Welcome to Instituto Hispánico de Murcia. The No. 1 Spanish courses provider in Murcia County. We are the only specialists in teaching Spanish language to foreigners in Murcia, with experience for over 14 years. Why study with us? All Spanish schools offer something obvious: high quality courses, experienced teachers, the best social activity programme, the opportunity of enjoying life as Spanish people do... So do we, but we add two magic ingredients: experience and fun. And because we are specialists in what we do, we do it well! The only specialists in teaching Spanish to foreigners in Murcia. 14 years experience. Qualified teachers members of our team for at least 4 years. Small groups size. High quality language teaching always guaranteed. Classes on bank holidays will be always made up. School located right in the heart of the city. No need to use transportation. Wide variety of courses to choose from. And we don´t suffer from the so-called bigness complex, so don´t expect a big school! Having said that, remember we offer all Spanish levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

This is why we are leaders in teaching Spanish to foreigners in Murcia. Why come to Murcia? Our Spanish school is small and as such each student receives personal attention and the atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming - something that is sometimes less easy to achieve with larger schools. As fewer people go to Murcia than other, more touristy, Spanish hubs such as Barcelona and Madrid, you are unlikely to hear English or other languages during your stay - thus creating the perfect environment to really immerse yourself in the Spanish language and culture. The weather! Sitting on the aptly named Costa Cálida, Murcia boasts 330 days of sunshine each year and is the third sunniest region in all of Spain. Murcia is a very safe city in comparison to many others such as Alicante, Madrid, Barcelona or Málaga. You can walk safely through the streets at any time of day – although it is of course advisable to take usual precautions as you would in any city. In fact, Murcia is one of the safest regions in Spain according to the Spanish Home Office & the National Institute of Statistics. The food - namely tapas, which are said to be one of the best in Spain and a paradise for vegetarians. Thanks to the Murcia’s location between some of Spain’s richest arable land and the Mediterranean, producing abundant fresh, local produce, you can happily spend each evening drifting between tapas bars and sampling delights such as spiced mussels, fried squid, hake goujons, quails’ eggs, ensaladilla rusa, grilled vegetables, freshly carved ham, garlic potatoes, paella and more - all washed down, of course, with a caña (draft beer) or two! Founded by the Moors in 825 AD, Murcia is a melting pot of cultures: Arabic, Christian and Jewish. As such the people are colourful in character, exuding a religious passion that manifests itself wonderfully in Murcia’s many vibrant festivals. Whatever time of year you visit, you are likely to catch one of these: joyful Spring festivals (Fiestas de Primavera) and Easter Holy Week lead to the September fair, bullfights and a string of music festivals. As if you needed any excuse, you can be sure of ample food, drink and merriment at fiesta time. Murcia-San Javier airport offers direct flights from many European cities. Being a smaller airport than many of those on the Spanish costas, your time at the airport may well be shorter and less stressful. And don´t forget Alicante airport is located just 45 minutes driving from Murcia. If you’re after sea and beaches, Murcia is your place. With 250 km of coastline as well as 18 natural parks, fields, mountains and valleys, the region boasts beautiful natural landscape which also lends itself perfectly to outdoor pursuits and sporting activities all year round. Culturally, Murcia is something of an open-air museum. Alongside 15 museums you will find many art galleries, exhibition halls, concerts and a very interesting offer on theatre and fine arts. ... And there are 2 universities, more than 35,000 students and a very busy social nightlife!
