Testimonials from our school of Malaga
I have just spent an amazing 2 weeks on the Seniors Course at the Alhambra Instituto Internacional School in Malaga. Having read excellent reviews before booking, I had high expectations, and was not disappointed! This is a small and cosy feeling school with the most wonderful and dedicated teachers, who clearly care a lot about their students(special thanks to the amazing Fran and Andrés!). There is a lovely mix of young and older students, and the staff go beyond to make the experience special. The teaching is of a very high standard, with a great mix of speaking, writing and grammar, with staff even helping with feedback on homework! The organised excursions were a wonderful and varied addition and make the whole experience an amazing blend of learning and culture together. Even the students from other local schools had special praise for the Alhambra teachers, in particular their patience and very informative guided tours, which really enhanced the whole experience. I can't recommend this school highly enough, and above all, the teachers gave me confidence in my ability to learn Spanish- I have returned full of confidence(finally!) for my future learning. A huge thank you to everyone at the school, and I will certainly be back!

MALAGAA couple of days ago I came back from my 3th visit to the Alahambra Instituto in Malaga. First of all Malaga is a great city with bars, restaurants and lots of museums, and the sea is always close by. Furthermore it helps of course that the weather is amazing and the people always are friendly (would that be a coincidence my Belgian mind wonders?)But there were more reasons to go back to the Alhambra Instituto : the teachers are really wonderful, the reception is warm and cordial, the material is top of the notch and above all : from day one you feel part of ONE BIG FAMILY. The contact with staff and teachers is very personal and the students hang out together and help one another when they can.The first two visits were merely meant to keep up the knowledge I had acquired previously and which seemed to fade away by not using the language frequently enough. By being in a stimulating environment of co-students who were there with similar objectives I picked up some fluency already after a few days.This time however the objective of my 3 weeks stay was to substantially increase my knowledge of the more academic spoken Spanish. By means of a individulised programme with classical lessons, one-on-one exercises and cultural excursions I managed to reach my targets. Thanks Lorenzo, Andres and Fran !!!Robert De VogelaereGent = Belgium

I have just returned from a special 'Seniors' course at the Alhambra Institute and would recommend it highly to any adult who is thinking of doing a Spanish language course. Having experienced different schools in different parts of Spain, what struck me most about the Alhambra was the warm and welcoming ambience. Its not a large school so you get to know all the staff very well and the teachers are fun, enthusiastic and inspirational and the teaching is of a high standard. On this 'Seniors' package all the activities were included and there was something every day: visits to the local museums, visits to important sites in the city including the fascinating central market, a Paella get together, and excursions to Cordoba and Granada at the weekends. You learnt as much Spanish on these outings as in the classroom. I am looking forward very much to a return visit next year!

My 2 weeks at Alhambra Instituto were outstanding, due to Fran, a true teacher, Spanish to Spanish method, excellent workbook, magic interactive white-board. Really a computer I could open up on my computer.I’m a Senior, thus slower. But within 15 days, I understood 50 to 80%, reading 50 to 70 %. Speaking was harder. There are Senior Courses too !Soy de Francia y también Estados Unidos. Lynne

Estuve 2 meses maravillosos en Málaga, que pude disfrutar con la escuela Alhambra al máximo! Los profesores son muy abiertos, muy majos y explican el material bien. Estuve en el nivel más alto de la escuela, en el grupo C1-С2, done aprendimos muchas cosas peculiares de gramática, aumentamos el vocabulario y compartimos muchas experiencias culturales y gastronómicas. Viví la feria con la Alhambra y fue increíble porque estas rodeado de la gente joven, activa e inteligente. Los profesores son encantadores y te acompañan como los guías en las excursiones a otras ciudades. No te lo pierdas! Un abrazote a Lorenzo, Fran, Andrés, Lorena y Jose María!

Excellent teachers and facilities. Course prices are similar to other schools' ones but I don't think they would have treated us as good as here. I definitely recommend it.

I attended Alhambra for almost the entire month of June through an intersession abroad program from my university. This school was truly the best school I could have attended. They taught me everything I needed to learn to further my studies in Spanish. They not only personalize the learning so you can be successful at improving the language, but they also have such a positive energy when they teach.I had the pleasure of learning from Pilar, Andrés, Lorenzo and Fran. All of them push you to be a better student and Spanish speaker. They take their time to explain anything you are confused about and make sure you understand the content before moving on. In addition to the amazing teachers, Alhambra has amazing cultural activities and trips you can take part in throughout the week. These activities include visiting historical sites with incredible views, shopping at the local market, and taking a dive into the Mediterranean Sea through a boat ride.Through this school, I not only improved in Spanish, but I also became friends with people from around the world. If I have the opportunity, I will most definitely return to this school. I would highly recommend this school to anybody, no matter the age or the knowledge of the Spanish language and culture.

Lorenzo, Fran, Lorena, José, Andrés and the rest of the staff are amazing!! They went to great lengths to provide an amazing two weeks in Málaga, both for me and my students. They are very professional and personable. The Spanish lessons were interactive and the afternoon excursions were both educational and fun. We especially loved the paella party at the end of our stay. ¡Muchas gracias!

