We implement a personal approach, which focuses on a constant communicative practice with lessons 100% in Spanish.
We also pride ourselves on offering a true insight into Spain and its cultural wealth.
Because we take our work seriously, we have developed our own teaching materials with the highest standards of editorial content. Our in-house team works on improving what we offer, and with the use of personalised programmes and the latest technology, your learning experience is in safe hands. We follow the official reference levels of the Common European Framework for languages.
Before choosing a course, you can take an online initial assessment to determine your starting point and send it with your enrolment form, or you can do it during your first day at La Playa.
While you are here, we not only offer an unrivalled learning experience, but also focus on making you feel at home so you can make the most of your stay with us: contact us!
The school is located in la Cala del Moral, a lively coastal town close to Malaga. La Cala is a gateway to the East Costa del Sol, with its beaches, mountains, white villages and natural parks within easy reach.
La Playa is an oasis on the beach, surrounded by a lush garden with Mediterranean trees and a swimming-pool, giving you the chance to enjoy lessons both outdoors and indoors.
You will be welcomed at our reception desk where, apart from completing your enrolment, you can relax with a brew while you get all sorts of help and advice, from finding accommodation to the best places to make the most of your euros.
The school has four full-equipped classrooms, with wi-fi throughout the property, so you can be in touch with your friends and family and show off your new language skills.
The building is accessible by wheelchair and we adapt to your needs. Any sight or hearing impairment is managed by our personalised teaching methods. If you have any special requirement please let us know, we are happy to help.
Our vision for the future is not only a long-term commitment with the satisfaction of our learners but with the environment as well. This area boasts more than 300 days of sunshine per year, so we are planning to go off-grid as soon as possible. That's the sun creating electricity for us, and we in return do not cause carbon emissions. Great!
The creative team of La Playa School is formed by post-graduate qualified teachers and linguists working and collaborating with prestigious and recognized publishers specialized in Spanish as a foreign language, and involved in other professional enviroments in Spain and the UK.
Standard Spanish pronunciation is used during the lessons. However, the teachers´ accent is representative of several Spanish regions. That way, learners can gain an insight into the different linguistic varieties of peninsular Spanish.
Within this team, there are authors, editors, didactic advisors, coordinators, teachers who have edited, evaluated, analysed and tested all resources which you will be taking advantage of from the moment you enrol at La Playa.
