Valencia

Valencia is the third largest city in Spain, and its cultural scene makes it an ideal place to immerse yourself in the Spanish language and way of life. Located on the Mediterranean coast, it boasts of everything from pristine beaches to medieval architecture, a world-class football team and an avant-garde City of Sciences and Arts. On top of all that the city has a buzzing nightlife. Despite being a large city it’s a great place to learn Spanish, as the atmosphere is incredibly welcoming and makes those coming from abroad feel right at home.

Valencia is also home to traditional Spanish paella and mouth-watering seafood, as well as many more local delicacies. Enjoy delicious Spanish food while being surrounded by the exciting and diverse cultural environment Valencia has to offer. Most importantly, it proudly hosts Las Fallas, the liveliest festival in Spain and ‘the mother of all firework displays’. It’s just one of Valencia’s year-round fiestas that travellers from all over the world come to experience.

With its southern climate, delicious cuisine and its energetic and friendly inhabitants, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better place to immerse yourself in the Spanish language and culture.

Enforex Valencia is a large school located directly opposite Valencia’s main university. It’s a 20 minute journey from both the city centre and the beach, with bus stops and metro stations nearby. The school can accommodate up to 600 students, including local Spanish students learning English, French and German. This makes it very easy for you to practise your Spanish outside of the classroom with local Spanish students.

The school is accredited by Instituto Cervantes, FEDELE and ELITE. It is also recognised by the Bildungsurlaub in Germany and Sweden’s CSN, as well as a wide range of Spanish and American universities.
