Learn Spanish in Malaga


Malaga is vastly underrated; which is great, because you can get all the history and local Spanish vibe without many other tourists around.

Malaga is a jigsaw puzzle that reflects 2000 years of history. A Roman amphitheatre stands close to a Moorish fortress. Picasso was born here and his museum is inside a 16th-century palace. A baroque cathedral is just steps from modern graffiti and contemporary Michelin-star restaurants.

At first you may think that this is many cities in one. The beauty of spending time in Malaga is that you discover a unique thread that ties all the different pieces together. Here is a city that honours a multi-layered past, while creating its own future. Now is the time to be here, before the rest of the world finds out.

An afternoon spent relaxing in Malaga can take you in many directions. Go in search of a specific history, perhaps at the Alcazaba. Hang out on a Mediterranean beach, possibly with a little beach volleyball. Follow the Picasso trail or check out Soho, the new art district. Relax in the parks or stroll along the new coastal promenade.

Slowly you’ll come to love the city and what makes it so special. And you’ll probably like to keep Malaga a secret for yourself. 

Malagueta Beach

Malaga is a city that stands right on the beach. Visiting Malagueta isn’t something you do once, it’s something you do almost every day. Come to swim in the Med, eat from the seafood shacks, and stroll the tree-lined promenade.


The 20th-century’s most recognisable artist was born in Malaga. His museum takes you on a journey from formative works to famous masterpieces, as well as showing inspirational pieces that Picasso himself collected.


Brimming with Moorish beauty, the Alcazaba is an old citadel perched high above the Mediterranean. Fountains fill the gardens and fortified ruins showcase the time when Malaga really evolved. The Alcazaba is lit up in the evenings, making it an excellent compass point for your stay.

Malaga Port

The modern side to Malaga, this port has become a lively place to be throughout the day and evening. You probably won’t be setting sail from here but you can walk the promenade and get to know its distinct energy.

Old town

Malaga’s old town is older than most. It stretches back through 2000 years of history, with different centuries along the cobblestone lanes. Get to know the old town and you’ll find favourite tapas bars and local shops, plus plazas for enjoying the Spanish way of life.

Our Spanish school in Malaga

Spanish learners have been studying at Linguaschools Malaga since 1982. It was one of the very first Spanish schools in Malaga and will place you in the heart of the old city. Walking around the local neighbourhood is a joy, with al fresco cafes, stunning architecture, and plenty of little tapas bars to try. Just how central is the school? Well, Picasso was born just across the square, in a townhouse that’s been converted into a museum. So if you want to truly know Malaga then you are in the right place.

The school itself is situated in a period building, with high ceilings that make for very open and spacious classrooms. 9 different classrooms help accommodate learners of all abilities while the experienced teachers have been proving their worth for more than 3 decades.
