The school was very great but the flat was a little old and it was far from the school and the center of the city.

Apart from the unbelievable city - San-Sebastian (which i can tell not only according to me but also by discussing Spanish towns with other students who have much more experience than i do) is the most beautiful and amazing city in the whole country. Lacunza is a nice place for people who honestly want to improve their language skills and at the same time to have an amazing summer vacation!

The adult classes were fine, but the camp was not beneficial for English speaking students. There were less than 12 students learning Spanish and about 120 learning English, so everything was geared toward those learning English. I would not send my children back to the camp.
