  • CLIC International House Cádiz

    CLIC International House has just opened new premises in Bahía Blanca in the provincial capital of Cádiz. The property comprises 700m2 on two floors – the main floor and a top floor/terrace.

    The new school has 12 classrooms all equipped with a multimedia projector or smart TV, free wifi, air-conditioning and central heating. All the classrooms have natural light and furniture designed to make learning a second language more comfortable.

    The top floor also has a professional kitchen for cookery classes and a spacious student lounge with a café which is used for the cultural programme activities and for language exchange amongst CLIC students.

    The enormous 200m2 terrace next to the student lounge is definitely the area that the students enjoy the most. It is equipped with outdoor furniture and hammocks and students can have a coffee between classes and prepare work for the following day with their fellow classmates. Or simply read a book. Views from the new CLIC premises are spectacular.

    As they say on their webpage: Many things have happened since 1991 when a small group of teachers decided to get together at International House Barcelona to exchange experiences in a newly developing professional environment: Spanish has made great advances everywhere, we have all learned a lot, Spanish as a Foreign Language has become a dynamic speciality with amazing professionals and research has been consolidated.

    Happy anniversary!
