Dear friends,


You must know:

  • As of October 2021 the minimum distance between students in public and private schools is 1.20 m.

  • As of April 20, 2022, the use of face masks is no longer mandatory in schools. However, we recommend to continue to use the mask when the minimum distance of 1.2 m between people cannot be respected or when students do exercises in pairs or groups in the classroom.

  • Until further notice, all social activities are suspended.




Advantages of staying at our accommodation:

making new friends


Staying in any of the residences of Gran Canaria School offers you the advantage of living with the other students of the school and sharing their company during meals and excursions.


This facilitates friendship between all of them and puts into practice the use of Spanish as a common language, as excursions, groups and gatherings to go out for dinners, meetings on the beach, car rental, hiking, etc, will be composed of students of different levels and nationalities. Thus, although you may only visit the school for 1 to 2 weeks, you will not feel lonely because you will be integrated from the first day in the group of all students living in the residence.



The Gran Canaria School's policy is not only to teach efficiently but to create a club of lovers of the Spanish language which will result that your stay will not only be profitable but will also make you feel happy during your stay with us. And we hope this will encourage you to repeat your stay with us.


Especially important is to participate at your first Sunday dinner because there you will meet other students of our residences and we will provide you some information about the school and the city.
