It is very centrally located, at a 2-minute walk from the historic district of the city and very close to all the major monuments. It is a small, family-like school and offers 6 classrooms and an area with computers with free internet access for students. Furthermore, there is wi-fi connection available in all the facilities. The total number of students can reach 90; the average group size is 5 students, with a maximum of 8 (10 in June, July and August).

Social Programme

Santiago de Compostela enjoys a cooler and more humid climate than the rest of Spain, which can be a great relief especially in the scorching heat of the summer months. Its climate aside, this region is the sunniest of all northern Spain. The Galician region is particularly suitable for horse-riding, walks and mountaineering. Apart from the language courses Iria Flavia regularly organises activities such as:

  • Tapas tours
  • Concerts and cultural events
  • Film showings
  • Cookery workshops
  • Exchange programmes with Spanish students(intercambios)

Because of its proximity to this region, Portugal is also a favourite destination for excursions.

The accommodation in a shared apartment gives you the possibility to live with 4-6 international students from the language school.

Cleaning service once a week in common areas is provided but students must clean their own bedrooms. Bed linen and towels are provided.

Host family

Living with a Spanish host family in Spain will enable the student to see and understand many aspects of the Spanish lifestyle enabling them to obtain a better knowledge of Spanish culture, traditions, etc. Many host families have been chosen for these purpose in order to make the stay of our students as pleasant as possible. They will be treated as part of the family. Even though Santiago de Compostela is a relatively big city, the school will always try to accommodate students within a 20/30 minute radius of the school.

Residence
