About ACADEMIA MALAGA SI

The School is situated in a magnificent building constructed in an Andalusian style, and the students can enjoy the splendid garden environment with its great variety of beautiful plants and trees.

One of the gardens gives on to the entrance to the School. The other garden is located behind the building and boasts of a small swimming-pool. We are able to take advantage of the space offered by these circumstances, and make use of these areas in spring and summer to do some of our classwork. This affords our students a pleasant atmosphere of relaxation and comfort which united with the study hours provides a perfect combination.

Facilities

The classrooms (six of them) offer ample space and are bright during the whole of the day, and are furnished with central heating and air-conditioning. There is also a room which functions as study corner/library, as well as a multimedia room with Wi-Fi connection throughout the building.

The areas for study also include a kitchen and an all-purpose room. Average number of students per class is eight, and this provides very personal attention. There is constant contact with the student, a fact which is highly appeciated by the students and fundamental for the teaching staff.

In view of the fact that timetables operate in two shifts (*), Málaga Sí can thus accommodate in its rooms between 120 and 150 students in the winter months and from 160 to 180 in summer, since two external rooms – devoted to group work for 15-20 students – can be utilized, weather permitting. Capacity is increased proportionally with the evening shifts in case of necessity.

When students wish to travel to the center of the city instead of remaining at the school, this meets with no difficulty. A bus stop immediately in front of the school means that students can reach the city center in 12 minutes, or if they prefer to walk it is a matter of some three kilometers or 20-25 minutes by foot.
A dip in the sea can be had at the beach, five minutes away from the school.



(*) The first shift – four classes daily – operates according to the following timetable: 8.30-10.00 (two classes of grammar) and 10.15-11.45 (two classes in communication skills). The second shift, organized in a similar way, according to this timetable: 12.00-13.30 and 13.45-15.15.
 

LEISURE

 

A stay in Spain wouldn’t be complete with only Spanish lessons. At Málaga ¡Sí! we are convinced that it is important to get in touch with the Spanish culture. So in order for you to experience the rich Spanish culture we offer more.
We offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities. The extracurricular activities range from watching Spanish movies in the school, visits to the Picasso Museum, visits to the cathedral and Malaga’s two castles (Alcazaba and Gibralfaro), visits to the brewery of San Miguel beer, going out to eat tapas or paella, meeting locals to practice your Spanish and excursions to nearby cities like Granada, Cordoba and Seville.

It is even possible to say goodbye to Europe and cross the sea to Africa and visit Morocco for a weekend.
Málaga offers you the typical holiday activities like beaches, a great nightlife and an exceptional climate throughout the whole year. But, Málaga offers more, more than just nice beaches and parties. Málaga offers a look into the history of Pablo Picasso, the famous painter, who was born in Málaga, which cultural heritage can be found in his birth house and the Picasso museum. It is one of the Spanish cities that have a bullring, where one can enjoy a typical Spanish bullfight. It is a city full of flamenco and full of bars and restaurants for eating tapas. It is also a city full with old Arabic and Spanish architecture, highlighted by the cathedral, the Alcazaba and the Gibralfaro, from which the last one offers an impressive view over the city and the sea. All of this can be found in Málaga, the city of big avenues, narrow streets, nice squares, a lot of shops and last but not least, Spanish life.

    My Malaga Si! experience.
    Malaga Si! introduced me with Spanish culture, hospitality, sociability, different cultures and a lot of amazing times.First, I really liked the atmosphere at the school. Everybody is very kind and helps you in which language you want to be helped, if there is something wrong. Once I had to go to the hospital and then I could talk in my own language (Dutch) to make me feel more comfortable.All classes were in Spanish, which is logical. The teachers do everything to make you understand what they are telling you, it doesn't matter in what circumstances they have to squeeze at least you understand.Besides the regular lessons you can go to the culture class, which is every day in the afternoon. Music, culture, history, every week has a different subject. When youare following these classing you'll know more about the Spanish culture, which is useful if you're staying for a longer time.In the weekend Malaga Si! organize amazing trips to go to. Surfing at the African coast, a long weekend to Morocco, a day to Seville, a day to Granada and lots of other nice things to do. In this weekends you get to know the other students better and you can also do some tourist things on your holiday.The apartments where you come to live are very practical and clean. If something isn't all right, you can go to the administration and they will always help you out.And besides everything about Malaga Si, the city Malaga is a very nice city. The city centre is big and full of shops, clubs, terraces and restaurants. The weather is always good, circle thirty degrees, no rain and a lot of sun.Many cultures, Spanish lessons, nice teachers, a beautiful city.. Malaga Si is a certain must to go!

