Trip overview

Honestly, you really can’t learn a language to that level you really want to without a bit of cultural immersion. Books, apps and classes are great, but it is that everyday practice, those little sprinklings of colloquialism and nuances that you just can’t pick up from anywhere but actually speaking the language every day. 

Learning Spanish in Spain is a joy. Immersing yourself in the vibrant, on-the-street culture of Spain and interacting with the welcoming and friendly locals, will boost your language skills immeasurably. Valencia is the perfect spot for your undiluted Spanish experience. Barcelona and Madrid are cool and all, but as Spain’s third-largest city, Valencia is enough off the beaten track to give that entirely Spanish vibe. 

Valencia is a buzzing city, a perfect blend between classical Spanish architecture and incredibly innovative buildings. Packed with art, bars and restaurants, the centre of Valencia is such a vibrant place to be and your lessons will be right in the heart of it all, just ten minutes walk from Plaza de Ayuntamiento.

Once the course is over, you are in the perfect spot to continue your adventures. Situated on the south coast of Spain, you can choose to travel onwards, down the Costa del Sol to Andalucia and the hot-sticky melting pot of Seville, or north, up to majestic Barcelona and the Costa Brava. Wherever you travel, armed with your newfound language skills, you are going to get so much more from the experience. 

This language course is all about living like a local. You are not just learning a language, you are learning a lifestyle, merging into the rhythms of Spanish life. You can even choose to stay with a Spanish family to fully immerse yourself and discover exactly what it means to live life the Spanish way. Become more than just a visitor on this incredible opportunity to learn Spanish the immersive way.


Spanish language lessons

Choose your preferred intensity. Learn Spanish in a structured, but relaxed environment for the standard 10 hours per week, or take it up a notch with the intensive 20 hours a week course (for a small additional charge). With small classes of only 4-8 students, you'll get enough personal attention from the teacher to ensure you get the most out of each session.

Trip details

Immersing yourself in a different culture is by far the best way to go about learning a new language, but we are all human here, we know it can be a little daunting to just launch yourself into a whole other way of life. We have specially designed this trip to make sure you are as comfortable as possible when you embark on your Spanish adventure. 

Our backup is legendary. You will have the support of your Trip Coordinator before you go and then there is a dedicated team on the ground to make sure everything runs smoothly and you never feel out of place in your new Spanish home. We will transfer you to your accommodation, settle you in and even take you out to experience Valencia at night to make sure you get comfortable with the city before you even kick-off.  

Your actual course is right in the heart of Valencia and depending on which option you go for, you will either be doing 2 or 4 hours of study every day. The teaching style is all about learning Spanish for real situations, not a load of useless phrases. You will face daily situations in the class with local people who will help you with the more conversational side, how people really speak in Spain, rather than what you learn from a book or app. Then, when your course is done for the day, you can head out and explore this dynamic city, and make it your home away from home. 

This course is much more in-depth than most language courses. We don’t believe in surface learning, we want to immerse you in the language, to feel the joy in it. We want you to surprise that old lady in the local shop when you speak like a true Valencian. You will come away from this not just with Spanish language skills, but with a ton of confidence and a phone list of new friends from all over the world, who you can hopefully visit on another trip. A trip like this is great for the resume/CV, great for your own growth and development and great for the world, as you forge friendships and discover how different cultures work.


You must do a Spanish language test before you go so you know which level to start on.

What extra costs will I have? 

Flights, travel insurance, visa, souvenirs & spending money.

Trip itinerary


Once you’ve touched down at Valencia airport, your transfer will take you to your accommodation in the city. If you’ve given yourself a few days between your arrival and the course starting, use this time to get acquainted with the city and your new classmates/homestay hosts! Valencia is an amazing city, so try to make the most of it straight away!

Day 1

On your first day, you'll run through your orientation. This will include information about the school, classes, study methods, Spanish culture and daily life in Spain.  Then dive straight into your class! You’ll undertake a two-hour Spanish class in the afternoon, followed by an optional city tour to get you acclimatised and start bonding with your classmates.


You’ll be heading to the school every day for either a two-hour class if you opt for the standard, or a four-hour class if you go for the intense. These classes are subject to your class level and schedule and will probably change through your stay.  The school’s concept of teaching differentiates them from traditional Spanish classes. They provide much more personal lessons that are easy to follow and are not limited to any barriers. The methodology is based on continuous practice in a pleasant and fun way, both inside and outside of class by immersing you in everything around you, getting you to discover the city while practising Spanish, rather than just confining you to a classroom and giving you an unforgettable experience. With this in mind, you will take loads of different little trips with your class to experience Valencia and practice your Spanish. Visit the beautiful Turia Park and City of Arts and Sciences, experience the best museums in the city, the Museum of Enlightenment and Modernity, Valencian Institute of Modern Arts and Centre of Contemporary Culture El Carmen. You will also visit the beautiful Oceanogràfic and explore the delights of Museo Fallero, not to mention a few drinks as you navigate the Spanish language skills needed in bars and restaurants.  Your weekends are yours to explore the city, or go further around Spain! If you’d like to go on a more in-depth trip around the country, let your course leader know and they can try to rearrange classes.  We’ll constantly keep in touch with you throughout your stay. If at any point during your trip you need advice or support, our team will be on hand to answer all your questions. Don’t forget you can jump on our social media pages too or buzz our 24/7 emergency support line for urgent matters.

Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more!

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together!

But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
