What You'll Do

Combine your Spanish lessons with learning to cook delicious Spanish dishes & exploring all the great gastronomy Cadiz has to offer on this 1 week course for elementary to advanced Spanish levels; you’ll be amazed at how much you pick up when you are fully immersed in the Spanish language.

Choosing to combine learning the Spanish language with learning to cook typical Spanish and Andalusian classics is a great way to accelerate your language learning as you’ll be immersed in the language and local culture throughout your stay.

On this unique language course you’ll be learning Spanish in the mornings and then head to the school’s kitchen where you’ll learn to prepare delicious dishes and have a great time with Maru – the school’s personal food fanatic. After the lesson, you’ll sit down with the other students to enjoy the food you have prepared with great company and chat.

In Cadiz you’ll be speaking Spanish from day 1 and find yourself progressing rapidly as you practise your new skills and vocabulary both inside and outside the classroom. Taught by highly qualified native Spanish speakers, groups are small and you’ll be placed according to your level when you arrive so you can be sure that you’ll be making the most of your time there.

The friendly staff at the language school also organise a weekly 8 hour schedule of FREE social and cultural activities – it’s a great way to meet other people at the school, practice your Spanish and experience the very best of Cadiz like a local.
