  • Anyone who wants to learn Spanish and have a heck of a good time while doing it should go to Alhambra Instituto! I can only speak good things about this school. I spent six weeks there in April-May and I had a blast. I went there with a level of A1/A2 and after six weeks I took a DELE exam on a B2 level and got approved! If this doesn't tell you anything about how brilliant, motivating and funny the teachers at Alhambra are then I don't know what would😂 Never in my life have I experienced such fun classes taught by teachers who really loves learning out their language and culture. Thank you Fran, Lorenzo, Clara and all the other great teachers at Alhambra for having me. And a special thanks to Andrés, who I now consider a dear friend Un abrazo fuerte Jennyread more

    Alhambra is the best school in the world no exaggeration. I was lucky enough to spend five weeks learning Spanish at the school which was some of the best weeks of my life. I the most incredible friends who I now consider to be family. I saw incredible sights, went on amazing excursions with the school and ate incredible food. The school's location is perfect only 10 minutes by bus to Malaga center in a beautiful suburb of El Palo where the people are very friendly, and the beach is around the corner. My Spanish teachers were phenomenal they were kind patient and somehow even made grammar classes intresting. I was lucky enough to be taught by Andres, Fran, Lorena and others whose commitment, professionality and enthusiasm were incredible to witness. Alhambra is more than just a language school it is a family, and I feel very grateful and fortunate to have had the opportunity to study there. Ahora tengo confianza en mi español. Me encantó mi tiempo en la escuela. Espero volver pronto Gracias a todos. more

    I have just spent an amazing 2 weeks on the Seniors Course at the Alhambra Instituto Internacional School in Malaga. Having read excellent reviews before booking, I had high expectations, and was not disappointed! This is a small and cosy feeling school with the most wonderful and dedicated teachers, who clearly care a lot about their students(special thanks to the amazing Fran and Andrés!). There is a lovely mix of young and older students, and the staff go beyond to make the experience special. The teaching is of a very high standard, with a great mix of speaking, writing and grammar, with staff even helping with feedback on homework! The organised excursions were a wonderful and varied addition and make the whole experience an amazing blend of learning and culture together. Even the students from other local schools had special praise for the Alhambra teachers, in particular their patience and very informative guided tours, which really enhanced the whole experience. I can't recommend this school highly enough, and above all, the teachers gave me confidence in my ability to learn Spanish- I have returned full of confidence(finally!) for my future learning. A huge thank you to everyone at the school, and I will certainly be back!read more

    MALAGA A couple of days ago I came back from my 3th visit to the Alahambra Instituto in Malaga. First of all Malaga is a great city with bars, restaurants and lots of museums, and the sea is always close by. Furthermore it helps of course that the weather is amazing and the people always are friendly (would that be a coincidence my Belgian mind wonders?) But there were more reasons to go back to the Alhambra Instituto : the teachers are really wonderful, the reception is warm and cordial, the material is top of the notch and above all : from day one you feel part of ONE BIG FAMILY. The contact with staff and teachers is very personal and the students hang out together and help one another when they can. The first two visits were merely meant to keep up the knowledge I had acquired previously and which seemed to fade away by not using the language frequently enough. By being in a stimulating environment of co-students who were there with similar objectives I picked up some fluency already after a few days. This time however the objective of my 3 weeks stay was to substantially increase my knowledge of the more academic spoken Spanish. By means of a individulised programme with classical lessons, one-on-one exercises and cultural excursions I managed to reach my targets. Thanks Lorenzo, Andres and Fran !!!

    I have just returned from a special 'Seniors' course at the Alhambra Institute and would recommend it highly to any adult who is thinking of doing a Spanish language course. Having experienced different schools in different parts of Spain, what struck me most about the Alhambra was the warm and welcoming ambience. Its not a large school so you get to know all the staff very well and the teachers are fun, enthusiastic and inspirational and the teaching is of a high standard. On this 'Seniors' package all the activities were included and there was something every day: visits to the local museums, visits to important sites in the city including the fascinating central market, a Paella get together, and excursions to Cordoba and Granada at the weekends. You learnt as much Spanish on these outings as in the classroom. I am looking forward very much to a return visit next year!read more

Not only my spanish skills improved but the thing is that I really did enjoyed the time in Malaga with this wonderful Spanish school. My best and true Amigo y professor Fran! He really knows how to teach the Spanish beginner and moreover very funny. Maybe because the class was fun, my spanish skills just enhanced belong. Thank you so much for the splendid experience there in Malaga. Ps. You are the best Fran! Buena Suerte con tu perros y gatos!read more

    My 2 weeks at Alhambra Instituto were outstanding, due to Fran, a true teacher, Spanish to Spanish method, excellent workbook, magic interactive white-board. Really a computer I could open up on my computer. I’m a Senior, thus slower. But within 15 days, I understood 50 to 80%, reading 50 to 70 %. Speaking was harder. There are Senior Courses too !

