If you want to learn Spanish and therefore want to follow a Spanish course, the most efficient way of course is to do this in Spain. After all, you learn to speak a language best if you are surrounded by it all day every day. But where in Spain should you go? Without a doubt, the city of oranges: Valencia. Want to know why should you study Spanish in Valencia? We give you four reasons. (But of course there are plenty more!)
Primera. The sun. El sol.
In Valencia there are not 100, not 200, but 300 days of sun and blue skies a year. This is way more compared to cities more in the north of Spain, like Madrid, or San Sebastian. This is exactly why the city of oranges is an ideal destination to study Spanish all year round. Valencia has a mediterranean climate with an average temperature of 19º C. The winters are mild and the summers are hot. Therefore before and after Spanish classes you can enjoy a lot of city sights and activities outside.
Segunda. The perfect city trip destination.
Delicious Spanish food (paella in particular) for Spanish prices (cheap!), an historic city centre full of ancient architecture, modern arts museums as well as lots of beautiful graffiti and street art. And not to forget to mention the hundreds of orange trees that give Valencian streets it’s happy and bright sight. Valencia gots everything to be listed as one of the best Spanish city trip locations. There is lots to do and discover after language class. Taronja Spanish School helps you find out the best of Valencia by organising daily activities that helps students immerse in the Spanish and Valencian culture. Think of Paella-dinners, fiestas, museum-trips and concerts..
Tercera. The beach. La playa.
Apart from being the perfect city trip destination, Valencia is also great for a beach holiday. The city of oranges is located directly on the Mediterranean Sea and has a wide, beautiful and clean beach with fine sand: Malvarrosa. Just a 20 minute bike ride from Taronja School. This means you can spend the free moments and days you have during your Spanish course sunbathing, swimming and relaxing on your bath towel. Do you love quiet beaches? Not a problem, bike a little further and you will find plenty more beaches that are less busy than Malvarrosa: Las Arenas, Patacona, Playa de la Devesa, Playa de Pinedo Pueblo and Port SaPlaya.
Cuatro. Not as touristy as Barcelona, more vivid than Sevilla.
As the third-largest city of Spain, Valencia with its 800.000 inhabitants and lots of local traditions and festivals is a vivid and bubbly city where you won’t have to be afraid to get bored for a second. Besides this Valencia is real, it’s not at all a big tourist commodity. This means that Valencia is a great city for practicing Spanish. Learning Spanish in Valencia is like diving into the Spanish life completely. As soon as you leave the airport you will arrive in the genuine Valencian life where people are proud of their city and are happy to help you out.
