The tefl international TEFL course in Granada is in the ideal location to discover the past and enjoy the present. History is everywhere in the area. Granada’s architecture and rich cultural history is passionately kept alive; the delicious cuisine; the resounding sound of Flamenco music played into the night; the blending of Islam and Christianity. Granada is totally unique.
Historically, Granada hosts one the last fortifications of the Moorish Kingdom in Western europe. The internationally famous Alhambra and the Generalifé are samples of the splendour of this fascinating civilisation.
It was in Granada in 1492 that Christopher columbus received the support he needed and a charter from the then Queen to seek a new route to india, which ultimately resulted in the discovery of the Americas.
Granada Cathedral is the resting place of the Catholic monarchs Isabela and Ferdinand. In the cathedral’s shadow, you can visit the Medina, the Moroccan market of shops and tetarías (tea shops) set in a complex maze of narrow alleyways.
You could visit the unique Sacromonté ‘gipsy barrio’, the heart of the ""Flamenco puro"", and enjoy a totally different people, with their passion for music and dance, and see their fascinating cave houses.
Granada has an amazing geography. It’s in a magical valley between the relatively warm sea and the mountains: 45 minutes by car from Mediterranean beaches, 75 minutes from Malaga, and 30 minutes from the Sierra nevada ski resort at a height of 3,400 metres (11,050 feet).
Experience the soul of spain in Andalucía: the Pasos of Semana Santa (Easter week, first created for a medieval audience), depicting the Passion of Christ.
A Paso: huge and heavy statues of Christ, Saints and the Virgin Mary, carried on the shoulders of Costaleros, that process from the many churches around Granada, through the streets and into the Cathedral, then back to their home church (some take 14 hours!).
The Cofradía, an ancient brotherhood, adorn these statues, especially the Virgin Mary, each year and also take part in the processions. They are dedicated to keeping alive this celebration, the parades of Navidad (Christmas) and of the Three Kings Day.
You can’t visit this region without sampling Andalucía food. Typical dishes in Andalucía are simple but particularly delicious. Favourites include Gazpacho: the famous cold soup, a vegetable cream made of tomato, cucumber, paprika, garlic, olive-oil and vinegar served with bread; Pescado Frito: fish lightly coated with flour and sautéed in olive oil; Huevos a la Flamenca: a fried egg in tomato sauce with Chorizo (spicy Spanish sausage); Patatas Pobre: a hot pot made of potatoes and vegetables, and of course the inevitable Paella!
Enjoy the daily social experience of ""tapas"", a famous Andaluz tradition, at one of the infinite number of bars in the city; an enjoyable way to snack and get to know people - not just to have a drink.Apply now & get certified to teach english abroad!
