Welcome to Instituto Hispánico de Murcia, the No. 1 Spanish courses provider in Murcia County. We are the only specialists in teaching the Spanish language to foreigners in Murcia, with 20 years of experience.
Why study with us? All Spanish schools offer something obvious: high quality courses, experienced and awesome teachers, the best social activity programme ever, the opportunity of enjoying life as Spanish people do... So do we, but we add three magic ingredients: experience, fun and an OUTSTANDING team.
And because we are specialists in what we do, we do it well!
We don´t suffer from the so-called bigness complex, so don´t expect a big school. Although we can only hold up to 40 students at one time, we use this to our advantage, to offer a personal service that really counts to ensure the best results.
Having said that, remember we offer all Spanish levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages!
Since our school´s opening in August 2000 and after receiving our first student in January 8th 2001, my dad´s birthday, we have welcomed more than 6000 people. I will always remember our first student, Wendy Leavesly, from Australia, and all the efforts and hope the whole team put into this project to make it real... and better everyday.
From welcoming 68 students in 2001 to more than 900 in 2016, collaborating with more than 100 agencies now, international companies and universities and schools all over the world, we are growing and achieving great success despite any support - and I do not mean money - from local authorities such us Murcia City Council, Comunidad Autónoma de Murcia, or Instituto de Turismo de la Región de Murcia. Indeed we are growing without any help from them!
Despite the worldwide crisis, 2013 - 2016 were our more successful years in terms of number of students bookings and agreements signed with international companies. Crisis? What crisis? I´d rather say SUCCESS!
We are a recognised Examination Centre by The Foundation for the Development of and Research into Spanish Culture FIDESCU holding of the exams for the International Diploma in Spanish (D.I.E.), recognised by the Swedish Goverment CSN, by the German government throughout their BILDUNGSURLAUB programmes, we collaborate with local and regional authorities in terms of international promotion, and we are an accredited school by the SICTED recognition since 2008. SICTED is a project to improve the quality of tourism destinations promoted by the Tourism Institute of Spain (TURESPAÑA) and the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP), which works with companies and tourist services with ultimate goal of improving the tourist experience.
Also, we collaborate with EURODYSÉE, an exchange programme of the Assembly of European Regions (AER), we are founding members of TURLINGUA and recognised members of FUNDACIÓN TRIPARTITA, a Spanish state foundation responsible for promoting and coordinating the implementation of public policies on vocational training in the field of employment and labor relations.
Having said all this, our biggest satisfaction is the personal attention we provide our students as well as the friendly atmosphere everyone finds in our school. Just have a look at people`s faces shown in this website! They speak for themselves.
