Location

Benalmadena is a friendly coastal town on the Costa del Sol, situated on a hill at the foot of the beautiful Mijas mountains range. Originally a sleepy Andalusian fishing village with beautiful white washed houses, Benalmadena has developed into a lively and animated town which retains its old charm and character.

Young people find Benalmadena a great destination as it is small enough to provide a peaceful and secure environment, while large enough to offer fantastic amenities. With its amusement park, water park, outdoor cinema, modern shopping centre, aquarium, sports centre, extensive beach and parks, there is never any danger of being bored!

Benalmadena is situated only 18 km from Malaga city and 8 km from Malaga international airport.

The Spanish Language School is located in a modern building right in the centre of Benalmadena. It boasts 20 large, sunny classrooms, all with air conditioning and the latest audio-visual technology to enable students to learn Spanish in a contemporary and innovative way. There is also a library containing a wide range of material, a 25-seat cinema, a large sun terrace with cafe, student common room and free WiFi access throughout the school.

Language Course

The language course comprises 20 lessons of 45 minutes length each, which concentrate on learning and actively using Spanish. The school caters for all abilities from beginners to more advanced Spanish speakers. The tuition is very much practice oriented, you will participate in group sessions alongside other students of a similar level, with lessons focused on improving all aspects of the language; speaking listening, reading and writing. There are 4 classes per day and these take place during the morning. During the afternoon there is a varied programme of supervised leisure activities, visits and excursions to introduce you to Spanish culture, sports and lifestyles.

My daughter has returned to the UK telling us it was her best trip ever and that she can’t wait to go back! I cannot express enough admiration for the Blue Stamp Travel team. I would have absolutely no hesitation in sending our daughter anywhere knowing that they were there in the background looking after her!
