Language programme in Alicante
Alicante is situated in the south-east of Spain in the heart of Costa Blanca, one of the most beautiful coasts in the country.

This typical Spanish city benefits from an extremely pleasant mild and warm climate and offers an ideal environment for studious and leisurely language holidays.
