Learn Spanish in Marbella, Spain
The best way to learn Spanish is to study Spanish abroad. Marbella, enjoying an average of 320 days of sunshine per year, is an excellent location for a study abroad program, with kilometres of sandy beaches, incredible year-round sunny weather and a vibrant nightlife. As you study Spanish abroad on your course in Marbella, you can also explore Andalucia – with cities such as Seville, Cordoba and Granada just a short drive away. As part of its cultural program, our school in Marbella organises excursions to these cities, as well as a wide range of other optional visits, activities and excursions.

Students at our Marbella school can stay in shared student apartments, in private studio apartments, or in carefully selected Spanish host families. Staying with a Spanish host family naturally helps you learn Spanish more quickly, as you practise with your host family the Spanish language skills that you learn on the course.
Once a week the school usually offers a guided walk of Marbella, with another activity usually scheduled for later on in the week. Examples of typical activities include visits to flamenco shows, trips to museums and excursions to other local places of interest nearby.

Muy Bonito Marbella!
My visit to Marbella was a very pleasant surprise! Located on the Costa Del Sol, I must admit that I'd expected the city to be full of tourists and lacking in character. I'm pleased to confirm that this is not the case at all!
I arrived in the evening and was delighted to find the sun still shining. The taxi ride from the bus station to the school provided a 'mini' city tour, and after depositing my luggage in one of the on-site apartments, I set out eager to explore.
The school is located just five minutes' walk from the beach, and I soon found myself strolling along the promenade in the evening sunshine. The seafront is lined with bars, restaurants and ice cream parlours (yum!), and I was in good company as I meandered along the shore. Holidaymakers and locals young and old were also taking advantage of the pleasant evening, and the place buzzed. Even though I was alone, it was impossible to feel lonely! The hum of conversation and the aroma of fresh fish being barbecued on the beach made this one of my favourite places to relax during my time in Marbella.
The tutors were excellent; friendly and helpful. Overall, it was a great experience. I shall be booking again with Apple Languages to continue my Spanish education in South America.
All in all my whole experience with Apple Languages has been totally positive. Apple Languages have always been friendly and helpful.
The teaching was excellent: all were highly enthusiastic and very friendly. I felt comfortable practising my Spanish in that environment.
I had a great time and the teachers were approachable and friendly. I had a fantastic time and really value the experience.
I completed a week of spanish and flamenco in Marbella, and it was absolutely brilliant.
Very friendly and competent teschers that inspired enthusiasm and interest in the classroom.
The course was good and very interesting. My accomodation was brilliant, the host couple were helpful, interesting, accommodating, fun and made me feel very much at home which really was great as I was on my own for the first week.
I enjoyed my week in Marbella and learned a lot of Spanish, met interesting, kind people - Spanish and English. A week wasn't long enough to gain fluency, of course, but I do feel I'm starting to think in Spanish, which is a start.
The teachers were very patient and friendly. It was the most beautiful experience of my life, I met so many people and did so many amazing things in Marbella! I really would like to go back there next year.
As a first itme learning any language - this course was superb. It was very daunting at first but the teaching staff were patient, friendly and eager to help.
