Learn Spanish in stunning Malaga Spain: Trip Highlights

Spanish is the world’s second most widely spoken language and incredibly easy to learn. You don’t have to go all the way to South America to pick up new Spanish language skills when you can take a three-hour flight from the UK to the Costa Del Sol which boasts the best weather in Europe and do an intensive Spanish crash course with Xtreme Gap.

Combining 20 hours of Spanish with loads of really cool cultural activities in the major city of Malaga, and joining weekend trips to Marbella, Seville, Cordoba or Granada, with some optional Xtreme adventures along the way, you can top up your tan, devour tasty tapas, and immerse yourself in flamenco culture all the while perfecting your Spanish on this exciting Spanish and Sun 2 or 4 Week Crash Course in Spain.



  • Picking up new Spanish language skills during Malaga Feria week
  • Soaking up the sun in the sunniest cities in Europe
  • Plenty of beach time
  • Immersing yourself in Andalusian culture with tapas crawls, cooking classes and a flamenco show
  • Hitting stunning ancient cities in weekends
  • Discovering your Picasso’s from your Dali’s in the Picasso Museum


We run the strip once a year to coincide with the Malaga Festival which is a huge party in Andalusia. Expect a week of parades partying great food and music right on your doorstep. There’s loads of fun stuff to do which makes it so much more than just a typical Spanish crash course. Please contact us for exact dates.

The Feria is divided into two parts, day and night…….The daytime events start around noon in the main shopping street in Malaga and carries on until about 7pm. Be tempted by Spain’s national drink of sherry from the open air bars as you soak up the city’s daytime party atmosphere.

The night time party takes place on the huge fairground a short way from the city centre. Starting around 9pm you can party until dawn breaks. Hundreds of stalls selling food and drink, fairground rides and lots of loud party music, this is the event the Malaguenos save up for all year.


Depending on numbers in the group you will be housed in either a hostel or an apartment located near the school. There are plenty of inexpensive restaurants and eating out is a very social activity in Spain. Visit one of the local restaurants, sit outside with some of your new friends, share a jug of chilled sangria and watch the world go by.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • The lessons are all delivered in Spanish, because we have students from all over the world it would not be fair to deliver the lessons in one language over another. But they are structured in a proven way that actually gets your Spanish up to speed a lot quicker. You will find between two and eight weeks you can really improve your Spanish.

  • No. As this is a crash course you can learn Spanish with no experience at all, however if you already speak Spanish and you want to improve this is also great course for you. Not only do you get four hours a day practising with native Spanish speakers, you also get to do a lot of activities with Spanish guides giving you plenty of opportunities to practice your language skills.

  • Our Spanish school is in Malaga

  • Spain is one of the cheapest countries in Europe significantly cheaper than the UK so you actually don’t need that much. You can eat out of a nice restaurant for about eight pounds and a glass of beer costs less than orange juice! Of course during the festival there’s plenty in the way of temptation so you may want to bring a little bit extra to have a good time! We would recommend about €25 per day is adequate. There are plenty of cheap or free activities in Malaga, but you will want to cover your snacks and drinks.

  • Whilst there are plenty of free activities included in this trip our couple of optional extras for example of Morocco trip and kite surfing in Tarifa. You do not have to take part in these trips (which happened at the weekends) but they are rather good fun. A short ferry ride to Morocco is like entering a new world: stands to reason that you will be entering a new continent, and the kite surfing trip to Tarifa enables you to learn to kite surf in one of the worlds top kite surfing locations.

  • We recommend you book at least 12 weeks ahead because Malaga during the festival is pretty busy. The Malaga  Festival is actually the biggest in Spain and accommodation can be quite tight. You’re free to e-mail us if you have any questions, but you can book ahead for as little as £100.
