The best Spanish courses in Spain
More and more non-Hispanic speakers are deciding to expand horizons and language skills, which are decided by studying Spanish courses in Spain. And more and more are the language schools…
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, to Learn spanish in Spain.
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.
An enthusiastic and committed team of more than 20 professionals is available to our students to make their stays unforgettable experiences. Directors, teachers and other personnel, all qualified for the jobs they do.
Our teachers are native speakers, have university degrees in filology or the humanities as well as specific training in teaching Spanish in Spain as a foreign language at the master’s, university expert or other level.
Each year, the school organises Internal and External Training Programmes so all of our personnel can continue their lifelong learning and update their knowledge.
And there’s no doubt that what we’re known for in addition to providing excellent professional training is how we treat our students.
We welcome about one thousand two hundred students a year from more than forty different countries yet we’re very proud to say that we are able to make each student feel “unique” with the necessary attention to meet their expectations as concerns their learning and enjoyment of their stay.
And what’s more, we work with agencies, schools and universities around the world which can speak volumes about us. We have been working together for years, growing hand-in-hand while modernising our facilities, services and even our teaching method with one single objective in mind: to offer our students excellence.
You’ll find us in the best enclave possible in Andalusia: right in the heart of the “Costa del Sol” and just fifteen minutes form the “Costa Tropical”.
In Nerja, just 45 min. from the capital city of Malaga, we enjoy an unbeatable climate: an average annual temperature of 20ºC. It’s a village with magnificent beaches, surrounded by mountains of incredible nature; hence, the origin of its name “NARIXA” which means “abundant springs”, which is the absolute perfect description.
We have two buildings located in the historic centre of the village, just a few minutes from the beaches and most important shopping streets. They are just a 3 minute walk from each other:
It’s also the “meeting place” for all of our students, with a spacious and comfortable Student Living Room as well as a Cafeteria, Book Shop, Library, Laundry Room, Study Room and Andalusian courtyard where they can gather with classmates or study outdoors.
Students have Wi-Fi at all of our facilities.