I spent two weeks at Alhambra and only wish I could have spent two months there! The school is great. Andrés, Elisa, Fran, Lorena, Lorenzo and Rocio we're all wonderful teachers; well prepared, experienced, enthusiastic and effective. I learned a lot and really enjoyed myself. The location in Pedregalejo is very nice, close to the beach and only a quick and easy bus ride to the city center of Malaga. The prices of their courses are very reasonable and I would highly recommend the school to anyone who wants to learn Spanish in the sunny south of Spain. Thank you Alhambra!!

Having studied at the Alhambra Institute last year I returned in April 2017 for another two weeks at the school. It was again an excellent experience. The teaching is professional, interactive and engaging. At times the classes are challenging but the teachers ensure that at the end the students understand the objectives of the class and are able to move forward. The teachers ensure that each student is involved in the class. I enjoy the changes of teacher during the week, as this enables the students to experience different teaching styles and accents. The extra curricular activities are also excellent, extremely enjoyable and well guided and informative. I highly recommend the school to anyone wishing to learn this delightful language. Málaga is a great town, safe, cultured, fun, with great food, bars and museums. Friendly people, good transport and sun.

I have been following my internship at Alhambra Instituto for 5 months and it was truly an incredible experience. The school is great and the teachers and the people at the school are really kind. I felt part of the team immediately, could follow some Spanish courses in order to improve my Spanish and they taught me more about the Spanish culture. I had a great time, met great people and learnt a lot. I recommend this language school to everybody who wishes to learn to Spanish language and be immersed in the Spanish culture. Thank you for the great time Alhambra Instituto!! :)

Highly recommended. I have just returned from taking a two-week course at the Alhambra Instituto and can thoroughly recommend it. The teachers are excellent, patient and encouraging, and they cover a lot of ground in the time available. It’s hard work but fun. Lessons are often light-hearted, which makes learning enjoyable. There is a friendly atmosphere at the school with a mixture of younger and older people. The school recognises that the over-fifties often like to have classes with others of their own age, and the Instituto specifically caters for this, although everyone mixes well and chats to each other during break times. I’m now hoping to move forward from beginners Spanish to learn more in the future.

There’s really no better way to introduce your classroom-based learning than by surrounding your pupils with native speakers and immersing them in the culture and daily rhythms of Spanish life.

Our Spanish school is located in Pedregalejo, a residential neighborhood in Málaga. The school is very close to the beach (100 metres) and near a bus stop from where you can easily reach the city centre and historical as well as cultural areas of the town. Our school has a reception area, 12 classrooms with central air conditioning, library, a Multimedia hall with computers, Wifi in all the classrooms and a sunny terrace.
Malaga, with 600.000 inhabitants, is situated in the south of Spain at the coast of the mediterranean sea.
Our Spanish language school offers a broad variety of Spanish courses for students, adults, seniors and short-term travel groups. Alhambra Instituto also provides tailor-made and intensive Spanish language courses for professionals and school Groups accompanied by their teachers.
All of our teachers are Spanish native speakers, therefore our students can be assured that they only learn correct pronunciation, grammar and special words and phrases that native speakers alone can provide. During class, teachers will only speak Spanish and we ask our students to do so as well.
Spanish Language Program details:
The Group is divided by levels. Students will be asked to write a test before class which determines which level they are and which class corresponds to them. During class, teachers use games, role-plays, music and short movies as well as text books to teach Spanish, however, the most important part of class is conversation because speaking is the key to learning a language. Therefore, our teachers make sure to get you to speak as often as possible.
Classes run from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. (or in the afternoon following the schedule of the Group) with lessons and different activities everyday. Our students come from all over the world. Therefore you do not only practice your Spanish – you also get to know lots of different cultures and people from other backgrounds which will broaden your horizon and make your trip an uncomparable experience that you will never forget.
We offer two types of accomodation, both of which have their advantages and disadvantages, but guarantee learning experience, comfort and especially lots of fun!
You can choose between living in a Spanish host family or a shared apartment with other students of our school.
Living among native speakers is always the best way to learn a foreign language. You get this opportunity by living in a host family. After class you continue practicing your Spanish at home – and because all of them speak Spanish as a mother tongue, you are guaranteed correct pronunciation and use of words and grammar. Furthermore, you’ll be provided with a daily breakfast and a warm meal. Another advantage: You will never feel alone. All of our families are very friendly and will do every effort for you to feel at home.
Do not worry: All of our families have been visited by our school beforehand and carefully interviewed to make sure that you are only placed in the best families possible.
We understand that our students want to live as close to the school as possible. Therefore, we made sure that none of our families is located more than 15 minutes from the school.
If you opt for living in a shared apartment, you will live with other students from our school. They want to learn Spanish as much as you do – therefore, you still get the chance to practice your Spanish, even if it is not with native speakers. Another advantage is the fact that our students come from all over the world and from almost all continents. We received students from Europe, Asia, North and South America as well as Australia. They come from different back grounds and each one of them contributes part of their cultur to Spain. This will certainly get you to think and broaden your horizon – and you get lots of new friends all around the globe!
Our apartments provide everything you need: a single or double room, kitchen and cooking facilities, television, wifi..
If you are planning to bring a group of students to Malaga, contact with us and we will help you to plan your group trip (firstname.lastname@example.org)
