School location outside the city center and close to the beach was perfect for me. Every 10 min. bus connection

The school is very well organised in general. I always got prompt replies from them even before I attended the course and they always gave me the information I needed.

Other comments
The classes (in our case) and the textbook somehow seemed uncoordinated - so much that teaching time was lost because we had to guess what the teacher actually wants from us. The school is extremely in love with its established rules. For example it is not allowed to attend classes if you're more than 5 or 10 minutes late. The classrooms were usually quite narrow. The recreational activities had the character of "Please no additional work for the school" and were usually organized from the outside (for different schools together).

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The evening program with the Picasso Museum, the ham + wine tasting, and absolute "must-do" is, of course, Granada.
Other comments
The rooms are not really ideal, especially on the first floor, the rooms are only separated by a folding door. Through the "board wall", you can hear the classes teaching on the other site better than your own ...

Trips, especially to the neighboring cities of Granada, Seville, Cordoba, etc. are very expensive. It is not worth to use school trips, it is better to organise something on your own.

I've learnt many languages and been to many language schools - I left this school happier with my progress than I have for any other school I've been to. Well worth it.

I was VERY dissapointed with the host family. Five students in one house seriously diminished the "family" environment. Just one small bathroom shared between the 5 students! Food quality & quantity was poor. I moved out to a shared a villa with other students which was MUCH better & I would recommend it.
