Why La Coruña? La Coruña is a breathtaking coastal city in the lush region of Galicia offering beautiful beaches, delicious tapas bars, fresh seafood, and great nightlife! It’s also one of the best cities in Spain to learn Spanish as it allows for complete immersion in the Spanish language. Beyond our group, it’s very unlikely that you’ll run into other Americans or native English speakers. In more touristy Spanish cities, there are many English speakers which can make learning Spanish more difficult. If you’re looking for the best place to improve your Spanish while enjoying lively Spanish life, on a budget, La Coruña is the city to choose. Don’t take it from us, read about what our former students say about our Summer Internships in Spain! Christina from BIOLA and Hans from Loyola Marymount.
