Spanish course in Malaga

Malaga is a fantastic location for studying Spanish and learning more about the culture, as it is a very typically Spanish city not spoilt by tourism, despite having such long, sandy beaches. Home to around 20 museums, as well as many theatres, art galleries and historical monuments, Malaga certainly has plenty to offer those interested in Spanish culture. 

Despite all this, Malaga has escaped becoming an overly ‘touristy’ location, as most foreign holidaymakers tend to stay in the other tourist destinations along the Costa del Sol. 

This means that Malaga has retained its ‘typically’ Spanish character, and this, plus the friendly and welcoming nature of the locals makes it the perfect location to practice speaking Spanish with native speakers on an everyday basis.
