Agualivar Spanish School. Learn Spanish in Malaga:
Hello! We are two enthusiastic Spanish teachers and sisters that a long time ago dreamed of turning our family house into a special place. A place open to people with interests in nature, arts, culture, gastronomy, Spanish language and everything "off the beaten tracks". Our house is located in a quiet and rural setting, a perfect place to learn Spanish, live the culture as a local and share experiences with us and our family, living a real Spanish immersion.
We welcome you, the students, to our house-school where you live with us, the Spanish teachers, and our family. You are immersed in Spanish and in the culture of our country. Staying with our family in our school, you have the advantage of a teacher at your disposal at all times.
We don't simply offer Spanish language courses but Spanish immersions. What does that mean? We customize a complete and intensive experience for each student. And we take care of every detail. You participate in our family life and share our meals, thus practicing your conversational Spanish around the clock.The lessons, workshops and activities are adapted to your specific needs.
What is more important here, it is that we provide a high quality Spanish immersion and we guarantee you will only speak in Spanish during your stay with us.
Our school is located in a stunning beachfront Villa. We have spacious and bright rooms with sea views. Spacios living rooms with TV, library and video library always at your disposal.
Besides, our house is surrounded by tropical and olive trees, with our own vegetables garden and chicken coop. An amazing pool faces the sea for relaxing after the lessons or taking a dip before them! ;)
To sum up, hight quality accommodation to makes our students feel very comfortable and relaxed.
In Agualivar Spanish Immersion School we grow our own vegetables, fruits and we have our chickens and eggs! Join us and discover a very natural lifestyle. Learn Spanish taking part in our every day life. And enjoy delicious breakfast, lunch and dinners with all kind of fruit and organic & fresh vegetables.
These are some of the tasteful things you will be able to try and help us to grow or pick them! Enjoy! :)
What exactly is an immersion? We understand our Spanish immersion homestay to be an active and full immersion in the language. We don't use translations and Spanish is the only one language our students hear and speak. Does it sound hard? Maybe yes! But our experience has taught us that this is the best way to improve rapidly and get confidence speaking.
LIVE WITH YOUR TEACHERS! Our Spanish immersion homestay is based on active learning and daily participation. Living with us, your Spanish teachers, and our family, you keep improving your Spanish skills both inside and outside the classroom
WHAT YOU NEED! Agualivar is a friendly family-run school. We are a small school with small groups and we don't want to grow. That's why we can really adapt the immersions to our students' needs. Not only the Spanish course content but also the immersion itself. Before starting the immersion, we ask about their interests, hobbies, preferences... And we prepare an unique experience for each student!
UP TO 4 STUDENTS! Most of our Spanish courses are individuals or 2 students in the same level. But we accept up to 4 students for group. This is the way we like to work. Focusing on the students' needs. What is more important, students get the confidence rapidly, being more at ease and relaxed.
NICE BEACHFRONT VILLA
AGUALIVAR HOUSE. The best place to learn Spanish, facing the Mediterranean Sea and surrounded by tropical trees. Quality accommodation with spacious and bright rooms overlooking the sea. With an infinity pool, gardens and terraces to enjoy your linguistic holidays in Spain. We take advantage of our gardens and the lessons are taught there. We have a classroom but any excuse is good enough to go out! So don't forget your sunglasses!
OFF THE BEATEN TRACKS. Agualivar Spanish immersion school is located in a rural setting. The nearest village is Lagos, a small fishing town. We think this is very important and that is what differentiates us from most of the other Spanish Schools in Malaga. When a student is looking for a real Spanish immersion, sometimes it is hard to find a school with this features. A school off the beaten track, where students are able to spend their time without using their native languages.
FULL BOARD. Healthy and delicious, we have the best Chef ever (our mum) as well as the best organic and fresh vegetables, eggs and olive oil. Everything is grown by ourselves with love and care. Students share all the meals with us and our family to keep learning and practising. Besides, we encourage students to take part in our daily life, helping us in some tasks such as setting the table or preparing some dishes. We are trully convinced that this is how students learn more. Learning by doing!
Thank you so much for your hospitality and patience (with me!). I don’t have the language yet (en español) to express my gratitude.
I love the concept of learning in such an inclusive environment. Not only did I learn more Spanish. I feel I have a much better understanding of the Spanish people, culture, traditions and how the country works! I will continue my Spanish lessons in Canada and one day hope to return!
Posiblemente no voy a utilizar la palabra “almizcle” en mi trabajo muchas veces (¿quién sabe?), pero hay muchísimas otras palabras y lecciones que voy a usar todos los días. Voy a echar de menos todas las conversaciones, la risa, la comida, las vistas, etc, No hay otra escuela que podría ofrecer una experiencia similar. ¡Esta escuela tiene un corazón! Y gracias por toda vuestra paciencia…
No tengo palabras suficientes para describer mi agradecimiento. ¡Las dos semanas en esta casa han sido increíbles! He aprendido mucho y he disfrutado cada momento con ustedes. ¡Muchas gracias y hasta luego!
Amazing family!!!! Wonderful and educational experience. Look forward to going back
Sandra & Family
Our family, including an 11 year old and a 10 year old, spent a wonderful week at Agualivar. From the pick up at the Malaga train station we spoke only Spanish and we learned an enormous amount informally and during the lessons over just one week. The teaching and learning environment was supportive, well structured and fun (especially for the kids) and the extracurricular excursions to Nerja and Frigiliana were fascinating as well. The physical environment in the home of our teachers was faultless.
