Learn Spanish in Malaga
Learning Spanish in Malaga offers students a unique combination of a sophisticated language course and relaxing holiday in a charming and historical town.
Our language school in Malaga is a family-run business and one of the oldest and unique schools in the city. Modern learning techniques and internally developed educational materials are the assets language teachers here use to make the Spanish language classes very pleasant and effective. In addition to the classic elements of a language course such as vocabulary and grammar exercises in Spanish, interaction in Spanish really is at the heart of the language course here in Malaga. Carefully selected host families are of great help to the language students when it comes to learning more about the mentality and way of life in southern Spain. Apart from staying at the host families, students can also stay in shared apartments, residential quarters, or hotels.

Every evening, typical southern Spanish nightlife awakes in Malaga. Locals and visitors alike come together in the many tapas bars and cosy cafes.

And if you’re looking for a musical alternative to the traditional Flamenco bars, Malaga offers many modern clubs and bars too.

Distance to school, to the center of Malaga and the beach were perfect; Host mother and standard were very good.
Conclusion: Like last year in Dublin here everything was great, even better in Malaga, parents and students are once again very satisfied, thank you!
"All questions have been answered. The arrival details I got posted before the trip were good. The teachers are great! They know how to teach knowledge. The buildings were in good condition. The accommodation was good and affordable. Since I was living in the school residence, I had a very short walk to the school ;)"
"I was very pleased. All my questions have been clarified in advance. Decided for this trip very last-minute, it was very important to me to have a competent partner - and I had one! I really enjoyed the course, the staff of the school were very nice and friendly. The teaching team was dedicated and the lessons were designed with fun and joy. The building was in a good condition, the location of the school is gorgeous and also convenient if you like old towns. A small disadvantage is the lack of heating. We had to set up a small portable heater in our accommodation temporarily. But then, my accommodation couldbe changed at short notice. I was very satisfied with this new accommodation. I had a private bathroom and Lola was very nice and helpful. The distance to school was about 30 minutes and that was okay."

To make your language journey to Malaga a success, choosing the appropriate accommodation is as important as choosing the right course. Debla, our language school in Malaga, offers you different types of accommodation, so that your trip to Spain will meet all of your wishes.
A very popular option is staying with a host family. This way you'll not only get an intimate insight into the Spanish lifestyle, you'll also have the opportunity to put what you’ve learned into practice right away! If, on the other hand, you want a little more independence, there is accommodation available on campus, in the same building as the school. So you'll enjoy a beautiful terrace with a sea view while living with your classmates. Also available are shared apartments with your choice of single or double room and kitchen, bathroom, and living room shared with your flat mates. We can also arrange a private apartment or accommodation in a lovely hotel not far from the language school.
The popular shared apartments in Malaga are comparable to a traditional flat share. You’ll be living in a single or double room (bookable for single travelers as well) and share a kitchen, bathroom and living room with your flatmates. Community apartments are a 15-30-minute walk and a 10-minute bus journey away from the language school. The beach is in immediate proximity as well. You have access to washing machines in the shared apartments. Language students are responsible for cleaning the apartments during their stay. Shared apartments in Malaga are also equipped with free internet access (Wi-Fi). Your lease for the shared apartment will run from the Sunday evening before the start of your course until the Saturday morning after the completion of the programme. Additional nights can be booked for a surcharge. Please note that a deposit of €30 is payable upon arrival.
Private Apartments in Malaga - In addition to shared apartments, the language school also offers accommodation in private apartments. This is particularly recommended if you prefer to be flexible and independent and value your privacy.
Private apartments consist of one big room or a living room and a bedroom, a small kitchen and a bathroom. Accommodation is appropriate for 1-2 persons, depending on the apartment type.

Accommodation with a host family is very popular with our language students. You will get the opportunity to gain insight into Spanish culture and to experience the day-to-day life of a Spanish family. From a linguistic point of view, accommodation with a host family makes sense as well: you’ll be able to actively train the skills you acquired during class. Host families offer half-board services: you will have breakfast and lunch or dinner together with the family. Accommodation can be arranged in single or double rooms. The language school can assign you a roommate for your double room. The language school has carefully selected all host families in Malaga. They often have longstanding experience in dealing with international language students on a language journey to Spain.
Participants who prefer flexibility and independence will enjoy accommodation in the language school’s residence in Malaga. The school residence in Malaga is located in the same building as the language school and boasts a terrace with a gorgeous view over the Mediterranean Sea. Accommodation in the residence can be arranged in single or double rooms. Double rooms can be reserved for single travelers as well; in this case, the language school will select an appropriate roommate.
Residents must provide for their own catering. Language students have access to a fully furnished kitchen (with cooking utensils, dishes etc.) and share several spacious bathrooms. A TV, DVD player, hi-fi equipment and free internet access (Wi-Fi) are available to language students in a living-dining room. A washing machine can be accessed as well. Weekly cleaning and fresh bed-linen is included in the price. The lease for the residence will extend from the Sunday evening before the start of the course until the Saturday morning after the completion of the programme.

Our language school in Malaga gives you the chance to experience Andalusia in all its splendour thanks to numerous excursions and activities. Visit exciting historical cities like Seville, Cordoba or Granada or let the picturesque villages in Malaga’s hinterlands enthrall you! Morocco is a popular destination for our language students as well: the African continent is not far away and you’ll have ample opportunity to get to know the Moorish culture that heavily influenced Spain and Andalusia in particular.
Of course, the language school does more than organise excursions to the different regions and cities of Andalusia. Weekly cultural visits to historic sites in Malaga are on offer as well. Trips to the “San Miguel” brewery or the “Hojiblanca” olive oil factory are regular parts of the programme, as is a weekly trip to the Picasso Museum, with or without a guided tour. We definitely recommend the trip to Bodega where the world-famous Malaga wine is produced. Welcome and farewell parties are held in the language school to allow the international language students to mingle. The school also offers dancing lessons. Students can look forward to tasty paella feasts, and the school’s dedicated team will gladly show you how to prepare a traditional “Tortilla Española” or Andalusian Gazpacho!
