Spanish citizenship course offered to British expats

A Spanish college has created a new course designed to help British expats obtain citizenship of their adopted country.

Since the Brexit vote in June, many British expats have become concerned about what will happen to them once Article 50 is activated and the UK starts the process to leave the EU.

However, the newly announced “Brexpats Spanish Nationality Course” will aim to help British expats assume Spanish citizenship – thus allowing them to stay in Spain.

The aim of the course is to teach Britons command of the Spanish language and a general knowledge of its customs, history, culture, politics, sports etcetera, to help them pass the Spanish citizenship test.

The course will be offered at the Parnell Academy, in Mijas on the Costa del Sol. It is being run in partnership with the Brexpats in Spain group, which was formed in the aftermath of June’s Brexit vote.

Of this course, the college states: “Due to Brexit, its repercussions and the ongoing need to learn Spanish, Parnell Academy has teamed up with Brexpats in Spain to offer Spanish courses that cover everything needed to pass the Spanish Nationality Exam.

“Join this course to prepare yourself for the Spanish Nationality Exam and take a positive step towards integration into Spanish culture and language.”