The entire family was welcoming and friendly. We had privacy, we had company, we had a pool, we had wifi, we had kids' games in Spanish, we had down time, we had meals all together enjoying fabulous homecooked meals, vegetables from the extensive garden and recipes typical of the region (some of which we learned to cook ourselves). Our teachers were both really skilled and really lovely. The lessons were pitched at exactly the right level for our two groups: kids and adults. We switched teachers midway through the morning so there was variety of material and approach.
Our children went into the week with next to no Spanish and made enormous progress and clearly had fun doing it. We all laughed continuously throughout the week and could not have asked for a better Spanish homestay immersion experience. One of our outings was to the wonderful Inacua 50m pool in Malaga so our daughter could have a proper training sesson - that was much appreciated and very generous and kind. The conversations we managed to have in Spanish were broad ranging and interesting and we learned a lot about Spanish culture, politics, history and economy. We cannot recommend Agualivar more highly.
I have no words in any language to express how grateful I am for your kindness, patience and friendship as I embark on this journey to better communicate with the beautiful families of Horizons. Your family embraced me from the first day and I shall always remember this. The conversations we had were so thought-provoking and I think this experience has been life-changing for Me. Now I will go back to the US able to understand my families better, but also myself. Thank you!
What a wonderful stay! I will always remember the delicious food, lovely home, patient teaching and above all, the warm welcome I received here from you all. An excellent experience which surpassed my expectations. I would highly recommend the immersion course for it is personalised and well structured approach along with a wonderful setting, great food and a very relaxed atmosphere where the focus is on making you welcome and encouraging progress. Un abrazo fuerte. Gloria Wickens, UK.
“This school will always remain in my thoughts as the best language learning experience ever. From the first minute I met my teacher and her family I felt like at home, and I would say even better. I felt like meeting my old friends, I felt like on holidays, even if I came there to study. “
“The school itself is amazing, it’s a nice family villa on the hill surrounded by beautiful nature and outstanding views. You can see the see through your window. The atmosphere is relaxing, Zen and calm, all you need for your efficient studies.
I had 4 private lessons per day (two of grammar and two of Spanish culture, history and conversation). I had two experienced teachers who made my classes interesting and involving, all the material necessary was provided, at my free time I could read Spanish books from family’s library, by the swimming pool or in the terrace.
After normal class hours my studies continued, because I was always surrounded by family members and I was continuously speaking Spanish. I felt like their family member, we had all meals together. All food was prepared with love, I ate a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables, picked up the same day strait away from family’s organic fields. Some evenings we had grilled fish or meat dinner in the outside terrace.
My teacher organised as well some trips around Lagos, I visited Nerja and Frigiliana.
My learning experience in Agualivar was short, but amazing and unforgettable, the experience that I would like repeat again and again!
I strongly recommend it to everyone who likes not standard but alternative learning.
It’s all about people!
MUCHAS GRACIAS PARA TODO!!!!”

“The homestay part of the program is equally great. The family was very kind and understanding about my ability to speak. The house is large and beautiful with a lovely pool and garden, and they grow lots of fruits and vegetables. It was lots of fun and really delicious to eat my meals with the family.”
“Among 100+ schools online I found Agualivar Spanish School, and it immediately stood out from the rest – I could feel the heart in it. And, how could a school be as beautiful as Agualivar Spanish School like a heaven? “
“I got a chance to do what I had not done when I was at middle and high school – staying in a host family for learning a language (Home stay program). The school is right inside of this 4,000 sq ft mansion. I was so lucky to have Elizabeth as my tutor, who is professional and very experienced. She is also very patient in both trying to understand you and get you understand her in Spanish for beginner-students like me. Most importantly, she pays attention into details. She knows your level and progress and she will use her creative ways to strengthen your weak and new parts. She cares about your progress more than you do.
For the rest of the time outside of the classes, Spanish only. The host parents during meals, the news on TV, the songs on the radio as well as the cute toddler…they would only communicate with you in Spanish. You will soon get used to it and will realize how much you have improved after few days here, specifically your confidence in speaking in Spanish.
You could also choose to join the local tours provided by the school. We have visited Sevilla, Granada, Malaga, Frigiliana and Nerja together. I was surprised by their capability in explaining the history of the areas. I did not have a map nor a travel book with me. I just had my mind focusing on learning Spanish and they took care of the rest. While enjoying the beautiful scenes, the churros with chocolate, the tapas and the Mediterranean Sea, Elizabeth didn’t forget to give me some little challenges by playing vocabulary games with me… haha, again, you will be surprised by how much you have learnt!
And the bonus part is the 5-star food and environment! they have their own farms and orchards, an outdoor swimming pool, a beautiful garden, dozens sets of Spanish DVDs in the comfortable TV room that you will never get bored! I love what they offer in meals! My favourite dis is definitely the home-made Paella! and the fresh salad, tortilla…every meal was a surprise because they seldom repeat it during your stay!
End up I couldn’t tell whether I was here for study or holiday. Maybe that’s exactly what they mean to let you feel. Even my Spanish friends have asked how did I find such a good school. I said, this is fate.”
“I experienced paradise for two weeks this past August. I was embraced as a family member into the Agualivar fold from the moment I arrived. My beautiful room overlooked the terrace, garden, Infiniti pool and the breathtaking Mediterranean view.”“All meals were a highlight due to the fresh locally grown produce, from their own farm, and the engaging conversation. I enjoyed participating in the daily ritual of gathering eggs and then learning how to prepare some local dishes. I never ate so well in my life nor felt so healthy. Art lessons fed my inner artist and Spanish classes focused on culture and gaining a native like fluency. Agualivar is truly a unique language school concept.”
