Sun, sand and Sangria! Spain has long been a favourite holiday destination for UK holidaymakers, for these reasons, plus many more. From the sun-kissed beaches of the Costa del Sol to the vibrant cities of Barcelona and Madrid, Spain offers something for everyone.

Whether you’re planning a short city break or a longer beach holiday, taking Spanish language lessons beforehand massively enhances your experience. And here is why it’s such an advantage to get some Spanish under your belt in advance…

Supercharged Communication in the Native Tongue

Many people in tourist hotspots speak English. But it’s always appreciated when visitors make an effort to speak the local language. Not only is it easier to order food, ask for directions and haggle at the markets. In addition, it gives you a deeper appreciation of Spanish culture.

Elevated Sense of Confidence and Adventure

Learning Spanish before your holiday boosts your confidence to explore more off-the-beaten-track destinations. Whilst many of the most popular tourist spots are well-signposted in English, just as many smaller towns and villages aren’t. Being able to read and understand basic Spanish makes it easier to explore these hidden gems and get a more authentic experience of Spain.

Life Enriching Experience

Spanish is one of the world’s most widely spoken languages and has a rich cultural history. Taking Spanish lessons before your holiday is an investment in so much more than your forthcoming travels. In addition, you’ll also gain a valuable life skill, not to mention having fun going about it.
