Figures are telling us all: Spanish is the most trending language all over the world. Last year, more than 21 Million students studied Spanish as foreign language. More and more people decide to learn Spanish as a way of taking a turn in their professional career, changing their life or simply having a much better break from work in our country. And if you are thinking of learning Spanish in Spain, what would be a better place than Malaga!
In this post we want to share with the readers five reasons on why the Costa del Sol, in the province of Malaga, is the best place to learn Spanish:
- Climate: It is well known that Malaga and the Costa del Sol have an enviable climate. Its long hours of sun and average temperatures have made this region the preferred destination for Europeans, not only as a holiday destination but also a permanent residency. In fact, more than 15% of the total population of Malaga is foreign. Because of the characteristics of this climate, Spanish life happens outdoors; you will find people relaxing on the terraces, practicing sports, taking long mountain walks and swimming in the sea. Not to mention the many advantages this climate brings to our health, as well.
- Culture: In recent times, Malaga and its province have developed an impressive cultural offer. While in Malaga itself you will find important museums such as the Picasso Museum, Pompidou Centre or the Thyssen Museum in the rest of the province there are wonders like the “Caminito Del Rey” or the “White Villages Route”. Ronda is the last link of this chain of white towns, and capital of the Serranía de Ronda.
- Community: The weather is directly related to the character of the Southern Spaniards. On the streets you can feel an open mentality, where closeness, familiarity and team spirit form a part of the daily life. This openness makes it easier to contact with native and local people, and it helps the student and/or traveller to immerse themselves into the Spanish culture and to learn Spanish in Malaga.
- Gastronomy: Due to the orography of the province of Malaga, our gastronomy is extremely varied: cheese, cold meat and beef, marmalade, dried food and nuts, etc., which particularly stand out in the northern part of the Sierra. More and more small businesses are therefore opting for more traditional, family and high-quality food business. On the coast, we find numerous many types of fish including sardine skewers, which you can eat at the beach. And of course we should not forget the Molletes de Antequera, Montaditos, Serranitos and Pepitos of the province, fig bread of Coín, etc.
- Accessibility: Malaga airport is the most important of all airports in Spain and ranks 24th in the European Union. Numerous international companies, including low-cost airlines, fly every day to this Andalusian city at great deals. On the other hand, the cost of living is very low compared to other major European cities, so you can extend your stay in the province to study in one of the many Spanish language schools in Malaga, such as Entrelenguas. Our courses in our Spanish language school in Ronda are adapted to all types of profiles (travelers, families, young people, adults, children, etc.) so we encourage you to take a look at the “learn Spanish” section and start to prepare your trip as soon as possible!
