Centro de Idiomas El Mar La Herradura.jpg


Centro El Mar opened in La Herradura in 2003 and is deeply rooted in the local community. The owners, Sam and Marga, are world travelers and passionate about languages.  They they have lived in many countries with  their children so they have a deep understanding of immersion and discovering new cultures.

 

The Language school started out as a way to open the world to the local community, by teaching local children and families English. The school also teaches French and is involved in local groups.  This includes supporting the public schools with afternoon extra curricular classes and activities.  Of course very early on they also realized it would be good to offer Spanish classes to local residents, in order to help them immerse and get adopted in the local community.  The school also specializes in teenager cultural immersion,  as they bring school groups from all over the world to experience and learn about Andalusia, its people, culture and language.

 

At Centro de Idiomas El Mar they believe in a symbiotic model for business. They hire local qualified teachers and use local businesses and professionals to enhance their learning programs.  They use the local community as the classroom to teach Spanish and provide an immersion experience for visitors.  When teaching Spanish, their main focus is welcome the student into the community as their neighbor.  They involve the students in the local culture and community by teaching them to to speak right away, while  making it useful, practical and fun.  This in turn helps support the local community by giving back and helping the students discover the surrounding area.

 

Their Spanish program is divided in 2 branches. First is the standard Spanish Teaching (in accordance to European framework).  The second is the Resident & Culture Spanish, which is much more practical and focused on experiencing the local community.  This provide a feeling comfort with communication, as they immerse into local language and community.

 

They offer a variety of courses for Adults, Children and Teens.  These include intensive courses, resident courses, conversational, and themed workshops.  The workshops are held ever other month with themes such as; Spanish Civil War (hike and talk), Al Andalus (Hike and talk), Spanish Local Wines, Pronunciation, Subjunctive, Local Vocabulary and expressions and much more.

 

They will also create a custom package for your group.
