Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Do all of the social activities as most of them, like club DILE and the cooking class, are a wonderful way to improve your listening. Try to communicate in Spanish as much as possible, and avoid falling back to speaking in your native language when at social events. Let the teachers know if you are struggling. The first week is definitely the most difficult, but you just need to persevere and keep going.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Definitely use the offered activities, you get to know the people very easily and it is very cheap e.g. club/tapas tour/trips on the weekend
Other comments
as a beginner, it is very difficult to understand everything as EVERYTHING is done in Spanish. It may be beneficial to the learning speed but in my opinion the extracurricular activities should be announced in English as well...

Due to the off season, there were 5 students in my group. (Only 3 students attended mostly) Two classes were held in the morning and had two different teachers. Both of them were very good and explained clearly to the beginners. I recommend this school, if you want to improve Spanish.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The school is small and homey. They organize a plenty of activities. I went to Las Fallas just for the sightseeing and didn't speak with new people. However, you can make friends and improve your Spanish by participating in the event.
Other comments
The school staff is very kind. When I asked about Las Fallas (famous fire festival) and good restaurants, they investigated it by internet and handed me the information printed.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I would recommend to participate in the school offers at least during the first week. They help a lot to orientate oneself and to socialize. Furthermore you learn many interesting facts about Valencia.
Other comments
I consider the school as being highly recommendable. Extremely well trained teachers manage to get across a lot of knowledge in an entertaining way. I was only 2 weeks there and I could noticeably improve my speaking and grammar skills. Only slight criticism for the relatively poor air within the rooms that often have no windows. But in the existing air conditioning system a remedy could be found.

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.

The whole package! The teachers put a lot of effort in teaching, even when we did not understand everything. Thanks to the after school activities it was never boring. Also Valencia itself has a lot to offer as well as its neighborhood. I enjoyed it very much and did not want to leave after the four weeks were over. My Spanish has improved a lot during that time. I can only recommend it!
