Founded in 1984, Academia Zeus is a pioneer in the field of professional training here in Ronda.  We are based in the very centre of our city, and we can count on the biggest and most modern of installations (interactive digital blackboards, projectors, air conditioning, sound equipment, Wifi, &c.).

Our team of professionals offers vast teaching experience in language learning, including courses in Spanish for Foreigners adapted to all age groups, needs and levels of ability.

We guarantee the quality of all our courses, being as we are the only educational centre in the Serranía of Ronda which has earned the inter-national certificates of quality ISO 9001 ISO 14001, as well as being an Official Examination Centre of Trinity College, London.  We can help you obtain your official qualification in the English language.

Being experts in training and education, we have as our main objective an innovative and dynamic Spanish learning experience, achieved through total linguistic and cultural immersion, which will ensure that your stay with us will be an unforgettable experience.

Learning a language involves much more than simply mastering grammar and vocabulary.  You need to live it. This is why all our courses include out-of-classroom activities, enabling you to continue using your Spanish at the same time as you are enjoying our country-side, culture and cuisine. Tapas nights, picnic excursions and visits to the most enchanting corners of our city … we’ll make sure that you feel, every moment that you’re with us, as if you’re in your own home!

Learn the Spanish that suits your needs in a fun and practical way through our ELE programme of courses, adapted to your availability and level.  We offer our students personal attention.

Our lessons have a maximum of 8 students per classroom, because we know the

importance of small-group teaching, including one-to-one work.

We will visit two caves:

Cueva de la Pileta:

Situated 22km from Ronda, this cave is the site of a prehistoric settlement, with Palaeolithic wall art and some Neolithic remains. The Cave contains numerous paintings and carvings, and has been declared a National Monument and a Site of Cultural Interest.

The public is permitted to enter 500 metres into the Cave, but must be accompanied at all times by a guide. Journey back 30,000 years into antiquity!

Cueva del Gato:

Located 15km from Ronda, this Cave was formed by water erosion. It is the most important cave system of its type in Andalucía, with chasms, lakes, syphons, canyons and chambers, some of which reach up to 70 metres in height. The system is a total of 7,818 metres in length, but our visit is restricted to the exit, because to explore the interior requires speliological equipment. It is an incomparable site, with crystral-clear water.
