Holiday Itinerary

Regardless of your level of Spanish and whether you’re an avid trekker or a casual walker, this course is a fantastic way to learn Spanish and discover Spain from another perspective by enjoying stunning Andalusian landscape.

You will be able to put into practice all the language skills you will have learnt in the classroom to use when out and about in Granada and broaden your vocabulary whilst out hiking. You will be taught by highly qualified native Spanish speakers who have been trained and are experienced in the best possible teaching methods.

Two afternoons in the week you will do guided treks in the beautiful Granada Province and Sierra Nevada Natural Parks. The difficulty of the walks are up to you, as there is a wide range of walks and treks available from very easy to very challenging.

Granada is a great pick if you want to learn Spanish in a medium sized city which has plenty to offer for culture, history and food. You can visit the Alhambra palace, which is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, stroll along the streets of the city and listen to flamenco guitars as well as enjoying the many tapas bars the town boasts.

Indulge your need for adrenaline as you explore the stunning national park on guided mountain treks on a Spanish language course with a difference in magical Granada.

Who are our guests?
- People come from all over the world and you’ll never be placed in a class with just English speakers so that you use the language you are learning rather than resorting to chatting in English
- Ages vary, but the typical language learner falls in to the 20-60 age bracket though we have no age limit and we’ve had guests in their 70s and 80s studying languages with us
- During the summer and in university holiday times the average age typically drops and there are many guests in their 20s
- Over 90% of our language learners travel solo and every school organises social and cultural activities to help you get to know others at the school outside of class
