Our Spanish for Foreign Residents in Malaga Course
We know that it can be tough when you move to a city, whether for work, to retire, for family reasons or just to change your life. Your language skills will be put to the test with real situations that you might not have foreseen. But it is fun too – when you know-how! And that is where our Learning Spanish for foreign residents living in Malaga comes in. We can guide you through the language, whatever your goal, and we can give you all the linguistic support you need to make your stay in Malaga a success.
How is this different to the intensive Spanish course?
Our course for learning Spanish for foreign residents living in Malaga is different from our intensive Spanish Courses in many ways. Firstly, the timetable is adapted to fit in around your daily life (the intensive courses run every morning which can be a bit too full-on if you are living here and have other commitments). With lessons just twice a week, you will have plenty of time to digest everything you’ve learned before your next class. (And do your homework of course!)
The students on the intensive course are often only here for relatively short visits, whereas your classmates will be other foreign residents here in Malaga. That means that they’ll understand your situation perfectly and – who knows – you might even make friends on your course too!
When do classes take place?
Classes take place twice a week and can be seamlessly slotted around your work or other studies. Depending on your Spanish level, lessons are offered two days a week: Monday and Wednesday, Tuesday and Thursday, or Wednesday and Friday at the following times:
- 09:30 to 10:55
- 11:20 to 13.00
- 16:00 to 17:40
- 17:40 to 19:30
You can decide the duration of the course yourself but normally our students opt for three months.
How big will my class be?
Your class will have between 6 and 10 students. This is ideal, as it means you will have a good number of classmates to do role plays, practice and make friends – but the class is small enough to ensure you have lots of attention from your expert native teacher.
Are materials included or do I have to buy a coursebook?
We don’t use a specific coursebook on this course, as your needs will change as a group and each student may wish to look at different areas. So your teacher will bring materials suited to your particular needs as a group as part of the course price. And if there is a book that would really be worth buying, to help you study inside or outside class, your teacher will recommend it to you as something separate.
What will I be studying?
In addition to working on your grammar and vocabulary, the Spanish for foreign residents in Malaga course will give you a deeper understanding of the local way of life too. We will explore customs, lifestyle, habits, cultural events, politics, literature, cinematography and much more.
Is it possible to customize my course?
Of course! If you begin the course and realize you would like to explore a certain area a little more, you can take private lessons with your teacher. And if you’re really new to Malaga, you can check out our Cultural Program, which organizes tours, excursions and visits to nearby cities.
What if I don’t know my Spanish level?
Before you join the course, we’ll need to assess your level, so you’ll have a friendly interview with one of our Spanish teachers and will be asked to complete a little informal grammar and vocabulary test. This is just to help us place you in the right group and you don’t need to study or worry about it at all!
