After years of searching for a smaller, high-quality Spain program, Athena found CLIC, with campuses in Cadiz, Malaga and Seville. With a maximum class-size of 10 students, and top-notch quality, partnering with CLIC-Malaga was an easy choice.
Founded in 1983, CLIC has become one of Spain’s premier language schools.
At CLIC, learning doesn’t stop at the classroom; high quality social and cultural interactions are integral to getting the most out of your experience.
If you want to learn Spanish, Malaga is a great place to do it. Not only will you be learning Spanish at one of the top language schools in all of Spain, but Malaga is an excellent place to learn Spanish since most of the locals only speak Spanish ... so you’ll have to as well!
Courses have the following % breakdown:

Yes! You will have independent time to travel, such as weekends, to travel. Many students choose to stay after the program ends to travel around as well (you must be aware of visa regulations before you make any plans!).
This is an international school that has students from all over the world attending. The school enrollment fluctuates depending on the season, but the typical amount of U.S. students at any given time will have anywhere from 2-20 students on the program. This makes for an incredibly personal and high-quality study abroad experience, things we at Athena pride ourselves on.
Excellent! Being on the southern coast of Spain, seafood dishes are the specialty here. There will also be restaurants with Spanish staples like meats, cheeses and paella.

We have partnered with STA Travel, an incredible student-focused travel agency. The good people there will be able to help all Athena students arrange flights overseas.
History, beaches, friendly Spaniards – that’s what Malaga is like, and what’s not to like?! Located on Spain’s southern coast, Malaga has a rich culture. Whether you’re in the mood for learning Flamenco, visiting ancient ruins, or shopping in the local markets, Malaga has it all.
The vibrant people and festive atmosphere provides a special and unique backdrop to learning the Spanish language. When the sun goes down, the beach is still alive as locals and tourists alike gather to socialize.
Incredible beaches … One of Europe’s oldest cities … If you’re truly looking to learn Spanish, Malaga may be the place for you. Its locals are very friendly, but English isn’t the language here - Spanish is. And that’s a huge plus if that’s what you’re looking to learn.
