Additional information
Positive aspects of school
The school is not a large one so that the number of enrolled students can be very small at specific times of the year. The end of the August is such time. Even if there were some cultural or social activities planned, they were cancelled because there weren't enough students to carry out such activities. So those who are considering to study at this school should keep that in mind.

All the teachers I met were very kind and friendly, accurate and experienced while teaching at the same time.

The lessons were exciting, not only had my language skills been developed but my knowledge about the country, the culture, and the people too.

The thing that I liked most about the school is that they managed to make learning Spanish fun. Normally during my classes in University the classes seem to take forever. But in Escuela Montalban time passes like no other. This is definitely because of the teachers the school employs. All teachers keep you engaged throughout the entire class with fun games, constantly asking questions, fun current topics to talk about.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I would definitely recommend that you stay for a minimum period of 4 weeks so that you can really feel at home in the Spanish culture. Trust me, if you decide to take a language course here you will not be disappointed.
Other comments
Besides the awesome teachers Escuela Montalban has, they also make sure that you experience Spanish culture to the fullest. They plan cultural activities every day and on weekends they even offer scuba diving, hiking in the Alpujarras, and a weekend in Morocco. I cannot wait to go back!

If you can afford to stay in a hostel (30-35 euro per day), do - it's really worth it. Very nice people, it's safe (locked every single moment) and you can try local food in restaurants.

It was a good mix of both grammar and conversation. I feel like the conversation part of the course really helped me learn the language better.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Granada is a wonderful city to visit. It doesn't feel like a big city and there are so many things to see. The overview of the first day was very helpful.

The teachers were very friendly and helpful, made us talk a lot and chose interesting topics. We were only 4 people in my class, which was great!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Living in a shared flat is much better, often host families have their own lives and won't talk much Spanish with you anyway.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Go on the trips with the the tour guide Juan. He is excellent.
Other comments
The school itself is pretty, with a nice courtyard, good amenities like clean bathrooms and many computers with internet. DVDs can be borrowed and watched at home. The people that work there, including the manager, his secretary, and all the teachers are extremely friendly, fun, warm, and knowledgeable. I had reserved for one week, then extended it to two weeks, and then the day before leaving reserved for a third week, I was enjoying myself so much. The apartment that we were assigned to was very big and had everything we could need, and we made friends and had a lot of fun while living there.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The Alhambra is worth seeing as well as the flamenco show in theatre. If you want to go out at night I can recommend the disco "Granada diez". The disco opens at about 1 o´clock in the night, but don´t go there before 3 o´clock. There won´t be anybody before 3.
