Despite its infamy for strong accents and regional dialect, Malaga has been chosen as the best location to learn Spanish, according to holiday booking platform, Holidu. 

The company analysed important factors like the number of language schools, opportunities to learn and teach languages, interaction with locals and ability to practice language skills. 

They also looked at the average cost of living, digital nomad culture, the friendliness of locals and safety.

Considering each of these factors, Malaga was named the fifth best city in the world to pick up a new language.
