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...

Maybe the only not flattering comment is that they should better evaluate how to create the classes, according to the real language level

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!

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.

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.
