What students liked about Academia CILE, Malaga
School is physically situated in a very beautiful old building in Malaga Center. Teachers were nice. The methods and facilities could be more modern. Me, as the beginner in Spanish, felt that the rhythm of the education lessons followed mostly those who had already learned more. There should be a starters’ group or the student should know some basics of the language beforehand. Anyway, all over the experience of short course was ok.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you go for a short course: learn some basics of the language before you go! Enjoy Malaga!
Other comments: When teachers used any kind of printed word lists and pictures, it helped to follow the theme (although my vocabulary was small). I highly recommend to use pre-prepared materials with word lists etc. to support the learning process of the students.
The teachers are like family and the lessons were extremely fun. The material is good and the location of the school is a dream. The age of the students varies, I would say from 16 years to 70? I went to this school for half a year and can recommend it to others.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Come prepared to do homework to reinforce what is learnt in class. Malaga was colder and wetter than I expected so come with layers of warm clothes and boots. It's worth going to the cinema in town - good range of independent or thoughtful films, many in English with Spanish subtitles - good way to improve the language. Also lively and open music scene at Shakespeare pub, a great way to meet new people and socialise in Spanish.
Other comments: I think the teaching would benefit from role-play, acting out scenes to help expand vocabulary in context and apply grammatical structures.
The lessons were very good and it was fun to learn. The teachers are very friendly and funny, you feel very comfortable and the atmosphere is very familiar. But the property is dirty, broken and cold.
