While some students study with us at Escuela Delengua for months at a time, many students come for much shorter periods during their holidays. With so much to do in Granada, here is a quick guide to what you could pack into 2 weeks:
On the first Monday of your intensive Spanish course it is really worth getting to know not just the students in your class, but also those in the rest of the school. For that reason our weekly Monday night tapas is the first thing I would recommend. Even if you have been to Granada before, you are sure to discover new bars and find out more about your fellow students over a beer or two.
Visiting the Alhambra is, of course, a must. This staggering piece of architecture is one of the most visited monuments in Spain and it’s not hard to see why. From the beautiful gardens and panoramic views of the city to the intricately decorated walls and ceilings, the Alhambra is visually stunning. At the same time its history is fascinating and provides an insight into the development of Granada. Check our activities page to see if we’re going this week.
The Sierra Nevada and the Costa Tropical are both within an hour’s drive from the centre of Granada. Our weekend activities often include a trip to either of these great places but also to cities such as Seville and Córdoba. Winter in the Sierra Nevada means it’s time to get your skis on while the summer means hiking through spectacular scenery! However if lying on the beach is more your thing then definitely head to the Costa Tropical…
A favourite activity among our students, which I too would recommend, is visiting one of the local cafes during the morning break for a coffee and tostada (a typical breakfast in Granada!). There really is nothing better than soaking in the sun while practicing your Spanish with new friends!
Granada is full of historical and cultural monuments and during activities here at Escuela Delengua we make the most of them! Whether it’s visiting the Cathedral, the Capilla Real, The Parque de las Ciencas or a Flamenco show, check out our activities page to see what we’re up to over the next week.
Everyone has their own aims when it comes to doing a Spanish course with Escuela Delengua in Granada. Some come to improve their Spanish with an intensive Spanish course whilst on holiday, others to prepare for their DELE examination or as part of a school or university group. Whatever your reason, in just two weeks you can experience the very best of Granada and the surrounding region.
