SeaHaven is a well-established language school with two centres. Our first centre was opened in 1996 in Martos, the economic motor of the Jaén province, and our second centre was opened in 2006 in Jaén, the capital of the province. Martos is 15 kilometers from Jaén and it is connected by a regular bus service. Both centres are Cambridge English Preparation Centres, recognised Trinity exam centres and members of ACEIA and FECEI.

Our language schools have a strong local reputation and an underlying philosophy of providing quality English language tuition at affordable prices. All our premises are fully equiped with fibre optic internet connections, interactive whiteboards and well-resourced materials. The emphasis is to provide a positive learning environment for students and teachers.

We expect our teachers to be professional, fully committed to teaching and to motivating their students in class. In our aim to provide quality teaching we emphasise the need for professional development through internal and external training, in-house workshops and ongoing support from our team of dedicated teachers.
