Here in Granada there seems to be an ever-increasing number of Spanish schools. It’s no surprise, really; Granada is such a popular place to come and learn Spanish because of the abundance of highlights it presents; diverse culture, free tapas, alpine skiing, peaceful beaches and of course the mesmerising architecture, to name but a few reasons.
If you’re thinking of coming to Spain– or more specifically, Granada –to learn Spanish for a short period, you’ll doubtless want to make the absolute most of your time here; experiencing Granada to the max and meeting people from different countries who are all just as eager to learn Spanish as you are.
That’s where Escuela DeLengua comes in.
Not only does Escuela DeLengua offer comprehensive, year-long, intensive Spanish courses, but also unique, practical courses that focus on both traditional and environmental themes. Currently, the school is offering full scholarships on two such courses.

The course, lasting a whopping 8 weeks, will consist in daily one-to-one Spanish classes and analysing the sustainability of the school itself, in order to later be able to devise a plan of action that can help improve the school’s carbon footprint, and finally putting that plan into practice. These ideas could be related to recycling, the consumption of electricity, water usage whatever aspect will reduce the school’s environmental impact.
