What students liked about Academia El Capitán, Las Palmas
I loved the approach to teaching with regular formal style classes and one day a week of outside of the classroom study. Excursions and cultural outings are a great idea and bonus also. Loved the staff and cheerful approach to conducting things.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Give it a go. This is a delightful language school on an amazing island. The school nicely reflects the warm, relaxed island character of this amazing part of the world.
Other comments: The staff and teachers also embody the best qualities of this fabulous archipelago. Serious Spanish within a professional framework but gaining much more thanks to the location and spirit of place.
Friendliness of the teachers and staff, quality of the classes is really high, excursions and activities that are fun, interesting and offered at an affordable price. And most of all the passion with which the people there work.

Other comments: Muchas gracias amigos!
We had a small class ranging (over a month) from 4 to 6 students. All were friendly and supportive and created a fine ambiance for learning. Our teacher, Pilar, was also very friendly, supportive and highly competent.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I would suggest that students try to use the weekends to see other parts of the island; to hire a car if possible. Gran Canarias has much to offer and it would be a shame not to venture beyond Las Palmas. We found the cultural progam very enjoyable and informative and it was a pity that we were the only ones to take advantage of it.
Other comments: We enjoyed our time with the administrators of the course, Monika and Angel, when we participated in the cultural program. Both were friendly, informative and great company.
The school is of a very good standard. Demanding teacher. A good balanced division between grammar and conversation. Noticeable progress in my language level.

Open class day and additional excursions. My class had students in the same age group, 40+, which helped to keep the study process on equal levels for all!
