What students liked about Escuela Bellavista, Santiago
Classes and teachers were a lot of fun! Focused on grammar, but because of the group size (four people) and level (intermediate) we also got to practise talking quite a lot and could do everything in Spanish, without translating. I think one of the students was frustrated though (or I'd be if I were him) because he had been at the school for several weeks already and studied at the same level the same material already once. This affected the others too, to some extent at least, there was pressure to advance and not perhaps go so deep into things that were unclear. The number of activities was a really nice bonus!

They do a great job of gauging your skills and matching you with a curriculum that works for you. It's obvious they take a personal interest your effort to learn Spanish to make sure you get the most out of your classes. I did a couple weeks of group courses and took a few private lessons as well. I highly recommend the private lessons--they are worth the additional expense because you get more practice and can focus on the things you need to improve most.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Take the time to practice with your classmates during breaks. It goes a long way!
The teachers were really friendly and very knowledgeable. I felt like I learnt a lot in a very short time. The classes were relaxed and fun and the small number of students meant that you felt comfortable participating in class and that you got enough individual attention.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: It's good to know the very basics before commencing classes (even if you are starting in the most basic class) such as numbers, as there is a little bit of assumed knowledge and/or some things not covered in the classes (nor should they be as I think that would be a waste of time)
Other comments: Really nice place to learn Spanish, the environment and staff were wonderful. I really enjoyed my time here, however I did think the price of private lessons was a bit too expensive (and unfortunately this prohibited me from taking these, although I would have liked to).
The class size was perfect. The teachers were wonderful and made us feel comfortable speaking and making errors in Spanish. Having a little party for a departing student on the last day was a nice touch.

Other comments: I recommend the school. I did not participate in the free extra activities, but I am sure that would've helped my language even more.
The relationships with the staff, the homogeneous levels and the small number of students per lesson, even though one is sometimes only with English and Portuguese which is not the objective.
