The main building of the language school occupies 6 floors of a large corner building (see slideshow, above), which has a distinctive, triangular shape (somewhat similar to the famous 'flat-iron' building in New York).
The building dates back to the very early 20th century and has many attractive features: a very decorative street entrance, lots of natural light, high ceilings and some cool tiled floors, etc.
The main reception area is located on the ground floor (floor B), just inside the entrance.
Just over the road, you’ll find our new annex which includes classrooms, an auditorium for 100 people and our Courses Abroad Department. “New” is a manner of speaking: it in fact dates back to 1910, as you will see from the Modernista façade.
