Get to know the best small school in Barcelona!
From our language school in beautiful Barcelona, we provide immersive, small-group English and Spanish courses that embrace the following core ideas:
Languages4Life was launched in 2011 by John MacPeek, a language enthusiast originally from New York. John speaks six languages (English, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, German, French) and is currently working on adding a seventh (Greek). It was this lifelong passion for language that inspired the school, and its name.
The school combines cutting-edge modern technology with small-group learning to give students the personalized Spanish and English language education they deserve, with the cultural benefits of Barcelona offering an immeasurable bonus.
In 2012 Richard Davie joined John at the Languages4Life facility, offering English teacher training courses through TEFL Iberia. Accredited by Trinity College London, TEFL Iberia trains ESL English teachers and provides them with full Trinity CertTESOL qualification.
Initially, the program was run independently of Languages4Life, sharing only the physical location, but it quickly became evident that John and Richard also shared the same vision. Today, TEFL Iberia is a key part of Languages4Life.
In 2015, the school added another exciting new component when Maria Blanco and ELE Barcelona joined the team. Using the TEFL Iberia template, ELE Barcelona provides Spanish language teacher training in small groups.
The creative, passionate teacher training at ELE provided the finishing touch to Languages4Life’s Spanish Department and has significantly improved the school’s ability to provide post-graduation job opportunities in Barcelona, not to mention practice opportunities with real Spanish students.
What’s better than three great language schools operating under one shared roof with a similar set of goals and values? Three great language schools joining forces to make the learning experience better for everyone.
This new, improved incarnation of Languages4Life incorporates the teacher training elements of TEFL Iberia and ELE Barcelona while maintaining the original mandate of small groups, personalised lessons, and attentive customer care.
The best part about all this? We’re just getting started!
We know that everybody learns differently. That’s why we always go above and beyond to ensure that each student gets the personalised training they deserve.
