Where do I apply from?

You can apply for the Spanish student visa from your country of origin or directly from Spain. We recommend to do it from your home country, because in this case the process is easier and usually cheaper.

If you want to apply from Spain, please contact us by email info@bcnlip.com or leave a message through our contact form, we will explain you some tricky things. Without knowing them you have high risks of getting a denial. Please, contact us in advance, because there are documents that you need to bring from your home country, and it takes time to get them.

What is the application process?

The process is almost the same in all countries and cities. Here are the main steps you need to follow:

  1. Watch our videos with the detailed explanations on every topic.

  2. Do the exercises together with the teacher and check yourself.

  3. Practice with your friends and keep moving on with the next videos!

The process can be slightly different depending on your country and city. We recommend to contact the consulate in your country/city to check all the details.

Meet your teacher: Dani Broncano!

Dani was born in a small village near Badajoz, Extremadura. He studied Audiovisual Communications and before long, guided by his love of the literary world, went on to train at “Escuela de Escritores Ateneu Barcelonés” (Barcelona) as a creative writer specializing in poetry, novels and short stories.

He began teaching over the course of two years spent living in Athens, Greece. He trained as a Spanish language teacher for adults and children and went on to continue his teaching career in Holland, where he taught in an academy for over two years.

Dani is a lover of languages, audiovisual art, writing and literature. Now at BCN LIP, he has found the opportunity to bring together two of his great passions: the world of audiovisuals and Spanish teaching.
