I doubted if I was in the right group. I missed a lot because I couldn't follow the teacher and some students . That's why I missed sometimes the possibility to ask something in english. In spite of that I liked the hours being occupied with the Spanish language.

They lack organization or facilities to create a new class according to students needs. I was bored at some point because I was not in the class level that was proposed to be in. Also, there are no leisures in the school, too bad.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Be careful, they can send you to study at a level lower than yours, and you'll waste your money, time and effort. There is no individual approach, even if it’s obvious that you already know the material, nobody cares about it, they won't let you change the class.
Other comments:
A very negative experience. The classroom was divided by furniture (cabinets), teenagers were studying behimd that "wall", so it was very noisy and distracting. The assessment on Susanna's exam, who conducts the so-called exam by herself, is purely subjective, and I felt she biased me. Which was confirmed a couple of days later, when I passed the exam in the other two schools and my level was higher.

Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
I liked most the focus on learning how to practice verbal communication using the immediate context of Malaga and people’s lives and needs while living in the city. I liked the ability to go more in depth where necessary, and not just stopping at the book.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
It may not be what most people would want, but would highly suggest spending time alone away from foreigners in the school or your partner and get involved in the city, having to explore and get things done. Also I highly suggest watching Netflix with Spanish subtitles and Spanish audio on as much as possible, while continuing to supplement your own independent learning through an online course lime duolingo or babbel.
Other comments:
It is a lovely highly professional school and administration that I would highly recommend. The main suggestion I have is to offer opportunities for greater immersion with local Spanish people for those more ambitious to learn faster. I know there is ‘home-stay’, but as an adult it felt too restrictive for me who likes his own independence. Instead, I would be looking for activities, sports, gym classes, recreations to join up where common interests could be focused with Spanish as a default language. There is a temptation at a language school to socialize primarily with other students where English takes over. I had to distance myself from the other students and felt badly as they were a really lovely group and naturally, it meant there were some lonely times searching out ways to connect with local population/life. However, I noticeably improved much faster than the majority of students in the two weeks.

Other comments:
The classes (in our case) and the textbook somehow seemed uncoordinated - so much that teaching time was lost because we had to guess what the teacher actually wants from us. The school is extremely in love with its established rules. For example it is not allowed to attend classes if you're more than 5 or 10 minutes late. The classrooms were usually quite narrow. The recreational activities had the character of "Please no additional work for the school" and were usually organized from the outside (for different schools together).

Other comments:
I was VERY dissapointed with the host family. Five students in one house seriously diminished the "family" environment. Just one small bathroom shared between the 5 students! Food quality & quantity was poor. I moved out to a shared a villa with other students which was MUCH better & I would recommend it.
