Spanish Courses in Cadiz
Cadiz is a city with more than two thousand years of history and as you would expect, history is to be found there in daily life. Founded 3,000 years ago by the Phoenicians, Cádiz is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in Western Europe. Located on a peninsula in the Andalusian Atlantic coast, it has been able to preserve an important historical legacy – the result of its commercial importance. Even though Cadiz faces the sea in all directions, it has maintained its centuries-old traditions with a wise mixture of history and modernity. The people from Cadiz are famous for their openness, their hospitality and for their quick and witty sense of humor.
Being a university city, Cadiz offers a wide range of spare-time activities for young people. There are concerts and fiestas all year long and a great number of sports centers in the city.
The beaches of Cadiz are considered to be amongst the best beaches in Spain. There’s a wide choice: from the beaches of the historic Santa Maria del Mar to the Atlantic dunes of Cortadura. Cadiz also offers an extensive and varied program of cultural activities. The most well known is the FIT (Ibero-American Theater Festival) in October and Alcances (Atlantic Film Festival) in September.
The province of Cadiz offers the advantage of having one foot in the Mediterranean and the other in the Atlantic so that visitors are able to enjoy a great selection of landscapes and environments.

50 + Senior Spanish Courses
The Spanish language and culture (50+) course was designed some years back for those who fall into this age group, who are looking for a course whose content caters to their interests and that goes at their pace. There is a separate cultural program designed specifically for this course. The class sizes are reduced and the class methodology focuses on oral practice and the study of grammar through this. Reduced class sizes enable the teacher to dedicate more time individually to students and therefore incorporate their needs into the class content.
The 50+ Senior Spanish Courses are 2 or 4 week programs which consist of: 20 Spanish lessons per week in a small group (5 to 8 students per class), and available to students of Elementary to Upper Intermediate level (no full beginners), orientation walk on arrival, welcome drink, a social and cultural program on 4 afternoons or evenings per week (one meal with the teacher, Flamenco show, cultural visits and museums, a cooking class), plus one “highlight” activity according to season (see below). 4 week programs are a combination of two 2-week programs back to back (2 different program highlights)
