Here’s What You’ll Find Out
If you want to learn Castilian Spanish, the standard for radio and TV presenters (like RP in English), go to Spain. Yet, if accent is not a major issue for you, there are other options to learn the language and explore other cultures. LinguaTrip.com recommends Mexico, Argentina, Dominican Republic, Chile and Colombia.
Spanish language schools offer a range of courses which vary in length, intensity, specialization and cost. No matter what program you choose, each can be studied in a group or individually.
General Spanish. This all-in-one course is designed to teach students the correct pronunciation, get essential grammar skills and expand their vocabulary. General Spanish suits students with any language background and of any age. Take a look at some well-reputed schools providing the course.
For example, Academia Contacto Madrid, Spain. Once you are in Madrid, visit the world-famous Prado Museum, look at the center of all the roads in Spain, taste yummy calamari sandwiches, and visit the biggest Zara in the world.
Would you like to see Argentina? There’s a well-reputed language school in Buenos Aires, Expanish Buenos. Visit working-class neighborhoods of La Boca and San Telmo where you can watch atmospheric tango shows, go to traditional “parrillas” (barbecue grill restaurants) and stroll along the Avenida 9 de Julio — the world's widest avenue.
Check Enforex Cartagena, Colombia, for highly acclaimed language courses and the ability to taste famous Colombian coffee in the place it is produced. Visit Ciudad Amurallada (“walled city”), Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas (a grand castle) and Playa Blanca (one of the most beautiful beaches in Colombia).
If you’re fond of outdoor activities, there’s a brilliant school in Mexico where you can learn Spanish on-the-go. Studying in Walk Spanish Mexico City, you’ll be surrounded by cafes, museums, art galleries, parks and other tourist attractions. It’s an excellent way to learn Spanish while discovering Mexico.
Intensive courses suit those who need to build up skills in different language aspects asap. Of course, due to time restrictions, the program won’t give you deep knowledge of the language, but will definitely help to build confidence and improve fluency through daily practice, dialogues, role-plays, guided conversation, reading, listening-comprehension and grammar tests. Here are some examples of Intensive and Super Intensive Spanish courses: Don Quijote in Valencia, Chile and Buenos Aires.
DELE preparation. If you pursue a career involving Spanish language or simply want to have an official acknowledgement of your Spanish proficiency, it’s advisable to take a Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language exam (DELE). In order to prepare for DELE, take a course in one of the Spanish language schools (e.g., Don Quijote, Valencia). The course is fairly intensive (about 30 lessons per week) and allows you to dig deep into the four language areas: Grammar, Reading, Speaking and Writing.
There are three options of lodging available: stay with a host family, live in a school residence or find lodging independently.
Host family — stay with a local family, breakfast and dinner included. Be ready to follow certain house rules, e.g. eating at a particular time, no guests allowed.
School residence — stay in a student residence in a single or shared room. This is the cheapest option and will best suit those who want to mix a lot with international students at parties, events, etc.
Independent lodging — you can rent accommodation in any part of the city. We recommend the well-reputed service Airbnb where you can find suitable options regardless.
