Enforex Alicante is located in a privileged location next to the promenade and the beach Postiguet in the historic center of town. The Mediterranean-style building, modern and spacious, seats 120 students. This gives it a unique identity. It is well connected by public transportation: buses and trams. It has a team of qualified teachers with specific training and experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
Our students take intensive courses and follow a communicative approach, which allows them to communicate in Spanish from the first weeks. They also receive personalized attention from the team of professors and academic counseling by the coordinator.
