SILA is the official language academy of Sotogrande International School and our aim is to provide the best experience in foreign language learning, through our team of native speaking, qualified teachers. Whether you are just beginning your language studies or looking to advance to the next level we have classes to suit everyone. Our lessons are specifically planned and tailored to meet the specific needs of the class and individuals. At SILA we include sessions for young learners, teenagers and adults. Language levels are assessed prior to joining to ensure students enter at the correct level and get the most out of every lesson.

Multilingualism has become more than just ‘important’. Speaking a foreign language has evolved to be extremely beneficial, whether viewed from the financial or social aspect. Being able to communicate in a foreign language helps to make real connections with people, provides an insight into different cultures, and opens doors in the world of job opportunities.
