School in Alicante is damn good, and the teachers explain every thing really good. In just 6 weeks I got the level C1. And before the language course I didn't know anything in Spanish.

Teaching standards were very high. The teachers were friendly and helpful and the classes were well planned and clearly structured - I learned a lot in a short time. The shared flats are cheap and very basic. The school was not very efficient in organizing the shared flats.

A language school should not allow students to speak other languages besides Spanish in its own premises. Those students, speaking English, German or any other language daily, seem to me having a demoralizing effect on students instead attempting to learn Spanish.