    Malaga Si is a great school. I spent 4.5 months there in 2007. Initially I had planned to only stay 2 months at this school and thereafter go to another city, but I enjoyed it so much I decided to extend my stay and studies. The language professors were excellent. Friendly and patient! I began with hardly any knowledge of Spanish and it was a great non-intimidating environment to start. The location of the school is also great. Very close to the beach and in a nice, quiet area of the city. Even after 4 years, I'm still in contact with the people I met there. Malaga Si is excellent!

    Malaga Si is without any doubt the best school that exists! And believe me that I have been in many schools... Teachers and students are great and funny, and we had so much fun together! I was there during one month in 2010 and I wouldn't change this experience for anything! I totally recommend it.

    Es war mein dritter Aufenthalt in einer Sprachschule in Málaga und leider auch der enttäuschendste. Malaga Sí befindet sich im Stadtteil Padregalejo nur 5 Fußminuten vom Strand entfernt in einem typischen zweistöckigem Stadthaus mit mehreren ansprechenden Klassenräumen und zahlreichen Möglichkeiten. Das wars auch schon an Positivem. Leider besteht das Personal, abgesehen von den Lehrern, fast ausschließlich aus Nichtspaniern, so dass es in dieser Schule vor allem an einer typisch spanischen, d. h. herzlichen Atmosphäre mangelt. Die Lehrer sind mehr oder weniger in Ordnung, allerdings ist der Unterricht schlecht organisiert, z. B. erlebte ich eine Woche mit einem Lehrer für eine Klasse mit 12 Schülern in vier unterschiedlichen Niveaus. Wenn Sie von einem Aufenthlt in einer Sprachschule mehr erwarten als nur Dienst nach Vorschrift, dann meiden Sie diese Schule, ich kann diese keinesfalls empfehlen. Zum Glück gibt es ja eine große Auswahl an Sprachschulen in Málaga und aus Erfahrung kann ich sagen, dass man sich woanders wesentlich mehr um seine Schüler bemüht.

    I spent 6 weeks at Málaga ¡Si! from September to November this year. It was a fantastic experience and my Spanish improved a great deal in my time there. The teachers are very patient and have a range of excellent teaching styles. The course is interesting and combines grammar, conversation and cultural input. The school also arranges various social events and trips at very affordable prices. I went to Morocco for a weekend and will never forget the amazing experience. The school itself is very nice and all the staff are approachable, helpful and polite. If you are wondering where to go to improve your Spanish - go to Málaga ¡Si!, you will not regret it! By the way, I blogged about my experience while I was there: http://ellieinmalaga.blogspot.com

    Hello everybody in Málaga!!!I spent about 6 months in Málaga in 2007 at Málaga Sí. It was very nice, I learned such a lot of Spanish and the teachers, especially Ramon, and the staff, especially Sjef, :-), were so courteously and funny that it was way much easier to learn Spanish. In the freetime Málaga Sí offered a lot of leasure activities such as museum tours, city tours or a tour to Morocco and many many more. The beach was also very close to the school so that you could spend a lot of time for sun bathing or just relaxing at the sea. !!! So all in all I can really recommend this school for everyone who wants to learn Spanish speedily while having a lot of in school and outa school with the teachers, the staff or with new friends from the Spanish courses from all around the world. !!!

