(English, German and Spanish for foreigners)
In 2007 a team of two qualified and experienced native teachers founded Academia Idiomas Torrox. Mari Nieves, who studied Translation and Interpretation at Malaga University, decided to set up her own language academy. The aim was to provide professional language courses. This involves teaching Spanish through highly-qualified and enthusiastic teachers, incorporating structured courses, lesson plans, high quality methodology and facilities.
During the same year, José Miguel Pascual, who graduated in teaching of Physical Education and Sports, joined the school. He started with teaching Maths, History, Spanish … to students who were struggling at school and high school. After some years, using the advantage of his knowledge of Spanish, his social skills and cultural interests, he started teaching Spanish and has contributed different approaches which are less conventional but more communicative and innovative.
The team and their methods have proved a success and as a result have gained the Accreditation by the Instituto Cervantes.
Academia de Idiomas Torrox
is situated in the historic center of a white Andalusian village of 15,000 inhabitants. The school is on the main street of the village, with good connections by bus, car or on foot.
Just two minutes from the school, the main town square is located, a meeting place for many people from various countries. Spanish students can enjoy the authentic atmosphere of a white village and learn a new culture. The local people will make you feel at home. Therefore, many tourists decide to stay here forever. If you come to Spain to learn Spanish, the longer you spend time in the country the better. Though a two-week course will give you a better grounding than you could get in months of going to evening classes at home, staying for three to six months is the best way to get a good grasp of the language.
