Spanish Teacher Refresher Course, Malaga

Malaga is a popular destination for studying Spanish in Spain. Located on the Andalusian coast in the south of the country, it benefits from the famous Mediterranean climate, offering long summers and warm winter months. Malaga is the largest of the Andalusian cities with a population of over 500,000 and is a hugely historic and cultural city. Malaga is proud of its cultural heritage and certainly offers much more than just its wonderful beaches: birth place of Pablo Picasso and Antonio Banderas, it is a modern city with a beautiful historic centre of winding streets boasting tapas bars, lively festivals, new museums and an active night life.

“I had a great time. The school is the best in Malaga, I believe and it has fantastic facilities. The standard of teaching is very high and the teachers are all very organised and inspiring.  There are many different types of excursions on offer.

What is the process for Erasmus funded courses?

  1. Choose which course, start date and type of accommodation you would like to book and contact us
  2. We temporarily reserve a place for you on that course whilst you apply for funding through the Erasmus + programme.
  3. When you find out the results of your funding application, you pay a deposit of £150 to secure your place on the course. You do not have to pay anything until you have found out if you were successful or not.
  4. The full balance is then due 8 weeks prior to departure
  5. The application for funding is managed through Erasmus +, and as your language course provider, we provide you with the supporting documents (confirmation letter and invoice) for your application