    Hola a todos! Last winter I spent 3 months in Malaga with 2 of my friends and we went to Malaga Si to study spanish. The school is amazing. Its a beautiful small building with a big backyard& swimming pool to match the great weather. Everybody who works at the school is lovely and patient. I'm sure I couldn't have learned spanish as quick and proper while having such a good time anywhere else! Besides, the school is located in the best part of malaga, pedregalejo!

    Hi! I have studied at Malaga Si twice now. One week over Christmas and New Year last year and then again at Easter. Even though I was only staying for a short while, I was made to feel very welcome. The Hacienda (student house) is close and a lovely building. I would recommend studying at Malaga Si. Enjoy!

    Bonjour ! J'ai passé plusieurs mois à Malaga il y a quelques années et ai choisi l'école Málaga Sí pour apprendre l'espagnol. Je ne peux que recommander cette école pour son professionnalisme, la sympathie de ses professeurs, sa localisation et sa taille restreinte qui en font l'endroit idéal pour réellement apprendre l'espagnol, tout en profitant d'une ambiance exceptionnelle.

    I spent 4 weeks in Malaga si and I can tell that it's a great school! Its teachers are very interested, classes are small, even the school is small and very personal. I liked the fact, that the Hacienda was very close to the school and from the school to the city center you could go all night long very quickly by bus. They offer many activities and you get to know other students very easily. This school is fun and you even learn a lot!

    I spent 2 weeks in Malaga, during the summer 2007. The school MALAGA SI is very good: the teachers are very kind and receptive; they always try to help students. The grammar course was helpful. Also the place were I stayed (10 mins far from the school) was ok. Unfortunately i was In Malaga for only 2 weeks but i hope to go there again in the future..

    I spent 8 weeks in Málaga Sí, and I had a great time! Before I came to Spain I only knew: ola and now I even know that that was wrong ;) Anyway, the first 4 days I got private lessons, and it helped a lot. After a week, I knew a little basis and after a 8 weeks I was able to give a speech about Holland and more. The school is small and that's nice, the classes never content more than 8 students, so everyone is noticed and you make friends really fast. The teachers only speak spanish, so you learn the language really quick. All together, I love this school and the teachers. I would come back every year!

    I spent almost four months in Malaga studying at Malaga Si in 2006. When I arrived in Malaga I could barely complete one sentence in Spanish, but one thing that really helped was the fact that the teachers at the school would not use English as an easy language for translations. All the classes were given in Spanish (no matter which level you were at) and although a challenge at first, we all benefitted as this increased our understanding of the Spanish language. The school is quite small which helps make classes feel more personal and each student is noticed. The commitment and enthusiasm of the teachers made you want to communicate and challenge yourself. No matter what level you were at, in the surroundings at the school you felt comfortable to communicate at that level. I remember once, at the beginning of my stay, telling a story using essentially three words and hand gestures. The culture classes which were given once a week were also a big help to understanding Spanish culture and more specifically that of Andalucia and Malaga. I would truly recommend Malaga Si for Spanish studies as I believe learning is best enabled in a safe and supportive environment like that of Malaga Si.

    I've spent around 5 weeks in Malaga to study Spanish. and I believe its the best city to study since its full of locals and not to touristic as other cities in Andalusia.I've decided to go to Malaga-Si after a long research and tough comparisons with other schools through various websites and reviews. Their prices are reasonable and value for money. The teachers are wonderful, well-organized and professional.moreover, there are lots of activities (free salsa classes, flamenco, musems, morroco visits, cinimas, volleyball...etc) and they're almost on a daily basis. Plus the school is less than 2 minutes from the beach. Definatly, I'll go there next summer.

    I spent two weeks in Malaga Si and had a wonderful time. The school is in the quite neighborhood and has a wonderful garden with palm trees and a small swimming pool behind the building. It is very well connected with the center of Malaga. The teachers are young and very friendly, open to all types of questions and very well prepared for the lessons. The school organizes visits to places nearby during the weekend and salsa lessons and similar happenings in the evening. I'd recommend this school to everyone no matter what Spanish level he or she is at. I've never learned Spanish before coming to Malaga and in those two wonderful weeks I learned so much. Malaga Si rocks!!! :))
