Frequently asked questions 🤔❓

In Malaga, there are several accommodation options to help you make the most of your language holiday:

  • Historic center (Centro Histórico): Staying in the city center means easy access to the main attractions and language schools. It’s ideal for those who want to be in the heart of the action and enjoy the nightlife and culture.

  • La Malagueta:
    A beach district close to the center, this is an excellent option for those looking for a balance between studying and relaxing by the sea.

  • El Pedregalejo and El Palo:
    These more residential areas are popular with students and offer a quieter living experience while still being close to the beaches.

  • Teatinos:
    The student district par excellence, home to the University of Malaga. Accommodation is generally more affordable and the atmosphere is young and dynamic.

  • Cerrado de Calderón:
    If you’re looking for a quieter, more residential environment, this area may be appropriate, although it’s a little further from the center.

Many language schools in Malaga also offer their own accommodation options, such as student residences or host families, which can be convenient and rewarding solutions for immersion in Spanish culture.

The main language spoken in Malaga, as in the rest of Spain, is Spanish. More specifically, the Andalusian dialect of Spanish is commonly used in the region. Standard Castilian is of course understood and spoken by everyone, but Andalusian can be distinguished by its characteristic accent and certain unique aspects of its vocabulary and grammar. As a tourist city, you’ll also find speakers of other languages, particularly English, in tourist areas and among tourism professionals.

The cost of learning Spanish in Malaga can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including the type of course, length of study and accommodation. Here is a general cost estimate:

  • Spanish courses : Tuition fees can vary from a few hundred euros for a one-week group course to more for intensive or private courses. On average, expect to pay between 150 and 300 euros per week for group courses.

  • Accommodation:
    The cost of accommodation will depend on the type chosen. Host families can cost around 200-300 euros per week with half board, while sharing an apartment can start from 400 euros per month, not including expenses.

  • Meals and personal expenses:
    Apart from accommodation, expenses for meals, local transport and leisure activities must also be taken into account. Allow around 10 to 20 euros a day for meals if you’re eating out.

  • Teaching materials:
    Some courses may require the purchase of books or materials, which can add up to 50 euros to the budget.

  • Activities and excursions :
    Language schools often offer cultural activities, some of which may be free, but excursions or special activities may cost extra.

These estimates are approximate and we advise you to consult the language schools in Malaga directly for detailed and personalized information on their programs and prices.

In Málaga, various types of Spanish courses are available to suit the needs and interests of each learner. Here is a list of possibilities:

  • Exam preparation courses:
    For those aiming to obtain official certification in Spanish, such as DELE or SIELE.

During your language course in Malaga, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in a variety of enriching activities that will not only help you improve your Spanish, but also introduce you to the local culture. Here are some popular activities to consider:

  • Cultural visits:
    Take advantage of your stay to explore emblematic Malaga sites such as the Picasso Museum, Gibralfaro Castle, and the Alcazaba. These sites offer a fascinating insight into the history and art of the region.

  • Excursions on the Costa del Sol:
    The beaches and small villages along the Costa del Sol are perfect weekend getaways. You could also visit nearby cities such as Granada or Seville.

  • Cooking and dance classes:
    Join cooking classes to learn how to prepare traditional Spanish dishes, or sign up for flamenco classes to immerse yourself in Spanish dance.

  • Sporting activities :
    Malaga offers opportunities for a variety of sports, including golf, tennis, and water sports such as sailing and paddleboarding.

  • Participating in local festivals:
    Depending on the time of year, you can experience local festivals that celebrate everything from music and cinema to traditional Spanish fiestas.

    Language stays often include meetings with other international students, which is a great way to practice Spanish in a relaxed, social context.

These activities are not only fun, but are also designed to reinforce your understanding of the Spanish language and culture in a practical and immersive way.

The best time to go to Malaga depends on your preferences in terms of climate and available activities. Here are a few points to consider:

  • Spring (April to June):
    This is an ideal time to visit Malaga if you prefer to avoid the massive influx of summer tourists. The weather is pleasantly warm and the days are generally sunny, perfect for outdoor activities while avoiding the sometimes excessive heat of summer.

  • Summer (July to August):
    Malaga is very lively in summer, with numerous festivals and cultural events. However, it’s also high tourist season, which means the city can be quite crowded and temperatures can rise significantly.

  • Autumn (September to November):
    Temperatures begin to cool, making it more comfortable to visit the city. It’s also a good time to enjoy the city, with fewer crowds than in summer.

  • Winter (December to March):
    Although this is the low season, the climate in Malaga remains mild compared to many other parts of Europe. It’s a good time for those looking to avoid the crowds and benefit from lower rates on accommodation and courses.

Each season offers different advantages, so the best time for you will depend on your personal preferences in terms of weather, budget and the type of experience you’re looking for.
