Why study Spanish in a classroom when immersion learning is the best way to learn a foreign language? There isn’t a better place to learn Spanish than in Granada, Spain. Granada is an absolutely stunning city, rich with culture, exotic flavors and awe-inspiring architecture. With a melting-pot of cultures and incredibly kind locals, new friendships and life-lasting memories are just a part of the experience.
1. Where it all started
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world and why not study Spanish in the country native to the language?
2. Location, location, location!
Granada is located in southeastern Spain, nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills and only 70 kilometers to the beaches of Costa Tropical. It is entirely possible to go snow skiing and watch the sunset on the beach in one day. Why study Spanish anywhere else?
3. Bucket List
The Alhambra, a beautiful and ornate Islamic palace, the gardens of the Generalife and the ancient, Arab district of Albaicín are reasons alone to attend a Spanish school in Granada. All three are declared as UNESCO World Heritage Sites and date back to the ninth century. They are also magnificent examples of the opulent, Moorish influences on southern Spain.
4. Bring it on!
One of the best reasons to study at a Spanish school in Granada is the food! Granada is a gastronomical dream, with regional specific cuisine that reflects the fusion of cultures that make Granada so unique.
Not only is the food delicious, it’s cheap! Free tapas traditionally come with every drink and a trip to the corner kebab shop or a family-run delicatessen is an affordable way to try some amazing, local food and also learn Spanish in Granada.
Vegetarians will also be pleased to find an abundance of restaurants that offer vegan or meat-free options in Granada, a typically more difficult quest in other parts of Spain.
5. Get Social
As if there weren’t enough reasons to learn Spanish in Granada, immersion learning means getting out and mingling. The historic Arab bath houses are a great place to chill and practice Spanish with new found friends and the setting couldn’t be more epic. Forgo Starbucks and share a pot of Moroccan tea in one of the city’s cozy tea houses. After filling up on endless tapas, head to the caves of Sacromonte for an epic night filled with Flamenco dancing and gypsy charm.
