IH Malaga

Malaga, Spain

Our story began in Seville in 1983. Our first school started small, but we soon grew as did our reputation for top-quality teaching, fantastic teacher training and excellent, authentic accommodation for visiting students.

We opened our newest school in Málaga in 2015. We are located right in the heart of the city, near museums, the Cathedral and picturesque city parks. 

Over the years we have taught over 1,000,000 students - either to become languages teachers and start their TEFL career, or to learn a language and start their own amazing life journeys.

Life in and around Málaga

Málaga is the largest city on the Spanish Costa del Sol and enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate. As its name suggests, you can pretty much guarantee sun here - it's one of the sunniest cities in Europe with an average of 300 days of sunshine per year. 

As well as sun and sea it also has all the conveniences of a cosmopolitan city. If you love history, art, culture, music, food, you'll find something to interest you here. In the old city there are some genuinely interesting historical and cultural attractions, and since it's the birthplace of Picasso there are plenty of art galleries. 

All in all, if you want to be based in a safe city with lots of things to do and many things to see, then Málaga is the place for you.
