About don Quijote's Spanish schools
don Quijote was established in 1986 as a language travel agency representing Spanish language schools. The company's single-minded dedication to service and quality fueled its rapid growth and we quickly earned a reputation for innovation, personalized service and excellence. In 1989, responding to the growing demand for high quality Spanish language courses, we began welcoming students to the first don Quijote school, in Salamanca. Since our founding, we have grown to seven company-owned locations in Spain and Latin America and a network of more than 30 partner schools, largely through the recommendation of more than 150,000 satisfied students.
At don Quijote, our watchwords are Quality, Innovation and Partnership. While we continue to lead - in academics, value and innovation - we constantly seek out new ways to take the quality of our courses and our service to our students to the next level.
