The school was fine, so were the teachers, however, I was not happy about my placement, but since I only had a week there and was placed in a class that was too easy for me, I didn't learn very much. This made the experience somewhat disappointing.

They organized lots of activities to keep you busy and to get to know the other students. A social activity almost every night. For example: paella night, beach party, windsurfing, beer + tapas night, cooking class. It was great. They really offer more than just Spanish lessons. Besides that, everybody in the school was really friendly (teachers, staff, the other students) and everything was well-organized.

Go to the social events, maybe not all of them but the ones you are interested in. It provides a good opportunity for meeting new people.
Other comments
The accommodation was a big disappointment. The internet did not work throughout my entire 8 week stay, the TV did not work and many of the lights did not work. What made it worse was that the landlord never did anything about it despite promising to on many occasions. I felt I could have learnt more if the lessons had translated some English into Spanish or vice-versa. Sometimes it was hard to keep up with the teaching because of this.

This school is a really value for the money. They have many more good activities than other schools. I attended a lot and it really makes a difference. The "intercambios" are fun and very useful for making local friends as well.

City of Arts and Science, Ceramic Museum (not because of the Ceramics, but because of the decoration inside), IVAM (modern art), Biopark (best zoo I've ever seen), tapas bars, montaditos, park, museum of history of Valencia, flamenco in the Cafe del Duende... There is so much to see and do in this city.

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. :)

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.

I Liked
