This is an opportunity to improve your Spanish and to learn Spanish cookery. In this one or two-week course we combine our intensive Spanish course with cooking lessons, activities and in-site visits.
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.
