Hej Málaga

Denna skola i Málaga är en av världens äldsta och mest kända spanska språkskolor. Här lär du dig spanska språket av mycket erfarna lärare på ett språk resort med simbassäng, biograf och mängder av fritidsaktiviteter. Detta är vår största skola i Spanien men stämningen är trots det familiar därför studenterna håller till på skolan dygnet runt. Skolan har bra bussförbindelser till Málaga centrum och du är aldrig längre än 15 minuters resa ifrån Málaga centrum som bjuder på mängder av kulturella aktiviteter. Du kan gå till stranden på ca 10 minuter. Skolan har 25 välutrustade klassrum och skolan har själv utvecklat och förbättrar undervisningsmaterialen som används sedan skolan etablerades i 1971. 

Even though this school has been around longer than most others school, the director Ida Walladsen, always finds room for improvements which is very much in the spirit of GoMezzo and one of the reasons why we are so proud of our corporation with Malaca where so many students, of all ages, has become fluent in their new language. Every week a number of teachers dedicate their time to understand special needs in each class and relevant additional exercises are added to ensure that everybody learns.
