The language school in Malaga / Alhaurin de la Torre
Our Spanish summer courses take place in our local school. Our language courses are attended by students from all over the world and have been designed specifically for young people, who are visiting a foreign country for a short period. Maximum class size is 15. All teachers are native speakers and qualified in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Teaching material is provided, and has been carefully compiled and selected for originality, content and relevance to young people, so your Spanish will quickly improve.
You’ll take a placement test upon arrival, which determines your course level. The following levels are catered for: elementary (A1), lower intermediate (A2), intermediate (B1), upper intermediate (B2), advanced (C1). At the end of the course, you’ll receive a certificate indicating your language level according to the Common European Framework of Reference Levels.
