I wonder if anyone out here knows a good and cheap spanish course in Spain. I'm from Sweden and I'm going to study spanish at university-level next autumn so it would be good for me to have some practice in the country where it's spoken, but my wallet is rather thin so I hope there are cheap courses that also are good...
what is cheap for you? And for how long do you want to go? Price depends on length of stay, I guess.
I know a guy who runs a school in Malaga. (did a course there myself ;-) ). It seems they have very good deals if you want to go for a longer period (about 3 months). They also get you accommodation if you want to. I stayed in a student apartment in the centre. Had a great time. Lot of partying. And learned a lot of Spanish. I stayed on for a while and am now in love with Spain....
The school is Babel Idiomas, and they are in the centre of Malaga.
Hi: There is a spanish school in Sitges called Hola! Sitges. The price of the course includes accomodation for one week in your own apartment. I don't know what your budget is but Sitges/Barcelona is a great place to learn and vacation at the same time. Google Hola! Sitges Spanish School. Saludos,
I'm spanish and to learn "real" spanish as you want going to university I will not recommend you the most typical places like Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Sevilla or any other tourist place, because there are as many tourist as locals, the accent is not traditional spanish and unless you want to learn more on the bars that at the school, this places are party killers. Mu recommendation is Salamanca, home of one of the oldes universities in Spain and a medium size spanish city, far from the beach, so no crowded in summer. Info in http://www.spanishcourses.info/
