Description of school:

BEM Idiomas opened in 2002 with an English teacher, a Spanish teacher and a French teacher. Since then it has developed to become one of the leading private language schools in the area, with a reputation for high standards and professionalism.

It is a member of FECEI and ACEIA, and a recognised examination preparation centre for Cambridge exams from Young Learners to CAE. As from September the school will be a Cambridge Learning Partner.

The main school is situated in Vélez-Málaga, 4 km from the coast and 35km from Málaga city.  This large town is traditionally Spanish with easy access to the motorway, the mountains and has all essential facilities.

In 2013 a satellite school was set up in the neighbouring coastal town of Torre del Mar. Here English Summer Camps are held for children from 4 to 13 years of age.

In September 2015 the main school moved to new and larger premises within Vélez- Málaga.

The new premises are very central but situated in a quite plaza. The classrooms are light, air-conditioned and comfortable for groups of up to eight students.

Around 500 students attend classes twice a week and ages range from four years old to adults.  Currently the majority of them are teenagers, reflecting the higher level of English required by those seeking further education.

The staff room holds a wealth of resources for all levels, computers, a photocopier and internet access. These are always available to teachers.

There is also a small kitchen area for hot/cold drinks and snacks.
