Escuela de Idiomas Nerja was founded in 1980 by its current directors, Luis Carrión and Renate Urban.
Having arisen out of a dream and a desire to spread our language, ten nominations for the “STAR AWARDS” (awards organised by Study Travel Magazine) and institutions such as IALC and the Cervantes Institute back us as one of the best schools in the world in the second language sector.
Exclusively dedicated to teaching Spanish in Spain as a foreign language, the school has grown over the years and now offers more than fourteen different types of courses for all ages and interests. From the most general (Intensive, Super Intensive and Private) to more specific (exam preparation, professional, etc.) or more original and entertaining types which combine Spanish learning with an activity like salsa dancing, flamenco, golf, diving or photography.
We also offer a varied and enriching programme of cultural and leisure activities which perfectly complement our courses: seminars, half-day visits, Spanish cooking classes, tapas tour, excursions to other cities, beach volleyball, kayaking, etc.
In order for our students’ stays to be as successful as possible, they may choose and enjoy the type of accommodation that best fits their needs. They may stay at our Club Costa Nerja – our residence hall just three minutes away from the school and five from the beaches-, our top quality apartments or with a Spanish host family.
