TLCdénia has benn here for more than 30 years and more than 15 receiving foreign tourists who come to Dénia to learn Spanish with our Intensive courses.
When a foreigner decides to come to Spain to do a program of linguistic and cultural immersion, they have at their disposal an innumerable range of destinations throughout the country, with great diversity and attractiveness. The first reason why they come to Spain is their love for the Spanish and Spanish culture. (In addition to other reasons that you can read in our article: Why do you learn Spanish?

They come to do an immersion course in Spanish, but at the same time, they look for a place to live new experiences and in Dénia, what seduces them enormously is the gastronomy.
