This is an opportunity to improve your Spanish and to learn Spanish cookery in Murcia. In this one or two-week Spanish course we combine our intensive language course with cooking off-hands lessons, activities and interesting in-site visits. You will also visit several homes where a real Spanish host will show you local recipes and secrets about Spanish cooking. Murcian cuisine is a very important part of the world famous Mediterranean diet and Murcia is known for its delicious and varied "tapas". Here, you can find fresh fish and seafood from the Murcian coast and the Mar Menor, the great olive oil, the best fruit in the east side and the basic natural ingredients of our national gastronomy. This course will be taught in our premises as well as in LIZARRÁN, a well-known local tapas bar.
