What students liked about Humboldt, Barcelona
Conversation class, the terrace on the roof. There was fresh food available (sandwiches and a different salad every day). The other schools only had vending machines. The teachers and the secretary were really friendly. The Welcome Beach Parties, etc. JUST TRY IT!

Other comments: There are quite a lot of Swedish students at this school. The information doesn´t list a percentage, but there were soooo many when I was there. They are really cool though. :-)
I liked the fact that the teachers were able to facilitate the lessons through Spanish without any of the meaning being lost. The constant use of the language provided a great means to pick up the language. Also one of the teachers was a Rory Gallagher fan!

Other comments: Had a really beneficial time at the school. Sad it was only for a week.
The teachers are really great and they create a very friendly and informal atmosphere in class. The worst thing is that sometimes the students within a class have different levels and slow you down.

The teachers are professional and very friendly, although some of them are a bit slow in the teaching process and do not ensure that every student can participate in conversation during the lesson.
