The idea of creating the Spanish in Andalusia website was put forward in 2011, when EXTENDA - the Promotion Agency of Andalusia, recognised the potential in motivated and ambitious students from the US, who choose Spanish as the language they learn at school more and more often. Over the last few years, the number of students interested in learning in Spanish has increased significantly. This makes this language one of the most popular among American students.
To these official statistics from US Department of Education, we should add a very broad spectrum of university students and people who study Spanish privately in language schools!
But does it surprise anyone? Spanish is one of the most beautiful and melodious languages in the world. Despite being often considered as the easiest language to learn, the multitude of varieties and local dialects of Spanish is invariably surprising and never gets boring!
The Spanish in Andalusia website was created by people who have been sharing their passion for the Spanish language and Spain itself for many years. We all have lived in this country for a long time (as well as in other Spanish-speaking countries), so we are well aware of the progress that can be made in learning a language right in its cradle. There is no better way to realise that learning a language is not just about learning words and grammar rules - it's about conversations and contact with people!
Foreign courses are an ideal way to immerse yourself in a language, to get to know the cultural context of its use, but also, and importantly, to increase your motivation to continue learning and arouse your curiosity for the language, which is often impossible during lessons in the home country!
The Spanish in Andalusia website aims to present to you a wide range of Andalusian language schools in one place - you will find more than 80 of them here! Each one of them is unique and has a distinctive offer. You will find schools located very close to the beach, in historical city centres and in olive groves. You will combine your Spanish course with active recreation - surfing, dancing, horseback riding, learning to cook, creating ceramics or participating in Spanish film marathons.
No matter your age, interests, budget or language level - we will always try to help you find a school where you can find everything you want!
As a public institution we are not a commercial intermediary, we do not sell courses on our website, although we often inform about promotions and discounts offered by schools in Andalusia at a given time. The Spanish in Andalusia website has an informative function.
SpanishInAndalusia.com is a non-commercial information website.
Our mission is to provide you with free information to plan your dream holiday with Spanish. Here you will find a selection of courses from 52 schools in the region of Andalusia, along with direct school contact details.
