Learn Spanish in Alicante
Alicante is the pearl of the Mediterranean, enjoying a wonderful climate all year round. Its beaches win Blue Flag Awards from the EU every year and Postiguet Beach is even located in the very centre of the city.
The area, inhabited well before the Romans, plays a vital role in the modern Spanish economy. It is a popular tourist region, and Alicante International Airport has excellent links with many European cities.
With 500,000 inhabitants, Alicante is a medium-sized city with a cultural life, a young and dynamic university, and a booming economy. You will also find here centuries-old traditions like the San Juan Festivities or the "Moors and Christians" celebrations, a revival of the "Reconquista" battles.
The Spanish spoken here has no special accent, unlike Barcelona where Catalan becomes dominant.
Estudio Sampere Alicante is founded in 2000. It is situated in the city centre, across from the "Teatro Principal". Postiguet Beach is just five minutes' walk, as are the Alicante "Corte InglÚs", the Renfe Train Station and the Central Market.
Many students live within walking distance of the school, which is housed on two floors in a newly constructed three-story building. It has ten well-lit air-conditioned classrooms, ideal for small groups, a library, a video room, and a common area.
