Hi -

I am wanting to take a short Spanish course for a couple of weeks in Spain (I am a beginner) but am not sure what town would be the most fun.
Any suggestions on places and courses?
It will be around the beginning of September.

Thanks for any help x x

Hi Ella,

What a good idea to take Spanish courses in Spain, that´s the best way to learn it!
There are a lot of towns in Spain which are a lot of fun to go to. For example you can go to Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia or Mallorca.

I´m working now in Barcelona and this is a beautiful city! There are so many things to do here so you´ll never be bored. It´s very easy here to meet people, especially on the beach or in the clubs.
The weather here is very good, also in September.

A couple of months ago (before I went to Barcelona) I was also looking for a Spanish course. I saw the website : http://www.estudiohispanico.com/
Estudio Hispanico has Spanish courses all over Spain. If you can´t chose just one city you can maybe do the course in different city´s of Spain. I thought Estudio Hispanico is nice because you are not alone there because you are together with a lot of students.
They will also help you with finding an apartment. They offer student apartments, private studio apartments, student residences and carefully-selected Spanish host families. So a lot of choice!

I hope this will help you and if you have any more questions just ask!

The first thing is to not expect miracles in learning a language, if you only have a couple of weeks. I think that that is something important to realize. Most schools will give you a test first to check at what level you need to start. If you are beginner it can take around 6 weeks of 30 hours of classes to pass the first level. Prices are pretty steep, and differences between schools can be big, so try to make a good decision when chosing a school. If you know someone that has done a course like that, ask them for advice.

In september a lot of students are coming to places like Madrid, Barcelona, Salamanca, Granada etc. so housing can be something difficult to find, as demand is high. Therefor a school that can provide you with a place in advance, might not be a bad idea. It might cost you a little bit extra, but it saves you the time to look for a place, and in a lot of cases being rejected, as people prefer someone that stays a bit longer than a couple of weeks. Also take a look at some of the small print. There are schools that offer to pick you up from the airport, but they charge a rediculious amount of money for that, whilst a busticket or metroticket is cheap.
