Vejer de la Frontera

Vejer de la Frontera is an incredibly beautiful Andalusian village with traditional whitewashed buildings 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!

Vejer, voted the second most beautiful village in Spain, owes its allure to its special location, historic charm, and the previously mentioned iconic whitewashed buildings. The village boasts a vibrant cultural scene, hosting numerous festivals and events which our Spanish school actively involves students in. During your course in Vejer, you'll also have the opportunity to indulge in the town's gastronomic delights, including its renowned local tapas and wines. The central square, Plaza de España, is adorned with palm trees and features a quirky fountain where ceramic frogs spout water! The village also offers numerous cafes, bars, and restaurants and serves as an ideal setting to practice Spanish or simply watch the world go by.

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! Caños de Meca Beach is another beloved destination, bustling with people and activities and particularly enjoyed by windsurfers. All of the coastline near Vejer offers a delightful retreat for post-Spanish class relaxation and weekend enjoyment.

    You can learn Spanish on the most popular general Intensive Spanish course consisting of 20 group lessons per week, held from Monday to Friday. Classes take place in the morning and combine Spanish grammar with conversation, reading and writing. The small classes at our school allow students to develop their Spanish skills quickly in a fun, interactive and supportive environment.

    If you want to develop your Spanish language skills at a faster rate, then choose the Super Intensive course which consists of 30 lessons per week. Here you will follow the same schedule as the Intensive programme but will have an additional 10 Spanish lessons per week which can be tailored to your requirements. You may wish to study Spanish for professional reasons or work towards your future studies such as preparing for the DELE Diploma.

    If you don’t want to make progress in a group setting or have a very particular set of requirements, then choose Private Lessons for a completely tailored and flexible programme of one-to-one lessons. You can book these as a package of 5, 10, 20 or 30 lessons per week. The Duo Course gives you the opportunity to learn Spanish in pairs in a duo-private lesson. If you have a similar level of Spanish to your partner or friend and both want to improve your level quickly and in confidence, then this is the course for you!

      School Staff

      The teachers were very attentive and caring. Super friendly and made my course very much joyous.

      Intensive 20 with Host Family
      School Staff

      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.

      School Staff

      Good fun, lots of work but definatly worth it. I learnt a lot from the lessons and my teachers were very competent and friendly.

      It was extremely helpful staying with a Spanish speaking family and i think this aspect added a lot to the course. My family were very friendly and the accomodation very good.

      Intensive 20 with Host Family
      School Staff

      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.

      School Staff

      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.

      School Staff

      The school has very good teachers, who are very intrested in helping you to learn to your best advantage.
