Why learn Spanish in Málaga?
Málaga is the ideal city to learn Spanish for many reasons
In addition to the quality of teaching in its educational centres, the quality of life and the leisure possibilities that the city offers students are, without a doubt, decisive. These are some of the reasons why Málaga is the ideal place to learn the language of Cervantes.
Málaga enjoys an average annual temperature of 19 degrees Celsius and more than 300 days of sunshine a year, making it a true paradise for visitors. The winters are mild and the summers, with a maximum of 30 degrees, are great for enjoying the beaches and Mediterranean life.
Málaga is one of the best connected Spanish cities by land, sea and air. It has an extensive network of motorways, port terminals, a high-speed train connected to the main points of the country and an international airport that links the capital of Málaga with more than a hundred cities and more than thirty destinations.
Málaga is in vogue as a cultural city and surprises the student with its extensive cultural heritage, the result of its historical past, where different civilisations left their mark and bequeathed their cosmopolitan character to the city. But it is also a cultural destination of the first order thanks to the more than 40 museums that can be seen, such as the Carmen Thyssen Museum, the Centre Pompidou Málaga, the Russian Museum Collection of Málaga, the Picasso Museum Málaga or the Centre of Contemporary Art.
Sun and beach
One of the main attractions of Málaga is its coastline, with different urban beaches that offer all kinds of services and are easily accessible. In the city, there are different urban beaches, such as La Malagueta, just 10 minutes from the centre, La Caleta, Pedregalejo, El Palo and Misericordia beach, among others.
When the sun begins to set, the fun begins in the different terraces and pubs in the city centre, on Muelle Uno or the Paseo Marítimo de Pedregalejo, among other places. In many of these establishments, language exchange meetings are held.
In addition, there are numerous rooftops where you can enjoy cocktails, aperitifs, great views and a modern and youthful atmosphere. In addition, throughout the year you can enjoy concerts in local venues as well as larger venues, music, dance and theatre festivals.
Málaga's gastronomy is the result of its history and traditions, to which are added the trends of the new Mediterranean cuisine. The sea and the mountains offer their best products, which are offered in the typical tapas or the most popular stews, accompanied by local wines.
Anchovies, horse mackerel and red mullet, together with squid or octopus, make an excellent Málaga fried fish dish in the “chiringuitos” (beach bars). Another good choice is “espetos”, which consists of skewering the sardines on a rod that is stuck over the embers of a fire so that the smoke does not affect the fish.
Málaga offers a wide range of possibilities for practising sports as a way of occupying leisure time. The year-round climate makes the city an ideal place for outdoor sports such as jogging, mountain biking, beach volleyball or water sports such as rowing or surfing.
Sailing is also popular, and you can even hire equipment. The same goes for jet skis and other water sports. There are also numerous facilities for playing football, basketball, tennis or paddle tennis, among other sports, and centres where a wide variety of group classes are given.
