Set in a beautiful natural bay, Palma has been the capital of Mallorca for over 1,000 years. It was already a prosperous city when it formed part of the Moorish empire and James I is supposed to have described it as the most beautiful city he had ever seen after he conquered Palma in 1229. Modern Palma is a bustling city with a population of just over 300,000. The city has an extraordinarily beautiful Gothic Quarter and many fine monuments and squares. The principle attraction is the golden toned cathedral, which was built over a 300-year period following the conquest and still dominates the skyline overlooking the harbour. Modern Palma is also a cosmopolitan city with a lively arts scene and nightlife to suit any taste. Palma is historical and liberal, Spanish and cosmopolitan, and nearly always sunny. The school is located just off Paseo Mallorca, it is a 10-minutes walk to the historical old centre and 15 minutes by bus to go to the beach. IH Palma was established in 1987 and, like IH Barcelona, has 4 main areas of activity: 1. Teaching Spanish to students from all over the world. 2. Teaching English, German, and French to the local population. 3. Training teachers of English. 4. Sending students from Spain to study languages abroad. The school has a staff of between 15-20 and is widely considered to be the leading language school on the island.
“Die Akademie” language school was born in 1998. “Die Akademie” is an international school with students from around the world. “Die Akademie” is located in Palma’s historic center and is very near to the emblematic Palma Cathedral. In Amongst coffee shops and culturally interesting buildings, the city center offers historic charm, such as our academy that is located in a XVI century building. Generally, the academy teachers are native speakers and they have years of experience teaching languages. Thanks to the fact that our teachers base their lessons on the “superlearning” method, the learning process is quicker, more pleasant, and more effective. The “superlearning” method is designed for learning in a relaxed and peaceful way, without pressure and in a stress-free atmosphere; this helps us to concentrate better and to record knowledge in our long-term memory. This is the most important aspect of our teacher´s teaching method. The lessons are focused on daily life aspects: job, studies, hobies, etc., but also, in some cases, the lessons are introduced to the students as a fun way of learning a new language. With the help of classical music and melodic sentences, the knowledge is repeated and memorized. This relaxing moment allows us to learn in an effective and quick way.
The School welcomes all those who wish to learn or improve their level of Spanish and offers the guarantee and certification of excellence and quality that only the University of Salamanca can provide. The School is located in the very centre of Palma, five minutes from the intermodal station (rail, metro, bus). This is a privileged location, just a few metres from the Plaza de España, “Parc de les estacions”, and El Corte Inglés Department Store, as well as the main offices of the most important banks in the Balearic Islands. Our students therefore have a wide range of leisure and cultural activities available nearby. ELE MALLORCA USAL is an examination center of Instituto Cervantes (DELE, CCSE, SIELE); recognised center for Bildungsurlaub training courses; and training center of the Tripartite Foundation.
