This combination of activities will allow you to improve your language and sports skills, as well as enjoying a unique experience. Playing sport gives you the opportunity to use the language in a real-life situation, which is not always possible in a classroom.
The course also offers you the opportunity to meet other students from all over the world and share experiences. These will help you develop social and communication skills, as well as broaden your horizons.
We organise Spanish classes in small groups of up to 10 students to encourage a great mix of students with the same level of Spanish.
What are the tennis lessons like?
Our tennis coaches teach on a one-to-one basis. Training sessions begin with warm-up and stretching exercises, and cover a variety of skills and tactics appropriate to each player’s level, with plenty of opportunities for competitive matches in addition to coaching.
The excellent sports facilities offered by the Murcia Tennis Club make it an ideal location for this course, offering many practice areas and a wide range of fitness equipment.
If for some reason (incompatibility of schedules, instructors not available, busy courts,…) it is not possible to take tennis lessons at this club, we will offer you the possibility to take them at the Olimpic Club de Murcia.

What are the benefits of combining sport and study?
Sport can help you improve your language skills, and language skills can help you improve your sporting performance. They go hand in hand.
Learning a language and playing a sport have many advantages. In addition to improving physical and mental health, practising a sport also fosters discipline, concentration and teamwork. Combining both activities provides an enriching and fun experience, which contributes to personal development.
Also, studying sport and language together will help you to better understand the culture of the sport you are studying and will also give you new opportunities to participate in sport.
Why choose the Spanish and tennis course in Murcia?
The Spanish and tennis course in Murcia offers a unique experience for those who want to improve their Spanish while enjoying a sporting environment.
At Instituto Hispánico de Murcia it is clear to us that there is a clear connection between sport and language learning. To learn a foreign language you need to be able to communicate with other people and this is something that can be done more easily if you are involved in sport. And we firmly believe that playing sport gives you the opportunity to use the language in a real-life situation, which is not always possible in a classroom.
Also, we know that sport also improves your memory, which is important when learning new words and phrases. When playing sport, your mind is focused on the task at hand and you are not thinking about anything else. This means you can concentrate better and remember information more easily.
Last but not least, we believe that sport helps you to boost your confidence. If you feel nervous about using a foreign language, doing some physical activity will help calm your nerves.
