About Us

Teaching since 1995; it all started in the village La Herradura in Southern Spain. After a few years of working at several language schools, we started our own school. During the 27 years we have been operating, we have created a professional educational project that relies on the support and confidence of important businesses in the sector and most importantly on the thousands of students who have passed through our classrooms. More and more foreign students are opting to start or extend their Spanish studies in Uruguay. We invite you to join us, and a valuable and unforgettable experience at La Herradura Spanish schools is guaranteed. Come and join us as well!

Make your stay in Uruguay a very special one by attending a Spanish course at our schools La Herradura in Montevideo, Punta del Este, or at Cortijo La Herradura in the countryside.


It’s one of the smallest and safest countries in South America. Uruguay’s biggest attraction is its coastline, which boasts endless sandy beaches and tiny fishing villages. Even inland, the network of streams and rivers means that you’re never far from somewhere to swim or enjoy water sports. The landscape’s gentle hills, pampas plains, marshland and woodland are great for enjoying nature and spotting wildlife, and the relatively sparse population makes for stunning night skies unspoiled by the lights and smog of big cities. Uruguay enjoys a high level of education and good sanitation standards – tap water is drinkable throughout the country. Montevideo has all the nightlife, culture and facilities you would expect to find in a capital city, within an urban area compact enough to navigate on foot. Furthermore, connections are easy and quick to Uruguay’s gigantic Neighbours, Argentina and Brazil.
