Spanish Course in Iquique

The north of Chile is home to the driest desert in the world: The Atacama Desert. Located right by the edges of it, next to the Pacific Ocean, lies Iquique. The huge sand dunes rise up next to the city and make for a great panorama.

Iquique is almost 2000 kilometers north to Santiago de Chile and is one of Chile’s big cities with almost 300.000 inhabitants. The city is known for its beautiful beaches, the good weather with a lot of sunshine and almost no rainfall as well as the many cultural infrastructure it offers.

People, who love outdoor sports, will never want to leave Iquique. It offers everything from surfing, sailing, and paragliding to scuba diving and sandboarding, just to name a few. Thus, it is not surprising, that there are many backpackers and international tourists in the city, enjoying all it has to offer.

As you can see, you will have a great variety of things to do while doing your Spanish Course in Iquique. On weekends, you can also go on an excursion to San Pedro de Atacama, the salt flats or the National Park Lauca and even Peru and Bolivia are not very far away.

Learning Spanish right next to the beach? Yes, please! The language school that was founded in 1980, yearly welcomes students from all around the world. Here, they can not only learn Spanish, but also English, German, French, Portuguese, Russian or Mandarin-Chinese. This is especially great because there will be many Chilean natives going to the language school as well, with whom you can connect in your free time and directly apply what you learned in class.
