The Island of Ibiza

Welcome to the Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza

Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” John Dewey, Philosopher

The Beautiful Island of Ibiza (summer season & winter season)

Ibiza is the ideal place to learn Spanish Ibiza is possibly the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean. After your classes and before the sun goes down, there is so much to do in Ibiza: It offers 54 of the most beautiful sandy beaches within 15-20 minutes travel time. Small quiet beaches, long white beaches alive with people and relaxed beach bars and hidden bays you can discover day after day. The nature here is incredibly beautiful.

Ibiza Town

The Colourful Spanish Lady Ibiza Town is the island’s capital and with around 50,000 inhabitants it is also the largest town in Ibiza. It claims legendary status for its beauty and colourful nightlife. Whether you’ve come here for the clubbing or a lazy family holiday, Ibiza Town’s cultural heritage usually comes as a complete surprise. Nobody talks about the fortified town that rises to a dizzy peak on the sunbleached cliffs above the Mediterranean Sea. Regular visitors and locals are used to it. However, in 1999, Ibiza Town’s historic centre became an Unesco world heritage site, and ever since then more and more travelers have been discovering its antiquities for themselves. So whether you come to enjoy the sun and mild climate, to discover the day and nightlife, the beaches, the nature or the gastronomy, you will have it all here during your language course.


Truly Spanish: The Island of Ibiza is a mirror of the Hispanic society, as its thriving economy attracts people from all over Spain and Latin America. In Ibiza the main language is Spanish with all its different accents: Andalusian, Northern Spanish and the different Latin American accents.

San Antonio

The Buzzing Beauty This beautiful former village of fishermen and farmers has become the touristic hotspot of the island. With only around 16,500 inhabitants during the pre-season months of May and June, and the later months of September and October, it’s perfect for couples to enjoy the new promenade, the safe, shallow waters of the bay and the fantastic beaches, which are just a short ferry ride away.

Santa Eulalia The Silent Secret

This small town of only 8,000 inhabitants is known for its quiet atmosphere. Its beautiful seafront promenade is right in the city centre. It runs the length of the wide, curved beach, adorned with palm trees, miniature gardens and a large fountain facing the sea. Here you will also find the only river in the Balearics running into the sea. A pretty, peaceful river-walk meanders up to the Roman bridge which has now been carefully restored. Midway, a footbridge spanning the river gives onto another pretty, paved walkway leading to the little beach of Cala de S’Alga in the neighborhood of Siesta with its small-village atmosphere.

The high season months of July, August and the beginning of September is the best time to come if you are in your late teens and early twenties looking for buzzing nightlife and the most beautiful sunsets you can imagine. San Antonio is home to the world famous Café del Mar where Chill Out music was born, and from here you can get to some of the most stunning beaches of the island, like Cala Conta and Cala Bassa, which are only 10 minutes outside the town.

Facts about Ibiza

the island of ibiza

The world famous nightlife is located just outside Ibiza Town on a beach called Playa d’en Bossa, during the summer months in San Antonio and in some of the biggest clubs in the world, which are some 7 km outside Ibiza Town in the countryside so as to guarantee a low noise level in the city. As a result, Ibiza Town maintains its unique Mediterranean and mainly Spanish atmosphere within the city and its beautiful port.

After the Class

being an island with strong economic growth attracts more and more Spaniards and other Hispanics to move to the island. Here you hear a very wide range of different Spanish accents and melodies. This makes learning Spanish in Ibiza quite fascinating and we encourage our students to use this to their advantage. Take what you learn in the classroom and practice on your private “playground” outside the school… this might be in your host family, the hostal, the supermarket, on the beach, in a Tapas bar, a chiringuito – you name it.

In Ibiza you will find a diverse mixture of people from all over Spain and Latin America. Our unique position of

Your Spanish studies at the school Every student has individual learning goals and distinctive ways of studying a language, therefore they also have different needs. We are well aware of this fact. At the Instituto de idiomas Ibiza we make sure that everyone gets the opportunity to reach his or her personal goals and that they benefit as much as possible from the course. Each week you will have two different teachers. They will rotate every day so you will be exposed to two different ways of speaking and working.

A level test at the beginning of your course ensures that we place you in the right group at the right level. Each Thursday a progression test takes place to make sure that students have understood and are able to use the contents learned during the week. It shows you exactly the status of your development and gives you and the teacher the opportunity to continue, or revise, in the best way possible.

