in our language. Being a good teacher not only entails being a good communicator, it entails constant research and development to find and create resources that bring this diversity and richness to you. This is why we go out of our way to engage you in the learning process through culture in a fun and interactive way. Why do we use certain expressions? What are the characters and themes that appear in our films, books, and music? How does our history reflect who we are? What does the Spain of the future look like?  We keep abreast of developments so that you can enjoy the very latest in Spanish language, society and culture.
