Private lessons really helped improve my Spanish and definitely worth doing as they solidify what you do in the lessons! Also brilliant as my teacher (Jenny) was super relaxed with what time I wanted the class and made me really enjoy learning Spanish, especially as we were able to talk about relevant issues and interesting topics which made it all the more exciting to learn.
Other comments
All the teachers were super friendly and very funny (sometimes even a bit crazy which I loved) and the students were really nice, plenty of students meeting up out of school house to eat or do activities , a very sociable school

Classes and teachers were a lot of fun! Focused on grammar, but because of the group size (four people) and level (intermediate) we also got to practise talking quite a lot and could do everything in Spanish, without translating. I think one of the students was frustrated though (or I'd be if I were him) because he had been at the school for several weeks already and studied at the same level the same material already once. This affected the others too, to some extent at least, there was pressure to advance and not perhaps go so deep into things that were unclear. The number of activities was a really nice bonus!

They do a great job of gauging your skills and matching you with a curriculum that works for you. It's obvious they take a personal interest your effort to learn Spanish to make sure you get the most out of your classes. I did a couple weeks of group courses and took a few private lessons as well. I highly recommend the private lessons--they are worth the additional expense because you get more practice and can focus on the things you need to improve most.

The teachers were really friendly and very knowledgeable. I felt like I learnt a lot in a very short time. The classes were relaxed and fun and the small number of students meant that you felt comfortable participating in class and that you got enough individual attention.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
It's good to know the very basics before commencing classes (even if you are starting in the most basic class) such as numbers, as there is a little bit of assumed knowledge and/or some things not covered in the classes (nor should they be as I think that would be a waste of time)
Other comments
Really nice place to learn Spanish, the environment and staff were wonderful. I really enjoyed my time here, however I did think the price of private lessons was a bit too expensive (and unfortunately this prohibited me from taking these, although I would have liked to).

I would have liked more homework. I understand that you are leaving time for people to explore the city but I think people can devote more than 10 minutes a night to improving their Spanish if they have chosen to take Spanish classes in the first place.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I love Valparaiso, so don't miss to go there.
Other comments
I love Santiago a lot, so I came already back again. The quality of the school is very good, you learn a lot, and you can practice also in the afternoon, they have loads of things going on for free like extra grammar lessons, excursions etc. For me the best school in South America, I also was in schools in Peru and Argentina, but Bellavista hits the top!

Do your homework. If doing a homestay, try to stay with Sra. Angelica Fontecilla. Her home is warm and comfortable and she is wonderful. 15 minutes from the school by walking.

The only negative point was the organization. Not the classes, they were excellent, but there was someone to pick me up from the airport, but did not know where to bring me!! But in the end everything worked out fine.

most of the students are in holiday and don`t want to learn very fast. If yoy want to learn very fast, it`s not the right school - it`s for the group-courses. If you have an individual class, it`s better, I guess.
