All of them will be in Spanish language and with subtitles in Spanish when it is possible to find them or with English subtitles when it is not possible.
At the end of the short film until 7:30 pm we will also have a little chat in spanish to comment on the film and practice a little Spanish language
You are all invited to attend for free every Thursday (until full capacity).
We are in Torrox Costa, just opposite Mercadona and BBVA, in the main entrance door that is between MAPFRE and ÓPTICA SALTO, in the first floor. Our School is located one step away from Hotel Iberostar, so it has a very simple and free parking always available on the esplanade right next to the hotel. Our exact address is: Avenida Esperanto, Urbanización Costa del Oro, Centro comercial A, First Floor. Torrox Costa. You also can find us on google.
Every Monday we will publish in Digamextra the title of the short film for the next Thursday or you can also know it by entering our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/malagalingo/

A New Home for Bertie: “I’m sooo bored with my current staff”.
I rescued Bertie in 2011 from the clutches of local kids who were treating him badly. They consider kittens fair game as entertainment round here. He is still very kittenish at heart and loves games (has a great poker face!).
He is up to date with all his vaccinations, has his passport and is chipped.
I am moving back to a flat in the UK where, unfortunately, the keeping of pets is not permitted.
Can anyone out there offer Bertie a safe home? I would be most grateful.
If you can help, please let me know. Roger, Velez Malaga. Ring 655236303 or
