Spanish course in Nerja, Spain
Nerja is just perfect if you're looking for beautiful coastal town in southern Spain, with secluded beaches, friendly locals and fantastic weather! It's an ideal choice if you want to learn Spanish, because being a small town, people are friendly. So, you'll have lots of opportunities to stop and chat with local people, putting into practise the Spanish that you learn on your course. But Nerja is much more than just another small town on the coast. It has a unique charm of its own, with narrow winding streets, typical white-washed houses, flowers everywhere - and continuous sunshine!
Nerja enjoys a really special 'Micro-climate', with warm sunny winters, due the protection of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the north, and summer temperatures which never get too hot because of the cooling sea breezes off the Mediterranean. Nerja's year-round warm sunny climate simply could not be better! And, because of Nerja's location in Andalusia, it is easy to visit beautiful cities like Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Ronda, at any time of year, returning to Nerja at the end of the day, to relax at the beach and enjoy this simply unique location.