    Estuve 2 meses maravillosos en Málaga, que pude disfrutar con la escuela Alhambra al máximo! Los profesores son muy abiertos, muy majos y explican el material bien. Estuve en el nivel más alto de la escuela, en el grupo C1-С2, done aprendimos muchas cosas peculiares de gramática, aumentamos el vocabulario y compartimos muchas experiencias culturales y gastronómicas. Viví la feria con la Alhambra y fue increíble porque estas rodeado de la gente joven, activa e inteligente. Los profesores son encantadores y te acompañan como los guías en las excursiones a otras ciudades. No te lo pierdas! Un abrazote a Lorenzo, Fran, Andrés, Lorena y Jose María! read more

    Excellent teachers and facilities. Course prices are similar to other schools' ones but I don't think they would have treated us as good as here. I definitely recommend more

    I attended Alhambra for almost the entire month of June through an intersession abroad program from my university. This school was truly the best school I could have attended. They taught me everything I needed to learn to further my studies in Spanish. They not only personalize the learning so you can be successful at improving the language, but they also have such a positive energy when they teach. I had the pleasure of learning from Pilar, Andrés, Lorenzo and Fran. All of them push you to be a better student and Spanish speaker. They take their time to explain anything you are confused about and make sure you understand the content before moving on. In addition to the amazing teachers, Alhambra has amazing cultural activities and trips you can take part in throughout the week. These activities include visiting historical sites with incredible views, shopping at the local market, and taking a dive into the Mediterranean Sea through a boat ride. Through this school, I not only improved in Spanish, but I also became friends with people from around the world. If I have the opportunity, I will most definitely return to this school. I would highly recommend this school to anybody, no matter the age or the knowledge of the Spanish language and more

    Lorenzo, Fran, Lorena, José, Andrés and the rest of the staff are amazing!! They went to great lengths to provide an amazing two weeks in Málaga, both for me and my students. They are very professional and personable. The Spanish lessons were interactive and the afternoon excursions were both educational and fun. We especially loved the paella party at the end of our stay. ¡Muchas gracias!read more

    I spent two weeks at Alhambra and only wish I could have spent two months there! The school is great. Andrés, Elisa, Fran, Lorena, Lorenzo and Rocio we're all wonderful teachers; well prepared, experienced, enthusiastic and effective. I learned a lot and really enjoyed myself. The location in Pedregalejo is very nice, close to the beach and only a quick and easy bus ride to the city center of Malaga. The prices of their courses are very reasonable and I would highly recommend the school to anyone who wants to learn Spanish in the sunny south of Spain. Thank you Alhambra!!read more

    Having studied at the Alhambra Institute last year I returned in April 2017 for another two weeks at the school. It was again an excellent experience. The teaching is professional, interactive and engaging. At times the classes are challenging but the teachers ensure that at the end the students understand the objectives of the class and are able to move forward. The teachers ensure that each student is involved in the class. I enjoy the changes of teacher during the week, as this enables the students to experience different teaching styles and accents. The extra curricular activities are also excellent, extremely enjoyable and well guided and informative. I highly recommend the school to anyone wishing to learn this delightful language. Málaga is a great town, safe, cultured, fun, with great food, bars and museums. Friendly people, good transport and more

    I have been following my internship at Alhambra Instituto for 5 months and it was truly an incredible experience. The school is great and the teachers and the people at the school are really kind. I felt part of the team immediately, could follow some Spanish courses in order to improve my Spanish and they taught me more about the Spanish culture. I had a great time, met great people and learnt a lot. I recommend this language school to everybody who wishes to learn to Spanish language and be immersed in the Spanish culture. Thank you for the great time Alhambra Instituto!! 🙂read more

    In May 2016, I spent two weeks in Málaga at the Alhambra Instituto to improve my Spanish skills. Ever since my landing, I felt at home: Cristina picked me up at the airport and showed me many things on our way to the apartment, which became my home for the next two weeks. My roommates were fantastic and the internationality of our flat gave me the wonderful opportunity to start talking Spanish from the very beginning. The Alhambra Family had it figured out! :-) My sojourn got even better as my classes begun. The school has a familiar atmosphere and the teaching level is very high. The teachers’ specialised knowledge, their patience and their talent to explain every particularity in grammar is captivating. Lorenzo, Andrés, Fran, Carlos, Ana and Pilar achieved “to dust” my Spanish in only a few days and disposed me very well for the DELE exam. Furthermore, the extracurricular activities and excursions permit a totally immersion into the Spanish language and culture. Unfortunately, I had to less time to join the activity programs, but I will next time. As a matter of facts, I will come back as soon as possible to continue my studies!read more

    Very recommended, all the teachers are very nice and welcoming. Very cozy and nice environment, they offer trips everyday of the week and they sometimes take you to an outing after class to have lunch with students and teachers. The location is perfect on the beach. I went for 6 weeks and i already felt like i know everyone and i didn't want to leave. read more

    Highly recommended. I have just returned from taking a two-week course at the Alhambra Instituto and can thoroughly recommend it. The teachers are excellent, patient and encouraging, and they cover a lot of ground in the time available. It’s hard work but fun. Lessons are often light-hearted, which makes learning enjoyable. There is a friendly atmosphere at the school with a mixture of younger and older people. The school recognises that the over-fifties often like to have classes with others of their own age, and the Instituto specifically caters for this, although everyone mixes well and chats to each other during break times. I’m now hoping to move forward from beginners Spanish to learn more in the more
