The knowledge and implementations of teaching methods was very thoughtful. Clearly they take great pride in what they do, think carefully about who they are teaching and tailor the instruction to them. The conversation class was especially good. The teacher was excellent at choosing engaging topics and including everyone in the conversation. I have 32 years experience in teaching foreign languages and even I learned, in addition to improving my Spanish, some insight as to what I may implement into my own classes.
The company is extremely helpful and their support and help doesn't stop when you leave. They check in while you are there to make sure things are going well

The teacher was very nice and we had fun and laughed a lot (in addition to learning, of course;) )
Especially for Cartagena. A sign at the entrance would be very helpful for the first day to find the school

Teacher, methodology
Lessons on the 1st day were lost due to a bank holiday! Unfortunately no leisure activities were offered - too bad!

The teaching staff - all excellent and supportive
Not Enforex, but Neuva Lengua; very strong on verbs and verb structures; I found they were weak on vocabulary. Seemed to be an assumption that we all knew the vocab we would need, but that is not the case for many students
