09/05/2021: ‘End of alarm state’. Join us in Granada!
End of alarm state. Join us here in Granada!
On May 9th, 2021, the state of alarm in Spain ended. This means the end of the night curfew and perimeter closures. There is total mobility in Spain and everything is open. The school remains open and we continue to teach our students both face-to-face and online. The vaccination pace is very fast and soon we will all be vaccinated. We are optimistic. We are waiting for you. Join us!
All the best
The CastiLa Team
5/06/2020: ‘Lets go ahead’, back to classrooms on August 3rd
We go ahead
Remission of coronavirus disease begins. The Spanish government has just announced the opening of borders from July 1. It is true that in Granada the data has been less aggressive than in other parts of Spain, but in CastiLa we are still very attentive to its development and we have set a date for the reopening of classroom courses: August 3rd.
We are now analyzing all details and working to return to the extraordinary normality of CastiLa with all the necessary security. At the moment, by establishing the best protocol (administrative and health security) and adapting the school to return in 2 months to the wonderful experiences of the past 32 years.
We therefore continue to be in contact with students and collaborating institutions. Sometimes we will send you direct messages but, please follow us on the website and on social networks to stay up to date on how CastiLa wants to get our old extraordinary normality back, with all the guarantees.
14/03/2020: ‘Hard times’, just courses on line!
Times are hard because of Covid-19. These are times when solidarity consists of staying at home, reducing mobility, increasing social distance… We are suffering an epidemic. Or rather, we are suffering a pandemic, the most terrible thing for those of us who have always opted to cross borders and communicate personally. But we understand that in these cases you must protect yourself in order to protect the rest. As on few occasions, individual protection is a way to achieve collective protection. We have to survive, to go back to those times when, now we do know, we had everything to be happy.
From here, let us ask you to take care of yourself. We want to go on sharing and enjoying with you as many moments as we have enjoyed in these 32 years of courses and cultural immersion in Granada with CastiLa. And, in case you need anything, we are on the other end of the line.
These are times when CastiLa can only serve you online; it allows us to persist in our core idea and also to remind you that, now more than ever, my home is your home.
A big hug.
The CastiLa team.

The best of CastiLa, doubtlessly our students
“CastiLa, una intensa experiencia de aprendizaje, dentro y fuera de clase”.
“Los profesores están altamente cualificados y llenos de pasión por su lengua. Todos se hacen amigos, tanto los estudiantes como los profesores. No importa tu nivel, hablarás, comerás, vivirás y soñarás en español.”
“Hay tantas cosas que decir sobre CastiLa, no sólo sobre sus numerosas actividades sino sobre todas esas pequeñas cosas que forman parte de su alma: los chistes internos, los desayunos en el mirador de San Nicolás, la amistad entre profesores y alumnos… ¿Cómo hablar de sólo una de esas cosas? CastiLa es un mundo en sí mismo”.
“Profesores profesionales, capacitados, amables, una escuela en lo alto de una colina, al sol, una oportunidad de compartir el estilo de vida a la española. ¿Que más se puede pedir como estudiante de español?”.
“My wife and I just concluded 4 weeks studying at Castila. It’s a fantastic school — excellent professors, carefully thought-out pedagogy, enjoyable activities outside of class that bolster skills, all in a wonderful setting in our favorite neighborhood in Granada. We learned and improved a great deal and plan to return when we can for continued study. We also greatly enjoyed the sense of community that is fostered among the students and faculty. This contributed to both the enjoyment and effectiveness of the experience.
We stayed briefly in Madrid before starting the school, and are back now in Madrid 4 weeks later. This has demonstrated to us how much we have learned — how much our comprehension has improved and how much more comfortable and confident we are speaking in Spanish. ¡Muchas gracias, Castila! “
