Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Do all of the social activities as most of them, like club DILE and the cooking class, are a wonderful way to improve your listening. Try to communicate in Spanish as much as possible, and avoid falling back to speaking in your native language when at social events. Let the teachers know if you are struggling. The first week is definitely the most difficult, but you just need to persevere and keep going.

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...

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.

The social activities were very good and the staff at the school always encouraged me to get involved with what was going on. It wasn't too big and there was a very friendly atmosphere.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
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.

This school is a really value for the money. They have many more good activities than other schools. I attended a lot and it really makes a difference. The "intercambios" are fun and very useful for making local friends as well.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
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.

I would have preferred to have a book, instead of single working sheets, I thought that was frustrating and confusing.

The beach near the village of El Saler in the Albufera National Park. Very nice, quiet, almost no people and great waves! To be reached by bicycle in about 1h. As well by bus.

Make the most of your time there, meet as many people as possible and participate in what you can. Just get involved and most importantly try to speak, which is very hard for beginners but pays off for sure. :)

Teachers changed too much in just two weeks.However, this may have been due to high season. The school offers free wireless internet access but in most of the areas the signal is too weak.What a pity.

The teachers were great and the lessons also fun. The Superintensive was not really that useful. The first week was kind of boring, but the second much better. I would book intensive the next time and use the extra time to explore the city more. YOU SHOULD GO!

The only shame was that there were only 3 classes of different abilities, and my language level did not really fit into one of the 3 offered. But that's perhaps to be expected as November is not peak time! Still, it was fun and my Spanish improved a lot so was worthwhile!

Taronja School is a very small school. Because it's a small school the teachers and students are close. The quality of the lessons was good because mostly one to one contact. I had an excellent family. Valencia has been of course the most famous city because of the river park and Kalitrava buildings. But the city centre is more pleasant. And there is a lot of smog in the city centre due to trafic and Sahara sand. But the beach is wonderful.
