MALAGA – language school
Travel and Study all Around the World

MALAGA

Málaga is a typical Spanish city. In Málaga you hear Spanish being spoken, you eat Spanish food, you drink Spanish wine and you listen to Spanish music.

 

Málaga is a beautiful city located on the Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun) in Autonomous Community of Andalusia, Spain. The combination of Mediterranean climate and nearby mountains offers the visitors the perfect weather to enjoy the magic of this city. Málaga has something for everyone – from the old town and the fortress and wonderful museums to beaches and numerous restaurants and cafes with stunning views. With its rich art scene, it’s no wonder that Málaga is the birth city of the famous painter Pablo Picasso and renowned actor Antonio Banderas.

During 2015, Malaga gained an enormous amount of high quality press coverage: The Times, The Guardian, The Boston Globe, etc.

Málaga has added more famous brands from the art world (the Pompidou Centre and the Russian State Museum from St Petersburg) to its existing impressive portfolio, (Picasso, Thyssen etc).

But Malaga is not only for art lovers.

Our students especially enjoy the following 3 areas:

  • Pedregalejo Beach: just 10 minutes walk from the school – this fisherman’s «barrio» is a favourite amongst the students and locals of all ages. Everyone loves the Bohemian environment created by the stands selling handmade crafts, the authentic «chirringuitos» (fish restaurants), the steak and pizza restaurants, the cocktail bars for a sundowner, the new tapas bar and the opportunities for jogging, working out, etc.
  • Historic Centre: this simply continues to improve with new bars and restaurants opening regularly. The latest trend is for roof terraces on the city centre hotels from where you can view the cathedral, Roman Amphitheatre, the Alcazaba, the Picasso Museum and so on.
  • Muelle Uno: Malaga’s new marina where you can have a drink in the bar while enjoying the spectacular view across the water to the historic buildings of the city centre, beautifully illuminated at night!

 

We have prepared for you some great programs:

 

SUMMER PROGRAM 1

 

If you are 14 – 20 years old, this is the perfect summer program for you in a small-school environment with none of the disadvantages of a small

school  placed in a very elegant building in a beautiful large garden located across the road from Mediterranean beaches.

 

This is a classic vacation combination of the Intensive Course with a package of social, cultural and sporting activities. Take a chance, learn/improve your language, visit Málaga, take part in a historical tour, learn the culture by trying the typical food with the Evening tapas tour or dinner on the beach, take the Cookery lesson and tasting, challenge yourself with the Body Combat on the terrace of the school, etc… Every weekend there are full-day excursions and there are also frequent opportunities to participate in full weekend excursions to Morocco.

 

Type of Accommodation:

 

HOST FAMILIES: single or twin rooms on a half-board basis. Excellent families organised by the school staff in the centralised administration office – they have around 80 host families – many more than any small school could have!

 

STUDENT APARTMENTS: single or twin rooms on a self-catering basis. These are comfortable but fairly basic apartments, usually shared between 4 or 5 of students. The minimum age to choose this form of accommodation is 18 years.

 

SUMMER PROGRAM 2

 

If you are 16+ years old, and you would like to have an unforgettable vacation, this is the perfect choice! It is a classic combination of language course with a program of cultural, social and sporting activities, and is a lot of fun!

 

The activities program is scheduled during the morning and can include, beach sports, cookery classes, walks through historic Málaga, parties and boat trips amongst others.

 

Despite all the activities, this is a serious language course and the students still have to complete daily homework assignments.

 

Type of Accommodation:

 

IMPORTANT: WiFi available in all accommodation. From January 2016 all host families and student apartments will have WiFi.

 

RESIDENCE

It is in the same building as the school, making up a mini-campus with classrooms, library, multimedia room, halls, sports and dance room, 24/7 reception, restaurant, swimming pool, terraces, cultural activities department and laundry.

All rooms have a private bathroom, safe, telephone and free Wi-Fi and include cleaning service.

 

APARTMENTS

All apartments have a shared living room, kitchen, bathrooms and domestic appliances. There is no extra charge for utilities (swimming pool, etc.)

 

HOST FAMILIES: Practice your Spanish. Eat Spanish food. When we assign you a family, we take into account your preferences (vegetarian diet, pets, no smokers, animals, etc.)

Hosting families provide accommodation and half board (breakfast and lunch). If you would rather have dinner, perhaps you can reach an agreement with them, but in Spain the main meal is lunch and that is when everybody will gather together and you will get a better chance of practicing your Spanish.
