Course overview

The course is a combination of the Intensive Course of general Spanish with cookery lessons and visits and activities related to food and wine. Your level of Spanish is unimportant.

Spanish cookery module

Málaga's local cuisine is a variant of the world famous Mediterranean diet. Here you find the freshest fish and seafood, fabulous olive oil, local fruit, vegetables, nuts and pulses - the basic natural ingredients of the regional gastronomy. 

You will have the opportunity to develop menus based on local produce and what you have sourced with your tutors in the local markets.

Spanish language module

This Spanish language module comprises four lesson per day of General Spanish. The course is offered at all levels from total beginner to advanced and covers all aspects of the Spanish language including:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking
  • Listening
  • Grammar structures
  • Vocabulary
  • Aspects of Spanish culture and customs

Teaching programme

The teaching programme has been carefully designed to provide an intensive, progressive course, with a good balance between the various skills and continual practice of the new points introduced each day.

Teaching methodology

The school uses an eclectic, integrated method combining many aspects of the communicative approach with structured learning of grammar and syntax. Each day, according to the progress of each class and our detailed course syllabus, a new area of language is introduced and practised in a systematic manner.

This involves some elements of traditional teaching methods, as well as classroom activities such as language games, pair work and role-plays aimed at developing communicative fluency.  Students are actively encouraged to speak in Spanish from the very beginning.

Excursions and activities

Like us at gostudylink, the school passionately believes that participating in the excursion and activity programme helps to bring your Spanish lessons alive.

We urge you to take the opportunity, while you are in Malaga, to learn about Spain, see the countryside of Andalucía, eat Spanish food, meet Spanish people and visit the great cities.

  • White-washed villages like Nerja and Frigiliana.

You can also go to Africa for the weekend and you will be able to see first hand a little of the modern-day Moroccan culture that in the past had such an influence in forming the traditions, way of life and architectural heritage that we see in Andalucía and Málaga today.
