Expanish Spanish School Accreditations and Recommendations

Expanish, in Buenos Aires, is accredited and recommended by various organizations and government bodies around the world including Lonely Planet and the BBC.

What Is an Accreditation?

An accreditation is a form of quality assurance. It is a process whereby a Spanish school is checked to make sure it meets certain standards. Accredited bodies are there to protect Spanish students and ensure they receive the highest quality service from schools. An accrediting body is an organization that checks schools and awards accreditation when it is satisfied quality standards are meet. Accreditation is an internationally recognized mark of quality and only the schools offering the best service become accredited schools

When accrediting bodies check an Spanish school they make sure it has:

  • Qualified Spanish language teachers.
  • A school premises with properly-equipped classrooms, areas for relaxation and a good environment for learning.
  • Suitable accommodation, which is regularly inspected for safety and suitability.
  • Proper 24-hour supervision of young learners on junior programmes.
  • Advertising and marketing which accurately reflects the service it provides.

Why choose an accredited school

To ensure you receive the highest standard of service, professional care and teaching. In addition, choosing an accredited school means that the institution is considered to be authentic by immigration officials. In some cases, student visas are granted only to students at accredited Spanish schools

Accredited schools are re-inspected every few years, and each year a number of accredited schools, selected at random, undergo unannounced interim visits. This means that accredited schools can not let the level of service they provide slip and must maintain their standards

Expanish Accreditations

Our accreditation proves that our school meets the highest standards. Our schools have teachers who have appropriate qualifications and are given sufficient support to ensure that their lessons meet your needs. Your requirements for security, care, information and leisure activities are met; your accommodation is suitable and your overall well-being is our main concern
