Free Spanish cinema series (short films) every Thursday afternoon in Malagalingo Spanish Language School:
Starting on February, every Thursday at 6:30 pm you can come to Malagalingo to watch for free a Spanish short film with an approximate duration of between 10 and 20 minutes.
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/
