Why choose Funcarele

There are many reasons

There are a huge number of reasons why you should choose Funcarele as your Cartagena language school.

  • Teaching of the highest standard, especially adapted for you and your individual needs.

    We will be attentive to your wishes before, during and after your stay at our centre, and we will do everything possible to adapt to your unique situation, taking all details into account. In order to guarantee this and maintain our quality, all our departments are part of a continuous assessment programme undertaken by the Cervantes Institute as FUNCARELE has been accredited by Instituto Cervantes Cervantes. We also get Q for Tourism Quality.

  • University atmosphere.

    Our academic co-ordination is directly linked to the University of Cartagena, which has a large number of students and exchange programmes. At Funcarele we welcome young Erasmus students who come to study in this city. Studying with us, you can not only make use of the superb installations of Cartagena University, including its libraries, study rooms, dining facilities, common rooms etc., but you can also enjoy the university atmosphere, take part in its fiestas and the wide array of activities programmed for students.

  • A small school means personal attention.

    We are a small school, a fact which enables us to get to know all our students and offer a warm, friendly and attentive service. Our class sizes are minimal, with a maximum of 12 students per class, although class sizes are normally between 3 and 6 pupils. In addition, our administrative centre will help you to resolve any issues relating to your stay, and offer advice about activities available within the Region of Murcia, towns which can be visited, etc.

  • An incomparable location.

    The school installations are in the heart of the historic area of the city, within easy walking distance of everything: the three university campuses, the Roman Theatre, the former cathedral, museums, tourist information offices, post office, theatres and exhibition rooms, the auditorium, train and bus station, shops, gyms, banks, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, as well as the atmospheric waterside area of Cartagena. In short, all of the tourism activity in Cartagena takes place around the location of Funcarele. No other form of transport is needed; from here everything can be reached on foot.

  • Spanish online.

    Once your studies in Cartagena are concluded, you can continue to study Spanish from home. Yes, our Skype classes are just as effective and enjoyable as those undertaken in person. This way, you will never forget what you have learnt!

  • Free Spanish course for Erasmus students of the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena.

    All Erasmus students are entitled to 40 hours of Spanish tuition per semester, free of charge, at the Cartagena Polytechnic University (check course details for the University Community). Outside of the Erasmus programme, international students of the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena will receive a 20% discount on all our courses.

  • Facilities suitable for all.

    We welcome those with disabilities, as all our buildings are perfectly equipped for the access of those with disabilities. Our classrooms are also adapted for left-handed individuals. Internet and WiFi connection are free and available throughout our facilities.

  • Complementary services

    Lodgings and complementary activities are carefully selected and evaluated continuously in order to offer you a wide range of services. We are also able to offer help in obtaining visascollecting you from the airport, additional medical insurance, and postal services.

  • Reasonable prices both in the school and the city.

    You will have already realised that the school offers very competitive prices, but you can also benefit from local pricing to acquire whatever services you require to enjoy Cartagena. Living, eating and going out in Cartagena is much cheaper than doing the same thing in large cities. A small city offers small prices!
