2022: Spanish Language Course in Girona

girona22 graben 170Only a few months after the language course in Benidorm (November 2021), we were surprised to hear that another Spanish language course would be held from 24th – 30th April in Girona! I was a bit surprised when I heard where it would take place!

Girona is in Catalonia, and there, in contrast to the capital Barcelona, they really do speak "catalá". My Spanish friends were also very amused that I should undertake to learn Spanish here. But the "real" Catalans also speak Spanish, and many people who have moved here from other regions of Spain speak Spanish anyway, even if they often speak Catalan in everyday life.
