IEMA was founded in 1989. The school is located in the historic city centre.

IEMA is the only school in Ávila that has been accredited by the Spanish Government, and therefore, meets the conditions established by the Sistema de Acreditación de Centros Instituto Cervantes, the only international official accreditation that is exclusively focused on teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

If you want to improve your fluency and immerse in the Spanish way of life, IEMA in Ávila is the right place for you!

 Culture and communication

Having knowledge of just grammar or vocabulary is not enough: you need to be able to successfully communicate with others.

Therefore, as a part of our language instruction, we make you understand the background of Spanish culture and society. You will learn the day to day lives of Spaniards and practical communicational tools and strategies.


Homestay provides the opportunity for real cultural immersion. We strongly recommend you to stay with a host family during your time with us. Many of our host families have been working with us for over 20 years and guarantee for a lot of experience.

Staying with a family will give you an amazing opportunity to practise your Spanish while experiencing any aspect of the Spanish lifestyle.

There is also the possibility of staying in a nearby hotel, hostel or apartment if you prefer.
