There was a Spanish teacher named Sandra who taught us in the pre-intermediate class in a very excellent and professional way. I missed the opportunity to greet her when I left the school. I want to greet her now and thank you very much.
Many thanks to the people in charge of the international office of Maximo Nivel. They are very kind and they helped me a lot, especially thanks to Kelly.

The classmates in my class from the second week to the forth
You shouldn't send any students to the houses which have a bad reputation such as Marta Perez. I had a traumatic experience because she served us rotten food. Moreover, she discriminates. Her attitude is totally different towards between Caucasians and others.

Professionalism. Oportunity to meet local people through Tandem. Ambience of school and garden. Convenient location.
Well organised. There is opportunity to change teachers to find one that suits you. Drinking water is not and should be freely available.

The location
Do not spend on a flight ticket before you have a signed confirmation from the school that they will COMPLY with the the offer such as 4 hours group studies at your level. Take and confirm a level test BEFORE paying anything.

The tandem programme. This enabled me to meet and become friends with local people and English/Spanish language exchange.
Well organised and professional. I feel the partner travel agency could have provided more excursion options for mature travelers (other than biking / hiking). Teaching the first week not as good as the other three weeks which was excellent.
