Spanish courses in Alicante

Alicante is a port city with a population of 330,000, located in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula on the Costa Blanca, one of Spain’s most beautiful coastlines. The old town, once called Lucentum – the city of light – by the Romans, is home to narrow streets of colourful houses with typical Mediterranean charm. The magnificent beaches that line its coastline and the university atmosphere that reigns here make Alicante an absolutely ideal destination for a language study holiday.
