BARCELONA HAPPENINGS

We at speakeasy language school Barcelona think that it is important that you guys know what to do when you arrive to Barcelona.
Except joining the activities & trips that me Dina plan out for you each week i thought I could share cool webpages to keep track of cool events, restaurants and places to visit !

Here are a few that I use :

Speakeasy BCN growing rapidly

We´ve come so far with making Speakeasy BCN even better than it was.
Since the last time I made a post in the blog, we have opened 3 new class rooms in the building, we have expanded our staff in the reception, we have been on a lot of trips and travels with the students and the community and popularity of the school has been growing a lot!

I think we have a winning concept and I could´nt be happier representing Speakeasy language school Barcelona!

Here is a really nice review a student wrote not to long ago and I could´nt help to get all emotional haha… I get really attached to people who comes to my events and trips and It is always so hard to see you leave !!!

” My name is Sebastian Shrager and I am a 29 year old recent medical graduate from the USA. I had never formally studied Spanish, so I signed up for a 12 week intensive course (4 hours every morning, 5 days a week) and 4 hours a week of medical Spanish in the afternoon. At the end of my 12 weeks, I had an intermediate level of Spanish, which means I was confident enough to speak and text in Spanish. Secondly, and more importantly, the institute is a wonderful environment to grow as human being. The staff are super friendly, the teachers really care if you learn and the extra curricular activities really broaden your horizons. Each week they have around 3 different social activities form visiting a museum, to going to a local market, to doing yoga on the beach and to visiting the bunkers. This activities allow you to explore the city and make new friends with other fellow students at the school. (It’s really great to spend time with people who want to explore and immerse themselves in a new culture just as much as you do) They also have weekend trips, which included a weekend in Madrid, skiing in Andorra, the fire show in Valencia) I went for a weekend in Ibiza and it was one of the highlights of my 3 months in Spain Overall, I think speak easy bcn is a platform for a great experience. You get out of it, how much you put in. If you go to 3/4 classes a week, do not do your homework and never do any of the activities, you will miss out. If you go to class, do your homework and engage in the activities, you will fall in love with Barcelona and make life long friends. ”

Thank you Sebs we appricate you soo much <3 Best of luck with everything !

I got Friday-feelings today people , that´s why me , Dina , community manager at Speakeasy language school Barcelona wanted to write this post to really show my appriciation to this wonderful school.

HAVE A AWESOME WEEKEND PEEPS !

Hasta ahora ! 🙂

WEEK 20-26 july and COSTA BRAVA – TOSSA DE MAR

last week was loads of fun with speakeasy bcn activities .On monday I , Dina Marley , Was holding a hardcore workout at the beach !
We had a 5km run at the boardwalk then a full body streach . We did 25 minutes of HARD crossfit and then powerwalked back to our starting point !
Working out on the beach of Barcelona is really a experiance itself . The late evening sun is making you sweat just about enough and there is always something going on around that maybe takes your focus away from the long hard run that you are doing.
WE HAD FUN and everybody came up to me the day after “complaining” about musclepain , SuCcEs ! (:

Later during the week on wednesday , we went to the Cine Montjuic , which really is one of my favorite activities.
It is so freaking cosy being on the top on the mountain ( Montjuic is a “moutain” situated in the middle of the city) where the air is a little breezier , have a good piknic and watch legendary good movies. Open air cinema is the SH*T and this week we were over 25 students and friends !

During the whole saturday , we were in Costa Brava and the Tossa de Mar area !
Basically I arranged a private bus to pick us up at arc de triomf that took us to Tossa de Mar. We went emidiatly exploring the castle of Tossa which was impressive .
We managed to get tired of it as well and went strainght for the coves , lagoons , hiking , woods , swimming and snorkeling.
This day was really outstanding . The city was beautiful and the adventure we had hiking along the cost and stoping at beautiful spots was really lovely.

This weekend we are of to a surfcamp in San Sebastian. I CAN´t WAIT !!!

Couple of pics from Costa Brava !

Activities growing big…

Yesterday we were at the Sala Montjuic , open air Cinema on the top of Hill Montjuic .
26 students and their friends showed up and I could´nt be happier about the fact that SOO MANNY PEOPLE

We´ve been doing alot of fun stuff lately ,

Ibiza
Climbing Montserrat
Beach Cinema
Paddlesurf
Drinking
Dining
Partying

I am surprised that my imagination isnt running low …

Speakeasy Bcn are really putting alot of energy in making sure that the students have a social life in Barcelona as well , whether you come as a turist to study or just moved to this amazing city. To study abroad is not supposed to be hard, and its not either , because we make it easy and fun ! 🙂

COSTA BRAVA TRIP ! SUNDAYFUNDAY

So our activities at the school are growing in numbers of people  rapidly.
It’s really fun to be a part of this growth . The school is not only a place to learn spanish at but also a great place to meet new souls from all around the world and as well come along to the super awesome activities that I organize !

Sunday was really funday. We had private buses taking us (26 students from Speakeasy)  to 2 of the most beautiful cities of Costa Brava, Empuriabrava and Cadaques !
Our first stop was Empuriabrava were we got to enjoy one hour boat ride! The city itself is built on canals and therefore the best way to have a look around is by boat! If you ask me, this was my favorite part of the trip !

image1 image2 (1) image2 image3 image4

After the boatride we had a couple of hours to invest in whatever we wanted ! Alot of us went to the magical beach of EMPURIABRAVA

image5

We got back at our buss that later took us up between the mountains and offerd us amazing views of the Costa Brava ( the coast ) .
Our next stop was in fact Cadaques, a city located in a valley that borders the water. BEAUTIFUL is the only way I can express myself about it.
We got to enjoy 4 hours in this beautful pueblo.

Our trip lasted from 10 in the morning till 23:00 and it felt like we had a 2 day vacation.
I really recommend these daily trips , they are supercheap , 25 EUROS was this trip ?!

Anywho , If I was you , I would study at Speakeasybcn , I would study abroad.
