Where should you go and what is right for you?

Spanish and Sun (11)Picking the right Spanish language course, depends on a couple of factors: the two main ones being location and time, but of course budget is also an issue. If you’re looking to do a Spanish course over the summer, for a couple of weeks for example an intensive Spanish crash course in the best place to do this obviously is in Spain. With low-cost airlines providing incredibly cheap flights to Malaga, the Spanish and son program is ideal. It’s also worth noting that Spanish taught in Spain is different from the Spanish that you learn in South America. Typically traditional Spanish is spoken in Spain which has subtle differences to South America Spanish. This is mainly detectable in the accents on certain consonants, but not significantly different enough that someone from South America could not understand someone from Spain.

To Learn Spanish On Your Gap Year  in Spain is a very popular option due to the amazing weather found on the Iberian peninsular, nowhere is this more the case than on the Costa Del Sol which has some of the best weather in Europe. The Costa in general does get a bit of a bad reputation, due to the overdeveloped touristy holiday resorts that sprung up in the 60s and 70s, however if you’re on the Spanish and some course you will avoid these areas and in fact will be staying in downtown Malaga which is a beautiful city with lots of architecture culture bars and restaurants and is a significant student town in itself so has a young trendy vibe, it is also a stones throw from two other beautiful cities namely Granada and Seville.

 

 

Studying Spanish and South America.

Spanish & Culture Argentina Xtreme Gap Year (27)Of course if you’re looking to study Spanish and travel South America, you will need a bigger budget than if you chose to study in Spain. Doing a Spanish crash course at the start of your travels in South America is essential if you do not speak any Spanish at all. English language is not common at all in South America. Being in xtreme gap year company, we often combine our Spanish language courses in South America with other fun adventures so for example you can study Spanish in Ecuador and learn to surf with national surf team, or perhaps do the ultimate adventure classroom in the Amazon rainforest and Caribbean beaches in the Venezuela.

Many people choose to enter South America from Buenos Aires, so we have a really cool Spanish language course and cultural immersion program, where you can learn Spanish in downtown Buenos Aires.

Learning Spanish can also help improve your job prospects as well as being great fun.

Taking time out to travel is always fun, but it can also be very constructive as well. Learning Spanish on your gap year (or holiday) is one way to demonstrate to future employers that you really want to learn and improve yourself. That is all good and positive, but the thing many people do not realise is that learning Spanish in South America for example can be a lot of fun too.

If you do not already speak any Spanish, or your maybe you took time to learn Spanish in school, but you are now a bit rusty, then Xtreme Gap Year has some excellent Spanish language programmes that combine learning Spanish with cultural immersion and on some programmes Xtreme adventures.

All the programmes are different, and all designed to offer you intensive Spanish course in fun and exciting environments, in particular some of the learning Spanish in South America programmes are so different from what you might expect from a typical language course, you might be surprised how enjoyable a period of constructive learning and travel can be.
