Learn Spanish through flamenco

Granada is one of the world reference points of flamenco, an art declared as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2010. Learning Spanish through flamenco is a form of linguistic and cultural immersion, which is essential for those who are seduced by the dance, song, rhythm and the tradition of Andalusia, and of Spain.

This course is aimed at people who would like to refresh and improve their Spanish, as well as enjoy and learn about everything concerning flamenco. Therefore special technical knowledge of the flamenco song or dance is not required for students, only a passion for the topic and a desire to practise and improve their Spanish. The Alhambra, Sacromonte and the historic area of the Albaicín are an incomparable setting to learn Spanish through flamenco.
