The School

I.D.E.A. Language School is situated in the old town of La Calera, one of the most beautiful on the Canary Islands.

La Calera is the administrative centre of Valle Gran Rey, the most picturesque region of La Gomera.

The school house was built at the beginning of last century, and originally housed the region's hospital. It has kept its original generous proportions, typical for buildings of that time. You can still observe the high roofs and mosaic floors today.

The school house affords spectacular views of the sea over the banana plantations, and the valley towards the mountains. Its terrace affords breathtaking views of the sunset every evening.

Our Intensive Spanish courses and Extra-intensive courses take place all year-round from Monday to Friday between 10:00 am and 1:30 pm, and are taught at four levels, Elementary, Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced.

I.D.E.A. Language School provides you with all the teaching and learning materials you need to successfully complete your course, and you can borrow any additional material you require from our in-house library. Lessons are supplemented with a rich variety of cultural information.

Certainly, you will not find a more agreeable way to learn Spanish than during a holiday on the beautiful island of La Gomera in combination with the qualified teaching of the language school in La Calera.
The school´s teaching team will give you any information required and is looking forward to meeting you.
