Should you be Learning Spanish before you arrive?
When it comes to learning Spanish, we think it is helpful to at least have your basic manners and counting under your belt before you arrive. There are very few locals in town who speak English fluently, so do your best to speak the local language when you can. Once you arrive, there will be local options for Spanish language classes, but the options below can be done before or after you arrive.
Here are the tools we have used and recommend. Everyone has a different learning style, so that is why we are recommending a variety. Learning Spanish can be fun at any age.
Almuñecar Social Groups & Informational Resources
There is nothing better than a sense of community and that is what you will find in many of the social groups available in Spain. There are several resources at your disposal via Social Groups, Clubs, Facebook Groups, Google+ Groups, Blog and Websites about Spain or the Costa Tropical area. Within these groups, you may connect and learn from others. If you are looking for second-hand or used goods, there are several different buy, sell, swap groups too.
Did you know there are speed cameras in Almuñécar? This shouldn’t be a big surprise, as there are road signs clearly marking the speed radar zone. That said, when you have beautiful scenery you are looking at or on the hunt for a parking space, you can easily miss those signs. Needless to say when you receive that multa (fine) in the mail, with a photo of your car, it doesn’t feel good. Of course the next reaction is denial and that it couldn’t have been you, as you don’t speed.
If you are looking for a wonderful dining experience, then you are in for a treat at Restaurante El Árbol Blanco (The White Tree). El Arbol Blanco offers you a cozy atmosphere, along with excellent service and delicious food. The restaurants are owned and run by 2 brothers, Nacho (Manager and head waiter) and Jorge (The main chef). Each time we have visited, we enjoyed a scrumptious multiple-course menu, which tantalized our taste buds.
So glad to see you in Almuñécar! It is great that you would like to learn Spanish and we have just the place for you to take your Spanish Course!
If you would like to learn Spanish, in a fun way, from an accredited school, then Tropical Coast Languages (TCLanguages) is the place to go. From personal experience, we highly recommend taking Spanish courses in Spain with TCLanguages. We have seen people who arrived in Almuñécar, with very little Spanish, make incredible progress in just a few weeks.
