‘Estuve por 5 meses en la escuela Alhambra y fue una experiencia inolvidable! No solamente aprendí mucho epañol pero tambien mucho sobre la cultura y vida en España. La escuela organiza muchas actividades extraescolares como tapas y fiestas. Todos los profesores son muy entusiastas.’


Málaga: “ciudad del Paraiso” City and seaport in southern Spain, capital of Málaga Province, on the Mediterranean Sea near Gibraltar. The coastal area enjoys a privileged Geographical position: protected from the North winds by the mountains, it benefits from the highest average temperatures in Spain and over 330 sunny days per year It enjoys an extraordinary mild climate, with an average temperature of 22º C throughout the year.

3.000 years ago the Phoenicians landed in Málaga, and they used the harbour as an important center for salting fish. It was at various times a Carthaginian, Roman, and Moorish colony. The Moors occupied Malaga until the mid fifteenth century, after which it grew to become one of the foremost merchant centres in the entire Iberian Peninsula. This illustrious past has left its imprint on the historic centre, particularly around La Alcazaba, a fortress which dates back to 1065 and is now a fascinating archaeological museum. Birthplace of Picasso, the attractive, cosmopolitan city of Malaga lies on a beautiful sweep of bay in Andalucia. Blessed with sunshine and a spectacular quality of light, Malaga is a city of wide boulevards, swaying palm trees, lively nightlife, good museums and excellent seafood

Dani copping Sydney (Australia)

‘‘It was a great experience to spend 2 weeks in Málaga and especially in the “instituto Alhambra” where i met people from the whole world and got in contact with the spanish lifestyle. I was positively impressed by the lovely atmosphere, professionalism and friendly attitude the school offers. During my stay in Málaga i improved my Spanish more than i had ever imagined and thats because of very skillful teachers with great creativity and enthusiasm. The only thing that i regret is that i didn´t stay longer.’’