Spanish Intensive Course

20 lessons per week

Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza

20 lessons: General Spanish with 2 rotating teachers per group = more experience and better results

General Spanish with 2 rotating teachers per group. Each teacher teaches one block of 2 lessons. This way students never get used to only one teacher and they hear different accents; the experience is more intensive and gives better results. The intensive course consists of 4 general Spanish lessons each day and is offered at all levels. It focuses on communication, covering the skills of speaking reading, writing and listening.

Spanish Intensive Course

25 lessons per week 25 lessons: 20 lessons General Spanish + 5 conversation classes

This course adds 1 daily conversation class to the Intensive Course of 20 lessons. It is especially popular with those students who wish to further develop their fluency. As these additional lessons take place in groups with different but similar language levels, they are very close to real speaking situations.

Choose your home in Ibiza: - Shared apartment/ flat - Residence/ Hostal - Host family - Hotel

For a great experience here in Ibiza, you need the right course type, the right offer of leisure activities and the right accommodation. It should be as quiet, as social, as far or as close to the cultural offers and beaches as you wish.

Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza

Shared apartments: Type A, Type B and superior If you are the independent type and you want to experience student life to the full, the shared apartment could be the ideal option for you. Your flatmates will most likely come from different countries or backgrounds and may also be classmates from the school or other visitors on the island. You may choose between Type A and Type B apartments. The difference is that type A apartments are in walking distance of the school and from Type B apartments you would have to walk or take a bus to get to the school. Superior shared apartments with high standard facilities are available on request.

Host family If you want to experience directly how the Spaniards organize their daily lives, host family accommodation will be the right choice for you. The Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza selects host families carefully and inspects them regularly. This type of accommodation allows you a detailed insight into the Spanish life style.

Residence A residence is a hostel where many students, or other island visitors stay either in shared, double or single rooms. If you want to meet lots of new people, the Student Residences might be the best experience.

Hotel and private apartments Do you want your own private place and do you require a certain standard? Choose between the 3-5 start options in the city or at the beach. Contact us for booking a hotel or a recommendation. “I had a great time here in Ibiza. Liliana has been an awesome host, she was always nice to us and if we ever needed anything we just had to ask for it. I met new friends and enjoyed the nightlife as well as the various beaches I’ve been to. School was great too, all the teachers were caring and nice. I absolutely recommend Ibiza, although it’s quite expensive, it’s totally worth the money! Thanks again to everyone!” Maria Vittoria M., Italy

Are you relocating to Ibiza or to Spain in general? Do you want to work with Spaniards maybe in your own business or at a new job?

“Thank you for everything! Before I started the course I didn´t speak Spanish at all. Now I speak Spanish fluently and selfconfidently – with some grammar mistakes, but I can speak Spanish! I’m very very happy! My time in the school was the best time of my life and I’m thankful to every fantastic teacher - for their support and their lovely character. Celia, Chus, Anna, Miriam, Maria José and Merce are incredible teachers. Thank you very much! They were my Spanish family!” Kisses, Polly S., UK

The Team The Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza consists of a team of approximately 25-40 people, depending on the time of the year. With a maximum of 120 students at the school this means that there is approximately 1 staff member per 3 students. We always do our best to guide our students during the whole of their stay.

After many schools I attended, I really want to underline this is one of the best schools I’ve been to..

The Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza is an international Language School which means that Spaniards also learn languages here. Besides Spanish, we also offer English, German, French, Russian and Italian courses. So you will also have the opportunity to meet locals who might be learning your mother tongue. On a regular basis the school organizes language exchange events after the orientation walk on Mondays in a local bar. Join us, meet people and make friends.

Many thanks to Irene and Daniel for creating a Spanish school in Ibiza. The perfect place in Europe to learn Spanish and have fun.

Willia m, 36

I did four hours per day for five weeks, without any problem. I’ve learnt a lot of very useful things and I already consider myself a young Spanish speaker ;-). Daniel and Irene were very kind and helpful with everything.” William L.D., France

“I could improve my Spanish and also get in touch with local people and with many students from all over Europe. It was a great experience. The staff at the Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza are very helpful. The teachers are quite demanding but always find the right balance between highlevel-classes and fun. The Instituto also organized a room in an affordable and well located apartment for me. The balance of getting „brainfood“ during the day and beats during the night was just perfect for me.” Wolfgang Schober, Austria
