Study Spanish courses in Malaga (Spain)

Malaga is a city that gets better every day! Everyone who comes to visit for the first time in a while comments on how nice it is and every time we show people the city we discover something new. It is in a very exciting phase in its development and a perfect place for your students of all ages.

According to the EU’s EuroBarometer, Malaga is the top city in Spain for quality of life.

The latest development is the fabulous “marina” of Muelle Uno in the port of Malaga – a waterfront development with bars, restaurants and shops overlooking births for luxury yachts with the architectural splendours of Malaga in the background – Cathedral, Alcazaba, Castillo de Gibralfaro and the town hall – truly stunning!

TripAdvisor rates Malaga as number 3 destination in Spain for city breaks.

It is a medium-sized city (around 600,000) and while it has the infrastructures and facilities of a major city, it is “manageable” and tends not to have the problems that can be associated with larger cities. It is also a city where the inhabitants speak Spanish as their first language!
