studied General Spanish


I had an amazing 9 months' learning experience in Malaca Instituto before having a master in Barcelona. At first I had the intensive Spanish course but later I also signed up for Hispanic Culture course after finishing level B2, and passed the DELE B2 exam with help of the DELE preparation course. All the teachers are very professional with at leas 10 years' teaching experience (and many of them have been teaching for more than 30 years) so I could learn everything about the language while having fun. I've got a lot of help either in studying or daily life from the teachers and staff, who are always willing to help. In terms of accommodation, I stayed with a host family for a few weeks as well as in an off-campus apartment, and I spent such a good time with the friendly and adorable family, and all my roommates, many of whom are still very good friends of mine today. It's the people you meet here that make your learning and living experience a special one. Anyway, you'll never regret it here. And I'll definitely go back when I get a chance:)

Incredible School & Teachers

Really happy with the teaching style. Teachers change almost every class, so within 4 hours there could be 4 different teachers. This in effect keeps you awake and your attention maintained for the whole day. Each teacher brings their own style of teaching and ensures you pick up quickly.

I plan to return, not just to learn Spanish but also for the staff that work there.

I also partook in Salsa classes with Jose and I was surprised how much I loved it.

Malaga is a great city, good student vibe, lots of culture and friendly locals.

The accommodation is onsite so was easy to roll out of bed into the restaurant and then class. (lessons start at 8:30)

Beach is really close and buses are well connected.

Highly recommend the school!

I spent a whole month in Malaca Instituto improving my Spanish and enjoying summer holidays. Apart from highly professional staff I´d like to mark out the homelike character of this school. I could never imagine that it´d be so hard to leave this place as we really became one big family. Students, teachers, administrators, guides, everyone was just awesome! I wishe there were more places like this in the world, place where one can WANT to study, enjoy the process and have lots of fun :)

Amazing experience

I studied Spanish in Malaca Instituto 9 years ago from now, but I still have very good memories about the 5 months spent there. People are really nice, teachers are competent, the location is just perfect. Thanks to the Spanish course I did there I passed the Selectevidad, could enter a Spanish University and stay in Spain for 5 years during my studies. I really recommend this school! :)

Perfect spanish

I´ve been studying in Malaca Instituto intensive course, Hispanis Studies and I was lucky to prepare my exams needed to enter University. I´m very pleased with the results I achieved thanks to the program. I was accepted at the University of Malaga. The teachers at school are very kind and professional. The atmosphere is fun and enjoyable. I eventually graduated and got a Masters degree thanks to the help I recieved from the all staff at Malaca Instituto. Now I´m doing my internships at the school and this gives me great experience. This said Malaca Instituto has given me the basics and support needed for my ideal future. Muchas gracias

I'd like to say just a few words ... it was a such incredible experiance for me in studying spanish abroad. I've learned in this school more for several weeks than in my country for a year. I think it's because of high teachers' professionalism. They´re so amasing and really intrested in your progress in spanish. If you want to improve your language skills, just come to Malaca Instituto! You won't regret it.

The learning experience of a lifetime

This has been my fifth year in Malaca Institute learning Spanish and I have to say the experience was just as enjoyable, productive and stimulating as always.
The teaching in Malaca is second to none because the teachers respect the students; they are interested in them and their development and above all they are always on the side of the students. You can feel your confidence in speaking the language improve day by day.
As regards the quality of teaching, the bar has been set very high by those teachers who are outstanding - so much so that you get used to excellence and in the face of that sometimes 'good' can seem a bit ordinary.
The atmosphere in Malaca is very friendly - from the welcome we received in the bar when we arrived that first night, until the goodbye from the teachers and class members when we left - and all our experiences between these two events.
Malaca institute is a truly exceptional school and I can't wait until I go back again next year.

Paradise of learning Spanish

Unfortunately my course has finished at Malaca Instituto, after two amazing months I have to go back home. In my opinion Malaca Instituto is a paradise of learning Spanish. Before I went to Spain I never spoke any word Spanish, only; si - no and ´dos cervezas por favor´. But right now, after two months, I can talk with Spanish people, watching television, reading the newspapers, listen to the radio and playing Spanish games. My Spanish improved a lot, and this is made by a team of professional teachers. These teachers are willing to learn you everything and they give you 100% personal attention. They are making creative lessons with a lot of variety which make them very interesting. The teachers are all native speakers and telling you a lot about their culture.
Besides this I´m in love with the lovely weather, beaches and fancy places in the city.
I can reccomend everyone in the world to go to Malaca Instituto. Adios!

This course is for students aged: 13-70

Teachers course: in July each year we provide a refresher course for non-native-speaker teachers of Spanish. This creates an excellent opprtunity for practicing teachers of Spanish to improve their advanced language skills and meet other teachers from different countries to debate, try out and develop aspects of teaching methodology.

Combination courses: we provide courses combining general Intensive Spanish with 1-1 classes of methodology. These are especially good for teachers with basic Spanish skills who are teaching (or preparing to teach) Spanish at primary level.

Most of the European teachers who come for courses with us receive funding, usually from the Comenius fund.
