The beach near the village of El Saler in the Albufera National Park. Very nice, quiet, almost no people and great waves! To be reached by bicycle in about 1h. As well by bus.

If you are 16-17 years old I would not recommend this program because many of the people who attend are a lot older.

Not being able to meet people my age was the only downside.

The school had a really great atmosphere. The teachers were brilliant, the course was well structured and a great introduction to a language I had never done before!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Make the most of your time there, meet as many people as possible and participate in what you can. Just get involved and most importantly try to speak, which is very hard for beginners but pays off for sure. :)

Teachers changed too much in just two weeks.However, this may have been due to high season. The school offers free wireless internet access but in most of the areas the signal is too weak.What a pity.

The teachers were great and the lessons also fun. The Superintensive was not really that useful. The first week was kind of boring, but the second much better. I would book intensive the next time and use the extra time to explore the city more. YOU SHOULD GO!

The only shame was that there were only 3 classes of different abilities, and my language level did not really fit into one of the 3 offered. But that's perhaps to be expected as November is not peak time! Still, it was fun and my Spanish improved a lot so was worthwhile!

Taronja School is a very small school. Because it's a small school the teachers and students are close. The quality of the lessons was good because mostly one to one contact. I had an excellent family. Valencia has been of course the most famous city because of the river park and Kalitrava buildings. But the city centre is more pleasant. And there is a lot of smog in the city centre due to trafic and Sahara sand. But the beach is wonderful.

That was nice to meet happy people from different parts of Europe and speak, drink and eat with them under palm trees in such an interesting and pretty country like Spain. I am glad that the school organised tours and dinners.
