In September 2013, Spanish language school Malaca Instituto hosted eight of the leading Turkish educational consultants in Malaga.
The visit was arranged with help from the Patronato de Turismo, the Town Hall of Malaga and Turkish Airlines. It was part of an educational trip to learn more about Malaga as a destination for international students and the range of Spanish and University access courses on offer.
The agents were shown Malaca Instituto’s recently gained STM Super Star award. They also experienced some of the school’s activities first hand.
They participated in a “show-cooking” event in which they learnt to cook and then enjoyed a typical three-course Andalucian meal (see photo), consisting of avocado gazpacho, prawns with black rice and toorrijas
The school’s cookery teacher, Juanma, is a great food enthusiast who communicates his passion to his classes of students, who enrol for Spanish & Cookery.
With new daily direct flights from Istanbul to Malaga on Turkish Airlines, the visit is expected to bring more Turkish students to learn Spanish in Malaga.
