Apart from Spanish language courses, Quorum offers Spanish culture courses. Here at our Spanish Language School, we believe that studying Spanish culture – or that of any other language you might be learning – is a fundamental part of learning the language itself. The Spanish and History Course consists of 20 lessons of Intensive plus 3 lessons of Spanish Culture per week. The aim is to learn more about Spanish History and Culture.
Spain is a country with a long and proud history including settlement by the Ancient Romans and many centuries of domination by the Moors. It is a country of great diversity, with mountain ranges in the North East, beautiful beaches in the South and a luscious green coastline in the north.
