Alhambra Instituto was established in 1980. It is located 100 meters away from the beach and only 15 minutes by bus from city centre. Our school has 10 classrooms with air conditioning and a fully equipped dance room for flamenco & salsa. Furthermore there is free internet and WIFI access. The school is fully insured for 3rd party liability. It’s a non-smoking school, but we have a smoking area outside.
Alhambra Instituto gives you all of the Spanish language skills and cultural knowledge necessary for success in today’s world. For more than 30 years, we’ve been teaching students from all over the world, and we’ve also been working with employees from international companies like Audi, Konred-Adenauer-Foundation, AEG, Bayer, Deutsch Bank, Hoechst, Lufthansa, SAS, Siemens, Swissair and Volkswagen.
Our school is a caring school where learning Spanish is fun and qualified teachers help you achieve your goals in the fastest possible time. Furthermore we organize various social activities every day as well as courses for cooking and dancing.
There are two kinds of accommodations, host families and apartments. Our home stay families are chosen with great care. Each family must pass our application process, followed by an interview and a visit to the home. Many of the families have experience with international students and create long lasting friendships. The price for host families includes half board (2 meals/day) or full board (3 meals/day).
If you decide to stay in one of our Shared Apartments, you can stay in a single or twin room, and share the kitchen, lounge and bathroom with 4-5 other students from our school. For persons who prefer complete independence and want to live alone or with a friend we also offer individual studio apartments.
