Spanish & Cookery

As well as being one of the world's top destinations for traditional tourism, Spain also attracts many people interested in its language and culture, of which its cuisine forms an integral part.

Andalucia is one of the world's leading producers of olive oil. If you drive inland from Malaga one of the most evocative sights you will see is the seemingly endless row of olive trees stretching into the distance. On occasion there will be a break and you will find almond trees, with their beautiful white spring blossoms, or oranges, lemons and avocados.

In the evenings spent sitting in a beach-front bar in Malaga you will see the lights of dozens of fishing boats twinkling off-shore, they are catching fish and seafood of all types and sizes which will be served up to you the next day, fried or 'a la plancha', but undeniably fresh!

As you will see, Malaga does not lack in the basic ingredients of the famous Mediterranean diet! At Malaca Instituto our cookery teacher will show you how to use these ingredients to create classical Andalucian dishes and then appreciate them together with other like-minded people.

The Spanish & Cookery programme consists of 4 lessons per day of general Spanish at each student's particular level plus 2 cookery sessions per week in each of which you will be taught how to prepare a complete Andalucian menu. The other highlights of the cookery part of the programme include:

? 4 dinners in the school with the teacher
? cultural talks and visits linked to gastronomy
? a sumptuous farewell lunch

Those are the basic details but what is the real experience that is being offered? Our students come from all over the world and range in age from 16 to over 90! So whatever the course being offered the students have the tremendous chance to live and study in an exciting multi-cultural and multi-lingual environment. In addition they will learn, or improve their knowledge of, the world's second most important business language ' Spanish ' an excellent career improving skill.

Our students can choose to live in a Spanish host family to gain maximum contact with Spaniards and learn about the Spanish way of life, or in our on-site residence and make the most of the multi-cultural environment or they can share an apartment with other students and lead a more independent lifestyle.

If this sounds like the kind of place for you, don't hesitate, come and enjoy the experience of Malaca Instituto and the great city of Malaga with its hundreds of tapas bars, beach front 'chiringuitos' (seafood bars) and fine restaurants - ┬░buen provecho! ('finger-licking good!')
