Our History

2016 - Opening AIL Málaga

Following AIL Madrid's remarkable success and recognition, the time was ripe for a new chapter of expansion, this time venturing into other captivating Spanish cities. In 2016, a momentous stride was taken as we inaugurated a brand-new school in the enchanting city of Málaga, christened AIL Málaga.

Málaga was not chosen as our next destination by chance. Nestled along the sun-kissed Costa del Sol, this city boasts both tourist allure and significant cultural prominence within Spain.

The inception of our Málaga school opened doors to a fresh community of eager learners, granting them the opportunity to master Spanish in an engaging and efficacious manner. As was the case in Madrid, our foremost focus remained on securing adept, enthusiastic educators well-versed in imparting Spanish as a foreign language. We strategically situated our new establishment in the beating heart of Málaga – a central, accessible locale – ensuring students could seamlessly embed themselves in local life and optimize their sojourn. Our cutting-edge, welcoming space was thoughtfully outfitted with the latest technological advancements and educational aids, reinforcing our commitment to furnish students with the essential tools for their learning journey.
