If you've always imagined Spain as a warm, Mediterranean paradise, you should consider studying Spanish in Gran Canaria. With some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, Gran Canaria lies between the mountains and the sea and basks in mild temperatures year round.
Gran Canaria is at once a tranquil and lively city that captivates the imagination with its rich history. The same seaside air that you'll enjoy first attracted the Romans, enticed the Arabs to stay for more than 500 years and was finally reclaimed by the Christians in the 13th century. Come celebrate Gran Canaria's past during Las Hogueras, a lively festival during which incredible papier maché sculptures are erected and then burned amidst parades and luminous fireworks! Learn Spanish in Gran Canaria and get to know an intimate, medium-sized city with an unbeatable climate, delicious food and warm, friendly inhabitants ready to welcome you as their own.
There are many leisure areas in Gran Canaria where the most varied entertainment is guaranteed. In El Barrio, the name of the Gran Canaria old town, there is a high concentration of bars and restaurants with excellent atmosphere, as well as some places with live music, preferably jazz.
Some must-see stops in Gran Canaria are: La Zona, just behind the Explanada de España (forecourt), which is for the young and lively crowd, or la Ruta de la Madera, behind Alfonso el Sabio Avenue, near our Spanish language school, and El Puerto, with their more modern spots, discotheques and out-door cafés.
