About IH Tarragona
IH Tarragona was opened in 1980. The school building is on a broad tree-lined avenue (the Rambla) in the very centre of the city. The school is spread over two floors of a typical town house and there are 10 spacious classrooms as well as a study area and students' lounge.
The school offers English classes to students from the local population throughout the year and Spanish courses in the summer – in collaboration with IH Barcelona.
Our Spanish for teenagers course takes place in Tarragona, a pleasant coastal resort approximately 100 km south of Barcelona (86 km from the airport). Tarragona is a provincial capital and has a population of around 115,000. It is situated on the Costa Dorada and is an ideal location for a teenage program of this kind. The town is lively, but not too big; it has its own sandy beaches within walking distance of the school; it is very close to Port Aventura (one of Europe's largest theme parks) and is only an hour from Barcelona by bus or train.
The course - which includes a full social program - is run as a joint venture between IH Barcelona and IH Tarragona. The Director, Jane Delaney, and her team have extensive experience of organising junior courses and dealing with younger students as a large majority of IH Tarragona's language students are under the age of 17.
