Student opinions about Taronja, Valencia

Verified reviews only, uncensored. All student opinions from students who booked a course at the school with LanguageCourse.net.

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.

I liked the teachers. Especially Salva. Very energetic, patient, pleasant, tactful and respectful. At first it was hard to immediately switch to speaking, the first week I think it was a failure, but then I started to speak. Thanks to the school and of course the students in my study group with whom I interacted outside of school. Therefore, 2 weeks is not enough, a month would have been fine. Those were very busy and happy days.
Disliked
Organisation within the school. They didn't tell me anything, they didn't show me anything. I didn't even know where to fetch water, where the entrance was, etc. I got to school on my own for the first time, I asked them to tell me how to get there, no one told me anything, they could at least send me the route. I asked where to buy a bag and they said there were lots of shops. There were many administrators, but they did not help. I was the only Russian-speaking person. It was very difficult the first week. Also, they didn't give me a student card and there was no discount in museums.

Quality of teaching / language progress: Very few activities focused on learning about the culture and nature of the country. Thank you for the flamenco, salsa and the outing to Calpa, which a large number of students did not attend due to lack of places. Very unpleasant.

Very useful and engaging teaching mode. Clearly I will only speak for my own level: I appreciated the choice, in the C1 class, of the conversation mode preferred to the standard purely didactic teaching mode. Dynamic and passionate teachers. Fresh and international environment. No dress code or restrictions. Adequate lesson times, with breaks and taking into account the academic quarter-hour.
Disliked
They said there would be free activities but they were all extra charged. In addition, they asked for suggestions on the activities we wanted to do, but they were not given much consideration.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Do not have expectations about accommodation. Be aware that the price will be high in relation to what is offered.

Everyone was super nice and helpful. Organization and activities besides the school were also good. Suggestions were collected what the participants would like to do and those were then also implemented. Top. The average age was fortunately a little higher. There were some people my age and older, which I had not expected. We had a nice mixed group and there was something for everyone.
Disliked
12. September was the first day for everyone in the new rooms. Therefore, everyone (including the teachers) had to get used to it.
Some of the teachers were completely new and lacked experience or some of them didn't have a concept yet (sometimes a bit helpless). But everyone starts at some point... Apart from that, one week was far too short for me...

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 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.

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.

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.
