What began as two women’s dream on a bike ride one fateful night in Gràcia, blossomed into a dynamic learning community.
Collage was founded in 2005 as a creative learning space offering multi-disciplinary, hands-on English language learning programs. Collage’s goal has always been to remain small and dedicated to each and every student. We recognize the individual learning styles of everyone, regardless if they are 1 year-old or 65 years-old.
OUR MISSION & VISION
Our programs were created with the students in mind. A teacher:student ratio of no more than 1:5 coupled with maximum of 10 students in a class means that we are always able to individualize the learning experience for every student and allow them to progress at their own pace.
Our programs have been developed over a decade of hands-on experience, building programs that have proven effective to both learn English and respect every student’s learning style and rhythm. Our goal is for our students to assimilate English naturally and learn it fully, as well as having fun with it! Loving it. Seeing it as a tool, not as simply a line on their future CV.
At Collage we only hire native speaking, experienced teachers, however this is only the tip of the iceberg of what makes our teachers so amazing!
Collage teachers come from many different walks of life, but what brings us all together is a deep, shared feeling about the importance of hands-on learning; the love of teaching and learning alongside our students. A true belief in the benefits of real connection, of empathy, of taking the time to find what works for each and every one of our students. The energy, time and dedication that goes on behind the scenes speaks volumes to the success of our programs and to the smiles that happen in all of our classrooms!
Our teachers are the embodiment of “Do what you love” and, alongside teaching, they have rich and varied backgrounds and passions – fine arts, theatre, music, cooking, photography, sewing and much more – and we believe this adds to the richness and community aspect of Collage.
Located in the heart of Gràcia, Collage is a warm, friendly and welcoming space with a strong community feel and three large rooms adapted to each of our programs needs: the Little Actors theatre room, the Little Faces art room and the Dynamic English room.
Collage isn’t just about teaching English; it’s about bringing English to life!
COLLAGE IS... imagination, kindness, empowering, discovering, finding your voice, sunny, building, messy fun, bottled clouds, creativity, experiments, theatre and so much more!
