Taronja goes above and beyond in teaching Spanish to a diverse student audience powered by a fine-tuned system of rotating classes and teachers. The pre-entry online test managed to put me in a perfect class so I could learn efficiently from the first lesson on Monday. Optional evening events felt very special, one can meet own teachers in a relaxed friendly atmosphere there and use these occasions to exercise even more. It was my first Taronja visit, but very probably not the last one.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Don't miss the Friday evening events. Follow the school's advice and use Spanish also outside the school on every occasion, it will help a lot.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I went to the beginners class because I did not study so much, but I think it would be better to study the basics because I could not keep up with it from the middle.
Other comments
I am thank to the staff members and teachers for helping me even when I was troubled with the class, but I thought it was a bit unfriendly for the taxi when I left for Japan early in the morning. The taxi arranged by the school take a reservation, but the taxi in the city they told me the phone number but did not take a reservation and I was not confident to do it by my self because I was not confident in Spanish. As for the host family, it was good, but they supposed to change the sheets and towels every week, but they did not do that for the last two weeks. I did not tell them because I thought that they did well to us enough. However, they asked me go out for dinner at the end, and they kind of asked me who take care of the payment, and I said I would like to pay because they took care of me, but in the end I needed to pay for their daughter's also. I didn't care so much if it wasn't so expensive, but the total was nearly 100 euros which was high for me and I was delighted to be a good host this time, but I felt very disgusted. I thought bad because I had to leave the house at 4:00 am on the last day, so I intended to stay at the hotel, but they told me that it would be okay to extend the stay and they even arranged a taxi, and I was thankful because their daughter was nice to me. However, I finally ate only breakfast and they told me something like they don't need to cook for the dinner even though I paid for the extended stay. I went to the restaurant for lunch and ate, so I felt strange somehow because they didn't provide lunch for me either. I would like to study abroad for a short term again, but I'm done with that host family and I thought that I would like to have an apartment alone next time.

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.

I liked the location of the school, but not the building itself - the rooms without windows. There was also no air conditioning. It is more difficult to assimilate new things in such stuffiness and without space outside the window. Compared with the language schools in which I was before, my progress was minimal. Organization of the school good but too much formalities

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I would not advise the school immediately. Several students dropped out because they could not follow it. Acoustics (Vaga) locally bad. Teacher (Alba) talked 3/4 of the time, too fast and indistinct (articulation). There was not a good use around the pedagogy and/ or lesson structure. This is my 10th language I learn but the result was far below my expectations.
Other comments
Also director Jenny started on day 1 with an introduction that was not easy to follow: Too fast (both English and Spanish), no check whether it was understood etc. It was charming, nice people but it didn't work.

Since I participated in the super intensive program it was hard for me to take part in social activities. Either I did not have lunch either I had to wait for a long time after my lesson began with the activity.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!
