Learn Spanish in Vejer de la Frontera

Vejer de la Frontera is an incredibly beautiful Andalusian village with traditional whitewashed houses and narrow, winding streets, which is completely unspoilt by international tourism. Located at the top of a hill, Vejer has spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and coastline, and on a clear day it is even possible to see the coast of Morocco!

The nearby beaches at El Palmar are considered to be one of the best surf spots on the Atlantic Coast, and the wide sandy beaches are ideal for surfing beginners and more experienced surfers alike!

Our profesora was empathetic and aware of weaknesses in our language learning that needed addressing. The classes were the right mixture of conversation and grammar and fun to boot! It was clear that Maria Jose enjoyed her job.

My accommodation was conveniently near to our school, which was a bonus. Very kind hostess who made us welcome, introduced us to other members of the family and went out of her way to provide good food and talk as much as possible to us in Spanish, correcting us when necessary in a light-hearted way. Good accommodation for getting under the skin of the culture.

We took advantage of a trip to a vineyard using the school's transport, and though interesting and enjoyable, we were a little disappointed not to be offered a small tasting of the wines produced.

An excellent and well run course that was also fun. My teacher Eli was excellent and facilitated learning in a structured but enjoyable way. I learnt a lot in two weeks and gained confidence is speaking Spanish encouraged by Eli. The family I stayed with were very accommodating and friendly and helpful with my Spanish practice. I was overall very pleased with my course and the organisation. It was great that I also had a lot of fun.

The course was very good. The teachers were all very nice, helpful and professional. Vejer is the most gorgeous, friendly, welcoming place on earth. I have travelled a lot and I have rarely found a place that was so completely enchanting. So much so, that I extended my stay for an extra 2 weeks and it was VERY hard to leave! I can't praise Vejer, the locals, the College and the staff highly enough ... it was the holiday of a lifetime.
