Study Abroad - Spain - Benalmadena (Study Abroad)

Description

Benalmádena is a small coastal city located in the heart of the Costa del Sol, just a few kilometers south west of Malaga and its international airport. The city is surrounded on one side my the Mijas Mountains and on the other side by the Mediterrannean Sea. Benalmádena was formerly a tranquil fishermans' village which has transformed into a lively city but without loosing its old times' charm.

Our language school, opened since 1978, is located on the first floor of a modern building, which has recently been renovated, and includes: 13 spacious and comfortable classrooms, all equipped with air conditioning and audio-visual supplies, a library, a multimedia room with free Internet access, a cinema/conference room with 250 seats, a large sunny terrace, living room areas, etc.

Lodging is offered by local host families, whom have been rigourously selected, in double room with half board or full board (2 or 3 meals/day). Most of the families are within walking distance from the school. The spanish lessons are held in the morning in groups of maximum 15 people per level and the rest of the day is dedicated to tourist, sports and cultural activities in order to create opportunities to learn spanish. It is recommended to have homogeneous groups organised by one teacher. The teacher in charge will be asked to give his/her suggestions regarding the spanish lessons content.
