Default Spanish lessons in the Costa Del Sol

Does anyone know any good courses in the Costa Del Sol area to learn Spanish intensively? Preferably with a payment plan? I've looked at a course at Marbella University but it costs just under 2000 euros for a 3 month course and unfortunately that's not something I can afford outright, does anyone know any courses where you can pay a certain amount per month?

Thanks.

Try asking at the Town Halls, some of the coastal towns run free language courses for residents.

See if there are any groups locally where people meet up and exchange languages they do have a proper name but can not remember it, , good way to make freinds as well

There must be a lot of schools around but I can only comment on one. The Escuela de Idiomas in Nerja http://www.idnerja.es is really good, but might not be in the part of the Costa Del Sol that you want. It isn't cheap either, but I can certainly say that it is worth the expense having studied there myself

While trying to find a course, you could learn a few masculine and femine verbs.

The femine ones end in AR.

And the masculine ones end in ER and IR

VER as in the TV, limpiar, planchar, comer, fregar, lavar, beber, cocinar, j*der,
cuidar, dormir. preperar, conducir.

As you can see they can be sorted into the 2 colums masc. and fem.

PROBLEMA, I prefer the Arnie version NO PROBLEMO, infact I used to say that myself in the UK, and loads of English do say it in Spain, I hear it quite often.

I would argue that problema is a feminine word though forget the EL, it cannot possibly be masculine....

la bicicleta because we can multi-task - getting exercise at the same time as moving from place to place carrying the shopping

my last word on the subject before we get in trouble - a joke one of my students sent me -an oldie but a goodie

I spent a few weeks there quite a few years ago and also found it good, even stayed in their accommodation once, no complaints at all.
