OUR STORY



We love art.
We love language.

We connect people
through art and language.

The Art of Language was founded in 2014 with the aim to improve intercultural understanding and communication by promoting art as a tool for language learning. Throughout the year, we organise English/Spanish courses and Art events where students learn and exchange languages while enjoying art together.

We believe and have experienced that learning Spanish/English is much easier and more fun when you´re reading or talking about something that inspires you. When you have just seen a beautiful film at the cinema or met someone with the exact same music taste as you, you stop caring about making grammar mistakes. You just want to talk!

Art encourages us to express ourselves, helps us to understand each other and inspires us to share our thoughts and ideas. And that´s what learning Spanish/English should be about: about feeling comfortable and excited to share your ideas, experiences and stories - and connecting with those who speak your language. And don´t worry about grammar or pronunciation. We will help you with that!

Since 2014, we have been very grateful to have welcomed more than 500 students (designers, photographers, actors, doctors, art directors, teachers, students, actors, engineers, mothers, boyfriends, friends, colleagues…) from all over the world (England, Chile, Australia, South-Africa, Argentina, The United States, Holland, China, Ireland, Colombia, Italy, Turkey…) and we hope to continue doing so in the future!

Why don´t you join us? :)
